Installation freezes Installation stops at 94%. No error message, nothing moves on the screen. My phone supports it, something else must be wrong. Tried several times, each time the same result.

Interesting A little clunky, and problematic due to the bevy of languages used for buildings. But over all a solid application.

HORRIBLE AND USELESS! It is a stupid app. If you think you build buildings... you don't, you just look at pictures. And it didn't even let me use my email adress. It said it was wrong... but it wasn't. It is just useless. All it does is take up space on your phone... trust me on this one. DON'T DOWNLOAD.
