Force close I've been loving this app for a couple years now but some ok in over the last couple updates something happened that makes the app force close and my phone would need to be turned off to use app. This is very frustrating to say the least

A data connection is needed to use. I downloaded this app to keep me busy while I was out of country and often without any way to connect online. This made the app unusable as every time you try to launch a game it needs to connect online and verify that your copy of the app is legitimate. I'm very disappointed with this and regret spending money to buy an app that treats me as if I pirated it. If this is ever changed I would rate much higher.

Can't play still... If I put my phone on airplane mode it won't let me play because it had to validate a license or something please fix. It will do this after being on airplane mode for 1 day and refuse to let me play until I hit a spot with internet which in some areas where I live is few and far between. Please fix this DRM issue or remove it please. Thank you.
