Patch 1.2.6 is live on Android, and iOS Patch Information

To our loyal iOS players: we wanted to give you an update on what's up over on the Apple side. As we've mentioned before, the app submission process with Apple is lengthier and frankly, a bit of a headache in some respects. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we were forced to resubmit our 1.2.5 patch. 

Because Apple won't allow a new build to be submitted while a current one is in review, we had a tough choice to make. Complicating matters is the fact that Apple's app submission team is on holiday vacation from Dec. 22-29, during which time app submissions are disabled.

With those factors in mind, we chose to cancel submission of 1.2.5 in order to submit the build for 1.2.6. We did so yesterday, and our hope is that it will be available before the Apple team takes their break. We're extremely grateful for your patience and know the situation isn't ideal, but we ultimately felt this was our best chance to get you a bigger, better update sooner, with some issues addressed that were detrimental to the play experience for many players.

As always, follow our development blog at http://dashquest.tinytitanstudios.com. We'd like to thank our players for their support over the past few months. Have a wonderful holiday season, and happy dashing!
