            Review. the app crashes all of the time. it also constantly freezes. its very frustrating when playing the game.
            Way too many bugs/glitches. Considering I paid money to download this game, you would think it would be a little more polished.1. It crashes ALL THE TIME.2.
            It will freeze up and after waiting a bit might come back or might cras
            DONT get until you update!. Crazy glitches, app is closing out, it's not worth it
            Great and fun game but.. The bug is making it very difficult to play the game
            Terrible. Lots of bugs and it cost much for the value it is
            Stuck. Every time I try to enter patchys town it crashes
            Why? Ha. I don't really know why, but the game always kicks me off. i haven't even past the intro/tutorial yet. I know I'd like the game,
            just wanna play it ha
            Disapointed. Don't buy this game. It freezes and closes so frequently that you cannot finish. It has a great concept, but it needs to be fixed.
            It is not worth your time or until they fix all the bugs.
            Bummed!. I jus updated and now I can't get back in. It takes a while at first. From 4% to 8% which took like 3 minutes then it would kick
            off to 68% then I get kicked off. Otherwise a really great game to play
            I hate in app purchase. Ok when I played this game for a couple of days my bill came out to be like one thousand dollars I mean what
            SpongeBob is to glitchy. Cool new update but it's very hard to play because after I click on the Krusty krab or any other store it crashes. Also lower
            prices on jelly or make them easier to find no one buys them so why make t
            Don't bother. The game has been crashing since the Valentines update. I can't fulfill orders cause I can't make anything! By level 24, money is
            no longer a concern and it takes so long to move to the next level. No
            Crashing. It is a good game but it crashes a lot. You can't do much because of that.
            Great game but…. I hardly ever write reviews unless there is something wrong and there is I bought this game yesterday for money and the first time
            I opened the app it worked fine but now when I try to plant something
            Cant believe this app!. I used to love this game, untill it shut off and now i cant get back on it! It freezes alot too!#makesmemad
            I don't like it. I don't like it! It never works right and I just can't get it to work! I hate it! So if you are reading this and haven't got this
            game yet I would not get it if I were you!️
            Memaw. Will type this again,, giving this game 3 stars, love the game but right now it stinks, it keeps crashing, going off, won't let me
            collect what I've won, taken some of my other stuff, Halloween and Ch
            It's fun but .. It's really fun but when I get on it always goes to home and glitches and that gets me mad
            Just keeps crashing. Very frustrating that the game keeps crashing. Already had to start over after 6 months because of last crashing problem. Now
            after the Valentines update it is crashing again. Can't play at all becaus
            Flower shop disappeared. In the middle of making bouquets, my flower shop just disappeared. I finally found it locked again until level 27. I was on level
            25 and it will take forever to get to 27 with the current set up. I ca
            Crashes. It was a lot of fun, put now it crashes. I don't know if it is the update or what, but now it is annoying.
            Valentine Crashes. Crashes anytime I try to enter the stores to produce more items. Please fix!
            Meh. When I got patchys bikini bottom it stops at 66% and crashes It kinda pisses me off
            WHAT!?!?!. It takes FOREVER to load. I have to wait, like, 10 minutes!
            Slow tap!. When the Christmas update camp the clicking became super slow, I want the rapid clicking back so I can make things a lot faster!
            Mustanglady82. How are you suppose to drag a chum burger to spongebob?
            Addicting, But Needs Much Improvement. Spongebob Moves in is a very diverting game! In relation to other games such as "Simpsons Tapped Out", and "Family Guy: the quest
            for stuff" this game is much similar. Simpsons Tapped Out is an older
            Soso. My little boy like this game. But definitely NOT worth 3.99! Also, MOST of the items are not allowed to "turn/rotate". I want to
            rotate a building to face one direction, but not allowed. Needs some wo
            App not opening allowing me to play the app I paye. Yea. The title covers what I have to say about itPlease fix this app
