Perfection in Simplicity!. One of my go to games. Still shooting for 4096. My wife loves 2048 and she is typically uninterested in game apps. My only wish
would be if your final screen would be visible once the game ended.
I love it!. This game challenges my mind and is a great games for kids as well
Loved it!. It's educational so I can play it in school!
Luv it. I luv this game don't get me wrong but I'm getting tired of the ads popping up when I'm playing the game is pretty awesome but the
ads are making it to where I don't even want to play the game any mor
Get it. Okay so first of all. Love this game. Download it. Seriously. The only problem I'm having is the fact that it lost my progress
which is so frustrating because I was doing quite well. Otherwise really
Best puzzle game I've ever played. It took a little while for this game to warm up to me, but once I started getting a strategy down I was hooked. I seriously love

Awesome!. This is a great and addicting game. You should really get it!
Get this game!. This game was downloaded just because I thought it would be fun to play. I just randomly got this game. It is so fun and passes
time! Kids will luv this game like I did. You don't need to know how to
Greath games. It is very very fun and intersting game!
Love the game, but.. The game is great and challenging, but there are way too many ads. And if you accidentally press on them and then go back, the app
crashes. Please fix.
Addictive.. I've been playing this for like, four hours.
New favorite game. It's been awhile since I found a game 'worth my time' and this hit the nail on the head! I can't hardly put it down. Love it!
10 outa 10. It is a Stacey game that will blow your mind, a game that helps you with math and most importantly requires no wifi so you can use
it on long car rides.
('-') awesome app. This is the best game ever! I have been playing this game for 5 months and it still doesn't get boring! It is awesome for a brain
work out.
Super jeu. Je suis accro à ce jeu ! C'est tellement simple mais difficile à la fois. C'est le passe-temps parfait pour mes trajets en train
MOST AWESOME GAME EVER!. To the developers, THANK YOU! A super addictive game that is ingenious! Just like the old slide the number tile games this puts
awhole new twist on it. Don't hesitate a second, download now! You will
Ads and how to deal with them:. Anyone can agree that 2048's developers have gotten out of hand with the way they constantly bombard us with ads. I, for one, do
not wish to financially support a company which stoops to such low tact
Great game, hate the ads. I love this game. I hate the ads. I think they make the game lag. I also don't like that they come up every time you open the app.
Since the update, the game seems to be lagging. It'll freeze while I'
This game.. This game has truly changed my life and I will never forget it just the way those numbers collide so just remember before you get
it you should truly cherish every moment you have with it
App keeps freezing. The app keeps freezing and then deletes all of my progress. Please fix.
Pretty good overall. The ads get in the way; I often accidentally hit them when swiping down. Also, the app slows way down after reaching 8192, taking
much longer after swiping for the tiles to move. Other than that, lots
GREAT GAME!. Very addicting. But easy to put down and pick up where you left off.
Completely addictive. This quickly became my time killer/ relaxation. Easy concept. Great UI. Have achieved a couple 2048 but aiming for 4096. Also
looking for other games of the like.
Good game. Good game, but I would prefer the new number spawns to be more predictable.
Good but needs a bigger area!. I enjoy the game a lot but the area is a 4 x 4 area. It makes it hard should you add a easy (10 x 10) mode and a medium (6 x 6)
mode and a hard (4 x 4) mode? it will be nice. :D
Addictive. Totally addictive but boy did they make the ads so annoying and intrusive that you have to pay to get rid of them
Amazing. It features so many things and it is great for kids easy to learn
Great game. Helps speed up the time at work
Cool. Great way to pass time and rage, easy 5 stars!
Colors. It would be cool if you could change the color of the tile things, it would make it more colorful then just browns and other
Ok. Awesome but gets a little boring after awhile, but still fun!
This app. I like it a lot, it is easy to learn and keeps you entertained.
️. there is nothing better than 2⃣0⃣4⃣8⃣
great game but ads ruining it. i have been addicted to this game for months but the ads are ruining it. twice ive had the 4096 tile and then i leave the app for
a while and come back to an ad and when i try closing the ad the app c
Best game ever. 2048 never gets boring. I can play it for hours.
Love. I really enjoy it! Challenging but solvable!
MULTIPLAYER VS !. Multiplayer VS is a great addition to an already great game!
Good time killer app!. Like the app to keep me busy on the train!
Excellent bug fixing. I am very impressed with their response to my complaint about a bug in a previous release. Aside from that, I LOVE the game!
I love this game!. This game is great. I am so addicted. Keep up the great work guys!
The Best Game Ever. I love it it is very fun my new high score is 5950
Challenge Mode Crash. Challenge mode crashing issues fixed! Hallelujah!
Multiplayer. It stinks that you have to sign in in order to use multiplayer.
Good, but lose the sounds. The sounds are annoying and cannot be muted. Otherwise, 10/10.
Crash. Love the game but since the addition of multiplayer option, I have not been able to play the challenges without it crashing. I
get almost through the challenge and it flashes my score and "play again
New update broke game. I play the challenges. When the game is over and as pops up. When I close the ad and select try again, the game ends with a score
of 0. Then it hangs. :-(
LOVE ️️️. This game is amazing, I love the new challenge levels, however, the last few days after you fail the challenge it completely
freezes, you have to close the app & reopen it every time. Please fix
Love it!. 2048 is a challenging, but fun game! But, I would like if once a you lose on regular mode that one of the options were return
to menu.
Addictive!. It is so fun to play in the car when there is no wi-fi!
Love it. This game is awesome. Simple but interning
Addicting but update hiccup. The update has caused a few freezing issues. Other than that, I love this app.
2048. Very addicting! Keep up the great updates!
Awesome game but.. This game is awesome and addictive, but I just wish there was bluetooth multiplayer, if they did I would give it five stars.
Great app pointless features. Multiplayer is pointless since no one ever comes on it.

Game is great but this version is unplayable. This latest version introduced ads and possibly other stuff that slows down gameplay considerably. A serious 2048 player can
swipe more than 3 moves a second, but with this version, the game will lag
Used to be great - now lags painfully.. This is the best game ever made but the pleasure I once had from playing it has faded and has been replaced by a growing
frustration caused by this unbearable lag. Fix this - you're ruining the entire
Used to be great. This game used to be fun and addictive. Now it's so slow and unresponsive that it's just frustrating. Hope it gets fixed.
Fun but.. The game itself is 5 stars but all the freezing up and just closing down is a 0. Great game put together terribly.
Crashes and freezes. This is my favorite game on my phone but it is constantly freezing and crashing my game -- which is very frustrating when you're
far into a game. The constant problems make me not even want to play it
Great game, lousy ads. Great game. Paid to remove annoying ads. Ads still show up at end of every game. Unbelievable!
Great game but freezes up too much now. This is a great game. Can play it any time you have a moment to spare or you can sit down for an hour or more playing it. But
lately it's been freezing and lagging and even loses my progress. More tim
LAGS. Love the game but it lags too much );
not much strategy. it got boring after a couple days. ok game
copycat. does ketchup make anything original? they just steal original ideas and port them over to iphone
Get rid of that stupid 1!. I like the game enough, but if I don't play it often enough, it puts a 1 up like I have a message. Annoying.
Too much lag!. I used to enjoy the game but now there can be several seconds lag between the time I swipe and the appearance of new tiles. Too
Fun game. Fun game, but can't add friends.
Awesome, addicting but freezes too much. Loved this game for about 24 hours but started freezing every game .
2048 & iOS 8.1.3 Have A Problem!. 2048 is a really good game. Or at least it was until I installed iOS 8.1.3. Prior to that, 2048 seemed generally stable. Since
then it seems to quit 1 in 4 plays. I don't see a clear pattern of what t
Too many crashes. . usually right when you are closing in on 2048
Great game, but freezes often. Game freezes and lags very often? Please fix!
Not so great. Hard to make the 2040 or whatever is the tile number, is great game to wasted time for sure!
Great game ruined by recent update. Gr8 game but now notice the slowdown after recent update. Wish I could revert to previous version which I would rate at 5 stars.
Would be a lot better if. The game let you pick the size of bored to play etc
Fun but buggy. Fun game - but after installing iOS 8, whenever I leave the game and come back later, it starts a new game over again. Very
Lags now that there are ads. This game is addictive. But the latest update introduced a massive lag to the game (iPhone 5s 64GB running iOS 8.02). This is now
not playable.
So many ads!. I HATE THAT THERE IS SO MANY ADS! They are constantly popping up when I am trying to do challenges!
Enough with the ads!. I see update description says big fixes and more ads appear.
Annoying App Sounds. The noises the app makes are incredibly annoying; there is no option to turn sounds off within the app.
Ads Still Come Up after 2.00. Game was great fun.Ads became super annoying especially on phone.Still pop up after you pay to remove.Disappointing
