Thanks. I've reported this issue as well. I'm attempting to tweet @popcap and @plantsvszombies but they're ignoring me. I think I'm just going to keep pestering them until I get a response. This is really inappropriate behavior from the developer behind an app regarded as "Essentials" by Apple. A bug this easy to replicate should not persist for YEARS. it's ridiculous.
Two years later and still the same issue (on iOS 9, 10 AND 11): The infuriating „problem" is that they fixed this bug long ago for the new crappy „free to play" version of PvZ which they exchanged the premium version with (pay once, play forever) after Popcap had sold its soul.
This really speaks volumes. All we costumers who paid for the game (and are only able to access anymore thanks to the App Store cloud saving feature) are left with this bug while the basically same free version got a fix for it ages ago. They probably don’t fix this for the premium version cause they want us to ditch it and have us pay 100s of Dollars for in-App purchases and watch tons of ads in the inferior, greedy free2play version of the same game.
Says a lot how they treat once loyal customers. If you don‘t invest a small fortune in one of their greedy cash grab versions of once respected franchises than they don‘t even take a little time to reply let alone fix a bug that‘s known for two years and has been fixed for the other version long ago. Shame on Popcap and shame on EA aka the devil.
But just for info for people who always blame EA - Popcap happily sold out for many $$$ and already decided before they got bought by EA that they wouldn‘t make quality premium games and only focus on cash grab F2P stuff anymore. Fine ... But not taking care of a 2 year old mini game and achievement breaking bug just because the customers use the paid once version is really low - Even for PopChEAp
