Direct touch? I have not
Developer Feedback Received
The use of Direct Touch would be a very cool idea, but I think it would require a lot of work for the developer to implement that. I have already contacted Maverick Software and found them very responsive and keen to make their excellent and fun aps as readily available to as many people as possible, so you never know, they might want to try it. personally I think what would make Cupcakes! easier would be more sound effects, so that we could hear if we have managed to put liners in cake pans, batter in liners etc, that would make the game much more playable and more fun. I have this ap, as well as More Sundaes and More Salad! The latter two are easier because there is no cooking involved. However I intend to persiveer with Cupcakes, I still can't manage to get four cakes into the pan, but I keep trying. If you would like to hear an audio walk through of how to play, I have made one and you can get it here: http://t.co/vIyR8Jw I hope it will be useful to someone.
More Grilling App Works Great Too
Exciting News from the Developer!
Isn't it great news about Cupcakes! Glenda at Maverick is so good, I can't wait to try the new update.
And now to More Grillin'! Thanks for trying that one out, Jennifer! As you saw, I tried More Popcorn, and it was broken, so I didn't fancy buying more of them in case they were broken too. I loved the sound of "More Grillin'" so I might treat myself. No, make that will treat myself. If I don't see you post it up I'll do it myself when I've played about with it.
Update Is Here!
I got the update this morning and I am very pleased with it! Putting the liners and the batter into the cake pans is now a breeze. Also everything is labelled much clearer so that choosing is much better. The one thing I am not clear about is whether you need to still turn VO off when you frost and top. Once you have chosen what you want there is something which says "Cupcake". I am not sure if double tapping this will frost your cake. I will get some eyes working on this and find out as soon as I can. On the whole though this is a great update and I would like to congratulate Maverick and thank them for being so responsive and helpful.
using the latest update of the app
Hi, Melissa. I don't have as many answers as you would like, but I do have suggestions. Dragging ingredients is a problem, but here is a suggestion: how about trying double tap and hold like you would if you're moving an icon on your home screen? The problem of you not seeing all your batters or toppings etc is easy. All the batters, toppings etc are on a number of pages so you need to do a three-fingered swipe to change pages. You swipe left to go up a page, swipe right to come down a page. I have tried eating a cupcake with someone sighted, and even when the picture had disappeared you still hear the munch sound, so just eat it until you've had enough is my advice. I'm afraid I can't help with your Facebook problem because up until now I've been afraid of my creations being too much of a mess for me to send them anywhere, but I hope my other answers helped you some. I hope you keep enjoying Cupcakes! Happy baking.

Hi. I think that one pan cup
Hi. I think that one pan cup is not labeled. It's pan cup 5.
having trouble putting ingredients in the mixing bowl
Okay so I don't know if anyone looks at this, but I'm having issues putting the cupcake ingredients in the mixing bowl. Oddly enough, I at least got one liner in the pan, because it asked me to choose the batter. Then I went to the cook book and I'm making some sort of cake, but now I'm royally stuck. It says drag the ingredients in to the bowl, but I don't know what the gesture is for that. Does anyone know? Help? I emailed Jennifer, the original poster of this app about this issue, but I haven't heard back from her. So, this is me posting on here, in hopes someone looks at it, even though it's like on the fourth page of the apps/games section and answers back to me. Thanks.
