This app is unique for a couple of reasons. First, there are games in this app that are not sold separately by Hosted Games. Secondly, you can now play parts of games that you would usually have to pay for. This is a great way to help you decide whether or not you wish to purchase a full game. Finally, you can restore purchases from games you have previously purchased. In order to do this, you will need to have the previous purchased app installed on your phone.

I have quite a few of these titles, and I find I go back to them fairly often.

I have all of the choice of games and hosted games. Love them. The new app is a better experience, except for one little thing. On an iPad, every time I select a game to play, it changes my orrientation to portrate. I can only get it back to landscape if I do the home gesture then re-enter either hosted games or choice of games. Apart from that though, the app is really handy, oh and once you have restored purchases, they stick. I found that out when I restored them on the iPad and all of the games worked in their entirety on the iPad Mini and iPhone.

Hello all,
is anyone else having this problem with the HoastedGames, and ChoiceOfGames apts?
when I try to double tab on Restore purchase, the apts does nothing. but if I turn off voiceover, then the apts work. and I did try to remove and reinstall the apts, it still doesn't fix the problem.
