Having issues with Fruitpot version 1.44 & iPhone 7, no speech when spinning

iOS and iPadOS Gaming

Hi all,

I just upgraded Fruitpot to version 1.44.
I am running iOS 10.2.1 on an iPhone 7.
When pressing the spin button in the game, I hear the sountd effects when spinning, but the contents of the wheels are not spoken.
If I explore by touch, I can read the wheels, but I was getting the contents spoken in the previous version.

I am wondering if anyone is experiencing this issue.

Hi, yes same issue, and i even made the mistake of uninstalling fruitpot and reinstalling, bad move as lost all chips and everything i'd spun for. i am a bit angry about this loss really, as it took me ages to acumulate everything. i can't even restore purchases on this game like i can others. to disable voiceover speaking the reels automatically after making such improovement last version is not very good. i have the same ios and fruitpot version as the above poster. i'm using ia iphone SE ios 10.2.1

Hi! I have the same problem on my iPhone 6 running IOS 10.2.1, with Voiceover not automatically reading the reels and needing to explore by touch to know what symbols are on them: in fact, I think every Fruitpot player who uses VoiceOver has this problem; However, I wish to point out that the developer didn't deliberately stop the reels being read by VO: he admitted in the comments thread of the AppleVis App Directory entry for Fruitpot that he made a mistake in the coding of Fruitpot 1.44 which meant that VO couldn't read the reels, and he has already submitted a corrected version to Apple, which should hopefully soon be released.

Well, Fruitpot was updated today, and the problem has been fixed.
Kudos to the developer for such a quick turn-around.
Thank you.

I simply can't seem to wrap my head around this app, I think it's the fact that it's in landscape mode, and I am so used to everything being in portrait. I'm not saying it's bad that it's this way, I just know how to orient things a bit better when apps are in portrait mode. Ok, so i'm gonna spin the reels and i'll tell you what happens, obviously if I get one that has 3 different types of symbols, i'll ignore that. ok, here we go! Banana, grapes, banana. Obviously, we want to see if we can get 3 in a row. I have zero nudges. the first instance of grapes says that bananas are next, but I don't have any nudges. I listened to the podcast and it was done very well but it went by so fast that I wasn't quite able to work out how to work this game. For anyone interested I was able to get a jackpot, purely by luck and I watched a video and was somehow able to get 14 holds, none of which I really know how to use. I really want to like this game, and i'm so glad that the reels finally read again, but I just need help filling in the missing gaps.

I just installed the game today and when I open it all I can find is the info button, and double-tapping that doesn't seem to do anything. All I hear when flicking either right to left or left to right is heading and the noise letting me know that there's nothing else there. Btw I'm using an iPhone 7. I don't know what version this is but can anybody help?
