Wiped my character - ★★★★★
I have terraria on Xbox, PC, and mobile, and it's the best! The new update was great at first. I killed the Skeletron and went into the dungeon. I paused the game and put my ipod into sleep mode. When I got back on, the app restarted. Everything seemed normal, until I went to choose my character. The picture where your character is at was empty, and my character's picture was on the "create new character" space. His name was still in the right place though. I chose my person and got onto the world. The screen blinked on then off. Everything was black. When it loaded, it was just a floating torso and the background. It blinked again, zoomed out, and then my character was at the spawn. Except, he had no armor, and my inventory was wiped. I had the blade of grass, murimasa, light's bane, and the fiery greatsword!!!! I had on my jungle armor that took ages of killing hornets for stingers!!! I was transferring everything in my chests to an update world so I could have the stuff from the new biomes!!! I had EVERYTHING! It's outrageous the kind of stuff I had! A year of hard work GONE! Why would you do this to me! I demand you fix this at once! I can't believe a game as great as Terraria would have that big of a bug. In all honesty though, terraria is my favorite game ever. I also love the new game some of you are making, Starbound. Keep up the good work on both of them, and please, tell me if I can do anything to get my stuff back. Please!
Great game - ★★★★★
Few things that have been annoying though are the dye mob/plant spawn rate.
Orange- I built a massive underground dirt farm for these and after 300+ hours in that world, still haven't found a single bloodroot.
Cyan- built a farm in the underground snow biome. After 12 continuous hours, not a single beetle.
Violet- jungle farm similar to my snow farm, and in 12 hours, gotten just 1 dye.
Pink- built a huge cactus farm and check it similarly to bloodroot. Only found 1 pink in over 300 hours as well.
Another seemingly non existent mob is the mimic. With both above farms, I have platforms with dart traps activated which "should" prod mimics that spawn there. With running the above farms for hours and hundreds of hours of map exploration, I still have yet to come across one. (Statues spawn them yes, but pointless when I want the item drops).
Not sure if I'm just getting super unlucky or if these are glitches, but it's really frustrating when pretty much the only items I want now are seemingly impossible to obtain.
Last thing that was a bit frustrating (although not terrible) was the fact that dragon armpit can only be made with cobalt, mythril, and adamantine. Had to make like 10 worlds and advance all to hardmode before I finally got mythril. Not the worst thing but it would be nice to able to use whatever ores spawn in the original world...
Regardless of these, this game is incredible and definitely worth it.

Honestly this game is amazing. I know this isn't a comment page, but to newer players, this is a pretty good mobile version of an originally PC game. It has everything it needs for the pre-hardmore setting. I know that if the developers can't add a hardmode yet, they probably won't, because it can't be done yet. However, I do suggest working a bit harder on bug fixes.. (Just in case a developer is reading this..) Because I simply cannot get the game to load properly on my iPod 4. It ALWAYS crashes during the creator credits. If someone of authority is reading this, I highly suggest working on this, instead of worrying about the special edition holiday updates. (Believe me, they are great too, but I think it's more important that players can even open the game, let alone explore what the game contains..) I also think that the Demonite Ore spawn rate should be toggled a bit higher, because I literally could not find ANY in the Corruption. (And the game's description of the material suggests that it spawns more naturally in the Corruption than anywhere else..) Regardless, defeating bosses is another way to recieve mass amounts of the ore, so as of that point, I don't think it's a major problem. (Just for the record, since I cannot open the app on my iPod, I use my Kindle Fire to play instead.~) Other than these issues, if you're thinking of purchasing this title, GO FOR IT. If it loads, it's 100% worth it, I guarentee.
