Awful service 1/5
By 41 & fab
I had played this game for well over a year faithfully. I spent way too much building an inventory that randomly disappeared overnight. I emailed customer service for assistance, and nothing. NO HELP AT ALL. Very VERY unsatisfied. I would leave ZERO stars if I could!
Love the game but constantly have issues getting the diamonds I pay for. Says error or please try again later..says the purchase was made and will restore but doesn’t..I close and reopen the app and still nothing. My items go missing when I havnt used them all...whyyyy is this happening.
Fun game but it’s near impossible to play without spending any actual money. You use diamonds to buy furniture that is required for a design contest, which rewards diamonds to the winners. You end up spending several thousand diamonds on furniture in just ONE contest which MIGHT win you 125 diamonds. Good luck entering any other challenges now that you have no diamonds left.
Love this game but... 3/5
I love this game, BUT I think I think there needs to be an option to allow players to set a price when searching for furniture. For example: They allow you to search for Style, color, designer, etc., but won't let you set a price with the $ you have. I understand this is because it is an app trying to make money, but it ONLY makes it harder on the player. We already have to sift through HUNDREDS of items. Please make this an option. I love this game, but this part makes me rethink the ethics of of a game and the greed of the same game overall
What happened?? 5/5
I really love this game, I have been playing it for almost a year. About a week or two ago I logged in and all of my money and diamonds were gone, what happened??. How do I get them back??
I received a prize and can’t even use it. I was told not found in warehouse 3/5
I love this game but wish you could do full apartments instead of just one room. . . Some stuff is too expensive & glitches too much
Fun for a while 2/5
This game was fun until the most recent update. Now it constantly crashes in the middle of designing.
Enjoy it but items missing that I get as 'prize' 4/5
I love this app! Wish there was more money given when you completed the design but it's an amazing idea to add real products to an app. You get to see the approach of the top designs voted, if you aren't one of them.
I also wished they gave some diamonds or $$ for scoring +4.0. Just one product and $500 on completion seems less compared to the design requirements which always call for products way more than that.
Can the team please look into this?
- I recently received a prize for my design approach 'Moving to the hills' and the product is showing up in my selections but when I click on it, it says 'We're sorry. We couldn't find Messina Arm chair in the warehouse.' Can you replace the product if it's not available anymore?
It's a great app! Is it possible to add products from IKEA to make it affordable lol?
A bit of freedom would be nice 4/5
I have recently started designing with this game, and that has given me a lot of pleasure, however there are some major tweaks I would love to see fixed.
The challenges require a lot of certain brands. That’s OK I guess, but with the money rewarded, it’s hard to complete the challenges. The items are too expensive for the amount of money we are given. I understand they are trying to make money, but it’s quite frustrating!
My other major complaint would be that we can only view three unpurchased items at once. For me personally, I like designing without having to buy, so I can see how my room will look. A bit of freedom would be nice.
Other than that, the game is pretty fun
Scam alert 2/5
The game itself is fun. The cost of playing is huge, and if you go through one of their “earn more diamonds” sponsors be prepared to be slammed with spam.
Went all the way through a huge questionnaire, but at the end I was forced to buy one of three products (all grossly expensive) & now every option I opted out of is still contacting me- and no diamond payout. I should have known better, but learn from my mistake & don’t give your information out.
From now on I’ll stick with daily play.
I complete offers to get diamonds and they never show up. Contact Tapjoy support and they don’t respond.
Great entertainment, when it works 3/5
By designer upset
I love this app. It is fun to design rooms. However, for the last few days I keep getting the message “connection unavailable, cannot connect to your inbox”. What is going on? I have no idea as you cannot find a number to call.
Making someone put in billing info to update is wrong 1/5
I was without internet for two weeks so I haven’t played this game until last night I click on it and it takes me to the Apple store where they want me to put in my billing information. I keep getting error messages because my account is too low. Why is this happening? It says no charge until I purchase something but the error message says I have to buy the app. This was my favorite app. You guys are awful for what you’re making people do. I just want to play the game. I’m mad as heck! Only mean people would do this to their players. I’m deleting this app. Not fair! You’re losing players and it’s your fault!
Very Fun Very Flawed 3/5
For the love of God, please make the inventory sort by price. It is so frustrating to have to go through every item when I only have a certain amount to spend. Perhaps incorporate mini, instant challenges of some kind to build money.
This is a highly enjoyable game and I wish I could play it for longer periods of time.
Won’t work 1/5
By kim slone
My game won’t open it keeps saying can’t connect to inbox and I’ve messaged them several times in the past 4 days with no response from them and I’ve been playing this game for years I’m very disappointed with it right now
Won't load 1/5
Haven't been able to play for a few weeks because the game won't even load.
I EMAILED THE DEVELOPER & HAVE HEARD NOTHING😡 1/5
This is a fun activity. However, it could be better. First, there needs to be more rooms to design. You add 3-4 rooms per day, maybe. Second, the reward for 5 stars should be more. Third, more wall art should be available on the lower levels. Fourth, if one of the designs is outdoors, you need to have outdoor furniture selections. Fifth, the kids furniture selection is minimal. You need to increase your inventory. Sixth, you need the option of canceling FINISH. I have hit the finish button by mistake when I was going for the drop down menu to pick a color and, poof, it's gone and I haven't finished the optional items. That is very irritating. The positives...like the room requirements. Makes it more challenging. Even if it's simply, contemporary, or say, rustic. The graphics are superb. Colors are vivid. The turnaround on judging is appropriate. Bottom line, it's an expensive game that you can't spend much time doing because there's not enough options (rooms). For the limited amount of time you can play, it is fun.
Update 5/26...Huge suggestion for the designers...you should allow one item that is optional to be anything within our inventory. Sometimes it could be a huge area, other times, a corner, that we select whatever we want to go in the corner. Let's us use our creativity and imagination more, and will take longer to complete a room. Also, it will perk up the otherwise boring activity of judging. Just a thought!
Update 8/21...DEALBREAKERS! Over the past few days I have noticed a couple questionable practices while playing this game. The first thing I noticed is that when the room required a stool, my options did NOT include all the stools that I had in my inventory. I emailed the developer and have yet to hear back. Their customer support needs improvement. Today I noticed another problem. The room required a children's desk. Now, I own 26 desks. Those I purchased previously were all children's desks. However, for this design 23 of the 26 desks were deemed TOO LARGE FOR THIS AREA. But, I could buy another desk, some that were obviously larger than about 12 of the desks that I owned. Of course I emailed the developer again. I have spent a great deal of money on this game but I do play every design so I feel, until now, that it's pretty equitable. However, with these new findings I hope the developer makes the changes needed so that I can continue to support this past time.
8/26--Emailed the developer days ago and have not gotten a response. Got on Facebook and discovered many people are upset with the inability to use your purchased items when you want. This needs to be addressed!
12/18–I HAD OVER 5000 DIAMONDS WORTH OF INVENTORY WIPED FROM MY INVENTORY WITHOUT ANY EXPLANATION. JUST POOF, GONE. Contacted friends on FB that play this game as well and they had all been hit, too. Emailed crowdstar and have not heard back. If I could give this game a negative score I would.
UPDATE 7/16/2018—Improvements...They have increased the number of rooms they offer to decorate. They offer more limited challenges you can enter, requiring you to purchase the decor pieces at additional prices. Continued Disappointments...Your purchased inventory is not open for every challenge. I have written the developer over this many times and they have never gotten back with me. If I own 90 desks, they will only list, maybe a third of your stock to pick from. This is a big deal if the requirement is a specific brand, color, etc and you have one but they will not let you use it. In order to complete the challenge you will have to BUY another desk, and they are expensive. The only category you have full access to is your purchased rugs. Also, when you spend a million dollars worth of furnishings on your challenges you get new wall art, table art and floor plants. Once you get to the upper levels you will not receive these rewards. A couple months later rewards will appear in your stock. Also, their customer service continues to function below par. I belong to a DH community forum on FB and my concerns are universal for the group. One good thing is that now since they offer more challenges per day I can decline to enter designs that would require me to purchase a new item when I have a perfectly sized item in my inventory that they are not letting me use. This is a very expensive game to play. The rewards are not worth the investment. If you are on a budget, this is not the game for you.
I have enjoyed many hours of playing this game. I love the way the game is designed, but I don't like how expensive it is if I want to be competitive. You will never get a decent score unless you are spending real money. That's just the reality. I once read a review where the player said they never had to spend money and got high scores all the time. Well that has never been my experience. I had gone as far as to delete the game off of my devices a week ago, but after a couple of days I started playing again. Sure enough the pattern was the same. The claim is that other players vote and determine the outcome, but I don't think that is 100% true. Anyway, this is my opinion. Now I will delete this money-sucking game forever! 💰💰💰💰💰💰😏
Not happy 1/5
I am very upset! This game really isn’t worth it. They only give you enough keys and gems to play one game! If one does not have enough keys, you can’t submit your design. Even more frustrating is the fact that next to the “ vote” sign is a “buy”sign. I pushed it.... thinking it would show me prices... instead I bought stuff!!!!!! Without even knowing what I paid! It did not show me at all!! !
Absolutely LOVE this game! 5/5
I definitely recommend you get this if you like designing or creating! I’m addicted to it! I love how all the pieces of furniture are real and you can actually buy them! My only complaint is that once you buy a piece of furniture, you only get 5 uses out of it before you have to pay for it again if you still want it. But other than that, this game is the best!
Could be good but... 2/5
The first thing you need to know is that this was made by the same people that made covet fashion. If you've ever played that game, you know how unstable these platforms are. Although so far this game appears to lack the rampant cheating so common in the other game, but it's new and I'm sure that will happen (if you don't know what I'm talking about, open up covet fashion and take a look at the top looks: they are all the same. There is no way that would happen with the number of options to choose from if there were not colluding going on.)
My main issue with this game is that it never gives me my results. I have to track down which ones are still listed as "awaiting results" and then go see if the results are actually posted, which they invariably are, and then contact customer support, which is a joke if you understand these games and these designers because they don't care one whit about their customers, and then magically the results appear in my inbox in one big lump with no explanation or apology. Also I achieved a 5.0's result and have not been listed in the top looks for tat challenge, which pisses me off because that's what it says in the help that is all that is required to appear in those. There is no winning.
Daily prices are ridiculously small given the high cost of every single item in the inventory. The game cannot appear to distinguish between lamps and accessories. The prices are stupidly limited and if you get a five star result, the amount of diamonds is insulting.
I suggest if you play this, you only play the daily game and avoid spending any money on it. It may seem fun, but ultimately it won't be.
Diamond Issues 4/5
I’ve enjoyed this game over a year & my only suggested improvements would be for more choices for art, to be able to sort between diamonds and $ when shopping for new furniture & for it to cachet items you tried in a room or previous purchases to be able to find them again...like previously purchased or previously considered categories. My big complaint is when I do third party surveys etc on tapjoy I never am granted the diamonds I earn. After dozens of futile downloads games and quizzes the only diamonds tally from videos which causes me to play a lot less, before i learned you can only buy art with diamonds And this happened repeatedly I loved design home a lot more. Now I play much less. Thank you for this fun game overall!
Huge disappointment 1/5
By avery anne
This game does not allow you to truly experience and get the full use. I do not ever really download games and I am so disappointed again. I understand that most apps have a paying feature but I’d rather pay a one time fee of downloading the game rather than in app purchases. Making something to were someone can’t enjoy the game without it is frustrating.
More Filters 5/5
Great game. It would be helpful if I could filter my inventory so I know what is considered modern versus contemporary.
Used to love it, now they have changed for the worse! 1/5
By cara maca
Played consistently every day and really enjoyed. Actually purchased featured packages, which I had never done for any other games. Then new enhancements and version. They changed the daily prizes, you have to qualify! Very disappointed. Looking at other games to replace this one :-(
Although the premise of the game is fun there is a serious flaws with any type of customer service at all. You can post on Facebook something negative to try to get their attention but they will ignore it. And the contact us is no help. I have been trying for weeksto work out issues with tap joy which is another problem All on its own. aDDENDUM: I have submitted at least 10 help tickets through the app in the past. With the canned response that is similar to what is below. I have emailed at the address given multiple times copied them in the multiple times with the issues and have never heard back.I am not alone. Every day on your Facebook page people constantly talking about help tickets never get answered. I asked the same question on three separate occasions and never got an answer. I will send the questions again. I will gladly send all documentation in support for my lost diamonds again and I wait to see if you do respond without repeated response that you’re going to forward this to your design team. If you rectify the problem On the missing diamonds and you just answer my question i will change my rating
Pay Me My Diamonds 1/5
The app could be worth 5 Stars if they actually backed their words up with actions, like rewarding you your measly 400 Diamonds you just spent 30 minutes on a "survey" trying to earn. In the Tapjoy section for free earnings DO NOT MESS WITH THE QUIZES, not one has worked for me. Also the downloading of games if you play to a certain level blah blah, those have yet to reward me as well. As someone else said, it's an entertaining app, but expensive and almost impossible to advance without spending a little money. The free trials actually do reward you but again, you might have to pay shipping, or give a credit or debit number. BS.?
Hate the game 1/5
It’s so dumb
I loved playing covet fashion which is this app but for people instead of homes. I walked into this game loving home design and so excited to play until I realized that once I bought an item I’d only have so many uses for it. This just seems unfair and I never have enough money to even compete in challenges since I can’t afford to buy the necessary items for it again. Only having one table when you need two and can’t afford another set is quite frustrating and I wish this was changed. Thank you.
Amazing!! Impressive app. 4/5
Overall, this is a top quality and intricately designed, free app, that will leave you spending too many hours designing rooms. It’s addicting and you could find yourself dropping real $ on must have seasonal decor if you aren’t strong. That’s where they get you! There are two things I would love to see added/changed for this app that would improve the overall user experience. 1.) the ability to sell back items that you don’t want. Some of the prizes are items that I don’t like but I chose to design the room anyway and won said prize that’s just not my taste. At level 12, I now have at least 20 items that I will never use and would love to be able to get rid of them for some cash or diamonds And 2.) Give more buying options for each level for wall decor, plants and table decor. Once you reach level 10 it takes a long time to reach the next level and at this point, I am getting bored with the app because I don’t want to wait a year before I can have more buying options.
Love the game but.... 2/5
By Preschool Rocker
I love this game, but it freezes up and I can’t get it off the blank white page that says finishing at the bottom of the page. It’s been like that going on 2 days. I’ve tried everything but deleting the app and reinstalling it which says I will lose all data. That means everything I’ve bought, designed, and the $20 I just spent on diamonds will be gone. I’ve contacted Support. Got an email back which said nothing about what to do. If anyone out there knows what to do about this I’d like to know! I can deal with the voting issues. You’re right, when starting out, you are very limited on what you can do design wise.
I can’t open this app 1/5
By dream moradi
Hi, i can’t play the game for some days, why? Now i should remove this app from my phone??????
Serious lack of creativity 1/5
I love this game, and I put a lot of thought into my designs 98% of the time, taking into consideration the snippet about what the “person” is looking for. It gets really annoying when the same BS, black and white designs get voted 5.0 every time. I know the app designer can’t fix that, but maybe instead of just a single rating system, break it down into a few categories... one being did the design follow the brief synopsis of the persons style? Are there more than 2 colors? Etc., etc. also, there really ought to be a way to sort prize and normal “money” items, when looking for things to purchase.
Good game but very stingy 3/5
I really enjoy playing this game. Since downloading it months ago, I play it daily but I believe the furniture and decor and is extremely pricey considering how small the daily rewards are. Even when make making in-app purchases, most of your money and diamonds can be easily exasperated decorating one room. Make items more affordable & making it easier to earn more cash & diamonds would be very helpful ! :)
Can’t use the app anymore 1/5
I love this game and play it regularly, but I can’t even open the app anymore. It has a glitch screen that is blank that just says “finishing” and that’s it. Not sure if it’s the new update or what.
Great Game 4/5
It’s a great game but I’d like to design a kitchen or bathroom. Living rooms and bedrooms get boring overtime
I love it. I play it every day. Get this game!!!
I love the game but hate the support team! 1/5
I purchased a bundle and didn’t receive it. I contacted the support team and they closed my ticket without even responding. I started a new ticket on June 29, 2018 and they asked me to send proof and my Id number. I did both and I have yet to here from anyone.
Creative Game but voting frustrating 3/5
I love the challenges, interior design is a passion of mine. After submitting your room though don’t expect to understand the outcome. In my opinion: 1) voters don’t like color 2) voters don’t like mixing textures, prints no matter how well they work together 3) the black and white rugs, particularly the one with circles receive 5 stars at least 60% of the time 5) it takes diamonds to add the important finishing touches, art, plants, table decor, so if you don’t receive 5 star ratings (which pay 125 ) regularly you’ll have to spend real money to compete. Rarely if ever will a room receive a high score without these. 6) it seems I am voting in the same group of designers every time so the results will be similar most of the time as it’s clear “they” don’t like/understand my style 7) you move up a level each time the value of your designs reaches a million $, and each level offers specific art and accessories which make the room designs stand out from most, it’s all about what you’re willing to spend unless you consistently receive 5 stars for your designs 8) monochromatic groupings with all the accessories are preferred by the voters. You’ll have to decide if you want to create for “them” to receive inventory and maybe diamonds or create per your style, if you choose the latter be prepared to spend real cash to get inventory.
Addicting, but needs changes. 3/5
I echo what others have said about people getting ridiculously high scores for using monochromatic tones and not following the design specifications. I also agree a snippet at the top of voting screens reminding voters what the specifications were would be great. Im so tired of seeing rooms that DO NOT meet the specifications getting “top design”. I can’t afford to spend gobs on real money on the game and have taken advantage of some of the survey and other free trial offers to get diamonds, but it’s getting tiring always having to do this to keep up with replenishing art and plants. Also $500 a Day is nowhere near enough. It should be $1000 and five stars should get at least $500. And just as we can convert diamonds for cash, why can’t we cash in for diamonds? It’s a great game, but there’s lots of room for improvement.
Judging Needs Improvement 4/5
I love this game! I’d give it 5 stars however it is very frustrating to give a lot of thought into designing a room based on the description given only to find out no one really pays any attention to what the theme is or the “client” wants during the judging process. Such as a very modern black and white decor wins top score when the theme was a rustic cabin. Or client desires a soft neutral pallet for her bedroom and the winner does red and black. How about the client who wanted an English cottage feel for a living room in her grandmother’s home and the winner does a very modern masculine look. My favorite total disregard was a bedroom for a little boy in Minneapolis who loves baseball and is anxiously awaiting the season opener. I did what I thought was a great design for an elementary boy in the colors of the Minnesota Twins. The winner chose a girly look in all shades of pink with an infants rocking chair, pastel ABC blocks, and flowers for accents! I received an average score. It’s a great game If you can overlook the scoring aspect and I probably should spend less time on it. Maybe I’ll start doing that tomorrow... Or not!
Too much of nothing 4/5
I like the game but, right now it’s seems to have stopped. I don’t have any challenges and I’m having to spend money to try and finish because I’m not getting my rewards daily. I don’t know what is going on but it maybe time to let it go.
Very Expensive 1/5
Very fun, very expensive and just recently the voting is horrible!!! I know the game has glitches with votes. It's become very noticeable. I used to get a lot better scores and now the scores are ridiculously low. And a lot of the time my designs are the same as the top winners. It's also frustrating to see obviously poor designs get the top score. Something has changed in the voting.
I stopped playing for a year, then started again. I’m running into the same issues. I’m done with this game. I’ve wasted too much money!!
By K Designs
I enjoy the game BUT - you can do daily challenge and upon finishing get $2500. This really isn’t enough to do a daily challenge. There should be a way that you can obtain cash so you can play more frequently. For example, I did a challenge and have $500 in my bank. You can’t do a challenge with that little bit of money. I have to wait numerous days to do a challenge. I think they are forcing you to purchase diamonds. Secondly, the items to purchase should be in dollar order from less expensive to expensive. Sometimes I am searching for a less expensive item for 10 minutes. If you are a beginner, you don’t have purchase power on accessories. They are very limited. I also agree with others, that voting should be based on task. A lot of people don’t follow rules of the challenge. Beginners should not be put up against someone who is at level 20. There is no comparison there. Level 20will get vote since more is in their inventory. I hope some changes are made to this app with suggestions that are given by players
The game is fun and the designer stuff is beautiful....but....everything is too expensive and you don’t give enough of a prize versus the cost to design to keep designing. I refuse to spend real money in a game especially when it’s the only way to actually play it after the first 15 minuets. Needless to say I’ve deleted the game but thanks for a fun 15 minuets.
Be Prepared to Spend A Lot Of Money 1/5
Love the decorating. Fun but very costly.
LOVE but HAVE to pay to play 3/5
I would give this game a 5/5 but unfortunately with the way it is run, I cannot. As a new player who has been playing for a month, it is literally impossible to enter even half the challenges without spending real money on this game. The pay out is NOT large enough to make up for the cost of the challenges and furniture that you only get to use 5 times. I try and use the cheapest furniture possible but can not sustain a decent balance to play. I’ve gotten 3 5-star designs and yet the reward is only 125 diamonds? Take a note from your sister game Covet Fashion, please. Atleast I only need to spend money on that if I WANT to, not to actually play the game. This game is literally designed to make its players pay to play. Don’t fall into this trap! I will be quitting shortly when I have once again run out of money and diamonds. Trust me, this won’t take long.
Ever changing to hold interest! 5/5
By DA BUR
Best game on the internet, its so intestine learning designers names and works of art. Getting to see pictures and furniture you've used in this make believe world on television is exciting. Everyone can participate and there us absolutely no right answer for the designs. Great game!
The game allows an option to borrow but is extremely picky with what you can and cannot use, yet making any money to use in the game has increased since I first started using this app may of 2017
Great game but needs more accessories and artwork options 3/5
I love this game; but there is such a huge gap in levels, takes forever to advance up in levels. The very limited ugly artwork and accessories in levels 10 and under are very difficult to work with. Needs lower level requirements, way more options to purchase artwork and accessories, and once you purchase or win a piece of furniture it should be yours to keep in your inventory and not disappear after a a few uses. Makes getting high scores in lower levels impossible. Those with the highest scores are in the higher levels and have access to the best artwork. Not sure how much longer I can continue to play without better options.
