Here's the thing. I live in the sticks and my only options for internet access beyond dial-up are limited data plans. However, I have internet through a satellite provider that gives me free unlimited access from 12am to 5am everyday. In order to take advantage of the bonuses without using up my data limit very quickly, I claim achievements between those hours. I then stop short of the daily maximum so that I can earn achievements in the apps during the day to claim the next morning.
Probably not the way you intended for users to do things, but it's all I have.
I don't understand why it is set up to prevent me from earning achievements after I've claimed the daily maximum. If it wasn't I wouldn't have to sit here with a calculator trying not to go over the maximum. I could just claim what I'm allowed and then earn more for the following day.
The thing that really makes it an issue though, is the fact that here where I am, (central time zone) the system resets at midnight. I know the faq states that it should reset at 6pm, but it simply isn't the case. I'm including a screen capture of daily puppies to show this. This app leaves the status bar at the top of the screen on my iphone which shows the time, and since I was able to claim the daily achievement, which shows the time till reset, you can clearly see that it does in fact reset at midnight my time.
Anyway, I just don't see the point in tying how many mPoints we can claim, to how many we can earn. If I play the games I should get credited for the achievements I earn whether I can cash them in for mPoints or not. It's only fair.
Thanks for listening,
