No plans to have full game on ipad or iphone since they don't support flash. We might build something that allows you to work only though.

Lot's of people asking about permanent hair. Quick answer is that IDK. Sorry!

No plans to sell or trade houses. Lots of tech problems with doing it and lots of support problems with doing it.
