The iPhone version of SimCity sucks. The game has not been scaled down to iPhone size very well; it's obvious that the interface was originally designed for bigger screens. It takes far too many taps on the screen to do anything, and the game doesn't include an autosave feature, which is a strange omission.

Basically, don't use it. The desktop version is what you want.

I agree all the way. It was 10 bucks when I got it. Wish apple did refunds :/
