  • When sorting "Gift" is active, opening the Friendslist shows friends first, from which you have received gifts.


  • When sorting "Gift" is active, opening the Friendslist shows the list in an order not associated with any available sorting filter.

  1. Open Friendslist
  2. Sort Friendslist by "Gift"
  3. -> List is sorted, displaying the friends first from which you received a gift that you can open
  4. Close Friendslist
  5. Open Friendslist
  6. -> List is not sorted the same way as [Step 3]


That bug seems to only affect sorting by "Gift". Sorting friends by "A-Z" seems to work as expected.

    Same problem here with IPhone 6s just since the newest update. It goes back to alphabetically every time I open the friends menu, even though sort by gift has the check mark that shows it is selected. To fix it, I have to tap the button to sort alphabetically, close it out, go back in and tap to sort by gift. It only stays that way for that viewing. The next time I go in, it again is sorted alphabetically with the check mark on sort by gift.

    @CeruleanGirl For me, the "fallback" isn't even alphabetic. It's something different entirely.

    @Lucoire The original sorting method was chronological in order of how they were added. Is that what it’s doing now?

    @CeruleanGirl Maybe, I'm uncertain.

    @Lucoire apparently I didn’t scroll down far enough... it APPEARED alphabetic, but then there were about 7 or 8 friends at the bottom in a random order.

    Same for me since latest update, doesnt stay sorted by gifts. The sort isnt even what is use to be, by order of when added friend. It is some weird order that doesnt make any sense.

    Have to toggle A-Z and back to gifts to get the list by gifts but it doesnt keep that when you go out of friends list.

    So have to do that each time want to open gifts and get the friends to send to to sort to the top for easy gifting.

    I have the same issue I have to resort each time I open the list. Personally have to say I preferred being able to see people based on when I added them to my friend list... 🙈

    Opened my friends list just now and it was sorted alphabetically, but backwards! 🤨
