  1. What device are you using to download the application?

Answer:       Unfortunately, there is no way you can start another city within the current application. In order to build a new one you need to delete your application and reinstall it. Thus, your progress will be lost and you will start working on another city. Sorry if the game feature has caused any kind of inconvenience for you.
