Fully unlocking all content should unlock the 5 Finger Discount achievement. Still no luck on the Regular achievement though...

It occurred to me that I hadn't closed and reopened the app. each day, I've done it now and will see if it makes a difference.

That is what happened to me.  I never had closed out of the app.  Once I did that, and gamecenter on the top said "welcome huffn", then I got the app.  Having it open for three days didn't seem to trigger it.

Got the Regular award!  I just went back into the game after completing it so I could see how many of the achievements I'd completed.  When I clicked on the game center icon within the The Heist app, I got a notification that I just got the Regular achievement.  So if you're wondering where yours is, maybe click that icon?

Nope, none of this gets me that last achievement. I've had the app for more than 3 days, did the same first block puzzle about a dozen times, and gone into achievements about 6 or 7 times. I also quit and restarted the app at least that many times too.

No idea, maybe I just have to forget about it for a week or so.

I just got it randomly when I loaded the app up the other day. I think it's purely based on the number of times you load the app up and nothing beyond that. Sorry it's not a better answer but it's the best I can do!

Probably could have gotten that Night Owl achievement when my daughter woke me up at 4:30am. I was thrown off, however, when she horked on me. There should be points for that too! Lol!

You can redo any three another early morning if you really want the achievement.

The "being horked on" achievement is unofficial though, and she already got that one.

P.S. Ooh I got the Regular achievement just after noon here, just short of exactly 4 days after I first got the app.  It must be within the 3-day "window".  I didn't have to play any of the puzzles to get it, just launched/logged in to GameCenter.

I have the same problem with "regular." I've logged into the app every day for at least 5 days, getting the "Welcome" message each time, but still no regular! I also solve a puzzle or two over again each time I log in. That doesn't seem to help.

I've tried both leaving the app open and force-quitting it in the multitasking bar. This is quite annoying! Got all the other achievements and loot the first day.

I have been also having the same problem with Regular.  This now makes 4 days in a row.  However, I completed all of the puzzles already.  Has anyone gotten the Regular achievement, after completing all of the puzzles.  Or is this a case of I am up a creek with no paddle?

Yes, I did it that way. Are you shutting down the app and then reopening it, it may help. Failing that, contact one of the staff and give that person the lowdown on what you've tried.

Just load up the app a bunch of times and eventually you'll unlock it, it seems... No better way of doing it that we've found so far!

I played through The Heist on an iPhone 3G (finished all of the puzzles, got both prizes). Now I'm playing it through on an iPad 2; I finished all of the puzzles, but I don't get Five Finger Discount. Based on how the images show up, it looks like the server is telling my iPad that I've already redeemed my second prize, which means the achievement doesn't happen. What do I do?

It isn't a 'launch on three days' thing, it's a 'load up the app x times' thing, where x is a number that nobody has worked out yet. Just keep loading the app up, and you should be fine!

To get the regular achievement you have to play the game at least once for three days in a row (closing it, opening the next day).

Does anyone know how to unlock the third game on the shelve? I have solved all puzzles and got "Puzzle Agent" and "Eets" but the third place on the shelve is empty.

I read on the Taptaptap it was World of Goo but they only had 25,000 copies to give away, so I guess that expired?

If I had just been a little more patient...closing and opening (without force quitting it) over and over seemed sufficient.

The Main character does this to you. You have to leave the game and come back or she asked you to do something and lies... It's automatic practically.

I don't see you having Quick Fingers - Solved a puzzle within 3 seconds.

For some reason it won't unlock for me and I blasted through in much less than 3 seconds on a single puzzle.

Does it work for replays?  Didn't seem to do anything for me and I tried 10 times+

EDIT _ NEVERMIND!

It wasn't working on Robot Blocks - I tried again in the Log puzzle instead and it worked the first time.  Go figure.
