Top 25% of screen unusable in friend neighborhood

Weird, that sounds more like an issue with your device than the game.

    Same here man, on my Galaxy Note 3! i thought my screen was * up on my brand new phone! turns out if u drag it down just a smidgen, u can tap dat egg.

    this is only in neighbors towns though, in my town the whole screen is tappable with ease.

    Same here on android.
    It's very hard to tap on the 1st quarter of the screen clockwise.
    It's difficult to scroll if you start tapping on the same area. Sometimes it works sometimes not unless after trying to move in a different direction.
    It seems also that after you get all eggs it starts working normally again.
    As NMayo in neighbors towns only.

    The OP has iOS.
    And I tried cleaning my display very hard because I was thinking it was to greasy.

    Edit:
    I modified the part you quoted about scrolling because it's inaccurate. It depends on where you tap to start dragging.

    I've been seeing the same problems with my iPhone 5.

    When visiting neighbors, I'm not able to click on the top 25% screen but I can scroll down so that i can click on the content once its below the unclickable parts.

    Hmmm... i noticed this the other night too, the top part, not quite 25% of the screen on my device wouldn't respond when it was tapped. This was only when visiting friends. Next day it seemed to work ok. I will monitor this and see if it happens again. I'm on Android too

    I have the same issue.

    It's seems it's related to the small text under the friend bare the one that say, collect eggs..... Once this text is gone after you've collect the 3 action by your friends, the touch screen works again.

    Having the same issue, feels like it's on purpose. Just to make tapping harder than it is with the clutter money and xp.

    Good (?) to see I'm not the only one experiencing this issue.

    I'm getting this issue as well with my iPad. I got a bit of egg tap frustration earlier and almost put my finger through the screen trying to tap an egg in a neighbours Springfield. :oops: I've only noticed it since the Easter update.

    Me too on an iPhone 5 and iOS 7.1. I don't seem to have the problem on a 2012 Nexus 7 with Android 4.2.2.
