    Ipad running IOS 7.1.1. Severe lag, especially trying to visit friends. Got through about a dozen, then the app kept crashing. Couldn't even get back into the friends section.

    I have iterations of this game running on these devices:

    Nexus 5 w/ Android 4.2.2
    Toshiba Thrive tablet w/ Android 4.0.4
    HTC EVO 4G LTE w/ 4.1.1

    All are having the reported issue with varying difficulties.

    The problem is very similar in behavior to overloaded memory issues. In fact, the more content on the screen the worse it gets. i.e. more characters moving around, more buildings needed checked the more apparent the problem. So, it seems to be worse for those on more advanced levels based upon what I have gathered from the various posts and forums.

    iPhone5 since the update, severe lag in my town and neighbors towns and on certain neighbors or just random game crashes. This is frustrating as I do enjoy playing the game. I hope they fix this soon and the conversations in live chat read like you are interacting with a scripted program aka a BOT that supplies automatic response to certain keywords.

    New Samsung Galaxy S5, Kitkat 4.4.2. When it doesn't crash while loading (needed 3 tries before I could get into my town the last time I tried), the game itself is lagging horribly, which reminds me of how it ran on my terrible old phone. It was already crashing during the Easter update, but now it's worse. Add that to the lag and the game is now borderline unplayable.

    Serious lagging on iPhone 5 w/iOS 7.1.1. There were no performance issues during Easter, and I have the max available RAM. Crashes frequently when trying to access friends' Springfields. KrustyLand doesn't have the same lagging. All started with the post-Easter update.

    I have an iPhone 4S (with OS7.1.1) and just downloaded new TO update (4.8.1). My game lags horribly = to the point I can't play. Everything is in super slow motion and the tapping is off. I hope there will be a new update soon or please tell me what to do to solve this major problem!!

    I dont think the type of device has anything to do with this.
    There is something major wrong with caracter animation scripts in this update.
    I have half my town empty ground or packed with blue houses.
    Scrolling, tapping and collecting works perfect in these aereas, in fact in all areas without caracters.
    Also works fine as long as caracters are doing indoor tasks and are not visable.
    As soon as a caracter is on screen it starts to lag, and the more there are the slower it gets.

    You can add me to the list of people having issues. Lots of lag and freezing to the point of unplayability.

    I am having the extreme lag issue, too, both iPad and iPhone. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but still no luck. The game is basically unplayable for me until this is fixed.

    I cannot log in since the Easter thing ended and app was updated. I can log into my origin account but when I click the small box in the bottom left corner to access the game the donut spins for a little while and then the app closes. I reinstalled the app, closed all open apps, and restarted the tablet with no change.

    As said earlier, to me it is obvious this is related to caracters or buildings.
    Tried to fidle around to see if things changed, and whaddya know... when I put O'Flannagans in storage the lagging was reduced by at least 90%, and I can slide around at acceptable speed.
    May be different objects for other users though, but I notised that neighbour towns differ greatly.
    Those with less event buildings works better, those with the most crash the game when trying to visit.

    Realize it wont help those who cant log in at all, but worth a try for those who get in but struggle.
