    Oh ok I misread that but besides the crashes do you get the device full message whenever there's an update

    No. It has 32GB of built in storage and I have a 16gb SD Card in it.

    Ill do a full uninstall and reinstall, but it seems a lot of other People are having this same exactly problem, also on Apple Products.

    Ridiculous.

    No. They earn a lot of money on Android players.

    The only problem with Android is that there are so many different devices, using different versions and, even worse different kind of brand overlays. You know HTC sense, Sony Xperia, Samsung whatchumacallit.

    Whats a problem on one device, might work fine on the other. I use a n Asus TF101 and a Sony Xperia Z1 ( sometimes a xperia S as well ) and i have no issues at all with this update.

    This I can surely understand, my Phone is the Newest and best one that you can buy. I dont understand their Logic. why would you not make an update work for new devices?

    Not enough testing? Or, in other words, lazyness? :wink: :P

    I'm on iOS, and my game just became as laggy as yours. Tried iPhone 4s and iPad retina. So, it's not android, something is just wrong.

    Even testing for the newest version isn't going to always work. It also has to take into account all of the other apps you have running, specific service in your area, your carrier (4G is not the same to all service providers unfortunately) and a host of other factors. It would be nice if everything on every device played together nicely but it just doesn't work like that.

    As a tester for devices, I can say that it is very difficult to ensure your product works 110% on every single device. We have to test on various IOS devices, Android devices, and now with our app on TVs, various TV makes and models. There's simply not enough time in the day to hit every single device prior to release and assumes it will work on similar devices. There's also a budget to work with. We know we need to order the latest and greatest, but we aren't able to get them on release day (due to normal customer demands and such).

    I see that EA is in likely the same position - not enough time to check every device known to mankind, and continue to develop new content.

    EA hates everyone. And the only thing they do love is Money.

    Since updating today, the game stutters very badly on a Nexus 7. Horrible. It stutters, but not quite so badly on an iPad. I'd say they're spending their time trying to get the game to work on an Etch A Sketch. Once they've figured that out, the rest of our devices will be golden.
