Judder since the update

You are not alone. I've got it on multiple devices, including the iPad.

    Yes! I thought it was time to up the dose on my morning meds. So glad I'm not the only one.

    BTW, same result on
    Nexus7
    IPad
    Samsung Galaxy S III

    ...what is a judder? :oops:

    I had no idea ... I assumed it was a combination of "jitter" and "shudder" ... But I totally made that up.

    EDIT: found it online! "A rapid or spasmodic shaking". (I liked mine better.)

    Anyone else noticed the screen judder since the update.
    Im playing on an iPad mini retina 32gb with loads of space, so I'm confident its not the fact I'm using an antiquated tablet.

    Yes. But it seems to be worse the further out you zoom. If you zoom in for a close up view, it doesn't seem to shudder as much.

    It was bad for me for around 30 seconds after installing the update, then great for the next few play sessions. Now, every 30 seconds, it starts to stutter... Judder :)... Badly, gets hard to scroll, and real annoying.

    Playing on an Acer Iconia with 1gb ram, over 1/2 my 32Gb storage free, quad core, Android 4.2.2 ... Not stressing for resources to run the game. :)

    Yeah...my game auto updated ( I was secretly relieved) but there is all kinds of lag now. It seemed to get better after I cleared all the handshakes and collected all the buildings and everything, but it is still pretty bad. I hope they send out a hot fix for this sometime in the near future. I do know that my fingers will be getting a break for the next few days....i'm keeping my playing to a minimal for a couple days. After the Easter event, i'm pretty "tapped out". Hah! 8)

    Mine has more of a lag. Is that the same as a "judder"? The screen is lagging badly, every time I try to move around my town.

    S5 on KitKat - got it too.
    Seems to start/happen more when there's a lot going on on-screen, like cash from tapped houses. Particularly bad when trying to get to the centre of my town - 4hr tasks with Jake's Hairdressers, Java Server & Skip's Diner all next to each other had it having fits. Had to inch towards it, clear one shop & retask character(s), then do the next to stop the game from crashing.

    Dunno how a simple "kill Event" update could stuff up so badly, instead of just reverting everything...

    Yes since the update arrived it's painfully slow to move across the screen.

    You just need to go into the premium items menu. You can remove the "judder" for 600 donuts

    yeah my 4 was laggy before but it was just a bit annoying, worst thing is i'm only using the 4 because my 5 is being repaired :lol: now it's just unusable. hope they fix it soon.

    maybe everyone should log a complaint
