    I installed the update and my game gets the "Unfortunately, Tapped Out has stopped" message after the EA/Gracie Films/Fox Logos when loading the app. I'm unable to load the app so far, I haven't tried any troubleshooting so far. I can only speak for myself after installing the update. I'm running a Nexus 5.

    I'm getting that too even after a reboot. :(

    I updated and got right back in, but I didn't see any major changes. could be because I have all my characters tasking except for Mr Teeny.

    The gremlin count told me I earned 10 probes, however my probe count did not increase and this was after I updated.

    The update asked for permissions to Photos and Media on the device. Quite upset about this as there is no reason that this should be needed.

    So I've tried restarting my phone and now I've re-installed the app. The same problem occurs now before I can even launch the app to install all the content updates. So I'm now in a bad place. I'm waiting to chat with EA to see if this is a wider issue.

    That sucks. I'm not updating my android until it's a mandatory update.

    Yeah. I've tried fix permissions, deleted dalvik, deleted cache before after reinstall. Still crashing.
    Thrilled to say I can get in to my town on an updated older phone though. :) Good luck

    Probably something to do with the new permissions as noted by McYahoo. SlimKat weekly 8 rom here.

    It's not for photos & media SPECIFICALLY - that's just the way Google now groups permissions.
    The new permissions are to read & write data to your external memory (eg. SD memory card). That could be so you can move the app across to the external memory, or so that it can save your game data on there instead of on the phone itself.

    A while back Google changed Android's security on external memory so that an app can only see their own data on it, not the whole of the external memory's data. That meant wiping all the permissions for that, and apps have to re-apply for permission to access/save to your external memory.

    If you want to see what specific permissions an app now wants, you have to scroll all the way to the bottom to "Permission Details".

    Game was working just fine before the update... now it crashes right after the FOX logo. Tried clearing cache/restarting, doesn't work.

    Does anyone know yet what the update was for?

    It defiantly wasn't for the probe count for the ones you receive from sending grem aliens to neighbors.
    I'm still not getting probes added to my total.

    Only getting probes added for the ones left in my town, and I'm lucky to get 4 in a day :( ... I was really hoping that's what the update was for.

    I'm speculating that it will be new premium old things on offer and a sneaky tie-in mixed in with some new glitches. :thumbup:
