Tapping last Fed causes freeze

A bug was found : it is easily reproduced . If you Tap the last of the 3 Feds , and hit a house or other interactive deco , the two windows opening up simultaneously causes the game to freeze up . For me on Kindle Fire this has occurred specifically after touching the racetrack and tapping a Fed who was the last in my SF.
On my iPhone 6+, I can click 3 Feds but then I go to the next neighbor and the game shuts down

    He means when you're tapping a Fed in your regular Springfield to get rid of it.

    Yes, I've encountered this glitch many times. It's very frustrating. All I can do is close the game and restart.

    Try this:
    For iOS: double tap the home button and swipe the app up off screen (older iOS tap and hold app icon, tap red dash)
    For Android: Tap Background Apps button (the square to the right of the Home button) then swipe app off screen.

    Turn off device.

    Turn off router (assuming you have a router)

    Turn off Internet Access Device (Modem). For me that's a satellite modem. Could be a Cable modem, whatever...

    Wait 15 to 30 seconds.

    Turn on Internet Access Device and let it boot completely.

    Turn on router.

    Turn on device (I'm using both an iPad 2 and a Nexus 7 to play).

    Start game.

    If that doesn't work, then try uninstalling and reinstalling the game, because you're missing out on a LOT of presents. A lot of my friends are still tapping gifts in my town and I'm still WAY ahead of the curve because of the Feds.
