    Kindle Fire user, no crashing, very slow loading between towns, 10-60 seconds each. Only have 50 or so friends.

    When I saw the tittle of this thread I thought they changed the cool-down time to 14 hours. I was a little disappointing when I found out the OP was speaking figuratively.

    A misleading thread title is almost as disappointing as buying a double cheeseburger with extra pickles...yet only getting a double cheeseburger with no pickles! Like sheesh McDonalds - listen to your customers!!

    Keep in mind it takes longer to load each new town because we are all at higher levels with more stuff in our towns every month.

    With a bunch of level 20 neighbors instead of 4yr vet max levelers you may go through quicker.

    You may go through quicker but that's not the problem necessarily.

    Two weeks ago I could zip through my towns. Now I can't. ALL my neighbors did not get tons of more stuff overnight. It's EA, not the towns.

    I'm still tapping neighbor's every morning in both town (at the same time) and it's taking me 50 minutes total for all 200. I always crash once near the end on my iPad but not usually on the iPhone. It is certainly slower than it used to be.

    Really? I was doing 10FP- 2FP visits last week and it was only taking me less than 10 minutes to hit 40 neighbours.

    Something is wrong with your internet/device if it takes you 14 hours for visits. Stop passing the blame.

    My loading screen takes between 45 secs and 73 secs per town load. I've given up on doing friend visits for now, I usually only have 10 minutes at a time to play.

    Before the Gil Update, it was taking me 55mins to go through 100 friends. It wasn't crashing for me, but the donut would just sit there after spinning a few minutes.

    Now I'm back to a comfortable 30-35mins for 100 Friends.

    There's many things contributing to lag. I suggested one of many.

    Another is, when the FP system is in effect, friend visits are slower as well.

    But if you like to believe EA is intentionally slowing the game just to make you mad, suit yourself.
    All my designs look unfinished because i can't place as many plants, streetlights, and fences as i would like. PLEASE REMOVE THE LIMIT, EA!

    I am on android and suffer with very slow visits at the moment. I am only doing 30 minutes twice a day at the minute and its taking me a couple of days to do a full cycle. During the halloween event I wil obviously aim to visit every neighbour every day but it could be a struggle if things dont improve a bit. We are victims of the games staying power..... most of my neighbours are L58 or very close. As stated above, the real pain now is the time taken in some towns to actually find stuff to tap..... this is the legacy of the IRS building but I wouldnt want to lose it! I am as guilty as anyone but I do try to leave as many tappables as possible.

    I like to tap early morning, which then leaves me free if I have to work, but at the moment my times keep getting later and all over the place, as it seems to be taking longer and longer which means I miss the odd day trying to get back to normal.

    Plus there's often nothing to tap, or you have to spend extra time looking for something to tap. I hope it sorts itself out before Halloween.

    I managed three whole Friend visits before crashing yesterday. That's a record high. I don't try again in the same day, the frustration level is too high. I just hope I can do more during the Halloween event.

    Apologies, but I think my Neighbors understand.

    So it's not me, it's you? Whew!

    It's an industry conspiracy, they deliberately slow our pc's and devices down and force up to upgrade to newer products :?

    I just updated to IOS9 and now the game is incredibly laggy. IOS8 I could swipe and scroll through my SF easily, now it's herky-jerky. My neighbor visits were crashing in IOS8, and they still do in IOS9. The load time does seem longer with IOS9. I think there must be a correlation between a SF size and the load time. Neighbors with really crammed SF's seem to take longer to load.

    It's almost unbearable to play with IOS9. Can't stand the laggy performance. EA needs to fix it.
