    Didn't fix my lag either. the area with people on visible tasks (squidport) is a little faster but still essentially unplayable. The rest of town is only playable because no one is on task

    It reduced the lag considerably for me, but it's not smooth like it used to be.

    My town runs much better on both devices. (IPad and Nexus/android).

    My second town does well, with one bizarre exception. When I put OFlanagan on his do-an-Irish-jig task, the whole town went back into slooooow motion. I stored the pub and all went back to normal.

    Someone mentioned storing the pub the other day and I must confess ... I chortled. Guffawed, even. But it really made a difference! Weird!!!

    Still cannot get into my town. Does not get past the log in page....to add insult to injury I get these little messages that say "you haven't visited your Springfield in awhile".... I am like yeah no * Sherlock!!
    It is bit of a tease when you get these little updates and then you try and then nothing.....oh well will keep waiting and trying but I am seriously getting withdrawal symptoms...my tapping finger is starting to freeze up....must find other things to tap!!!

    My town is running better but there is still a small lag. I most people on indoor tasks to help it run better.

    Storing the pub actually helped a little, but it's still running very slow, and now crashing every time I try to visit a neighbor, unless I use my kindle. I mean, I can use the kindle, but it's hardly my favorite device.

    I still have bad lag, and there's some neighbors that keep causing my game to crash when I try to visit them. I'm using an iPhone 5 with the latest software.

    I still have lag as well but not sure about visiting friends as I haven't done that since the update yet.

    Seven neighbor towns crashed during my rounds earlier today. Every single one of the seven had a last time logged in as what would now be 2 days or more.

    If a neighbor crashes your game when you visit it means they can't access their town. You can visit their KL if you want though, for some reason.

    Did NOT fix my lag. I have not visited neighbors since the update because I just plain do NOT HAVE THE TIME to wait for the lag

    I actually HATE playing now..... After the Easter debacle, where I would get 250 pink eggs for 500 gold ones... Or 300 gold eggs for 500 gold eggs. Come on ! That never should have been an option

    The game writers must be idiots to anger so many of their players like this.

    Same here, no fix for the lag I'm on ipad retina, it's making the game unplayable. sorry to all my neighbours, I know I normally visit everyday. My game is crashing regularly, never experienced that before. It's taking 5 times as long to visit you, so I'm not being a very good neighbour. Please don't delete me, everyone of us played the Easter slog, and we all looked after each other. Now this. EA need to fix this, looking at this thread the problem is across a range of platforms and devices.

    I can verify. iPad retina. Even powered down and still slow after restarting.

    I've hidden all my embellishment characters and still laaaaaagggggy. I miss playing this game like it was.

    SEE?!! SEE??!! This is what we get for griping about the bunnies and spinning wheel chances of winning from a box.

    We're sorry EA ... Bring it back. Bring my fun, responsive game back! <sobbing>

    The lag seems fixed for me and I'm playing on an iPad retina. Haven't tried visiting neighbours yet as there is another ten mins to go before I can. However yesterday I solved the crash problem by visiting their Krustyland.

    The update helped a little with the lag on my galaxy s4. But I just now noticed Homer's 1 hour "error" task with CBG. I'm able to visit more of my friends now.

    EDIT: I put all characters on hidden tasks and the walking decorations in my inventory.
