    I've decided to stop playing for awhile so I won't be surprised if my friends list starts shrinking, I've lost motivation to play after experiencing frequent crashes during the Easter event and now crashes plus choppy game play as well, Enough is enough. I'll try back in a few weeks, Uninstalled for now.

    I don't blame you! But I have at least been fighting through the lag enough to clear the handshakes in my town for the Friends of mine that can still play the game.. I have finally got a good list of friends that I can tell actually play the game daily and I don't want to be losing a bunch of friends because of this lagging stuff.. So hopefully my "Friends" stick with me even though I haven't been able to visit their towns.. I will make sure my "Friends" will have something to tap on when visiting MY town tho..

    If I tap on the "Egg Generator" in my town, the box pops up and yes there it says "*Error" right about the "Ready in (Whatever amount of time)" bar BUT I have still been getting the Money from my "Egg Generator" every 12 hours as it says..

    I don't think it's device specific. Today's update made the lag somewhat reduced, but areas with more than one character on task on the screen are still essentially unplayable. No matter which device I tried.

    The lag actually seems to of gotten worse after they fixed the FP, Come on EA get it together.....

    It seems the lagging issue is worse for players with higher resolution devices. My older generation ipad isn't having as many problems as my friends who have iPad Air or retina display models.

    Although I have noticed that my screen lags severely in some towns with either huge house farms or the helicopter. It's almost as if the content is too much for the device.

    The game is now so laggy it's practically unplayable. It make it incredibly time consuming and frankly it's not fun to spend that much time trying to do basic things. Let alone visiting other towns. The game itself closes down often, if I'm opening my own town or trying to visit other Springfields. It's slow to scroll across the screen, it sometimes doesn't move at all.

    I don't know what you did it to it but it's broken.

    Edited to add - It does not seem to matter what device I use, iPad, Nexus, iPhone.

    This continued lag and freezing has not only made the game unplayable, but I have inadvertently clicked on using donuts to speed up a task. I've lost 4 donuts before I realized what was happening. Come on EA! Fix this already!

    I play on my Kindle Fire and htc one and the game is painfully slow on both. It started right after the Easter event was removed. I don't know what the frink issue is. I haven't had any issues getting the points in my or neighbor town.

    I've been trying to see if it's when all my people are wandering around in town or I have a bunch of stuff to clear. Maybe from trying to scroll around too fast. Nothing seems to make the issue any worse or better. It's slow as molasses, speeds up for a second so I'm all of a sudden across town, then show again.

    I think the focus for the moment should be on fixing this issue, not developing more events. Just my nickel's opinion.

    Keep characters off task and the game will run much better. I find the lag worst when I visit towns where everyone was doing something outside

    After Easter the game is choppy on my S3 and via Bluestacks emulator on PC, also saw it running poorly on a friends Note 2 last night, the only device I've seen it run decent on is my nephews Samsung Admire 2, perhaps because it has a lower resolution screen, but this problem is obviously pretty widespread not sure why EA hasn't addressed it yet.

    My town is still lagging like crazy too. The worst is trying to visit my friends towns because it takes a ridiculously long time and will just start to randomly crash. This has been going on for too long...I really hope they fix it soon. I just feel bad for my friends since I can barely clear out my town without having an issue.

    FIX THE LAG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I guess I'm one of the lucky ones...mine doesn't crash.

    On my game, the lag got better with the last update (Milhouse getting fit). But it still is there, and annoying.

    Hey everyone! Things seem to look promising.. I do still notice a lag but there has definitely been a 75% improvement.. I am able to navigate through my town somewhat easily now AND I was able to get through all of my Friends' towns this morning without much issue! So things look like they're on the UP!! I need to find a "walk-through" for this latest "Fit Milhouse" quest.. After my last task with Milhouse finished, I was reading the dialogue, and I saw Lugash popped up and said something I did not see because the lag kinda screwed me there!! LOL!
