Data Usage Surging after Recent Update

Post by littleb on Tue Jan 05, 2016 4:47 am

I'm playing Airport City on Android Lollipop. After the last 2 app updates, I have noticed that the game use a lot more data than before, increasing from using ~700 MB per month to ~4 GB per month.

Have anyone notice the increase in data usage in your device?
I am thinking to upgrade to Android Marshmallow -- has anyone played Airport City on Marshmallow and how's the data usage?

Cheers,
littleb

My tablet is wifi only so I don't track data usage but I noticed with the new, improved graphics my backup went from 2 meg to over 12 mg. That just ridiculous.

Could that be related to the issue you're having?

This could be the problem -- the size of game data has increased dramatically. So, whenever we open the game, GI likely will upload/download the game data to their server. Whenever we visit neighbours, again we download game data.

Assume playing 3-4 times a day, visiting 6 neighbours per day:
Data usage = (4 + 6) * 12 MB * 30 = 3.6 GB roughly!

Better switch to WIFI when playing ... !

I'm seeing something similar - just about every time I switch from AC to another app and back, AC has to restart. I'm on a Galaxy S5 if that means anything.
