FarmVille iPhone App update boosts speed and improves performance

The FarmVille iPhone application has received an update addressing some of the issues plaguing the older version.

Continue reading to see a list of the improvements.

The FarmVille iPhone app updates are as follows:

  • Optimizations to allow large farms to load better.
  • Fixes for users having issues loading their farm.
  • Performance improvements for older devices.
  • Support for multitasking (for iOS 4.0 users).
  • Better organized gift area.
  • Bug fixing.

Before the update, the FarmVille iPhone app was slow, choppy, and overall, provided a pretty terrible gaming experience, especially on older devices. As seen in our demo video, FarmVille ran at a snail's pace running on an iPod touch. Fortunately, Zynga is well aware of the performance issues being suffered by players on slower handheld devices. FarmVille players with larger, more extravagant farms had it the worst as the game struggled to load their massive amount of items and land.

We're definitely relieved to see most of these troubling issues were tackled in the FarmVIlle app update. Hopefully now it plays more smoothly than ever. In addition, we're pleased to see the support for multitasking, letting able players take breaks from the grueling farm life without closing the app.
