Android User Neglection

As an Android user who has no interest in the newer IPhones I am very dissapointed with how Kabam handled this situation today. Us android users have to suffer worse graphics and slower loading times so to top that with what happened today is very shameful. We have to wait a month to get our 5 star or 4 star shards along with our signature stones and what comes out of whatever element crystals we choose while the Iphone users with a stronger wallet get their benefits and enjoyment earlier. At this point it feels like Kabam cares little about us and favors the big money company Apple. Anyone else sympathize or even empathize?

Nothing like today (touch wood) which I do feel sorry for Android users of which about 50% of my alliance is, but it’s not all rainbows and unicorns on iOS as it appears.
We like to blame Kabam for lots of things but have we also stopped to think that some of the issues are to do with the service provider themselves and their OS (apple android) etc.
I know when the overheating issues occurred my experience was completely fine until I did the iOS update and then started having issues.
While it’s easy to blame Kabam there are times when it isn’t solely their fault.
In addition, the way they worded their announcement can mislead people. When they say "locking current trials to ios only" does it mean only today's trial of alchemist? or the entire trials from day 1-7 starting now till feb 6? its unclear.
No. IOS users can run the quest. I did all difficulties. Need to get access to an android device now so I can run it again later lol. Joking as I'm too lazy to actually do that but others will.
Lol do u even know how app updates work before u come here and start pointing fingers...it's not kabam's fault that Google didn't push the update in time..yes the version limitation for the trial of the Alchemist is wrong coding but not the fact that the update wasn't pushed in time by google
Let's forget a second about Apple or Google : When was the last update (no matter on which OS) with no problem? I personnally can't remember.
I did need some time to adjust to the faster gameplay and now I do have problems with playing on Android. It's not just the loading times but the whole game runs faster on iOS
Also, if I use an Apple device and an Android device, but I'd prefer not to run the trials on the Apple device (and I haven't), how does that work? Do I still get the trials later on Android?
Kabam had no ide when the update was finally going to drop for Android users. It could have been early enough for people to download and get in thr Trials, but why take the chance? Even missing a couple hours can mess it up for some people who are in different time zones. Better that they postpone it for all Android users than cause some of the people to possibly miss it.
@Savage_ it's incredible how uninformed you are. They only locked YESTERDAY'S 7th day trial. The new one after the reset will be available to everyone. We will get our make up trial on Feb 6th. Please do some actual reading before posting. You are just embarrassing yourself.
They said they were locking Apple Users out to prevent double dips. Could be for the redo on February.
actually it is a solution.
due to the fact the the majority of iOS users would have already had it done it would have been no different if they had of locked it for everyone who hadnt done it.
as far as running it in a month pretty much makes sense to me.
for one simple reason.
game update cycle.
for them to run it side by side with the normal one tommorrow probably couldnt be done without yet another update. it would most likely require coding client side to allow for day 7 and day 1 to appear at the same time. and could potentially cause issues with entries.
so it will have been pushed to the end as this could be a simple server side push.
