Default Angry Birds Jumpy

I love my new Nexus 7. I was playing the original Angry Birds game, and while playing it seemed "jumpy", or "choppy". Does anyone know why?

That is weird. What version of Android do you have? 4.1 or 4.1.1? When I tried Angry Birds on the 4.1 version, the sound suddenly stopped working. But then when I updated to 4.1.1, it worked just great, no issues at all.

Hope this helps

I don't have that app, but I have noticed that just about any app can have strange pauses if you leave the GPS or a poorly behaved app running in the background.

Are you running the free version or the ad free version?

As an example:
I have Angry Birds Rio ad free and it runs great on my OG Droid all the way through my GNex (haven't tried on the N7 yet).
I have Angry Birds (free) and it is choppy on all devices when serving ads.

My educated guess is ads are the issue.

Thanks, not rooted, I guess I'll just deal with choppy awkward pauses

You could also toggle airplane mode while playing. I think that stops the ads.

Good idea, I hadn't thought of that.
