Hello!

Take a look at the following topic, where it says What do I do if I experience app crashes or lag?. I am sure it will answer your question.

Yo what’s up

@Thomas_G I just read the page and I’m on Andriod not iOS

From my experience with IF, Android has crash issues and a few bugs too. I had to reset my device and do a full software repair, and now it is running very smoothly on a 2017 device. Although in busy airports I turn a couple of the graphics down to low, I still have the highest airplane count turned on.

Try closing all apps and restarting your phone before the flight, then open IF only after the restart. Ensure you disable apps running in the background and keep your storage clear.

Thanks for the tip, I’ve a 2014 Andriod but it rarely crashes.

Ok, so the app doesn’t crash on your phone, and you want advice to prevent any crashes at all?

Tips:

When in cruise turns all graphics to low, turn brightness down very low, hide dots and names and airplane count to none.

Tried a long haul on my iPad mini 2 with these settings and it survived barely, even if everything was pixelated cuz of its bad graphics

Would you be able to specify exactly which device and version of Android you are currently using? Might be able to assist you better with that information…

Also are you getting a crash message “infinite flight has stopped” or does it just close with no message?

@EyesSkyward the app crashed just now before I opened this topic that’s why I’m asking about this. The app rarely crashes on my phone.

@Chris_S it just closed with no message

That usually means that your resources were used up or you hit an OS limit and the OS killed the app.

Follow the steps in the linked post as it should also help you out. Lowering graphics, rebooting before flight, etc.

@Chris_S I’m just wondering, if it shows a message “Infinite Flight isn’t responding” what does it mean?

Usually its due to the amount of ram in the phone, the age of the processor in the phone. Hope this helps!

I don’t know if anyone said this but on long flights over the ocean turn down your graphics a lot. Like lowest of lows. Clear Cache often. Also Replay mode, clear some of those unnecessary videos it might help I have no clue about it but it might help with space. Also make sure your device is updated to the newest update for your operating system.

Never heard this one: disable notifications. It helps with your phone having to hold all of them and also it’s less of a distraction.

In the end you want your device to not have to dela with any pressure or anything like that.

Oh and background apps running isn’t a good idea.

Some thing might’ve been said or I might be wrong on some things just do what’s relevant and can help your device.
