floydbloke: When you're on a slow as.....wifi connection in a hotel and Android decides it needs to update 72,000 apps.
I just disabled automatic app updates. As I got sick of it always updating right when I was wanting to use the phone. Both making the interface really laggy and using more battery due to the extra processor load. I now update apps manually as needed. Sure Facebook is now pestering me that it needs to be updated. But the "What's New" blurb simply says - improvements for reliability and speed. Yet older versions were definitely faster and more reliable. Also an update will never be able to improve the actual content on Facebook.
A simple update rule something along the lines of only run updates when phone is both connected to a charger and has Wifi would be better. And even better again would be: Charge phone to 100% first, then run app updates. When im asleep and the phone is plugged into the charger overnight, It has plenty of time to do updates. A Facebook update is never so important that it can't wait until 3am before updating.
Even Windows is happy to wait for me to finish my work first. And then apply updates at shutdown.
