Question for The Sims FreePlay

I'm having difficulty downloading the latest update within the app. Every time I open the app, it says that I need to download new content. So I press download and everything is fine until it gets to 23% (90 MB of 377 MB). At this point, it stops downloading but the kb/s continues to increase and decrease. After some time like this, a screen pops up that says "Progress has been saved. Reconnect then relaunch app to continue download. (-11)" However, my connection is perfectly fine. I've tried creating more space on my phone, uninstalling and reinstalling, restarting my phone, trying different connections..everything. HELP!!! I miss my sims!!

I had the same problem, I accidently solved it. Go to the app store, and update your app, on the right side you can 'download' don't use that one, but the left one. (something simular like 'update'or 'renew' I have the Dutch word, which is 'bijwerken'.) I hope this helps, I was getting bored with the game, but the new update is really nice!

It gives me no option to update the app itself. I have to uninstall it and reinstall it, but not even that has worked for me. I'm trying to get the game I saved to the cloud via my phone onto my iPad.

There should be a new update. I don't know about you but there's a new update that kind of adds a bit of Sims 4 to the whole game ;) Try it

I get to 79% with 250MB downloaded out of 250MB yet the kb/s decreases to 0 and the download just completely freezes. I've uninstalled the app and reinstalled it, reset my device (iPad 4 with iOS 9.1) and it STILL doesn't finish off downloading the content. Someone give me some proper advice here.
