Well I do entirely agree with you that I would MUCH MUCH rather see them fixing the current issues rather then just "updating" the game. I wouldn't go as far as to say that the clouds are unfair...because EVERYONE has to deal with the weather conditions. But it does take messing around with trinkets and what not to finally get a good run. Though even when I use the best combination of trinkets I still sometimes get horrible runs because of the weather conditions, but that is to be expected. I just keep playing till I get a certain weather condition that I like, and then I restart the race every time I'm about to finish it IF I don't have the record that I want. That way I can have "good" weather and just keep playing it over and over again till I get a relatively good time.
Also if you didn't already know, every time you FINISH a race a new weather pattern will be in the next race (or if your REALLY unlucky you could get the same one, rarely though). But you actually have to FINISH it, you can't just start it and then pause and exit, that doesn't work. That way just keep playing races till you finally feel you got the right weather conditions and then just restart like I said above. This way you get to keep that weather condition every time you race. But make sure that you do NOT land on the landing zone or land at all, because once you do that you are NOT able to pause the game and restart the race.
As for the lag your having...I don't know what to say. I use a Ipod 4th gen, with a 5.1 IOS and I have no lag AT ALL. What usually happens to me though is that if I have another app running, after I finish a race, the sky gnomes app will shut down. Though it is easily fixable by just closing out of all your apps before starting the sky gnomes app.
