If a CSS update can trigger re-downloading of a couple hundred magazines or GC talks I think that speaks volumes to needing the option to disable the update check on start up, or at least a pop up notification that says, "371 items have been updated, do you wish to download now?".
When the update check is triggered on startup, there is a high probability of being at a church building on their WiFi in the middle of a class, meeting, or lesson. None of which are ideal times to start downloading a ton of content.
Thank you Sam Bradshaw for reading and responding to this thread!

If CSS is being updated so frequently that it queues the update of all GL content on a weely basis, then maybe the CSS code needs to be more closely reviewed as it suggests/indicates that correctable flaws are being overlooked, and we users become unwitting victims.

I check in the morning, and again an hour before Sunday School started ... nothing. Fifteen minutes before Sunday School started, the updates start ... all 1900+ articles (two languages) and it takes 45 minutes (Galaxy S7 Edge). The GL update chews through approximately 40% of battery life and renders my phone nearly unusable, especially GL, and occasionally--since I usually put my phone back in my pocket while I wait out the update--I even get overheating alerts.

I've deleted GL and reinstalled it, deleted GL content and downloaded all of it afresh ... there has to be a better, more permanent solution than telling people about CSS updates.
