If edits aren't processed right away by the server, they may be queued up and a couple days processed all at once, which would give you more than expected number of candies for only a day's editing. Usually, they are pretty reliable in daily processing. I can do edits at work during lunch and get 1-2 candies as soon as I leave for home 4 hours later.
I'm aware that changes are different than the counter on the editor, and I thought I was pretty good at estimating changes by counting multiple segments when mass editing. But sometimes when I expect 3-4 candies I get only one during a trip and the rest will pop up on a later drive that same day or the next day. Other times they all come at once. The mechanism for when
candies are given out is mysterious, regardless of how many are due.
Right now I could be backed up a little bit on candies; since the last Android release I've had an issue where my icon will face a random direction at an intersection while I'm stopped and often that's when they decide to give out a candy. It'll pop up on the wrong road!
Then when I miss it I won't get any more for the rest of the drive. It's such a common occurrence that I'm beginning to suspect the client secretly hates giving me candy.
