The Sims Social Mobile App Update

The Sims Social has now been live over Facebook with 5 Million Active Users over the first week. All playing via PC's. But we remember been promised a mobile application from EA at E3 when The Sims Social was initially announced.


Well at Gamescon 2011, Chairman Reynolds said: "Eventually we're going to have a companion app that will give users a better fit for playing the game of java-supported platforms." Reynolds added: "It doesn't buck any of the trends of the free-to-play Facebook model at all. It's actually very familiar to Facebook gamers, but it brings the authenticity and the power of the Sims brand to the platform." 

We know previously the developers stated iPhone would be a compatible platform for the java based The Sims Social and now a mention of Android. Which means basically if you have a modern smart phone, you should be free to play The Sims Social online where ever you are, on the move!

  8. My concern is how would it know like where u saved? Will there be a sync feature to where if ur on the cpu and have to go somewhere it will sync to ur phone so u can pick up where u left off! Also how will it reconize u are already playing sim social on facebook? If this app makes u start over i will not be happy! I'm sure you connect the app to ur facebook account then allow access like they do for all apps! my house value is like 70K so starting over is not an option!

  14. The app is called The Sims Freeplay(i want it to be called Sims Social and has as many things to do, like you have in Sims Social on facebook, but unfotunatly they wanted to have the name "The Sims Freeplay for it, so.. Yeah.. :P )

  15. Sims Freeplay is not the Sim Social app that was mentioned above. Freeplay is a completely different app from EA Games, where as Sims Social is by Playfish. This app is just rumoured to be coming out. They have yet to announce a release date or any other mention of the progress of the app.
