App Store Update: New Year 2019

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So an app store update hit our stores a little while ago (if you don’t see it try searching for Tapped Out in your App Store).  At the moment this update just removes the snow from Springfield and returns our games back to pre-Christmas update.  (holy smokes, it’s so green!)

There is a Mini Event Tied to this update.  However that mini event will NOT START UNTIL TOMORROW, WEDNESDAY JAN 9th, AT 10AM ET (1500 GMT).  So PLEASE don’t ask me where it is.  It will not start until tomorrow at 10am ET (1500GMT). 

So I can tell you this update will bring two requested characters to Springfield (one old and one young…), a bunch of buildings (including one, that will cost a lot of donuts, that will solve some land token problems), and a few decorations.  Also, with this update, you’ll see a TON of returning Stonecutters stuff.  So if you’ve been in the market for it, it’s back just for you!

And for those of you curious about the new characters…turn to your character collections to find them.  Still can’t find them, here they are:

An that’s it my friends, nothing to do but sit back and wait until tomorrow morning, 10am ET (1500 GMT) for the new content to hit!  Until then…enjoy your night!

Thoughts on the new content?  Excited for something to hit Springfield?  Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!


Dear EA: In 2019 I Would Really Like TSTO to Have…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s no secret we’re in a little bit of a lull in TSTO right now. The Christmas Event has ended and nothing new hit our games to replace it.  The break many of you have been asking for has arrived!  Enjoy it, because it’s likely ending pretty soon.

Contrary to what some of you may think, no this isn’t the end of TSTO.  It’s just a little lull.  They happen sometimes.  Just because the game has a little break doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world as our favorite yellow family knows it.  Sometimes a break is just a break.  And for those of you who like breaks and want more of them, this freak out is why EA doesn’t do breaks often. 

So, while we’re waiting for something new to hit our pocket-sized towns (my guess is we’ll see something Wednesday) I thought now would be a great time to talk about what we’d like to see in TSTO during 2019.  A little Dear EA letter…

So in the comments below share what features, characters, events, buildings, decorations, etc. you’d like to see hit our pocket-sized towns during 2019 events.  What are you missing?  What would you love to have?

Here’s mine:

Dear EA,
In 2019 I Would Really Like (actually I would REALLY LOVE) TSTO to have a feature in Town Hall that makes finding characters easier.  Whether it’s a search box, where you can type in the characters name to find them, or just the ability to search by letter, like hit the S and all of the characters that start with S appear.  This would make finding characters much easier than it currently is.  With so many characters in Springfield,it can take some time to find that one character you’re looking for in the Town Hall List.  A better search feature would be awesome! 

So now it’s your turn, share your “Dear EA” letter in the comments below!  I can’t wait to see your ideas for 2019!
