That’s been a standard reaction since the North American release of The Simpsons Tapped Out on Google Play – and it’s one addressed by Jeremy Hill at Technology Tell. Here’s what he says:

“In the iOS version of The Simpsons: Tapped Out, Origin is used to visit the Springfield’s of other players, and it also serves as a cloud storage system… Unfortunately, no such system exists for Android.

“EA wrote the following in the description for The Simpsons: Tapped Out:

– Android does not currently enable players to visit their friends’ Springfields.
– Game saves are not supported across multiple devices (each device will have its own save file).

“Origin support is one of the reasons why a constant internet connection is required to play The Simpsons: Tapped Out. Without Origin, an always-on internet requirement is just annoying. What’s more annoying is how this is impacting iOS gamers who also have Android devices. The reviews section of Google Play has several players complaining about how they can’t access the same Springfield they created on iOS several months ago. This basically means they have to start over if they want to play on Android.”

There’s been no word from EA on when Origin will be available on The Android version of the game.
