No, you don’t – which makes life easier if you have a lot of friends because It greatly reduces the time it takes to collect money, XP and hearts.

You only need to tap once on each building you want to collect from. This makes the dollars and XP fly out (and the hearts, too, during the Valentine’s event). You don’t need to tap on these to collect. The game automatically scoops them up them for you after a few seconds.

This works in your town as well as in your friends’ towns. And in a friend’s town, you can even leave before everything is scooped up, and it’ll be automatically added to your total.
