Now that Tapped Out has launched globally, Android players are looking around and wondering if they, too, will be able to join in the Valentine’s event fun. I know that because, “simpsons tapped out Android Valentines” is one of the most popular searches hitting this blog today.

I’m sorry to say that the answer to this question is “no”. And there are two very good reasons for this:

1. The Valentine’s event ends on February 28, which means that there’s not really enough time to make the most of it.

2. More importantly, because Origin isn’t available for the game on Android devices yet, Android players can’t add friends or take part in the social element of the game. Without being able to give Valentines to your friends, or collect hearts from friends’ Springfields, it would be very difficult to make any kind of progress in the Valentine’s Day version of the game.

Hopefully, Origin will arrive soon for Android players and, by the time the next event rolls around, the game will be in sync across platforms.
