why cant we get the new Halloween update on our Kindle Fires? It has been out on apple and android for at least a week and Halloween is wed. It would be great to catch ghosts instead of the little screen on the ipod. thanks. i love the game otherwise.
I am unable to play the Christmas update either. The Halloween update took a long time to download and didn't work either it may be a lack of real instructions for installing the updates. The update began working Wed. It may be a case of hype before actual play.
I read somewhere that you can go into your application settings and choose "force stop", then when you open it again it should load normally. This is what I've been doing and it has worked for me so far. Now if I could just get EA's Need For Speed advert to close, I''ll be all set. *sigh*
The update isn't ready yet for the Kindle Fire. I've emailed both EA and Amazon about this and it turns out it's Amazon's fault. They say they need to test it thoroughly to ensure it will work as it is supposed to, and also to make sure that the new updates don't compromise security. Why it takes MONTHS longer than ANYONE else, I have no idea.
It seems to be a pattern with Amazon. I decided to just put the game on my phone and retire my slow kindle and it's ball-and-chain Amazon Marketplace. Good riddance!
Most of the games are set by default to automatically update. You can, however check manually if there are any updates by clicking on the Apps at the top of the screen, then Store. When you get to the store, click the menu button on the bottom of your kindle and it will bring up the sub-menu. The far left button says App Updates, or something similar, click on it and it will take you to the updates menu. It will say whether or not you have an update there.
I suggest that you go to settings, then go to device, then where it says "allow other application" press "on". Then go and Google 1mobile market. Download that appstore. It is the best! It has every app that you can think of, and its safe. No viruses or anything. It's legit too. And best of all, it has the free play update! Almost everything is free, and if it's not free it's $.99 or less. Here is the link so you can download it: http://1mobilemarket.en.softonic.com/android
I have both the Kindle Fire HD and the IPad and I have had the new update on my IPad for awhile but I'm wondering when I can get it for the Kindle Fire. I find the kindle fire stupid because it only seems to work for reading. I'm tempted to buy a Nook but I'm afraid of what I might find out. I wasted money on a Kindle.
thank you, B.Coy! i kept thinking the app would surely auto-update, but after a couple of ads came across saying "now available!" and i wasn't seeing any of the updates within my game, i came here to search. your directions were spot-on for 2nd gen Kindle.
I have lost inventory items , progress on games ( was on level 15 til update then took me back to 9!) and simoleons and lifestyle points Im am abt fed up with game I had previously installed and played also and when it updated, It locked me out completely saying the update required more updates and wouldn't update any further after days! I then wound up having to uninstall and reinstall starting over! ( and I had completely built my town and had all homes sims etc.!) So when I reinstalled I actually bought 2 pkgs of simeleons and lifestyle points to get started at 14.99 each and then the updates pretty much ate that all up!
Recently my SIM game either won't load or when it does its reset, sims aren't at Work or doing any other task. I can take up to ten tries before it loads and many times it will boot me out when I change from house to house. Any ideas what's going on?
