Please advise. and get

The problem resolved when I was able to update the app. The game picked up right where I had left off.

Guest answered: Added 10th Apr 2012, ID #497283
I have a solution only works on HTC desire though, when you have downloaded it do the updates and turn off the phone and back on again. After you have done that go in the setting and change animation to all animations shown you should then Be able to get on "The Sims FreePlay" if this works please tell me and it may work on Apple technology not saying it will though. :D

Help for those of you using sims freeplay on Ipad2: This kept happening to me and drove me nuts. I was depressed for two days because I couldn't launch the app and I have two toddlers who I know were dying it was haunting me! I tried everything, closing down the app, restarting ipad and nothing worked.
I noticed that whenver hubs took it to be updated at work this happened so I started to cloud. Anyhoo, what works is to make sure to update all your apps in the app store!!! Whenever something needs updating, or you add a new program, the sims app gets frozen for whatever reason. Instead of sitting around waiting for an update to sims app, just make sure all other apps on ipad get updated immediately. Hope this helps all of you!

I just got the new update, the update to get the weather machine thing. It was working for a while, and all of a sudden it just won't load. I have all my apps up to date, exited out of my open apps, restarted my iPad 3 times, and it won't work anymore.

The exact same things have been happening to me for four days by now. I tried closing and reopening the sims freeplay app 5 times, shutting down my ipad 3 times, I tried locking my ipad, I tried a new wifi network but absolutely nothing has worked. It keeps getting stuck on the logo sign while the music keeps playing on. Please help me. I'm stuck.
Guest answered: Added 12th Jun 2013, ID #592036
Me too :( the game keeps closing after the update and I have tried so many times yet it does not work. Really upset as I spent much time playing this game. Should not have updated.
Guest answered: Added 12th Jun 2013, ID #592037
Oh my god I am actually in live with the sims and have been with out for four days but I have found out a solution:
Turn your wifi off
Hold down the home button
Close the sims [it doesn't delete it don't worry]
Turn your ipad iPhone iPod off
Turn your ithing back on
Turn on wifi
Play xxx have fun simmers

I am glad someone can play. I tried your solution but had no luck. It would be nice if EA would get this resolved or simply say they are working on it. So aggravated.

All my houses are 3-storey with weather machine. I do not want to "restart" this game again after playing it for so long time. Anyone with the solution to run the game? I tried all the suggestions here, but my game is still cannot be loaded.
Guest answered: Added 29th Jun 2013, ID #594565
It happened on me too. What I did was I turned OFF the wifi on the ipad then tried opening sims freeplay a couple of times while wifi is off. After that I turned the wifi ON on the ipad and I was able to open the sims freeplay again.

Make sure all of your apps are fully updated and that your iCloud backup is enabled. That's what worked for me.
Guest answered: Added 9th Sep 2014, ID #639087
I had the same exact problem. The screen would just keep reloading. However it would show one of my sims for like 2 seconds each time, and I noticed they were in a neighbors town. I went to the Game Center and unfriended all of my sims neighbors. IT WORKED INSTANTLY. I opened up the sims and it loaded normally and was fine and back to normal! If anyone else's keeps reloading, try deleting your neighbors via the Game Center!!

Just downloaded the new update because I couldn't buy anything in the home store and now It loads then shuts down. Spent $200 on lifestyle points and simeons over the last 3 months and what for!!!
Guest answered: Added 13th Dec 2014, ID #649232
I play on an iphone, and I had the same problem. Here's what worked for me:

Put your phone on airplane mode. Load the will say that the game was unable to load, and it will ask if you want to retry. Take your phone off of airplane mode, and tap retry. It should load normally.
