The Sims FreePlay iPhone/iPad Cheats and Tips

Last Updated:

The Sims FreePlay is a strategic life simulation game where you can create up to 16 different Sims, personalising each one of their features and modifying their appearance to your liking and then either put them in an already designed house to live or create one yourself. We have a large collection of The Sims FreePlay cheats and tips for iPhone that will help your progression in the game. In Sims FreePlay for iPhone you can also select tasks for your Sims, complete goals for Lifestyle Poins (LP), or send them to work to earn Simoleaons.

How to Get Money Fast in The Sims FreePlay

Money is literally to oil that greases the gears and allows you to get anything done in this game. Without a steady flow of Simoleans, you will be stuck pretty soon, fortunately for you we know a few good tricks to get money fast in The Sims FreePlay in 2020. Here are a few ideas:

1. The Japanese Real Estate Trick.

Suitable only if you are starting a new game, this trick involves purchasing the Japanese House as your first or second house in the game, and the selling all of the individual items in it, including the rooms, so literally you have nothing left, you will make so many Simoleans doing this. Delete the lot, then you can just do it over and over again, but it's only good if you are starting a new game.

2. Gardening

Grow some veg, have your Sims all gardening at the same time and with a plant you'll go back to as soon as it is ready. It's a bit of a grind, but if you need cash quick in the Sims Freeplay, this is not a bad way to get some cash quick.

3. Get a Job

Starting a career is a great way to start bringing in some more cash on a regular basis. At the start you won't be earning too much, but as your career progresses so will your salary. The amount you earn will depend on your chosen career path.

How to have a baby

First you wait until you are in the tenth level then you get the option to marry the two sims. Next you buy a bed for the baby. All you have to do is just click on the bed and your sims will try for a baby. Thanks this was written by DahliaJohnson

Getting married + having babies

So the last hint I posted, I was recieving questions about marriage and babies. I can finally say I have passed that stage

Whoop, Whoop!

To be able to have children and get married;

I'll explain how I done this;

*Note, do not move sims together without them getting married, you'll have a hard time getting the sims engaged/married, i'll explain about this in a bit*

Basically, get two sims and make their relationship status to the max basically, until you can't go further for now

*Oh I just receently realised that you can fast foward a task, anywho*

After reaching level 10 (Forgot why you need to be in level 10 anyways :S), anywho, carry on doing the tasks that are given to you, hmm..

Most lucrative vegetables for Simoleans

I did the math. I made a whole chart showing how much you make for planting each veggie, NET, per hour. Wish I could post it here but the format doesn't work.

Of course you pay less for seeds at the grocery store. And your Sims make significantly more money when inspired - try to make sure your Sims are inspired before starting their gardening, always.

Peppers and Carrots make you most money per hour, but are labor-intensive. But good when you need some quick cash. Peppers nets an inspired Sim $480 an hour.

Corn is the next most lucrative veggie, netting an inspired Sim $276 an hour. But still pretty labor-intensive. What about when you need a few hours?

Well then, Lettuce, Watermelons, Potatoes and Zucchini are all reasonable choices. The sh..

Easy thousands of simoleons

This cheat is to get a lot of money in a few steps

1) Go to a sim's house

2) In the store select the social button

3) "buy" for free any thing and put it in any free space in the house a lot of times until you full it

4) Go to settings (...), press the blue button, is like a key hole

5) Log out from facebook and game center

6) Go again to that sim's house

7) Open the store and choose the move and sell button

8) Sell all the things that you got for free and you will get a lot of money for each object you sell

**Like if it worked for you**

Fast money & XP!!

1st- Have your sim doing something. Planting, at a job, watching a movie,etc.

2nd- once you have that, press the home button once, then press it twice

3rd- find the red dash button and press it(it won't delete the app)

4th- go to settings and change the date(by years not the days) and time(by hours not minutes)

5th- go to sims app and press the home button

6th- go to date and time and change it to the present date and time.

7th- go back to the sims app and you should get $$ and XP.

8th- repeat!

It worked for me and hopefully works for you! I did these tasks on the iPod touch. I don't know if It works on iPad/iPhone

Get money by not demolishing your house...

When you've moved a sim to another house, do not demolish the house the sim used to live in. Instead sell the rooms by going to the build mode and pressing the 'Rooms' button, press the room you want to sell and, well, just sell it. Sell every room.

You'll still get 'rent' by doing that

Planting makes you very rich by going back to 2011 :D

If you already read this, and didnt understand or didnt work, I suggest you read this and try again... ;D

Well, I don't actually know if this works on iphone since I'm using an iPad 2.

Well first gather your sims in a house. Make them inspired, then let them plant (all of them) [i would recommend a higher payback, like beans] then close the app, double press the home button then press and hold the game icon, then when the red minus sign is out, press it. Go to your settings, remove the set automatically, then set the date to year 2011

E.g. May 5, 2012

Change it to May 5, 2011

Then go back to the game. Then press the home button twice and go to the settings now change the time

For example,/

5:00 Pm

Free simoleons- no time cheat needed!

This is a pretty easy cheat that doesn't involve changing the time on your phone! I've tried time cheats and while some have worked, they've messed up my party boat and I have to wait 1000 more hours before my next gift :/ so I discovered this one and it gets you a ton of money without a risk of messing up your game!

Here's what you do:

-go on the sims and make sure you are connected to Facebook via the party boat. It should show how many neighbors you have on the top bad of your game.

-go to any house. I've emptied several of my houses so they are nothing but empty rooms, as it makes this cheat much easier.

-go to the "social" section of the home store. It will allow you to buy items based on however many neighbors you have.

-buy items, as many as you want! They..

Finally figured out getting married and having babies!!! This wi

Ok guys I have finally figured all of this out! I have all my sims married and 2 babies that have grown into toddlers. If you do everything I tell you then you should not have any problems.

First off you do not need to have your sims living separate to get married it's perfectly fine if they already live together.

Second make sure your sims have the highest relationship possible(I think it's partner) and I know it completely sucks but you have to wait until you receive the task to make your sims get married. Until you receive the task you WILL NOT have the option to get married. So it's very important to complete your task because then the sooner the marriage task will come. Don't get discouraged it will eventually come(I believe I was on level 16 or 17 before it finally came)..

Money!!! Works all time

Make sure your SET AUTOMATICALLY is on before you start

go to sims

2 hit home button

3 go to settings

4 turn automatically is OFF

5change date year to 2000

6 hit home button

7 double tap home button and hold you sim free play app until a little red minus pops up then hit the red minus (won't delete the app from hard drive)

8 then go back on to sims but this time make all sims do something ex dace to music ( have Simone do something with the baby if you have one)

8 hit home button

9 go back to settings

10 change date year back to your year (2013)

Easy money tip!!

First, you need to have the children's store. (I'm not sure of the exact name but it's a kids store.) and if you go to the store and go to the pre-teen section, you will see a karate dummy thing. Now if you try to buy this item in your sim's home it says it costs 18 SP (social points) However, when you go to buy it in the Children's Store it is free! So, buy a ton of them for free in the store and then go home and sell them each for $900!! ****(Anything that costs social points at home is free in the store, but this karate thing is the one that is worth the most)***

Add a new sim early

Hi everyone, I found out that when you have a sim out in a neighbors town, your sim count goes down by one, making it possible to create a new sim regardless of your sim level cap. I'm level 30 with 18 sims.

NOTE: you will notice you will have to wait extra levels to get your next sim created...not true, just put one of your sims at a neighbors town and then you'll still be able to create another sim. Hope this helps, having an extra sim will bring you a bit more money. Good luck.

Make your sims sick

If you shake your device fo 3-4 seconds your Sims will vomit. If the Sims only show nausea just give your device another 2-3 seconds shake and they will definitely be sick.

Grow Crops in Seconds

Go to your first Sim's house and call over all of the sims. You must have garden patches for all of them, if not, most of them. You can move other garden patches from other houses to that house. Make them grow a crop such as onions (10 hours and $800). Exit out of the Sims Freeplay and go to settings, general, date & time and change "set automatically" to OFF. Click "Set Date & Time" and change the year to 1970. Double click the home button and close Sims Freeplay (tap the X). Open Sims Freeplay. After it has loaded exit it again and close it. Go back to setting and change "Set Automatically" to ON this time.

Go back to your sims. They should be done growing their crops and might be sick.

How to get $ and inspire instantly

For this to work you need to follow each instruction:

1. Get all you sims to plant, bake, sleep (whatever gets you xp)

2. Double click the home button and hold down the sims game and press the little red minus button (it wont delete your game, I promse!)

3. Go to settings -> general --> date and time --> turn off 'set automatically' --> set date and time --> click on the year and change it a few years ahead

4. Go back to your game and let it load, you should have recieved 5 - 10,000 simoleans and your sims shouldbe fully inspired!

5. They will probably be glitchy (easily fixed) just go back to date and time, change back to 2012 and just like that they will be fine!

** this also works if your building something and it does not give you lp only $**

Ok so first, I have a rant. Do EA honestly think we have nothing else to do, but sit there all day and play their stupid game? I was level 65, and I got the teens update, only to discover, that it reset my game. I was soooo pissed. Come on EA, we know your better than this!

Cheat time! So while I was collecting my revenue (XP and simolieons off the map) I accidentaly tapped twice on the money. Surprisingly, it game me 2x the money! So the little 5 came up, then it came up again! If you tap your money/XP up to 3 time, you get more! Sometimes this dosent work, and you go into the sims house Smile

This is the last working cheat for the sims freeplay that is known of :( I seriously hope EA gets the..

Easy Money

This might have been mentioned quite often, but I thought i'd make some things clear.

*Most of the cheats up here don't work anymore due to the recent update, but I personally think the hints have come in great handy*

Anywho, I was in need of simcash stuffy, however I don't really use this, anyways *oh btw, the time shift thingy doesnt work on getting money, but really does help on making your sim inspired and it workrs every time*

Basically, it's pretty clear that no one actually plays this game at night, so basically, I got all my sims to plant garden patchs, with the most paying ones but with the latest amount of time needed, (I.e onions and beans are really good)so I get my rest and my sims are working their asses off, and when I check out the app later on ..


My bar is maxed out my sims are partners they were living together but I moved him out hoping I could marry them faster. I'm on level 15 and keep choosing "be romantic" but I don't get the propose or buy a ring option. I'm getting discouraged. I have a iPhone

Unlimited Money + XP Through Planting

This is a perfected version of the time glitch.

Step 1: Get two people to live together by making them partners. Do this by constantly making them "be romantic". Once they are partners you can have one of them ask to live with the other. (This is just so that the person who doesn't actually live there won't leave)

Step 2: Have two plants ready.

Step 3: Go into your IPhone/IPad settings. Go to General > Date & Time. Change it to not be automatic. Change it to the earliest date you can possibly bring it to.

Step 4: Have the two people that live with each other each start planting. Choose the plant that will get you the most money (Don't worry about time). A good one to start with is the bean.

Step 5: Click the button that wi..
