Trouble managing friends via origin

First, what devices do you use? IOS or android, or are we talking pc?

    Does anyone else have problem with the origin interface on Tapped Out? I had problems since almost the beginning when I started playing (about three weeks ago now). I don't think the problem is on my end because it's the same on two different devices and reinstalling doesn't change a thing.

    When I go to the 'my friends' tab with the sub-categories 'with tapped out', 'without tapped out' and 'pending' the first two categories are open and the friends names are visible, the list of pending friends is closed. When I tap on the little arrow to open it up, it immediately closes on it's own again. Likewise when I try to fold up the two already open lists they open again on their own immediately.

    When I click on a friend's name it shows the screen with the orange 'profile' button for maybe half a second before reverting back to the default name and last login. This makes managing friends completely impossible.

    Anyone have the same problem? Is there a solution or at least a reason for this?

    Also, no idea if this is related or not, but sometimes I have a town called 'return home' amongst my friend's towns, it looks like all the other towns down to the 3 actions but when I click it it does exactly what the name implies.

    Yea the 'Pending' part of the list never expands for me on iOS either. To get to the friends profile I double tap quickly on the left side where the profile button appears and it will take you there. I and many others get the 'Return Home' from time to time...no biggie.

    To avoid some of this you might want to use the Orgin software to manage your friends. Get it at http://www.origin.com/download

    I think he's on IOS. Friends without tapped out are android friends. You can never click on the pending one and get it to open. Simpsoms8795 is correct. You need a pc. However, if you keep clicking on the friend, eventually it will pop open end you can then delete them. The return home icon is the one to your Springfield. It appears from to time. (Although I haven't gotten it. It will take you to your Springfield.

    Thanks all, you are correct, I'm on IOS with both my devices.

    @ simpsons7795: thanks for the tip, if I click fast enough it works to hit the profile button.

    @indys2nd for some reason it never occured to me that friends 'without tapped out' were android users. Thanks for cluing me in :lol:

    I've gotten the Return Home thing just once. I was wondering what causes it also.

    Ive had this on my iphone also. I was told to download origin on my computer and I am having the same issue on it. I get origin to open but it never loads my friends list.
