How do people cope playing on iPhones?!

Prev134
I only play on my iPhone 4S and its not bad I have all the land and have resigned completely twice working on full redesign number 3 lol if you only play on the phone you get use to it but to go to an iPad then come back would be a pain.

    For the first 8 months of play, it was all I knew until I pretty much nabbed my girlfriend's iPad.... If she didn't own one and rarely used it, I would have bought one with the swinging vote being to play Tapped Out on it. I only use iPhone for work/ travel. iPhones can be discreet if you're checking on those 1-4hr tasks, but for visual appeal, it's the iPad. My town went undeveloped and outdated for months until I got the iPad... I could never redesign my town on the iPhone, it's so frustrating trying to select one tile....

    I used to play on my iPhone until I got myself a iPad 3 last September. I use my iPad all the time & only resort to using my phone if I'm at work and need to get my TSTO fix lol

    But I'm sure the people who use iPhones have to resort to it because they don't have a tablet. So there's really no choice for them.

    I think that's my problem - been spoilt with the iPad!
    I applaud you for fully redesigning on your iPhone - I've tried today and failed, you must have the patience of a saint and amazing vision! I think I'd be left with a permanent squint if I'd tried anymore!

    It's selecting the decorations to go into storage that was doing my nut in the most!
    I too use my phone to collect and have a quick check, but a redesign is near impossible for me at least.
    If the boyfriend 'borrows' my iPad again I shall be packing his bags! :lol:

    Well there's also bluestacks you can download it lets you get android apps on your computer so can play tapped out on the computer with bigger screen but it can be pretty laggy

    They manage because they started on it and don't know the joys of having a larger screen, lol.

    I made a Whacking Day town, it's on my iPhone. OH BOY! That was....err....a nightmare. So tiny. I even think when I play my sons' abandoned town on his iPad mini that it's a bit of a chore.

    I love the big giant screen of my iPad for these types of games.

    I play on my HTC One X at work. It's in a dock on my desk so I can quite sneakily do a bit of tapping when my one hour tasks are up.

    At home, I use my tablet and it's much. much better and easier to design and move things around on the big screen.

    The iPhone5 defo runs smoother than my iPad that's for sure, although I do prefer to use the iPad moving items around, but tbh it no real difference between the too! The Phone maybe smaller screen but it shows exactly the same amount of stuff as the iPad :) just means you got to zoom in a bit more with the phones.

    I honestly don't mind which device I play on :)

    I play on my iPhone all the time, pretty sure that with an iPad things would be alot easier, but what can I say, got very used to playing on my iPhone.

    I've only ever known the game on an Iphone 4S. Does anyone know if the app is available on the Kindle Fire? I have my doubts.

    I'm kind of inclined to buy an Ipad...ugh!

    It's all I've known. Sure, I could play on my larger computer screen, but it doesn't make much difference. I can't select things any easier. It seems most people are just enthralled by the higher resolution images.

    I can't stand play on my iPod touch. I either miss tap or scroll when I don't want to ughh annoyance or what lol. I was lucky e ought to be able to afford this ipad so it's much easier . Dare I say it!.....yes I will. I don't love this game that much that I would download it for my computer.
