The latest, the sixty-seven content update was released on November 12, 2014 on The Simpsons: Tapped Out. The first and the second were released in September 2012.

Note: The price of some buildings often change after a new content update and because of this, the price of a building listed on this page may not reflect the price of that building in-game.

Tutorial

Level 5-9

Level 10-14

Level 15-20

Level 21

The first content update was released on September 21, 2012, and came nearly a month after the game's re-launch on the App Store. The update was 40.3 MB.

Level 21 was introduced, a long-awaited level for players who had finished Level 20 months before. The Muntz House was unlocked with Level 21, and unlocked Nelson. Springfield Library was added as a Level 12 building, and unlocked Martin when built. Also two new premium items were added, the School Bus, unlocking Otto, and the Springfield Observatory. Several new decorations were added as well.

"Moonshine River"

The second content update was released on September 28, 2012. The Duff Racer was the only thing added to the game; it was added to celebrate the Season 24 premiere "Moonshine River" on September 30, 2012.

Halloween 2012 and Level 22

The third content update (version 3.0.0.) was available to download on October 3, 2012. This was a huge update, introducing new Halloween characters and buildings. Players were able to squish zombies after building the Springfield Cemetery, toilet-paper and egg friends' houses, and unlock new Halloween quests.

Level 22 came with the update and added Mrs. Krabappel and her apartment building, as well as several decorations.

The update was partly a tie-in with "Treehouse of Horror XXIII", which aired 4 days after the update was released. Once the player had completed a Mayan calendar in-game, the Mayan God was unlocked. The non-playable character asked the player a question - the player receiving Donut Tapped Out.png10 and the first new outfit for the game, Mayan Homer if the player chose the correct answer. Choosing the incorrect answer and then getting the correct answer would unlock Mayan Homer without the player receiving Donut Tapped Out.png10.

The Mystery Boxes were also changed to Wicked Treat Boxes and the price was decreased by Donut Tapped Out.png4, making the Wicked Treat Boxes the second least costing premium item at the time it was available.

The update was scheduled to end on Halloween 2012, but the features remained in the game for around another week.

Level 23

The fourth content update was released on November 5, 2012. The update included two new characters Kent Brockman and Bumblebee Man, two new buildings and several new decorations. The update was 52.7MB.

This update did not remove the Halloween features; the price of the Ray Gun was decreased by Donut Tapped Out.png50.

Thanksgiving 2012

The fifth content update was released officially on November 8, 2012. This update removed the Halloween features from the game and changed the Halloween rewards for characters and buildings to cash and XP.

Information about this update was revealed on a Facebook account for a Tapped Out fansite. Information on what was included in the game's raw files was posted, which included a new outfit for Homer - Ninja Homer, which was made available around five months later during the Whacking Day content update.

Penny-Wiseguys

The sixth content update was an in-app update released on November 13, 2012 which added Fat Tony as a character in the "Wise Guys" collection. Fat Tony's quests were part of an exclusive storyline leading up to the premiere of "Penny-Wiseguys" on November 18, 2012.

The Day the Earth Stood Cool

Reports of a seventh content update began on November 29, 2012 when a user of the Tapped Out forums reported that a Christmas-themed Tapped Out logo had appeared on the App Store on the Apple devices. Other users then denied the reports, but then another user posted an image featuring the Christmas logo.

The seventh content update was released on November 30, 2012, and it wasn't a Christmas-themed update - it was an update with a tie-in to "The Day the Earth Stood Cool". The update is 54.5MB. This update removed the ability to buy the Thanksgiving balloons.

Christmas 2012 and Level 24

On December 3, 2012, The Simpsons: Tapped Out's official Facebook page posted a message: "Let it snow! Springfield's in for some holiday magic with a big new update... coming soon!" - which implied that the update would be released sometime in the first week of December. It was announced on Tapped Out's Facebook page the following day that the holiday update would be released the next day (December 5, the same day when Tapped Out would no longer be able to be played on 1st and 2nd generation iPod touches and iPhones), and included in that post was an image of Santa Homer - a new outfit for Homer that was introduced in the update. With the update also came a new icon for the game, and a new opening menu, also known as a 'splash screen'. The update's limited time currency was Santa Coins.

The update brought Gil into the game - but as a non-playable character. The first time he appeared was when he gave the player the option to buy a premium building (which unlocked an outfit) and a premium decoration together for less than the overall price. The second time he offered the player 25% off donuts - that offer brought a bug to the game which caused several players to be locked out of their games.

Players could buy a Santa's Sack for Donut Tapped Out.png5, similar to the Mystery Box, and upon purchase the player would receive between 10-20 Santa Coins. Santa's Sacks were given to the player free in the Daily Play Combo instead of the Mystery Box.

The bug the second of Gil's offers brought presumably caused the update's features to be available until January 10, 2013 rather than January 3, 2013 it was previously supposed to be available to.

Level 25

The ninth content update was released on January 11, 2013 after the Christmas features (apart from the snow) were removed in-game. When Tapped Out was released on Android, this update came with it (apart from the US release).

Valentine 2013

The tenth content update was released on January 30, 2013. This was a Valentine's-themed update, and Hearts were its limited time currency.

The update removed the snow, and the snowmen introduced in the previous update's graphics had changed to show them in a 'melted' state. A new 'splash screen' was introduced with the update.

Players can buy a Mystery Love Box for Donut Tapped Out.png5, which contain either hearts or themed decorations. Hearts are new currency in the update, and you can buy three buildings with them and 8 decorations.

The update added two of the game's currently most expensive buildings - the Escalator To Nowhere and the Popsicle Stick Skyscraper, costing Cash.png1,000,000 and Cash.png2,000,000 respectively.

The update introduced the ability to win money at the Kwik-E-Mart by purchasing a Scratch-R. The Scratch-R is currently in-game and Scratch-Rs are able to be bought every 6 hours. The update also installed the ability to send Valentine's cards to friends' towns. Those players who had reached the end of Level 25 got a special notice explaining that until the game rolled out the next level, players saved up XP to reach the next bonus level. At the start of every bonus level, a screen appeared and the player chose one of three 'present' icons to get either Donut Tapped Out.png1, Donut Tapped Out.png2 or Donut Tapped Out.png3. Bonus levels are currently in-game.

The update brought most likely the biggest bug the game had ever seen - the "Harp of Death". The bug caused the game to crash, and upon launch, the game would freeze and continuously play a 'harp' sound. The bug is still around, but since an unofficial solution was announced, numbers of cases have dropped dramatically.

The event ended on February 28, two weeks after Valentine's Day.

Level 26

Some Tapped Out players posted on the game forums that they had received two content updates (technically). The content of the eleventh content update had been downloaded with the content of the tenth.

A user posted on the forums on February 2, 2012 that the price of the "Escalator To Nowhere" had been changed to Cash.png500,000 with the update; a user posted on that same thread on February 4, 2013 that at least Milhouse's "Eat at Phineas Q. Butterfat's" task had been cut from 8 hours long to 30 minutes long, also with the update. None of these things actually happened on the update's official release.

The update was released officially on February 14, 2013. On that date, players on the Tapped Out forums reported that "The Science Fund" had appeared in the Store, costing $14.99 or £10.49. "The Science Fund" later became one of Gil's offers.

Gorgeous Grampa

The twelfth content update was released on February 28, 2013, and is an episode tie-in with "Gorgeous Grampa".

The App Store description of the update (version 4.1.3) describes the content added in the last update instead of what is in this update.

The update removed the ability to purchase the Valentine's Day update buildings and decorations. The update also added the ability to purchase a "Golden Scratch-R", which had appeared on the iTunes Tapped Out listing a while back in the list of purchases. A Golden Scratch-R costs 99¢/69p/0,89€ and the jackpot is Donut Tapped Out.png100.

St. Patrick's Day 2013

The thirteenth content update was released on March 7, 2013 and was a St. Patrick's Day update. Unlike other themed events, this event had no limited time currency.

The update introduced Tom O'Flanagan and his pub to the game, as well as another themed character, the Leprechaun.

Dark Knight Court

The fourteenth content update was released on March 14, 2013 and was a tie-in with "Dark Knight Court".

This update removed Lisa's greyed-out 30 minute "Meditate" task at the Springfield Buddhist Temple.

Level 27

The fifteenth content update was released on March 21, 2013.

In the thirteenth content update, a task for Lisa to "Meditate" for 30 minutes at the Springfield Buddhist Temple appeared, locked, in Lisa's task list. The task was removed with the next update, before being released officially with this update.

What Animated Women Want

The sixteenth content update was released on April 8, 2013 and is an episode tie-in with "What Animated Women Want".

On April 8, 2013, a user reported that Swanky Fish and Springfield Falls had disappeared from their game, along with the player's Donut Tapped Out.png90. Many users also reported this, as well as other cases where only one of the two had disappeared. The user that originally reported the glitch later provided a solution, which was to re-install the game twice.

Whacking Day

The seventeenth content update was released on April 10, 2013 and is the long-awaited Whacking Day update. The event's limited time currency is snakes. The update bought several new features to the game. This update on Google Play also came with Origin for Android players. The update comes with a new splash screen and a new icon.

This is the first update to offer prizes, and the second requiring the player to tap on a non-playable character to kill them - the first was zombies during the Halloween Update in 2012. For the player to acquire prizes, they must whack up to a certain amount of snakes. The first prize is Fort Sensible, a building, and to acquire it, the player must whack Snake.png150.

The update's limited time currency is snakes. In a way, snakes are not a currency in the update as they are not used to physically purchase things in the store.

A message popped up on April 23, and gave the player 12 free Donuts.

The update will not end on May 2, 2013 as originally thought, but a week later on May 9, 2013. On May 10, Whacking Day was extended to May 16, 2013.

Level 28

Note: The following information may be a mixture of rumors and fact.

Dialogue updates

60 Free Donuts

During June 2012, EA took the game offline to fix the Springfield's affected. Because some towns had been reset to a certain level and their design changed, those players were given Donut Tapped Out.png60 for the inconvenience.

Black Friday Eve

Tapped Out Black Friday Eve Message.png

On November 22, 2012, players got a message from Homer: "Happy Black Friday Eve!". A few players on the EA Tapped Out forums reported that they got donuts after dismissing the message and another player reported that their friend got Cash.png1,000. However, these reports might well be coincidental, like a daily bonus mistaken for a special bonus.

Whacking Day

On April 23, 2013 if you login into your town, you received 12 free Donuts
