GR: Social networking also plays a role in the Sims lives. Can you tell us more about that that includes?
Sarah Nelson: Your Sims’ phone is now a Smart Phone, with cool apps that help build the social networking skill! Your Sims can text other Sims--you can even send a “woohooty” text to a romantic interest. If they’re available, they’ll come right over! And, if it doesn’t go well, you can break up over text.
Sims will also have the ability to blog from their Smart Phone! Sims can select a blog theme and attach photos to their blog. The more they blog, the more followers they get, which can help them gain influence with social groups faster, have better attended protests, and get more simoleans for donations and buyouts of their blog!
The Sim Finder App helps Sims easily find an unmet NPC Sim and get them to their lot! The coolest app to unlock is the Relationship Transmogrifier which allows Sims to set nearly any relationship status they desire with any Sim!!
