Thread: Township Shortcuts on Android Devices

    Township Shortcuts on Android Devices

    Howdy Townshippers!

    Weโ€™d like to share the feature available on Android devices with OS version 7.1+
    Kindly note that it works only if you downloaded the game from Google Play store ๐Ÿ•ต


    Have you ever wanted to perform a specific action within the game, from outside the game? Like going directly to Train Station without having to open the game first and then moving around your town? Or collecting produced goods exactly from the needed factory instead of tapping wrong ones?
    Thatโ€™s what Shortcuts developed by Android for all apps are for! ๐Ÿ”ฅ


    How do I use Shortcuts?

    Method #1:
    Long tap Township icon โ€” youโ€™ll see a list with three shortcuts. They are related to three most recent events happened in the game while you were out. E.g. you have a new friend request, or someone has sent you a clover ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ€

    Method #2:
    You can pin shortcuts you use most often right to your home screen for even quicker access ๐Ÿ“Œ
    To do that:
    1. long tap Township icon
    2. drag-and-drop the needed shortcut

    PLEASE NOTE: a shortcut might be removed or greyed out, but rest assured that itโ€™s not a glitch. This may happen in three cases:
    • you reinstalled the game
    • you changed the language in the game
    • you cleared the gameโ€™s data in Settings > Apps & Notifications

    You can easily restore your shortcuts by deleting the inactive ones and then repeating the steps from Method #2 ๐Ÿ‘†

    What Shortcuts does Township currently have?

    The pinned shortcuts allow you to get into the needed location directly from your home screen. The shortcuts from the list you see after a long tap on the gameโ€™s icon are related to the in-game features.

    ๐Ÿ” Farms
    • farm goods are ready to collect
    • time to feed the animals

    ๐Ÿš‚ Train Station
    • unload your trains
    • someone helped you fill the railcar

    ๐Ÿ›ซ Airport
    • the plane is back in town
    • the plane is about to take off
    • someone helped you fill the crate

    ๐Ÿ‘‹ Friends
    • you have a new friend request

    โ˜˜ House of Luck
    • you have enough clovers to play

    ๐Ÿ‘‘ Clovers
    • you have received new clovers

    ๐Ÿญ Factory
    • collect the produced items

    ๐Ÿ† Regatta
    • the race starts soon
    • your task is running out of time

    โ›ต Yacht Club
    • a new collection will appear promptly

    ๐Ÿ”” Market
    • you can hire the dealer for free or thereโ€™s a special offer

    โš’ Mine
    • the treasury is a few steps away

    ๐Ÿค Requests
    • you can send a new product request to your Co-op chat

    ๐Ÿš Orders
    • a new helicopter order is available


    Share your feedback, guys ๐Ÿ“ข๐Ÿ’ฌ๐Ÿ‘‡
    Any suggestions on adjusting some options or perhaps ideas on adding new ones?
    Weโ€™ll pass your thoughts right on to our devs!

    Guess these will be useful with my next tablet. My Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 has 7.0 and will not likely be upgraded to 7.1.

    NEW TABLET THURSDAY! NEW TABLET THURSDAY! Hmmmm....wonder what operating system it has on it. *Fingers crossed* My last one would have stood no chance. It was still operating on Abacus.

    Well I am glad to find out that this is not a second April Fools item!
    Long tapping the TS icon shows me indeed three ingame options.

    And when I select 'Market' the game opens on its regular way but the first I see is the Market place and next step is it is opening itself!
    Very nice option during the period of renting Raja!

    What a great thing you created Playrix! Thank you for this!
    This is far more better then giving us the countless new buttons on our screens where many other people had asked for on the Forum's wishlist.

    So for any Androider with an older version there has something new to wish for.
    And I hope Playrix will roll out this new feature for everyone using an other system ASAP so the can enjoy it too!

    Hi Rocky Playrix cannot do something the OS do not provide for them so it is not only up to them. This new feature was introduced in Android 7,1. That is why older version do not have access to the new feature.

    I have no idea if this option is available for devs on iOS.

    Dear Gray lady,

    With "So for any Androider with an older version there has something new to wish for" I mean an analog wish, for a new phone or tablet

    Excuses mois for the misunderstanding.

    I was replying to your wish for Playrix introducing them ASAP on the other platforms. If the other OS do not include that option/tool for the devs, Playrix can't do a thing about it.
