Newsbrief: EA's latest freemium smartphone and tablet release, The Simpsons: Tapped Out, has been temporariliy removed from Apple's App Store due to connectivity issues. The game was released earlier this month, and immediately jumped to the top of the free iPad games charts. EA told Gamasutra last month that it hopes filling a freemium game with characters that users care about will lead to success. However, the game proved a little too popular, and the company has been forced to remove it from the store to stop new players overwhelming the servers. On the game's official Facebook page, the company noted that once a solution has been found, the game will return to the store.
