My current favorite APP is Hayday. This APP reminds me a lot of FarmTown on Facebook for those of you who are familiar with that. However with this wonderful touch screen farm, it is much more interactive! This app is acceptable for students to use, but it would be a game just for fun. For your personal use, you may sync it to your Facebook account to find your friends on there. You may also sync it to your game center account if you have one. It is not a requirement to have your facebook or game center friends to play, but it is helpful if they do! Here are a couple of screenshots to show you what the app looks like.
Overall view of the farm.
You can fill orders to earn experience points. Later when you level up, you can take orders from a steamboat and get larger amounts of experience points and coins.
You can sell items at your roadside stand. You can also buy from your friend's stand. If you click on the mailbox, you can view the current ads and by clicking on the ad you can travel to their site and buy items also.
Your friends show up at the bottom. If you connect to facebook, your friends will show up automatically. The ones in yellow are facebook/game center friends. The ones in blue are ones that I chose to follow. So you can follow other farms without even knowing the people.
If you have time for an addicting farm game, then Hayday is for you. It's super easy, quick to play, and a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy!
