App description: Welcome to Tap Farm you are just one tap away from owning a farm where you decide what seeds will grow into the most bountiful harvest of cashcrops.

Plant crops that grow as time passes and harvest them to earn more coins and build up your estate. The more you plow, seed and sell your crops for coins, the more you increase the value of your farm, and your value as a farmer. More coins and more farming experience enables you to expand the plots of land you own and increases your ability to enrich your farm with a variety of seeds, animals, trees and buildings.

You can also visit real neighbors to see how others have built up their farms.
You are just minutes away from planting your first seeds and reaping the rewards of your first harvest, so giddy-up, farmer!

Please note that Tap Farm is free to play, but you are able to purchase game items with real money. If you dont want to use this feature, please disable in-app purchases.

Because they like the "non-awkward perspective" of course! How long before the promo codes appear?

Shill?

Is shill a real english word or is it slang? All of a sudden I keep hearing (reading) it and although I get the general idea of what it means, I don't actually know what it means.

In a nutshell:
- Developer creates an app
- Developer wants to create quick buzz on app
- Developer gets team, friends, etc to go into itunes and all rate 5 stars
(Variation - Creates numerous fake accounts on Touch Arcade and posts wonderful things about app in forums)
- Team, friends, etc (Fake Accounts) attempt to appear like they have no affiliation with said Developer

Thank you

Thanks westgd and squeaker! Wish the game did not require wifi. There are so many games like this that keep coming out but they are always wifi only. Since I don't always have wifi, I sadly looked at it try to load for five minutes and then deleted it. If only you could play and then connect to wifi later to update your stats (or whatever goes online).
