Need someone to help collect the Farmville bonuses your neighbors publish in your newsfeed while you are away from Facebook? There's an app for that...
The Farmer's Hero iPhone/iPod/iPad application is a companion tool to your farming skills in the popular Zynga game Farmville. Run this app when you are away from Facebook and let it bring those coins, eggs, collectibles, farmhands, arborists and animals into your giftbox!
Players of Farmville know how important it is to quickly respond to rewards and bonuses published by friends and neighbors. Typically such published treats are gobbled up quickly on a first-come, first-served basis. Since a published item is only available for the first few people to respond they can disappear very quickly.
The more friends and neighbors you have, the more opportunities to claim bonuses such as golden eggs, coins, animals and various other things. However not only are your friends and neighbors going about their daily farming business but they are also competing with you for these coveted rewards.
For those of us who are unable to stare at our Facebook homepage all day long waiting for the next available bonus, we either miss out on all sorts of great items or we rely on someone to help us. And that someone is the Farmer's Hero.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Farmer's Hero uses Facebook Connect to log into your Farmville game. Once logged in it is just a matter of selecting the types of bonuses you want the Hero to retrieve. You can change these settings at any time as you can also change how frequently the Hero checks for new bonuses and whether an audio alert sounds when new items are found.
