How do we get this new update? In my itunes apps it keeps telling me no updates available. Have even deleted the game and readded. Some advice would be grand. Cheers

You have to reinstall the original Farm Story. All the additions of Flowers, Snap, and Summer are on there along with the new update.

If you have already accepted your gift, then go to your farm. Click on the tools icon (left arrows), then click the edit icon and then an inventory icon will appear in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. Click on the icon and like magic you will see your gifts.

As has been mentioned before, if you are using the Farm Story Snap or Summer you will not be able to see the new features. You have to be using the original Farm Story app. This has all the recently added features, including the photo facility and the new summer additions :)

You will know someone erased you when a neighbor you had no longer shows up on your neighbor list.

This is how to delete neighbours:
Go into main menu...tap on social...Neighbours tab..then at top next to Neighbours theres a small button that says Edit...tap that and Remove buttons will appear by your neighbours. Make sure u tap the Done at top when u finished to save :)

With the new update, my farm no longer refreshes to show I've been watered unless I go to a neighbors farm and come back, or quit to the desktop, launch the multitasking bar and force Farm Story to quit and relaunch it.

As it stands, I keep losing out on watered squares if I don't do this right before I harvest.

Do you pay for the gifts you send?

I don't think we have to pay for gifts (yet). I have given gifts to all my neighbours and my coins stayed the same.
One thing that I'm not sure is if the items we have been given will disappear from our inventory in time if we decide not to use them in the farm now.

You have to download the Original farm story again, that's the most recent version atm.

Gifts do not cost money and I do not believe they will disappear from your inventory if you do not use them. I do think there is a max number of gifts you can receive and send in a 24 hour period though.

The Inventory can be found by tapping on Tools and then Edit. Then on the left side of your screen you will see the Inventory icon. Tap on that to see your inventory.

To remove neighbors, first download our latest update, Farm Story 1.5 (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/farm-story/id367107953?mt=8).

In this application, go to Menu -> Social -> Neighbors, hit the "Edit" button, and hit "Remove" on whichever neighbors you no longer want.

It would be good if the deleting neighbours option could be enhanced
to also delete those people in the community who ask you to add their
ID and then never pick up the option so it sits on your Social Page
"invite friends" forever and ever and ever. Perhaps this option could
be added in next update.

I agree. It's quite annoying to have invites stay in your page the entire time. I've invited a few people who don't seem to play anymore, and it would be great if I could just cancel the invite.

FANTASTIC that we can now delete neighbours. The only problem is that it was not very well advertised. No notification when you opened up the previous app (flowers, summer etc)
Even on the app store when you look at the latest version the delete neighbours and gift additions aren't even mentioned in the update log ... very unusual.

I spent all yesterday posting on my neighbours walls telling them to download the original "Farm Story" app to get the new options. Mainly so I can start getting some more gifts too.
I think this was a major oversight but very pleased with the update and the work you guys have put into it.
Well done.

Thanks guys for the deleting neighbours and the gift system is an extra bonus.

I don't want to start another thread because I have mentioned this before when the whole deleting neighbours discussion was in full flight so I hope this gets read here.
Not complaining because being able to delete inactive neighbours goes a long way and seeing their star rating is also good but there is still no way to tell if they are watering you or not.

Not all neighbours leave a message on your wall when they water (and I can understand this as they are trying to minimise time spent watering). The news feed tries to correct this but with it only showing the last 8 or so messages it is unfortunately not much use to help with this.

It would be good if beside their star rating it tells you whether they watered you today or not or even if the news feed held as many messages as your wall (or at least the last 2-3 days worth)

As I said this is not meant to be any kind of a complaint as what you have done so far for this free game has been extraordinary. This is more of a suggestion as I'm sure this will come up, if it hasn't already. As once a neighbour is on 4 stars it's not too hard to maintain it without visiting all nieghbours.
Even if this was an addition to a paid version. I would be quite happy to pay for this service.

Thanks again for this great update and all your hard work towards it.
Excellent work.

yeah and as I said the news feed only shows the last 10. Add to that the fact that anyone with 4 stars for watering will also get watered by the community you are going to have no idea who is watering you unless they leave a message on your wall. An easy fix to this would be to allow the news feed to hold at least 2-3 days worth.

Fantastic update, few suggestions

* some way of telling your neighbours you are away or on holiday
* advertise the new updates so people know when, how, etc
* some kind of limited time animals or plants so all farms look more different over time?

Great for a free app, keep up good work! Love it

Love the update.

Still two things:
1. I love that you can now see how many red stars a neighbour has. This gives some indication on how active someone is. However, there are some low level neighbours that have 3 red stars and I know for a fact that some of them have not played for weeks if not months. How come?
2. It still takes too many clicks to go from one neighbour to another.

how about a peach tree? banana tree? please some more new crops as well would be good.

There should be a gift-button (symbol) when you're visiting an neighbor on his/her farm. Another option is to use your list of neighbors - there should be a "gift"-button (word) as well next to the "visit"-button.
If you can find neither of these I bet you're using a wrong version of the game.
