The Green Farm app allows you to access your existing Facebook farm or create a brand new one from your iOS device.

As you collect coins you’ll have the opportunity to purchase a huge variety of seeds, animals and buildings with which to customize your farm and make it unique. Go online to visit your friends or invite them over to your farm to help out, and play online mini-games while you wait for your crops to grow. Take on a variety of missions and call in help from tractors, planes and even robots. Enter the daily lottery and see what you can win, and use the push notifications to ensure you never forget to feed your animals or harvest your crops.
Hector Episode 1 HD
Help Detective Inspector Hector fight crime in the mutinous Clappers Wreake – an English town that takes the ‘Great’ out of Britain – in We Negotiate with Terrorists. This bent copper is violent, drunk, corrupt and smothered in curry; but above all, he’s exceptionally comedic. When a hostage crisis erupts in the center of Clappers Wreake, Hector has to make a choice: carry out a terrorist’s demands and save the innocent, or let the hostages die. At the moment Hector’s still on the fence, and it’s up to you to help him. This hidden object adventure is dark, dirty, and damn well brilliant.
