Papaya Farm HD
4 out of 5
It’s FarmVille for your Android device… Almost. Now you can be a virtual farmer from virtually anywhere.
If you’re looking for FarmVille Lite, you’ve come to the right place. A barebones, but still worthy entry for apprentice hired hands (like your young children, with your permission.) Farm Story is a better choice for older children and adults looking for a richer FarmVille experience.
Send invitations to any of your friends registered on the Papaya network to get help with specific tasks to earn experience points and virtual cash. Cha-ching!

Who knew that the invention of the Internet-connected smart phone would trigger such massive interest in farming? Virtual farming, that is. From Alaska to Florida, millions of digital farmhands plant and harvest crops daily, turning their hardly-called-work into virtual money, earning experience points along the way.
For Android owners, Papaya Farm HD is a wonderful introduction to the world of virtual farming for kids and adults of all ages. Create a new account (or login to your existing Papaya account), and invite your friends to check out your efforts and help with specific tasks. Your job is to plant virtual crops, harvest the results, and tend to digital farm animals.
The rewards for your effort include virtual money, experience and rep points, all of which open up new seeds and animals to buy, along with additional equipment, upgrades, and more.
Be sure to get as many friends as you can helping out. Their efforts on your behalf (and you helping them) will bring you additional rewards, cyberbucks, and points.
If you’re looking for FarmVille Lite for your Android phont, you’ve come to the right place. A barebones, but still worthy entry for apprentice hired hands (like your young children, with your permission.) When you’re ready for a more robust experience, Farm Story is the logical next step on your Droid; FarmVille on FaceBook and the iPad is the blue ribbon winner.
