Turn off the Birds Please
by 17Me1717 on 2020/07/24 08:59
Hi! I very much like this game. Lots to do, many activities to purchase, feed, play with and care for your Koi Pond (s). I bought this game for relaxation, and the fish and the water sounds do exactly that. My one problem is that the continuous high-pitched bird sounds give me a headache. There is no relaxing with all that screeching going on. So, yes, I could turn off all sound, but then I would miss the relaxing water sounds. I would like this game a lot, but I would be much happier, and be inclined to continue playing it and making many more purchases and up my rating to five stars if the authors would incorporate a feature that allows the user to select which sounds they wish to hear while playing the game. Thank you for your consideration of my request, and for a visually beautiful game. C
How to back up my pound
by doctor who who on 2020/07/07 21:06
I can’t back up my pond I bought coins and every time I try to back up my pound it says timed out
Excellent!
by 9042671 on 2020/06/25 06:43
For many years it’s been one of a kind, most satisfying combination of natural beauty and technology. Many thanks to the creator!

I just downloaded. Really enjoying my fish. I keep getting an unknown error when I try to log in to Facebook. I can’t find anything that explains how to make my fish happy.
Almost perfect
by Tank Stars! on 2020/03/30 04:43
This game is awesome, I just got it a few days ago and I love it, I get fun daily prizes, I get to costomize my pond, and I get to buy new koi fish! Everything about this game is fun, feeding and playing with my fish, cleaning the pond and winning things. One of my favorite things is that the prize wheel is not super unfair, of course you still get a few small prizes but your chance of winning SOMETHING is high. There is just a few things I wish were different. The first is the koins, for me it's pretty hard to get them I wish it would be a little bit easier to gain them. Another is the playing part, now I don't have to say anything too major but I just wanna say that after you maybe clean the filter and take care of you fish unless if you rich in koins there's not much left to do for a little while. For some people this is a good thing but, I think there should be some other things to do while you play. I know this isnt too much but it would make a huge difference! Now let me see the other side, from what I am aware of this game has NO ADS! That's pretty amazing for a game like this. Now for those of you who want to progress fast just remember, this game is for relaxation it needs patients to play😌.... Just remember that 😉 THANK YOU!!!!
I always come back.
by Rushed2Review on 2020/01/29 21:29
I downloaded this on my kindle fire a few years ago. To this day it’s my favorite fish ap. I do wish they would update the graphics and add more items to customize your pond with. The ap as a whole is pretty dead and there are no events except daily ones. Also to those of you complaining about money- there’s a really simple way to go about gaining koins. Focus on breeding two koi where one is at 0 and one is at 1 where it costs 0 koins to breed- or fish that breed for the amount of koins they sell for (so if it costs to breed them at 8 koins with the chance of either getting a fish that will sell for 8 or 11 koins- that’s a good bet).
Original was better
by Jrb333 on 2020/01/19 13:51
Had the original pocket pond. Loved it but developer stopped updating app. Found PP2 and thought it would be an improved version. Animations are nothing like original. Fish don’t look real like they used to. It being more of a game now wasn’t my cup of tea either.
KJ
by KoiJyl on 2020/01/17 23:04
What happened to the original pocket pond version the whole family including young children could enjoy? Just feeding, adding fish, frogs, dragonflies, fishing rod? Fishing for the largest one you could catch? This one is not what I want at all. I’ll be deleting it. Too complicated and time-consuming, with buying and no pond time!!😡
While it’s fun. It’s confusing and annoying
by Chris Isett on 2020/01/08 05:26
So the koi guide is basically useless. And you can’t connect anything to hang with friends so your stuck with the taunt of “do this with a friend and you get some free stuff”. Then the filters for the ponds barely stay clean despite them saying that they last a few days (upgraded). But they basically get dirtier at the same time if not faster then and the standard. The koin spin is rigged to where you will either get 0 or you’ll get 1. In the rare chance that you get more than that it will be just barely holding onto the peg that would let it give you ten. I rightfully won 10 koins but they said “faulty, spin again” Add onto the fact that the daily gifts give you a free koi (gets annoying after the first pond fills up and you can’t afford a new on or don’t want to have to clean double the filters). Or a dragonfly pack of around 12 that after a while you have too many to count. Even after that the dragonflies are there one moment. Then gonna the next. You don’t even tap them to kill them and they disappear. They took something that was supposed to be soothing. And turned it into a lottery (literally during the koin spin) or micro transactions filled annoyance
Tutorial too long
by Jub9000 on 2019/12/26 15:39
I never even got to play the game because the stupid tutorial won’t go away until you finish it. What if I don’t want to do that? What if I already know how it works? I should be able to bypass the tutorial. This was a simple, fun app 10 years ago. Now it’s so complicated and monetized that it’s no longer fun.
dis game cool
by Mydumbname on 2019/12/09 20:14
I love this game but i wish there was no limit to how many ponds u can have. And i rich in this game cuz i found a glitch were if u buy a less common koi, then go back to yesterday on the device clock, sell it, then u get 1000000 credits and koins or more i also wish u culd play minigames in it
Koi nice job
by JKk D on 2019/12/02 19:44
I played original one and # two and zen one also 👍 ...... # 1 was great & # 2 lost few features 🙀👎... BUT still great .. The zen one some features missing also and is totally different layout you get free , frogs, bushes, flys, turtles, dragonfly's and more different koi koi and more KOI free lots of stuff 1 & 2 charged you for 👎 .. free in the zen koi .. All & All they ALL have fantastic graphics bright colors koi do tricks go in circles nibble fingers .... You can breed them sell them fatten them up and they gain value a lot of options 😎 ALL three by the same place ** tiggerWave LLC ** Good job, Thanks , John
Back up
by Lunete1961 on 2019/10/10 14:38
This game requires in app purchase do a backup. Then the backup doesn’t work anyway. Disappointed.
Not worth the time!
by johnl62556 on 2019/09/08 22:15
A large instruction panel was in the middle of the app. Wouldn’t go away.
No fun at all
by Pandora Q on 2019/09/02 18:21
I had the original pocket pond... that was great! This version never gets you to the point where you can just enjoy the app. One task after another, complicated, & I don’t know if I inadvertently bought stuff just trying to get to the pond. No fun at all.
AMAZIN
by KTinCT on 2019/08/26 04:27
Pocket pond 1 and 2 were my games i played when i was about maybe 4? And i just got back into it and its just as good as i remembered! Love this game keep up the good work!
Where’s the calming pond?
by loszi on 2019/08/25 22:17
Originally I had this and you just watched fish moving in a pond. So soothing. Now you have to do things till you’re a nervous wreck! I’m deleting this...
What money do you have to spend?
by Moedude52 on 2019/08/25 19:42
Love this game. Have it on 3 iPads. Been playing for a month. Downloaded a long time ago. Played it once. Thought it was cute. About a month ago revisited my ponds all my fish were dead. No wonder if you don’t take of them they die. Revived them all. Caught some new ones and set up breeding ponds. In a month I’ve got 12 ponds on 2 iPads. I earn 100-150 coins a day on each iPad. No need to spend money. This game teaches entrepreneurship, patience and responsibility. For that it is a great game that teaches naturally. If something blows up and I lose it all. It’s a game. Start over and have a ball.
Like flushing money down the toilet
by 18204 --影-- on 2019/08/01 16:07
I’m going to start by simply saying this: do not download this app. I had this app a few years ago and had a pretty big koi collection in at least 3 ponds. Now not only is all of that gone forever but there is no way for me to back up my current collection unless I pay for it. Most other apps will let you back up for free. It seems like this app is always trying to get you to pay for something, be it koins or credits or the ability to back up your game data. This is garbage. Plus, there is no way to connect the app to Facebook because it says that it’s in “development mode.” I think that the developers just abandoned this game and aren’t removing it from the App Store because it still makes money even in its current state. The reason I uninstalled the game in the first place is because it requires you to visit every day and keep the pond clean or else your fish die. I didn’t have that kind of time then and I don’t have that kind of time now, especially now that the app is even worse than it was before. I downloaded this app again for my daughter but I will be looking for something else now- a better, well maintained app that actually deserves my money. I will be uninstalling after I leave this review.
Horrible. #1 was great
by somecrazynickname on 2019/06/27 17:00
Pocket Pond 2 will NOT let you just play it or play with it. Now you turn it on and the instructions go on and on and on and on and on. It is all about breeding the koi and decorating the pond. I used to LOVE this game for playing with children who were having a hard time sitting on the bus or waiting in a line with their parents. NO LONGER! You cannot just play this game! It is all about buying stuff and breeding koi to sell them, etc. And it is all about having to step through their instructions for 20 minutes or more and NEVER making it to just be able to play the game.
Garbage! Apple remove!!
by ca bubba on 2019/06/09 14:17
Developer no longer supporting this app
I love it but only one problem...
by PicaGirl2 on 2019/03/12 03:03
Now, you see, this game is really interesting and fun, but I wish there was more than just getting fish and some other minor stuff. I think it would be cool if you could look at the genetics of your fish. Also, I don’t think it’s very realistic that you can just make your fish grow up with a few coins. There’s also one other issue. On the wheel game, you can hack it by placing your finger on the wheel, spinning four times, and letting go on the amount of koins you want. That has to be fixed. But I love the graphics and zen design of it all. Keep up the good work!
Does Not Work
by Jimt29 on 2019/03/10 03:33
3/9/19 The fish swim around, you can give them food. Menus don’t work. Sound effects work. Nothing else works. Dead center is an informational square that covers 70 % of the screen. It never goes away. It is not usable and from what I’ve read, never will be.
ECGil
by ECGIL on 2019/03/01 15:30
This is a ton of fun! The trick is to breed what fish you have in order to gain koins and credit and get more valuable fish. It is very beneficial to master the foil in order to gain seven koins. One very big drawback for this app is that it does not play as well on Apple products as it does on android products. You do not get any of the sound effects and vibrations on Apple. My LG G5 phone is a ton of fun.
Good game,bad frog
by donn whoan on 2019/02/23 20:31
It is a very fun and relaxing game. I like my fish-lasertag and applesauce. I have one problem with it- the frog. I. Hate. The. Frog. When you click on it and it swims across the water there is no current of water rippling off it. There is nothing. It is so annoying and I can’t handle it. That is all.
Love it but can’t connect to social
by Kottonkandy555 on 2019/02/23 17:34
So I love this game but when I try to connect to Facebook to get the social aspect of it, it tells me there is an error with the app and that I don’t have permission to connect.
Fantastic game, you don’t HAVE to pay.
by Lazur vision on 2019/01/29 05:21
You CAN play this game without spending money, in fact it’s more fun this way. Start slow, work your way towards more ponds for breeding. Breeding the smaller cheaper Koi will make you more money if you find the right mix. I had 1-2 “rare” koi ponds I would breed just to see what I could get. The rest of my ponds were dedicated to breeding low cost fish for Koin. You can do less ponds for money because after a while it seems like a task. Overall a fantastic game. I’ve been playing it for a while now.
Facebook problem
by Cfjvfhb on 2019/01/17 22:50
Love this game but signing on to Facebook doesn’t work which is holding me back from doing some stuff on the game so I hope it can get fixed. Thank you
Nothing works
by Kc032d on 2018/11/12 13:53
All I ever get is error messages. Social connection doesn’t work, back up doesn’t work. I spent money to back it up and it didn’t work. Don’t download this, it’s a waste of time.
Tutorial is the length of a novel
by DilRyeMaster on 2018/11/11 19:22
Just wanted a cute app for my cat to play with. This thing wanted me to get schooled on koi breeding and aquarium cleaning and diet before it’d let me do anything. My cat won’t be making any use of these features.
Worthless!!
by GeoJelly on 2018/10/06 22:42
No way to just see the pond with fish in it. Most menu buttons do NOT work. Absolutely worthless!!

It’s a nice game but there’s a problem, I can’t log into Facebook it says it’s in development mode, I’ll 5 star when this is changed
Good Game
by DragonaBrine on 2018/09/11 13:15
It’s fun to play and really peaceful but there’s one part that’s aggravating, it keeps telling me I can’t sign into Facebook and that the game is still in development mode when I try, I’d really like it if you fixed this (Will 5 star if fixed)
No fun
by thanksful user on 2018/09/01 05:42
I want relax from it like in an old versions, but now it is a routine game where even learning into is extremely boring.
Facebook
by DanielX6010 on 2018/08/29 19:47
Can’t login to Facebook. Really trying to keep my game since I have put work into it and have rare fish, but I’m trying transfer them to my new phone so.. really expected more
Frustrating!
by Siskread on 2018/08/12 19:43
I reloaded this because I enjoyed a long time ago... However the start screen wouldn't go away!
Absolutely worthless. Nothing works.

Just as stated... nothing works.
Don’t backup
by greeneyes81 on 2018/06/01 12:17
I can’t backup it said error all the time and already spend money for that, contacted costumer support and nothing.
Unhappy customer
by IrishByker on 2018/04/28 23:18
After sending 2 emails to Tech Support with no response, I will give a BAD review. I never spend money on these apps but, having reached higher levels and finally collecting rare fish, I literally spent my birthday money to buy a bunch of coins (I’m 58, lol!). A few weeks ago, the app crashed for days. When I reinstalled, everything was gone, unable to restore anything.. I asked for the coins to be recredited to my pond but no one will even respond. That’s very poor customer service.
Old version!
by Gramigram65 on 2018/04/22 03:39
Your old version way perfect! Moms loved it! Kept babies focussed! I would gladly pay for the old version. No feeding! Just sound! Thanks!
Mandatory tour makes it unusable
by flyinghatchet on 2018/03/31 01:24
Deleted before finishing the mandatory tour which is a waste of time for somebody who has used the app previously.
Developers word is meaningless. Backup unavailable
by Isaac Hare on 2018/03/17 17:12
Spent over $100.00 on this game and backups worked great until 2018. I would like a refund due to fraud for being promised backups. I thought it was weird keeping this pond but whatever I wasted 4 years.
Fun but...
by Sadone55 on 2018/03/13 19:58
But I’m unable to back up my ponds because it always says, that the operation has timed out. I haven’t been able to back up my ponds since October of last year. I will give it a higher rating when the function is fixed. ☹️
This app is no longer supported
by wingz007 on 2018/03/05 13:34
Don’t spend a nickel on this apps features. The developer is no longer supporting the app. You’ll lose all your efforts. LOTS OF BUGS NOW, and you cannot backup to prevent loss of your efforts. Apple would be honest to remove it from store.

So realistic
by ellenoc on 2018/02/16 13:56
People need to know that the developer is no longer honoring the promised back ups, so don't spend your money expecting back ups. Apple should be fixing this because it is a form of fraud. A nice combination of art and gaming. The only thing I don't like is that if you can't continually play the game, your fish will die. This happened to my brother. He didn't have the coins to revive his favorite fish. He had some really nice ones. Mine almost died and I check every day. I don't think having the fish die is necessary. Jan 1, 2018 game doesn't seem to be allowing back ups anymore. Don't put your money into this expecting to back up. The vender seems to have abandoned support for that. It is an amazing app except for that.
Almost there...
by babydragz on 2018/01/28 06:55
A ton of fun but please make this playable without having to spend a ton of money. That’s where it doesn’t remain fun anymore. Some of the filter upgrades and pond decor koin amount just doesn’t make sense. From premium filter costing 15 koin for 10 fish capacity to the next being ultra filter for 12 capacity costing 50 koins? It’s just two more fish? And the red rock costs double what the grey rock does? It doesn’t make sense to me. You might as well stick to breeding the low cost fish anyway because the actual benefits of breeding rare fish doesn’t surpass how much it costs to breed them. This would be such a successful and popular game if it was playable without having to rely on in app purchases. Otherwise everything like breeding takes a ridiculous amount of time and then I forget about the game completely. Also, in app backups are not working and I’m not able to visit my friends ponds nor can they visit mine. Please fix these issues, it would be so so worth it for your users.
BEST GAME EVER

Programmer Gone. Game is no longer maintained.
by LadyDocFL on 2018/01/18 16:58
The programmer that wrote this beautiful game has disappeared. The ability to visit other ponds no longer works. You can maintain your own pond but you can no longer gift or trade koi (fish) with anyone else. This used to be a fantastic game but without the programmer to maintain it, things are failing. This was written by a single programmer, not a company where someone else could take over. Find something else.

PLEASE UPDATE GAME...
by Smokin... on 2017/09/26 00:56
The game is a lot of fun and I enjoy playing it. I've only made a couple of purchases and had no problems. THE GAME DEFINITELY NEEDS UPDATED TO KEEP UP WITH NEWER PHONES!!! There is problems when you purchase more than 1 lily pad for 1 tank, they overlap and then you can't have two frogs in 1 tank and since a lot of the extra points you get are for how many of (something) you put in 1 tank you kinda lose out there! "YEAH" Thank you so much for updating Pocket Pond 2! I'm so happy you did. I love this game! The fish and frogs are so realistic and it's just fun to go fishing. Thank you again, you made my day!😘
It KILLED my FISH!!!
by KLovil on 2017/08/29 20:25
I'm sorry, but killing off the fish because I HAVE to live my REAL life just isn't right. Then I'm supposed to pay to revive them? I thought this was supposed to be a RELAXING game. But it's VERY upsetting to find them DEAD! And there is no way to earn enough coins to initially build up the basics without spending ACTUAL money. Please! The first Pocket Ponds is SO much better about that. AND I think the fish look a HECK of a lot more realistic. I gotta delete this. It's just too upsetting.

Almost perfect - Ambience sounds don't work
by Danissuperawesome on 2017/08/13 14:06
I love this, but I'd use it much more often if the sounds I purchased worked. The other sounds work like when you tap the water the splash sound works but I don't get to hear the sounds of the birds or the water like the forest sounds or the tropical birds. My phone's volume is way up, and my phone's mute button is off - It tells me to be sure these things are in the correct position, and there are no internal settings that I can find to control sounds within the game. Frustrating and makes the whole thing fall flat. I purchased this more as a Zen / relaxing outlet but without the ambience sounds I am very disappointed. If that worked I'd probably give it 5 stars.
Rating of you new game.... If I can Even give it a 1!!!!!'
by Gamer 5642 *24-7* on 2017/07/30 12:45
Do not download this game. If you do not spend money you really can not advance.. This game was cool but now there just money hungry!
Social doesn't work
by N8_1231 on 2017/07/29 14:29
I guess the app hasn't been touched by the developer for 2 years, but it would be nice if the social aspect was either fixed or removed. My fiancé and I love this game but we can't visit each other's ponds, which was half the reason we installed.
O.K.
by Alpacalips!! on 2017/07/11 14:26
This is a good calm relaxing game, but not when all your fish are dead! I went on vacation for only two days and I came back and all my fish were dead. I don't know what to do other than convincing my mom to get a coin packet! 🙂🙁
Meh
by Kiyamima on 2017/06/24 05:04
Has the potential as it is a solid idea but failed in execution. The creators don't even give you a feasible way to earn Koins so it makes the game/app useless because even if you buy a certain number of Koins it is never enough to get anything really started.
Great Game, Really Fun
by DragonflyStar on 2017/06/11 15:56
I personally really enjoy this app. I love how new koi can have any combination of their parent's colors and how each species is a classified rarity. To me the game is pretty complicated and there must've been a lot of work to make it, and yet it feels so simple and relaxing to play. The only suggestions I have for the game's developers would be to make the pond decorations a little cheaper.
Used to be better
by ArtSage7 on 2017/05/30 16:50
It used to be better. Now you gotta pay for everything and the ambience sounds don't work. I like how iFish Pond used to be. They don't even respond to their support email...
What happened
by Amycas on 2017/05/16 02:01
This used to be a fun little app. I updated and now it's like a complex game. There are so many instructions that you never actually get to play with the fish. It also used to be fun for my daughter but now, since she can't read yet, she can't even play it. Why do you need so many instructions to play with koi!?
Anyone else have a problem with this?
by GazGrrl on 2017/04/24 14:32
I am unable to use any of the Ambiances that I have purchased. I also cannot preview any of them before purchase. And, why no update for the new OS?
Made me very sad
by Mars rover engineer on 2017/04/24 02:53
I didn't like this app because I worked so hard. and l didn't play for a few days and when l came back, my fish were dead!😢 l couldn't revive my fishes because l didn't have enough koins.l think you shouldn't have to pay for everything. -S., age 8

I really enjoy playing this game. It is a very fun real time fish breeding game. However it needs an update. I recently got a 9.7" iPad Pro to replace my 2nd generation iPad and this app is not completely compatible with iPad Pro and iOS 10. It says it can slow down my iPad. Please update this app to be compatible with my iPad.
Kids love it
by Rrpdq on 2017/04/08 12:45
I work with special needs kids who love to play with and feed the fish. It is a way for them to play in the water without getting wet. Please update this app for future iOS updates.
Great entertainment
by Smmozie on 2017/04/08 04:45
Great fun
TOO EXPENSIVE $$$$$$$$$$$
by La Finger on 2017/04/05 15:17
Just recently they JACKED THE PRICES OF COINS UP BIG TIME. I have had this game and played it daily for 3 months. Now the prices of the coins you need to buy and breed Koi get jacked up by over 100%. A fun game that has now become too pricey. RIP OFF ALERT. $$$$$$$$$
Relaxing
by htefft2 on 2017/04/05 10:06
This is a beautiful & relaxing app. I play daily but my iPhone keeps telling me that if the developers don't update this app will become obsolete. Please update! Thank you.
Need to update
by Annoyed in AZ1234 on 2017/04/01 14:51
You guys need to update this app or will be able to be used.
Bring back original pocket pond
by Outthebox on 2017/03/17 16:23
Please bring back the original pocket pond. It was my sons goto app when he needed to relax and it's great for eye tracking for special needs kids.
Terrible!
by TheDavidWD on 2017/03/01 03:33
Right from the start, the app was more trouble that I expected. The initial "set up" was complicated (to get out of one screen we had to rename a fish ???), the icons on the screen were unresponsive and the app seemed to lock up several times (on an iPad). Too bad it was unlike the original version of "pocket pond"!
Ambiance
by Bgkkmb on 2017/02/27 14:53
WHY DOESN'T THE AMBIANCE WORK????? SO FRUSTRATING!!!!
So sad
by JWolck on 2017/02/18 21:45
It is with great sadness that I need to remove this app from my iPad. I have played it for years, despite my no longer seeing the progress bar move. I now get a message saying that it will slow down my iPad since the developers have not updated it.
It's gotten boring after a while
by Pokelover#1 on 2017/02/15 02:44
I used to really like this game and it used to be interesting getting a new fish every once in a while but I wish u could add some magical breeds like ones with whiskers and wings and stuff and also more animals please because it does not seem like enough any more and could u also add something the dragonflies can land on so they don't get eaten by the frog, otherwise very nice work!
Very unrealistic
by sunspotsbonaire on 2017/01/10 17:10
Disappointing animation. Fish seem limited to screen size and do not go out of frame. Not interesting at all
NO SOUND
by lstpzlpc on 2017/01/08 03:47
I have sound in the app on my ipro tablet, but not on my iphone 7s plus ???
Help
by Ahdownsianzosnaoxns on 2017/01/08 02:14
I just downloaded this app and there is a annoying message on the screen that won't go away!
So Calming...... Feel Zen...
by QuillKayla on 2016/12/27 03:39
I love this game. It is so fun to take care of the little fish that swim around in your pond. There aren't barely any in app purchases and I like the fish varieties. The fish are so colorful, and I like to go fishing for a surprise fish! It is so fun, because you never know what you are going to get until you pull it out of the water. So, if you are thinking about getting this game, think no more... DOWNLOAD NOW!!!!!
Make tutorial skip able
by meno1 on 2016/12/23 02:00
The original was great, quick fun. But it stopped working so I tried this Complicated and annoying sequel, disappointing.
Something's wrong
by Cobra Commandress on 2016/12/20 17:17
Today I played this app and later I opened it and the whole screen was white. Please fix this
Great Game
by chulisha on 2016/12/17 21:20
This is a great game that helps you if you need to be more responsible. Taking care of a pet takes work and multiple more. Nice work
Needs update
by YourName123456 on 2016/12/12 19:59
I immensely enjoy this app but it needs an update or it's getting deleted. Fix bugs as per other reviews.
Why does a pond game require multiple currencies?
by Nottakenstopmakingmerewrite on 2016/11/23 04:29
Why any currency at all? I downloaded this for my cat...do people even want to clean their real fish filters? That is not fun. Two of three fish in my pond are frozen in a stationary position. Maybe I have to buy fish movements? This "game" is a joke.
Love & HATE
by LilLRJ on 2016/11/09 04:58
I loved this game until I found out it doesn't transfer my pond to my new phone!!!!! I hate it!!!!! I hope that they will change it. Otherwise I have to stop playing this game as I can't always play the game on my old phone. I love my fishes, but I can't get them back on my new phone!!!!!
Needs an update
by Cindisuef on 2016/11/06 16:46
The developer really need to may a little attention to this app. It really needs an update. If you don't have much room in your phones memory I would steer clear of this one until they update it. It will really slow your phone down.
Facebook doesn't work
by RedPanda360 on 2016/10/23 21:26
Every time I try to sign in to facebook it opens minecraft and says it's unknown error can you fix it if you can the game would be pretty good
Relaxing but boring after a while
by Versia A. on 2016/10/15 15:30
I love the game and all the different colors you can get but if y'all could add a bit more complex breeding like lineages so koi could display traits from further back that would be cool. Maybe add different kinds of koi as well? :) otherwise it's a good casual game.
Love my Pocket Pond II
by Photogalster on 2016/10/14 23:29
Something happened with the new update to IOS 10, lost the ambience sound. Still love it.
Turn off the Birds Please
by 17Me1717 on 2020/07/24 08:59
Hi! I very much like this game. Lots to do, many activities to purchase, feed, play with and care for your Koi Pond (s). I bought this game for relaxation, and the fish and the water sounds do exactly that. My one problem is that the continuous high-pitched bird sounds give me a headache. There is no relaxing with all that screeching going on. So, yes, I could turn off all sound, but then I would miss the relaxing water sounds. I would like this game a lot, but I would be much happier, and be inclined to continue playing it and making many more purchases and up my rating to five stars if the authors would incorporate a feature that allows the user to select which sounds they wish to hear while playing the game. Thank you for your consideration of my request, and for a visually beautiful game. C
Almost perfect
by Tank Stars! on 2020/03/30 04:43
This game is awesome, I just got it a few days ago and I love it, I get fun daily prizes, I get to costomize my pond, and I get to buy new koi fish! Everything about this game is fun, feeding and playing with my fish, cleaning the pond and winning things. One of my favorite things is that the prize wheel is not super unfair, of course you still get a few small prizes but your chance of winning SOMETHING is high. There is just a few things I wish were different. The first is the koins, for me it's pretty hard to get them I wish it would be a little bit easier to gain them. Another is the playing part, now I don't have to say anything too major but I just wanna say that after you maybe clean the filter and take care of you fish unless if you rich in koins there's not much left to do for a little while. For some people this is a good thing but, I think there should be some other things to do while you play. I know this isnt too much but it would make a huge difference! Now let me see the other side, from what I am aware of this game has NO ADS! That's pretty amazing for a game like this. Now for those of you who want to progress fast just remember, this game is for relaxation it needs patients to play😌.... Just remember that 😉 THANK YOU!!!!
Like flushing money down the toilet
by 18204 --影-- on 2019/08/01 16:07
I’m going to start by simply saying this: do not download this app. I had this app a few years ago and had a pretty big koi collection in at least 3 ponds. Now not only is all of that gone forever but there is no way for me to back up my current collection unless I pay for it. Most other apps will let you back up for free. It seems like this app is always trying to get you to pay for something, be it koins or credits or the ability to back up your game data. This is garbage. Plus, there is no way to connect the app to Facebook because it says that it’s in “development mode.” I think that the developers just abandoned this game and aren’t removing it from the App Store because it still makes money even in its current state. The reason I uninstalled the game in the first place is because it requires you to visit every day and keep the pond clean or else your fish die. I didn’t have that kind of time then and I don’t have that kind of time now, especially now that the app is even worse than it was before. I downloaded this app again for my daughter but I will be looking for something else now- a better, well maintained app that actually deserves my money. I will be uninstalling after I leave this review.
While it’s fun. It’s confusing and annoying
by Chris Isett on 2020/01/08 05:26
So the koi guide is basically useless. And you can’t connect anything to hang with friends so your stuck with the taunt of “do this with a friend and you get some free stuff”. Then the filters for the ponds barely stay clean despite them saying that they last a few days (upgraded). But they basically get dirtier at the same time if not faster then and the standard. The koin spin is rigged to where you will either get 0 or you’ll get 1. In the rare chance that you get more than that it will be just barely holding onto the peg that would let it give you ten. I rightfully won 10 koins but they said “faulty, spin again” Add onto the fact that the daily gifts give you a free koi (gets annoying after the first pond fills up and you can’t afford a new on or don’t want to have to clean double the filters). Or a dragonfly pack of around 12 that after a while you have too many to count. Even after that the dragonflies are there one moment. Then gonna the next. You don’t even tap them to kill them and they disappear. They took something that was supposed to be soothing. And turned it into a lottery (literally during the koin spin) or micro transactions filled annoyance
Almost there...
by babydragz on 2018/01/28 06:55
A ton of fun but please make this playable without having to spend a ton of money. That’s where it doesn’t remain fun anymore. Some of the filter upgrades and pond decor koin amount just doesn’t make sense. From premium filter costing 15 koin for 10 fish capacity to the next being ultra filter for 12 capacity costing 50 koins? It’s just two more fish? And the red rock costs double what the grey rock does? It doesn’t make sense to me. You might as well stick to breeding the low cost fish anyway because the actual benefits of breeding rare fish doesn’t surpass how much it costs to breed them. This would be such a successful and popular game if it was playable without having to rely on in app purchases. Otherwise everything like breeding takes a ridiculous amount of time and then I forget about the game completely. Also, in app backups are not working and I’m not able to visit my friends ponds nor can they visit mine. Please fix these issues, it would be so so worth it for your users.
I always come back.
by Rushed2Review on 2020/01/29 21:29
I downloaded this on my kindle fire a few years ago. To this day it’s my favorite fish ap. I do wish they would update the graphics and add more items to customize your pond with. The ap as a whole is pretty dead and there are no events except daily ones. Also to those of you complaining about money- there’s a really simple way to go about gaining koins. Focus on breeding two koi where one is at 0 and one is at 1 where it costs 0 koins to breed- or fish that breed for the amount of koins they sell for (so if it costs to breed them at 8 koins with the chance of either getting a fish that will sell for 8 or 11 koins- that’s a good bet).
I love it but only one problem...
by PicaGirl2 on 2019/03/12 03:03
Now, you see, this game is really interesting and fun, but I wish there was more than just getting fish and some other minor stuff. I think it would be cool if you could look at the genetics of your fish. Also, I don’t think it’s very realistic that you can just make your fish grow up with a few coins. There’s also one other issue. On the wheel game, you can hack it by placing your finger on the wheel, spinning four times, and letting go on the amount of koins you want. That has to be fixed. But I love the graphics and zen design of it all. Keep up the good work!
Fantastic game, you don’t HAVE to pay.
by Lazur vision on 2019/01/29 05:21
You CAN play this game without spending money, in fact it’s more fun this way. Start slow, work your way towards more ponds for breeding. Breeding the smaller cheaper Koi will make you more money if you find the right mix. I had 1-2 “rare” koi ponds I would breed just to see what I could get. The rest of my ponds were dedicated to breeding low cost fish for Koin. You can do less ponds for money because after a while it seems like a task. Overall a fantastic game. I’ve been playing it for a while now.
So realistic
by ellenoc on 2018/02/16 13:56
People need to know that the developer is no longer honoring the promised back ups, so don't spend your money expecting back ups. Apple should be fixing this because it is a form of fraud. A nice combination of art and gaming. The only thing I don't like is that if you can't continually play the game, your fish will die. This happened to my brother. He didn't have the coins to revive his favorite fish. He had some really nice ones. Mine almost died and I check every day. I don't think having the fish die is necessary. Jan 1, 2018 game doesn't seem to be allowing back ups anymore. Don't put your money into this expecting to back up. The vender seems to have abandoned support for that. It is an amazing app except for that.
Horrible. #1 was great
by somecrazynickname on 2019/06/27 17:00
Pocket Pond 2 will NOT let you just play it or play with it. Now you turn it on and the instructions go on and on and on and on and on. It is all about breeding the koi and decorating the pond. I used to LOVE this game for playing with children who were having a hard time sitting on the bus or waiting in a line with their parents. NO LONGER! You cannot just play this game! It is all about buying stuff and breeding koi to sell them, etc. And it is all about having to step through their instructions for 20 minutes or more and NEVER making it to just be able to play the game.
Good game,bad frog
by donn whoan on 2019/02/23 20:31
It is a very fun and relaxing game. I like my fish-lasertag and applesauce. I have one problem with it- the frog. I. Hate. The. Frog. When you click on it and it swims across the water there is no current of water rippling off it. There is nothing. It is so annoying and I can’t handle it. That is all.
PLEASE UPDATE GAME...
by Smokin... on 2017/09/26 00:56
The game is a lot of fun and I enjoy playing it. I've only made a couple of purchases and had no problems. THE GAME DEFINITELY NEEDS UPDATED TO KEEP UP WITH NEWER PHONES!!! There is problems when you purchase more than 1 lily pad for 1 tank, they overlap and then you can't have two frogs in 1 tank and since a lot of the extra points you get are for how many of (something) you put in 1 tank you kinda lose out there! "YEAH" Thank you so much for updating Pocket Pond 2! I'm so happy you did. I love this game! The fish and frogs are so realistic and it's just fun to go fishing. Thank you again, you made my day!😘
Unhappy customer
by IrishByker on 2018/04/28 23:18
After sending 2 emails to Tech Support with no response, I will give a BAD review. I never spend money on these apps but, having reached higher levels and finally collecting rare fish, I literally spent my birthday money to buy a bunch of coins (I’m 58, lol!). A few weeks ago, the app crashed for days. When I reinstalled, everything was gone, unable to restore anything.. I asked for the coins to be recredited to my pond but no one will even respond. That’s very poor customer service.
Koi nice job
by JKk D on 2019/12/02 19:44
I played original one and # two and zen one also 👍 ...... # 1 was great & # 2 lost few features 🙀👎... BUT still great .. The zen one some features missing also and is totally different layout you get free , frogs, bushes, flys, turtles, dragonfly's and more different koi koi and more KOI free lots of stuff 1 & 2 charged you for 👎 .. free in the zen koi ..

You can breed them sell them fatten them up and they gain value a lot of options 😎 ALL three by the same place ** tiggerWave LLC ** Good job, Thanks , John
Programmer Gone. Game is no longer maintained.
by LadyDocFL on 2018/01/18 16:58
The programmer that wrote this beautiful game has disappeared. The ability to visit other ponds no longer works. You can maintain your own pond but you can no longer gift or trade koi (fish) with anyone else. This used to be a fantastic game but without the programmer to maintain it, things are failing. This was written by a single programmer, not a company where someone else could take over. Find something else.
Facebook problem
by Cfjvfhb on 2019/01/17 22:50
Love this game but signing on to Facebook doesn’t work which is holding me back from doing some stuff on the game so I hope it can get fixed. Thank you
Good Game
by DragonaBrine on 2018/09/11 13:15
It’s fun to play and really peaceful but there’s one part that’s aggravating, it keeps telling me I can’t sign into Facebook and that the game is still in development mode when I try, I’d really like it if you fixed this (Will 5 star if fixed)
AMAZIN
by KTinCT on 2019/08/26 04:27
Pocket pond 1 and 2 were my games i played when i was about maybe 4? And i just got back into it and its just as good as i remembered! Love this game keep up the good work!
Log in
by GrandmaMandy on 2020/04/10 06:05
I just downloaded. Really enjoying my fish. I keep getting an unknown error when I try to log in to Facebook. I can’t find anything that explains how to make my fish happy.
Tutorial too long
by Jub9000 on 2019/12/26 15:39
I never even got to play the game because the stupid tutorial won’t go away until you finish it. What if I don’t want to do that? What if I already know how it works? I should be able to bypass the tutorial. This was a simple, fun app 10 years ago. Now it’s so complicated and monetized that it’s no longer fun.
KJ
by KoiJyl on 2020/01/17 23:04
What happened to the original pocket pond version the whole family including young children could enjoy? Just feeding, adding fish, frogs, dragonflies, fishing rod? Fishing for the largest one you could catch? This one is not what I want at all. I’ll be deleting it. Too complicated and time-consuming, with buying and no pond time!!😡
Love it but can’t connect to social
by Kottonkandy555 on 2019/02/23 17:34
So I love this game but when I try to connect to Facebook to get the social aspect of it, it tells me there is an error with the app and that I don’t have permission to connect.
Excellent!
by 9042671 on 2020/06/25 06:43
For many years it’s been one of a kind, most satisfying combination of natural beauty and technology. Many thanks to the creator!
Could you...
by frogpaw🌌🌌 on 2017/11/11 17:29
Could you make it so I can see the rest of my pond I'm stuck at the center and I can't see my fish most the time
Original was better
by Jrb333 on 2020/01/19 13:51
Had the original pocket pond. Loved it but developer stopped updating app. Found PP2 and thought it would be an improved version. Animations are nothing like original. Fish don’t look real like they used to. It being more of a game now wasn’t my cup of tea either.
Fun but...
by Sadone55 on 2018/03/13 19:58
But I’m unable to back up my ponds because it always says, that the operation has timed out. I haven’t been able to back up my ponds since October of last year. I will give it a higher rating when the function is fixed. ☹️
Facebook
by DanielX6010 on 2018/08/29 19:47
Can’t login to Facebook. Really trying to keep my game since I have put work into it and have rare fish, but I’m trying transfer them to my new phone so.. really expected more
No fun at all
by Pandora Q on 2019/09/02 18:21
I had the original pocket pond... that was great! This version never gets you to the point where you can just enjoy the app. One task after another, complicated, & I don’t know if I inadvertently bought stuff just trying to get to the pond. No fun at all.
This app is no longer supported
by wingz007 on 2018/03/05 13:34
Don’t spend a nickel on this apps features. The developer is no longer supporting the app. You’ll lose all your efforts. LOTS OF BUGS NOW, and you cannot backup to prevent loss of your efforts. Apple would be honest to remove it from store.
Good Game
by DragonaBrine on 2018/09/15 20:17
It’s a nice game but there’s a problem, I can’t log into Facebook it says it’s in development mode, I’ll 5 star when this is changed
Won’t back up

How to back up my pound
by doctor who who on 2020/07/07 21:06
I can’t back up my pond I bought coins and every time I try to back up my pound it says timed out
No Sound
by Zipcarperson on 2017/12/13 16:25
Paid to “unlock all ponds” but still no sound on SE. Water sound is essential!
Nothing works
by Kc032d on 2018/11/12 13:53
All I ever get is error messages. Social connection doesn’t work, back up doesn’t work. I spent money to back it up and it didn’t work. Don’t download this, it’s a waste of time.
Tutorial is the length of a novel
by DilRyeMaster on 2018/11/11 19:22
Just wanted a cute app for my cat to play with. This thing wanted me to get schooled on koi breeding and aquarium cleaning and diet before it’d let me do anything. My cat won’t be making any use of these features.
Frustrating!
by Siskread on 2018/08/12 19:43
I reloaded this because I enjoyed a long time ago... However the start screen wouldn't go away!
Going nowhere
by Lowriegirl on 2017/12/02 03:53
That middle label and all the buttons are stuck. No action. Have deleted and re-uploaded twice. Same problem.
Where’s the calming pond?
by loszi on 2019/08/25 22:17
Originally I had this and you just watched fish moving in a pond. So soothing. Now you have to do things till you’re a nervous wreck! I’m deleting this...
Don’t backup
by greeneyes81 on 2018/06/01 12:17
I can’t backup it said error all the time and already spend money for that, contacted costumer support and nothing.
Annoying

Mandatory tour makes it unusable
by flyinghatchet on 2018/03/31 01:24
Deleted before finishing the mandatory tour which is a waste of time for somebody who has used the app previously.
Back up
by Lunete1961 on 2019/10/10 14:38
This game requires in app purchase do a backup. Then the backup doesn’t work anyway. Disappointed.
No fun
by thanksful user on 2018/09/01 05:42
I want relax from it like in an old versions, but now it is a routine game where even learning into is extremely boring.
Absolute frustration
by Kittymum77 on 2018/01/06 07:04
Middle menu won’t hide and none of the buttons work. Brand new iPhone 8+
Worthless!!
by GeoJelly on 2018/10/06 22:42
No way to just see the pond with fish in it. Most menu buttons do NOT work. Absolutely worthless!!
Won’t start
by brdancer on 2017/10/20 19:23
There is a large label in the middle of the pond that won’t go away. I can’t use the app!
Does Not Work
by Jimt29 on 2019/03/10 03:33
3/9/19 The fish swim around, you can give them food. Menus don’t work. Sound effects work. Nothing else works. Dead center is an informational square that covers 70 % of the screen. It never goes away. It is not usable and from what I’ve read, never will be.
Does not work at all
by Jedijeff2000 on 2017/12/26 00:44
Initial help screen never goes away.
Not worth the time!
by johnl62556 on 2019/09/08 22:15
A large instruction panel was in the middle of the app. Wouldn’t go away.

Turn off the Birds Please
by 17Me1717 on 2020/07/24 08:59
Hi! I very much like this game. Lots to do, many activities to purchase, feed, play with and care for your Koi Pond (s). I bought this game for relaxation, and the fish and the water sounds do exactly that. My one problem is that the continuous high-pitched bird sounds give me a headache. There is no relaxing with all that screeching going on. So, yes, I could turn off all sound, but then I would miss the relaxing water sounds. I would like this game a lot, but I would be much happier, and be inclined to continue playing it and making many more purchases and up my rating to five stars if the authors would incorporate a feature that allows the user to select which sounds they wish to hear while playing the game. Thank you for your consideration of my request, and for a visually beautiful game. C
How to back up my pound
by doctor who who on 2020/07/07 21:06
I can’t back up my pond I bought coins and every time I try to back up my pound it says timed out
Excellent!
by 9042671 on 2020/06/25 06:43
For many years it’s been one of a kind, most satisfying combination of natural beauty and technology. Many thanks to the creator!

I just downloaded. Really enjoying my fish. I keep getting an unknown error when I try to log in to Facebook. I can’t find anything that explains how to make my fish happy.
Almost perfect
by Tank Stars! on 2020/03/30 04:43
This game is awesome, I just got it a few days ago and I love it, I get fun daily prizes, I get to costomize my pond, and I get to buy new koi fish! Everything about this game is fun, feeding and playing with my fish, cleaning the pond and winning things. One of my favorite things is that the prize wheel is not super unfair, of course you still get a few small prizes but your chance of winning SOMETHING is high. There is just a few things I wish were different. The first is the koins, for me it's pretty hard to get them I wish it would be a little bit easier to gain them. Another is the playing part, now I don't have to say anything too major but I just wanna say that after you maybe clean the filter and take care of you fish unless if you rich in koins there's not much left to do for a little while. For some people this is a good thing but, I think there should be some other things to do while you play. I know this isnt too much but it would make a huge difference! Now let me see the other side, from what I am aware of this game has NO ADS! That's pretty amazing for a game like this. Now for those of you who want to progress fast just remember, this game is for relaxation it needs patients to play😌.... Just remember that 😉 THANK YOU!!!!
I always come back.
by Rushed2Review on 2020/01/29 21:29
I downloaded this on my kindle fire a few years ago. To this day it’s my favorite fish ap. I do wish they would update the graphics and add more items to customize your pond with. The ap as a whole is pretty dead and there are no events except daily ones. Also to those of you complaining about money- there’s a really simple way to go about gaining koins. Focus on breeding two koi where one is at 0 and one is at 1 where it costs 0 koins to breed- or fish that breed for the amount of koins they sell for (so if it costs to breed them at 8 koins with the chance of either getting a fish that will sell for 8 or 11 koins- that’s a good bet).
Original was better
by Jrb333 on 2020/01/19 13:51
Had the original pocket pond. Loved it but developer stopped updating app. Found PP2 and thought it would be an improved version. Animations are nothing like original. Fish don’t look real like they used to. It being more of a game now wasn’t my cup of tea either.
KJ
by KoiJyl on 2020/01/17 23:04
What happened to the original pocket pond version the whole family including young children could enjoy? Just feeding, adding fish, frogs, dragonflies, fishing rod? Fishing for the largest one you could catch? This one is not what I want at all. I’ll be deleting it. Too complicated and time-consuming, with buying and no pond time!!😡
While it’s fun. It’s confusing and annoying
by Chris Isett on 2020/01/08 05:26
So the koi guide is basically useless. And you can’t connect anything to hang with friends so your stuck with the taunt of “do this with a friend and you get some free stuff”. Then the filters for the ponds barely stay clean despite them saying that they last a few days (upgraded). But they basically get dirtier at the same time if not faster then and the standard. The koin spin is rigged to where you will either get 0 or you’ll get 1. In the rare chance that you get more than that it will be just barely holding onto the peg that would let it give you ten. I rightfully won 10 koins but they said “faulty, spin again” Add onto the fact that the daily gifts give you a free koi (gets annoying after the first pond fills up and you can’t afford a new on or don’t want to have to clean double the filters). Or a dragonfly pack of around 12 that after a while you have too many to count. Even after that the dragonflies are there one moment. Then gonna the next. You don’t even tap them to kill them and they disappear. They took something that was supposed to be soothing. And turned it into a lottery (literally during the koin spin) or micro transactions filled annoyance
Tutorial too long
by Jub9000 on 2019/12/26 15:39
I never even got to play the game because the stupid tutorial won’t go away until you finish it. What if I don’t want to do that? What if I already know how it works? I should be able to bypass the tutorial. This was a simple, fun app 10 years ago. Now it’s so complicated and monetized that it’s no longer fun.
dis game cool
by Mydumbname on 2019/12/09 20:14
I love this game but i wish there was no limit to how many ponds u can have. And i rich in this game cuz i found a glitch were if u buy a less common koi, then go back to yesterday on the device clock, sell it, then u get 1000000 credits and koins or more i also wish u culd play minigames in it
Koi nice job
by JKk D on 2019/12/02 19:44
I played original one and # two and zen one also 👍 ...... # 1 was great & # 2 lost few features 🙀👎... BUT still great .. The zen one some features missing also and is totally different layout you get free , frogs, bushes, flys, turtles, dragonfly's and more different koi koi and more KOI free lots of stuff 1 & 2 charged you for 👎 .. free in the zen koi .. All & All they ALL have fantastic graphics bright colors koi do tricks go in circles nibble fingers .... You can breed them sell them fatten them up and they gain value a lot of options 😎 ALL three by the same place ** tiggerWave LLC ** Good job, Thanks , John
Back up
by Lunete1961 on 2019/10/10 14:38
This game requires in app purchase do a backup. Then the backup doesn’t work anyway. Disappointed.
Not worth the time!
by johnl62556 on 2019/09/08 22:15
A large instruction panel was in the middle of the app. Wouldn’t go away.
No fun at all
by Pandora Q on 2019/09/02 18:21
I had the original pocket pond... that was great! This version never gets you to the point where you can just enjoy the app. One task after another, complicated, & I don’t know if I inadvertently bought stuff just trying to get to the pond. No fun at all.
AMAZIN
by KTinCT on 2019/08/26 04:27
Pocket pond 1 and 2 were my games i played when i was about maybe 4? And i just got back into it and its just as good as i remembered! Love this game keep up the good work!
Where’s the calming pond?
by loszi on 2019/08/25 22:17
Originally I had this and you just watched fish moving in a pond. So soothing. Now you have to do things till you’re a nervous wreck! I’m deleting this...
What money do you have to spend?
by Moedude52 on 2019/08/25 19:42
Love this game. Have it on 3 iPads. Been playing for a month. Downloaded a long time ago. Played it once. Thought it was cute. About a month ago revisited my ponds all my fish were dead. No wonder if you don’t take of them they die. Revived them all. Caught some new ones and set up breeding ponds. In a month I’ve got 12 ponds on 2 iPads. I earn 100-150 coins a day on each iPad. No need to spend money. This game teaches entrepreneurship, patience and responsibility. For that it is a great game that teaches naturally. If something blows up and I lose it all. It’s a game. Start over and have a ball.
Like flushing money down the toilet
by 18204 --影-- on 2019/08/01 16:07
I’m going to start by simply saying this: do not download this app. I had this app a few years ago and had a pretty big koi collection in at least 3 ponds. Now not only is all of that gone forever but there is no way for me to back up my current collection unless I pay for it. Most other apps will let you back up for free. It seems like this app is always trying to get you to pay for something, be it koins or credits or the ability to back up your game data. This is garbage. Plus, there is no way to connect the app to Facebook because it says that it’s in “development mode.” I think that the developers just abandoned this game and aren’t removing it from the App Store because it still makes money even in its current state. The reason I uninstalled the game in the first place is because it requires you to visit every day and keep the pond clean or else your fish die. I didn’t have that kind of time then and I don’t have that kind of time now, especially now that the app is even worse than it was before. I downloaded this app again for my daughter but I will be looking for something else now- a better, well maintained app that actually deserves my money. I will be uninstalling after I leave this review.
Horrible. #1 was great
by somecrazynickname on 2019/06/27 17:00
Pocket Pond 2 will NOT let you just play it or play with it. Now you turn it on and the instructions go on and on and on and on and on. It is all about breeding the koi and decorating the pond. I used to LOVE this game for playing with children who were having a hard time sitting on the bus or waiting in a line with their parents. NO LONGER! You cannot just play this game! It is all about buying stuff and breeding koi to sell them, etc. And it is all about having to step through their instructions for 20 minutes or more and NEVER making it to just be able to play the game.
Garbage! Apple remove!!

I love it but only one problem...
by PicaGirl2 on 2019/03/12 03:03
Now, you see, this game is really interesting and fun, but I wish there was more than just getting fish and some other minor stuff. I think it would be cool if you could look at the genetics of your fish. Also, I don’t think it’s very realistic that you can just make your fish grow up with a few coins. There’s also one other issue. On the wheel game, you can hack it by placing your finger on the wheel, spinning four times, and letting go on the amount of koins you want. That has to be fixed. But I love the graphics and zen design of it all. Keep up the good work!
Does Not Work
by Jimt29 on 2019/03/10 03:33
3/9/19 The fish swim around, you can give them food. Menus don’t work. Sound effects work. Nothing else works. Dead center is an informational square that covers 70 % of the screen. It never goes away. It is not usable and from what I’ve read, never will be.
ECGil
by ECGIL on 2019/03/01 15:30
This is a ton of fun! The trick is to breed what fish you have in order to gain koins and credit and get more valuable fish. It is very beneficial to master the foil in order to gain seven koins. One very big drawback for this app is that it does not play as well on Apple products as it does on android products. You do not get any of the sound effects and vibrations on Apple. My LG G5 phone is a ton of fun.
Good game,bad frog
by donn whoan on 2019/02/23 20:31
It is a very fun and relaxing game. I like my fish-lasertag and applesauce. I have one problem with it- the frog. I. Hate. The. Frog. When you click on it and it swims across the water there is no current of water rippling off it. There is nothing. It is so annoying and I can’t handle it. That is all.
Love it but can’t connect to social
by Kottonkandy555 on 2019/02/23 17:34
So I love this game but when I try to connect to Facebook to get the social aspect of it, it tells me there is an error with the app and that I don’t have permission to connect.
Fantastic game, you don’t HAVE to pay.
by Lazur vision on 2019/01/29 05:21
You CAN play this game without spending money, in fact it’s more fun this way. Start slow, work your way towards more ponds for breeding. Breeding the smaller cheaper Koi will make you more money if you find the right mix. I had 1-2 “rare” koi ponds I would breed just to see what I could get. The rest of my ponds were dedicated to breeding low cost fish for Koin. You can do less ponds for money because after a while it seems like a task. Overall a fantastic game. I’ve been playing it for a while now.
Facebook problem
by Cfjvfhb on 2019/01/17 22:50
Love this game but signing on to Facebook doesn’t work which is holding me back from doing some stuff on the game so I hope it can get fixed. Thank you
Nothing works
by Kc032d on 2018/11/12 13:53
All I ever get is error messages. Social connection doesn’t work, back up doesn’t work. I spent money to back it up and it didn’t work. Don’t download this, it’s a waste of time.
Tutorial is the length of a novel
by DilRyeMaster on 2018/11/11 19:22
Just wanted a cute app for my cat to play with. This thing wanted me to get schooled on koi breeding and aquarium cleaning and diet before it’d let me do anything. My cat won’t be making any use of these features.
Worthless!!
by GeoJelly on 2018/10/06 22:42
No way to just see the pond with fish in it. Most menu buttons do NOT work. Absolutely worthless!!

It’s a nice game but there’s a problem, I can’t log into Facebook it says it’s in development mode, I’ll 5 star when this is changed
Good Game
by DragonaBrine on 2018/09/11 13:15
It’s fun to play and really peaceful but there’s one part that’s aggravating, it keeps telling me I can’t sign into Facebook and that the game is still in development mode when I try, I’d really like it if you fixed this (Will 5 star if fixed)
No fun
by thanksful user on 2018/09/01 05:42
I want relax from it like in an old versions, but now it is a routine game where even learning into is extremely boring.
Facebook
by DanielX6010 on 2018/08/29 19:47
Can’t login to Facebook. Really trying to keep my game since I have put work into it and have rare fish, but I’m trying transfer them to my new phone so.. really expected more
Frustrating!

I reloaded this because I enjoyed a long time ago... However the start screen wouldn't go away!

Don’t backup
by greeneyes81 on 2018/06/01 12:17
I can’t backup it said error all the time and already spend money for that, contacted costumer support and nothing.
Unhappy customer
by IrishByker on 2018/04/28 23:18
After sending 2 emails to Tech Support with no response, I will give a BAD review. I never spend money on these apps but, having reached higher levels and finally collecting rare fish, I literally spent my birthday money to buy a bunch of coins (I’m 58, lol!). A few weeks ago, the app crashed for days. When I reinstalled, everything was gone, unable to restore anything.. I asked for the coins to be recredited to my pond but no one will even respond. That’s very poor customer service.
Old version!
by Gramigram65 on 2018/04/22 03:39
Your old version way perfect! Moms loved it! Kept babies focussed! I would gladly pay for the old version. No feeding! Just sound! Thanks!
Mandatory tour makes it unusable
by flyinghatchet on 2018/03/31 01:24
Deleted before finishing the mandatory tour which is a waste of time for somebody who has used the app previously.
Developers word is meaningless. Backup unavailable
by Isaac Hare on 2018/03/17 17:12
Spent over $100.00 on this game and backups worked great until 2018. I would like a refund due to fraud for being promised backups. I thought it was weird keeping this pond but whatever I wasted 4 years.
Fun but...
by Sadone55 on 2018/03/13 19:58
But I’m unable to back up my ponds because it always says, that the operation has timed out. I haven’t been able to back up my ponds since October of last year. I will give it a higher rating when the function is fixed. ☹️
This app is no longer supported
by wingz007 on 2018/03/05 13:34
Don’t spend a nickel on this apps features. The developer is no longer supporting the app. You’ll lose all your efforts. LOTS OF BUGS NOW, and you cannot backup to prevent loss of your efforts. Apple would be honest to remove it from store.

So realistic
by ellenoc on 2018/02/16 13:56
People need to know that the developer is no longer honoring the promised back ups, so don't spend your money expecting back ups. Apple should be fixing this because it is a form of fraud. A nice combination of art and gaming. The only thing I don't like is that if you can't continually play the game, your fish will die. This happened to my brother. He didn't have the coins to revive his favorite fish. He had some really nice ones. Mine almost died and I check every day. I don't think having the fish die is necessary. Jan 1, 2018 game doesn't seem to be allowing back ups anymore. Don't put your money into this expecting to back up. The vender seems to have abandoned support for that. It is an amazing app except for that.
Almost there...
by babydragz on 2018/01/28 06:55
A ton of fun but please make this playable without having to spend a ton of money. That’s where it doesn’t remain fun anymore. Some of the filter upgrades and pond decor koin amount just doesn’t make sense. From premium filter costing 15 koin for 10 fish capacity to the next being ultra filter for 12 capacity costing 50 koins? It’s just two more fish? And the red rock costs double what the grey rock does? It doesn’t make sense to me. You might as well stick to breeding the low cost fish anyway because the actual benefits of breeding rare fish doesn’t surpass how much it costs to breed them. This would be such a successful and popular game if it was playable without having to rely on in app purchases. Otherwise everything like breeding takes a ridiculous amount of time and then I forget about the game completely. Also, in app backups are not working and I’m not able to visit my friends ponds nor can they visit mine. Please fix these issues, it would be so so worth it for your users.
BEST GAME EVER

Programmer Gone. Game is no longer maintained.
by LadyDocFL on 2018/01/18 16:58
The programmer that wrote this beautiful game has disappeared. The ability to visit other ponds no longer works. You can maintain your own pond but you can no longer gift or trade koi (fish) with anyone else. This used to be a fantastic game but without the programmer to maintain it, things are failing. This was written by a single programmer, not a company where someone else could take over. Find something else.

PLEASE UPDATE GAME...
by Smokin... on 2017/09/26 00:56
The game is a lot of fun and I enjoy playing it. I've only made a couple of purchases and had no problems. THE GAME DEFINITELY NEEDS UPDATED TO KEEP UP WITH NEWER PHONES!!! There is problems when you purchase more than 1 lily pad for 1 tank, they overlap and then you can't have two frogs in 1 tank and since a lot of the extra points you get are for how many of (something) you put in 1 tank you kinda lose out there! "YEAH" Thank you so much for updating Pocket Pond 2! I'm so happy you did. I love this game! The fish and frogs are so realistic and it's just fun to go fishing. Thank you again, you made my day!😘
It KILLED my FISH!!!
by KLovil on 2017/08/29 20:25
I'm sorry, but killing off the fish because I HAVE to live my REAL life just isn't right. Then I'm supposed to pay to revive them? I thought this was supposed to be a RELAXING game. But it's VERY upsetting to find them DEAD! And there is no way to earn enough coins to initially build up the basics without spending ACTUAL money. Please! The first Pocket Ponds is SO much better about that. AND I think the fish look a HECK of a lot more realistic. I gotta delete this. It's just too upsetting.

Almost perfect - Ambience sounds don't work
by Danissuperawesome on 2017/08/13 14:06
I love this, but I'd use it much more often if the sounds I purchased worked. The other sounds work like when you tap the water the splash sound works but I don't get to hear the sounds of the birds or the water like the forest sounds or the tropical birds. My phone's volume is way up, and my phone's mute button is off - It tells me to be sure these things are in the correct position, and there are no internal settings that I can find to control sounds within the game. Frustrating and makes the whole thing fall flat. I purchased this more as a Zen / relaxing outlet but without the ambience sounds I am very disappointed. If that worked I'd probably give it 5 stars.
Rating of you new game.... If I can Even give it a 1!!!!!'
by Gamer 5642 *24-7* on 2017/07/30 12:45
Do not download this game. If you do not spend money you really can not advance.. This game was cool but now there just money hungry!
Social doesn't work
by N8_1231 on 2017/07/29 14:29
I guess the app hasn't been touched by the developer for 2 years, but it would be nice if the social aspect was either fixed or removed. My fiancé and I love this game but we can't visit each other's ponds, which was half the reason we installed.
O.K.
by Alpacalips!! on 2017/07/11 14:26
This is a good calm relaxing game, but not when all your fish are dead! I went on vacation for only two days and I came back and all my fish were dead. I don't know what to do other than convincing my mom to get a coin packet! 🙂🙁
Meh
by Kiyamima on 2017/06/24 05:04
Has the potential as it is a solid idea but failed in execution. The creators don't even give you a feasible way to earn Koins so it makes the game/app useless because even if you buy a certain number of Koins it is never enough to get anything really started.
Great Game, Really Fun
by DragonflyStar on 2017/06/11 15:56
I personally really enjoy this app. I love how new koi can have any combination of their parent's colors and how each species is a classified rarity. To me the game is pretty complicated and there must've been a lot of work to make it, and yet it feels so simple and relaxing to play. The only suggestions I have for the game's developers would be to make the pond decorations a little cheaper.
Used to be better
by ArtSage7 on 2017/05/30 16:50
It used to be better. Now you gotta pay for everything and the ambience sounds don't work. I like how iFish Pond used to be. They don't even respond to their support email...
What happened
by Amycas on 2017/05/16 02:01
This used to be a fun little app. I updated and now it's like a complex game. There are so many instructions that you never actually get to play with the fish. It also used to be fun for my daughter but now, since she can't read yet, she can't even play it. Why do you need so many instructions to play with koi!?
Anyone else have a problem with this?
by GazGrrl on 2017/04/24 14:32
I am unable to use any of the Ambiances that I have purchased. I also cannot preview any of them before purchase. And, why no update for the new OS?
Made me very sad
by Mars rover engineer on 2017/04/24 02:53
I didn't like this app because I worked so hard. and l didn't play for a few days and when l came back, my fish were dead!😢 l couldn't revive my fishes because l didn't have enough koins.l think you shouldn't have to pay for everything. -S., age 8

Great Game!
by Owen Jensen on 2017/04/13 18:59
I really enjoy playing this game. It is a very fun real time fish breeding game. However it needs an update. I recently got a 9.7" iPad Pro to replace my 2nd generation iPad and this app is not completely compatible with iPad Pro and iOS 10. It says it can slow down my iPad. Please update this app to be compatible with my iPad.
Kids love it
by Rrpdq on 2017/04/08 12:45
I work with special needs kids who love to play with and feed the fish. It is a way for them to play in the water without getting wet. Please update this app for future iOS updates.

Just recently they JACKED THE PRICES OF COINS UP BIG TIME. I have had this game and played it daily for 3 months. Now the prices of the coins you need to buy and breed Koi get jacked up by over 100%. A fun game that has now become too pricey. RIP OFF ALERT. $$$$$$$$$
Relaxing
by htefft2 on 2017/04/05 10:06
This is a beautiful & relaxing app. I play daily but my iPhone keeps telling me that if the developers don't update this app will become obsolete. Please update! Thank you.
Need to update
by Annoyed in AZ1234 on 2017/04/01 14:51
You guys need to update this app or will be able to be used.
Bring back original pocket pond
by Outthebox on 2017/03/17 16:23
Please bring back the original pocket pond. It was my sons goto app when he needed to relax and it's great for eye tracking for special needs kids.
Terrible!
by TheDavidWD on 2017/03/01 03:33
Right from the start, the app was more trouble that I expected. The initial "set up" was complicated (to get out of one screen we had to rename a fish ???), the icons on the screen were unresponsive and the app seemed to lock up several times (on an iPad). Too bad it was unlike the original version of "pocket pond"!
Ambiance
by Bgkkmb on 2017/02/27 14:53
WHY DOESN'T THE AMBIANCE WORK????? SO FRUSTRATING!!!!
So sad
by JWolck on 2017/02/18 21:45
It is with great sadness that I need to remove this app from my iPad. I have played it for years, despite my no longer seeing the progress bar move. I now get a message saying that it will slow down my iPad since the developers have not updated it.
It's gotten boring after a while
by Pokelover#1 on 2017/02/15 02:44
I used to really like this game and it used to be interesting getting a new fish every once in a while but I wish u could add some magical breeds like ones with whiskers and wings and stuff and also more animals please because it does not seem like enough any more and could u also add something the dragonflies can land on so they don't get eaten by the frog, otherwise very nice work!
Very unrealistic
by sunspotsbonaire on 2017/01/10 17:10
Disappointing animation. Fish seem limited to screen size and do not go out of frame. Not interesting at all
NO SOUND
by lstpzlpc on 2017/01/08 03:47
I have sound in the app on my ipro tablet, but not on my iphone 7s plus ???
Help
by Ahdownsianzosnaoxns on 2017/01/08 02:14
I just downloaded this app and there is a annoying message on the screen that won't go away!
So Calming...... Feel Zen...
by QuillKayla on 2016/12/27 03:39
I love this game. It is so fun to take care of the little fish that swim around in your pond. There aren't barely any in app purchases and I like the fish varieties. The fish are so colorful, and I like to go fishing for a surprise fish! It is so fun, because you never know what you are going to get until you pull it out of the water. So, if you are thinking about getting this game, think no more... DOWNLOAD NOW!!!!!
Make tutorial skip able
by meno1 on 2016/12/23 02:00
The original was great, quick fun. But it stopped working so I tried this Complicated and annoying sequel, disappointing.
Something's wrong
by Cobra Commandress on 2016/12/20 17:17
Today I played this app and later I opened it and the whole screen was white. Please fix this
Great Game
by chulisha on 2016/12/17 21:20
This is a great game that helps you if you need to be more responsible. Taking care of a pet takes work and multiple more. Nice work
Needs update
by YourName123456 on 2016/12/12 19:59
I immensely enjoy this app but it needs an update or it's getting deleted. Fix bugs as per other reviews.
Why does a pond game require multiple currencies?
by Nottakenstopmakingmerewrite on 2016/11/23 04:29
Why any currency at all? I downloaded this for my cat...do people even want to clean their real fish filters? That is not fun. Two of three fish in my pond are frozen in a stationary position. Maybe I have to buy fish movements? This "game" is a joke.
Love & HATE
by LilLRJ on 2016/11/09 04:58
I loved this game until I found out it doesn't transfer my pond to my new phone!!!!! I hate it!!!!! I hope that they will change it. Otherwise I have to stop playing this game as I can't always play the game on my old phone. I love my fishes, but I can't get them back on my new phone!!!!!
Needs an update
by Cindisuef on 2016/11/06 16:46
The developer really need to may a little attention to this app. It really needs an update. If you don't have much room in your phones memory I would steer clear of this one until they update it. It will really slow your phone down.
Facebook doesn't work
by RedPanda360 on 2016/10/23 21:26
Every time I try to sign in to facebook it opens minecraft and says it's unknown error can you fix it if you can the game would be pretty good
Relaxing but boring after a while
by Versia A. on 2016/10/15 15:30
I love the game and all the different colors you can get but if y'all could add a bit more complex breeding like lineages so koi could display traits from further back that would be cool. Maybe add different kinds of koi as well? :) otherwise it's a good casual game.
Love my Pocket Pond II
by Photogalster on 2016/10/14 23:29
Something happened with the new update to IOS 10, lost the ambience sound. Still love it.
Turn off the Birds Please
by 17Me1717 on 2020/07/24 08:59
Hi! I very much like this game. Lots to do, many activities to purchase, feed, play with and care for your Koi Pond (s). I bought this game for relaxation, and the fish and the water sounds do exactly that. My one problem is that the continuous high-pitched bird sounds give me a headache. There is no relaxing with all that screeching going on. So, yes, I could turn off all sound, but then I would miss the relaxing water sounds. I would like this game a lot, but I would be much happier, and be inclined to continue playing it and making many more purchases and up my rating to five stars if the authors would incorporate a feature that allows the user to select which sounds they wish to hear while playing the game. Thank you for your consideration of my request, and for a visually beautiful game. C
Almost perfect
by Tank Stars! on 2020/03/30 04:43
This game is awesome, I just got it a few days ago and I love it, I get fun daily prizes, I get to costomize my pond, and I get to buy new koi fish! Everything about this game is fun, feeding and playing with my fish, cleaning the pond and winning things. One of my favorite things is that the prize wheel is not super unfair, of course you still get a few small prizes but your chance of winning SOMETHING is high. There is just a few things I wish were different. The first is the koins, for me it's pretty hard to get them I wish it would be a little bit easier to gain them. Another is the playing part, now I don't have to say anything too major but I just wanna say that after you maybe clean the filter and take care of you fish unless if you rich in koins there's not much left to do for a little while. For some people this is a good thing but, I think there should be some other things to do while you play. I know this isnt too much but it would make a huge difference! Now let me see the other side, from what I am aware of this game has NO ADS! That's pretty amazing for a game like this. Now for those of you who want to progress fast just remember, this game is for relaxation it needs patients to play😌.... Just remember that 😉 THANK YOU!!!!
Like flushing money down the toilet
by 18204 --影-- on 2019/08/01 16:07
I’m going to start by simply saying this: do not download this app. I had this app a few years ago and had a pretty big koi collection in at least 3 ponds. Now not only is all of that gone forever but there is no way for me to back up my current collection unless I pay for it. Most other apps will let you back up for free. It seems like this app is always trying to get you to pay for something, be it koins or credits or the ability to back up your game data. This is garbage. Plus, there is no way to connect the app to Facebook because it says that it’s in “development mode.” I think that the developers just abandoned this game and aren’t removing it from the App Store because it still makes money even in its current state. The reason I uninstalled the game in the first place is because it requires you to visit every day and keep the pond clean or else your fish die. I didn’t have that kind of time then and I don’t have that kind of time now, especially now that the app is even worse than it was before. I downloaded this app again for my daughter but I will be looking for something else now- a better, well maintained app that actually deserves my money. I will be uninstalling after I leave this review.
While it’s fun. It’s confusing and annoying
by Chris Isett on 2020/01/08 05:26
So the koi guide is basically useless. And you can’t connect anything to hang with friends so your stuck with the taunt of “do this with a friend and you get some free stuff”. Then the filters for the ponds barely stay clean despite them saying that they last a few days (upgraded). But they basically get dirtier at the same time if not faster then and the standard. The koin spin is rigged to where you will either get 0 or you’ll get 1. In the rare chance that you get more than that it will be just barely holding onto the peg that would let it give you ten. I rightfully won 10 koins but they said “faulty, spin again” Add onto the fact that the daily gifts give you a free koi (gets annoying after the first pond fills up and you can’t afford a new on or don’t want to have to clean double the filters). Or a dragonfly pack of around 12 that after a while you have too many to count. Even after that the dragonflies are there one moment. Then gonna the next. You don’t even tap them to kill them and they disappear. They took something that was supposed to be soothing. And turned it into a lottery (literally during the koin spin) or micro transactions filled annoyance
Almost there...
by babydragz on 2018/01/28 06:55
A ton of fun but please make this playable without having to spend a ton of money. That’s where it doesn’t remain fun anymore. Some of the filter upgrades and pond decor koin amount just doesn’t make sense. From premium filter costing 15 koin for 10 fish capacity to the next being ultra filter for 12 capacity costing 50 koins? It’s just two more fish? And the red rock costs double what the grey rock does? It doesn’t make sense to me. You might as well stick to breeding the low cost fish anyway because the actual benefits of breeding rare fish doesn’t surpass how much it costs to breed them. This would be such a successful and popular game if it was playable without having to rely on in app purchases. Otherwise everything like breeding takes a ridiculous amount of time and then I forget about the game completely. Also, in app backups are not working and I’m not able to visit my friends ponds nor can they visit mine. Please fix these issues, it would be so so worth it for your users.
I always come back.
by Rushed2Review on 2020/01/29 21:29
I downloaded this on my kindle fire a few years ago. To this day it’s my favorite fish ap. I do wish they would update the graphics and add more items to customize your pond with. The ap as a whole is pretty dead and there are no events except daily ones. Also to those of you complaining about money- there’s a really simple way to go about gaining koins. Focus on breeding two koi where one is at 0 and one is at 1 where it costs 0 koins to breed- or fish that breed for the amount of koins they sell for (so if it costs to breed them at 8 koins with the chance of either getting a fish that will sell for 8 or 11 koins- that’s a good bet).
I love it but only one problem...
by PicaGirl2 on 2019/03/12 03:03
Now, you see, this game is really interesting and fun, but I wish there was more than just getting fish and some other minor stuff. I think it would be cool if you could look at the genetics of your fish. Also, I don’t think it’s very realistic that you can just make your fish grow up with a few coins. There’s also one other issue. On the wheel game, you can hack it by placing your finger on the wheel, spinning four times, and letting go on the amount of koins you want. That has to be fixed. But I love the graphics and zen design of it all. Keep up the good work!
Fantastic game, you don’t HAVE to pay.
by Lazur vision on 2019/01/29 05:21
You CAN play this game without spending money, in fact it’s more fun this way. Start slow, work your way towards more ponds for breeding. Breeding the smaller cheaper Koi will make you more money if you find the right mix. I had 1-2 “rare” koi ponds I would breed just to see what I could get. The rest of my ponds were dedicated to breeding low cost fish for Koin. You can do less ponds for money because after a while it seems like a task. Overall a fantastic game. I’ve been playing it for a while now.
So realistic
by ellenoc on 2018/02/16 13:56
People need to know that the developer is no longer honoring the promised back ups, so don't spend your money expecting back ups. Apple should be fixing this because it is a form of fraud. A nice combination of art and gaming. The only thing I don't like is that if you can't continually play the game, your fish will die. This happened to my brother. He didn't have the coins to revive his favorite fish. He had some really nice ones. Mine almost died and I check every day. I don't think having the fish die is necessary. Jan 1, 2018 game doesn't seem to be allowing back ups anymore. Don't put your money into this expecting to back up. The vender seems to have abandoned support for that. It is an amazing app except for that.
Horrible. #1 was great
by somecrazynickname on 2019/06/27 17:00
Pocket Pond 2 will NOT let you just play it or play with it. Now you turn it on and the instructions go on and on and on and on and on. It is all about breeding the koi and decorating the pond. I used to LOVE this game for playing with children who were having a hard time sitting on the bus or waiting in a line with their parents. NO LONGER! You cannot just play this game! It is all about buying stuff and breeding koi to sell them, etc. And it is all about having to step through their instructions for 20 minutes or more and NEVER making it to just be able to play the game.
Good game,bad frog
by donn whoan on 2019/02/23 20:31
It is a very fun and relaxing game. I like my fish-lasertag and applesauce. I have one problem with it- the frog. I. Hate. The. Frog. When you click on it and it swims across the water there is no current of water rippling off it. There is nothing. It is so annoying and I can’t handle it. That is all.
PLEASE UPDATE GAME...
by Smokin... on 2017/09/26 00:56
The game is a lot of fun and I enjoy playing it. I've only made a couple of purchases and had no problems. THE GAME DEFINITELY NEEDS UPDATED TO KEEP UP WITH NEWER PHONES!!! There is problems when you purchase more than 1 lily pad for 1 tank, they overlap and then you can't have two frogs in 1 tank and since a lot of the extra points you get are for how many of (something) you put in 1 tank you kinda lose out there! "YEAH" Thank you so much for updating Pocket Pond 2! I'm so happy you did. I love this game! The fish and frogs are so realistic and it's just fun to go fishing. Thank you again, you made my day!😘
Unhappy customer
by IrishByker on 2018/04/28 23:18
After sending 2 emails to Tech Support with no response, I will give a BAD review. I never spend money on these apps but, having reached higher levels and finally collecting rare fish, I literally spent my birthday money to buy a bunch of coins (I’m 58, lol!). A few weeks ago, the app crashed for days. When I reinstalled, everything was gone, unable to restore anything.. I asked for the coins to be recredited to my pond but no one will even respond. That’s very poor customer service.
Koi nice job
by JKk D on 2019/12/02 19:44

You can breed them sell them fatten them up and they gain value a lot of options 😎 ALL three by the same place ** tiggerWave LLC ** Good job, Thanks , John
Programmer Gone. Game is no longer maintained.
by LadyDocFL on 2018/01/18 16:58
The programmer that wrote this beautiful game has disappeared. The ability to visit other ponds no longer works. You can maintain your own pond but you can no longer gift or trade koi (fish) with anyone else. This used to be a fantastic game but without the programmer to maintain it, things are failing. This was written by a single programmer, not a company where someone else could take over. Find something else.
Facebook problem
by Cfjvfhb on 2019/01/17 22:50
Love this game but signing on to Facebook doesn’t work which is holding me back from doing some stuff on the game so I hope it can get fixed. Thank you
Good Game
by DragonaBrine on 2018/09/11 13:15
It’s fun to play and really peaceful but there’s one part that’s aggravating, it keeps telling me I can’t sign into Facebook and that the game is still in development mode when I try, I’d really like it if you fixed this (Will 5 star if fixed)
AMAZIN
by KTinCT on 2019/08/26 04:27
Pocket pond 1 and 2 were my games i played when i was about maybe 4? And i just got back into it and its just as good as i remembered! Love this game keep up the good work!
Log in
by GrandmaMandy on 2020/04/10 06:05
I just downloaded. Really enjoying my fish. I keep getting an unknown error when I try to log in to Facebook. I can’t find anything that explains how to make my fish happy.
Tutorial too long
by Jub9000 on 2019/12/26 15:39
I never even got to play the game because the stupid tutorial won’t go away until you finish it. What if I don’t want to do that? What if I already know how it works? I should be able to bypass the tutorial. This was a simple, fun app 10 years ago. Now it’s so complicated and monetized that it’s no longer fun.
KJ
by KoiJyl on 2020/01/17 23:04
What happened to the original pocket pond version the whole family including young children could enjoy? Just feeding, adding fish, frogs, dragonflies, fishing rod? Fishing for the largest one you could catch? This one is not what I want at all. I’ll be deleting it. Too complicated and time-consuming, with buying and no pond time!!😡
Love it but can’t connect to social
by Kottonkandy555 on 2019/02/23 17:34
So I love this game but when I try to connect to Facebook to get the social aspect of it, it tells me there is an error with the app and that I don’t have permission to connect.
Excellent!
by 9042671 on 2020/06/25 06:43
For many years it’s been one of a kind, most satisfying combination of natural beauty and technology. Many thanks to the creator!
Could you...
by frogpaw🌌🌌 on 2017/11/11 17:29
Could you make it so I can see the rest of my pond I'm stuck at the center and I can't see my fish most the time
Original was better
by Jrb333 on 2020/01/19 13:51
Had the original pocket pond. Loved it but developer stopped updating app. Found PP2 and thought it would be an improved version. Animations are nothing like original. Fish don’t look real like they used to. It being more of a game now wasn’t my cup of tea either.
Fun but...
by Sadone55 on 2018/03/13 19:58
But I’m unable to back up my ponds because it always says, that the operation has timed out. I haven’t been able to back up my ponds since October of last year. I will give it a higher rating when the function is fixed. ☹️
Facebook
by DanielX6010 on 2018/08/29 19:47
Can’t login to Facebook. Really trying to keep my game since I have put work into it and have rare fish, but I’m trying transfer them to my new phone so.. really expected more
No fun at all
by Pandora Q on 2019/09/02 18:21
I had the original pocket pond... that was great! This version never gets you to the point where you can just enjoy the app. One task after another, complicated, & I don’t know if I inadvertently bought stuff just trying to get to the pond. No fun at all.
This app is no longer supported
by wingz007 on 2018/03/05 13:34
Don’t spend a nickel on this apps features. The developer is no longer supporting the app. You’ll lose all your efforts. LOTS OF BUGS NOW, and you cannot backup to prevent loss of your efforts. Apple would be honest to remove it from store.
Good Game
by DragonaBrine on 2018/09/15 20:17
It’s a nice game but there’s a problem, I can’t log into Facebook it says it’s in development mode, I’ll 5 star when this is changed
Won’t back up

How to back up my pound

No Sound
by Zipcarperson on 2017/12/13 16:25
Paid to “unlock all ponds” but still no sound on SE. Water sound is essential!
Nothing works
by Kc032d on 2018/11/12 13:53
All I ever get is error messages. Social connection doesn’t work, back up doesn’t work. I spent money to back it up and it didn’t work. Don’t download this, it’s a waste of time.
Tutorial is the length of a novel
by DilRyeMaster on 2018/11/11 19:22
Just wanted a cute app for my cat to play with. This thing wanted me to get schooled on koi breeding and aquarium cleaning and diet before it’d let me do anything. My cat won’t be making any use of these features.
Frustrating!
by Siskread on 2018/08/12 19:43
I reloaded this because I enjoyed a long time ago... However the start screen wouldn't go away!
Going nowhere
by Lowriegirl on 2017/12/02 03:53
That middle label and all the buttons are stuck. No action. Have deleted and re-uploaded twice. Same problem.
Where’s the calming pond?
by loszi on 2019/08/25 22:17
Originally I had this and you just watched fish moving in a pond. So soothing. Now you have to do things till you’re a nervous wreck! I’m deleting this...
Don’t backup
by greeneyes81 on 2018/06/01 12:17
I can’t backup it said error all the time and already spend money for that, contacted costumer support and nothing.
Annoying

Mandatory tour makes it unusable
by flyinghatchet on 2018/03/31 01:24
Deleted before finishing the mandatory tour which is a waste of time for somebody who has used the app previously.
Back up
by Lunete1961 on 2019/10/10 14:38
This game requires in app purchase do a backup. Then the backup doesn’t work anyway. Disappointed.
No fun
by thanksful user on 2018/09/01 05:42
I want relax from it like in an old versions, but now it is a routine game where even learning into is extremely boring.
Absolute frustration
by Kittymum77 on 2018/01/06 07:04
Middle menu won’t hide and none of the buttons work. Brand new iPhone 8+
Worthless!!
by GeoJelly on 2018/10/06 22:42
No way to just see the pond with fish in it. Most menu buttons do NOT work. Absolutely worthless!!
Won’t start
by brdancer on 2017/10/20 19:23
There is a large label in the middle of the pond that won’t go away. I can’t use the app!
Does Not Work
by Jimt29 on 2019/03/10 03:33
3/9/19 The fish swim around, you can give them food. Menus don’t work. Sound effects work. Nothing else works. Dead center is an informational square that covers 70 % of the screen. It never goes away. It is not usable and from what I’ve read, never will be.
Does not work at all
by Jedijeff2000 on 2017/12/26 00:44
Initial help screen never goes away.
Not worth the time!
by johnl62556 on 2019/09/08 22:15
A large instruction panel was in the middle of the app. Wouldn’t go away.
