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.

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!!
Annoying

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
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.
by AHPalomita on 2018/06/16 22:58
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
by richie.finn.mike on inst on 2018/01/20 14:05
such an awesome game and a great boredom breaker!! Love it! Five stars!!💞
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.
Absolute frustration

WHAT’S GOING ON???
by RayBuf on 2017/12/27 02:34
I haven’t been able to backup since December 17th. I just tried the “delete and restore” and my restore code suddenly won’t work. I’ve sent an email to support but haven’t gotten any response.
Does not work at all

Initial help screen never goes away.
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!
Not relaxing
by KeNGirl9 on 2017/12/07 18:34
The fish die easily, so if you were looking for something to relax to, I suggest Pocket Frogs.
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.
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
Label

There is a large label that won’t go away. Menus do not appear to work.

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

by Kate_332 on 2017/04/22 14:57
This ap does not work at all. It asks me to enter a restore code and I have no restore code. Nothing I enter works. So I am dead in the pond 🙃
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.
Great entertainment
by Smmozie on 2017/04/08 04:45

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 Hvench 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

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.
Enjoyment with my ponds
by tree319 on 2016/10/11 22:14
So far I think I have convinced like 6 people to download this game. It is fun and just nice to play with the koi. It is a game. Fun, thanks
Needs some Updates, but a fun time waster
by msdrpepper on 2016/10/09 06:54
I've never gotten this to connect to Facebook friends. I forget what else... Everyone else has pretty much covered all the improvements it needs, like Facebook connectivity, or changing pond backgrounds, etc.
Busy girl
by Koi enthusiast on 2016/09/11 14:44
I have enjoyed this app for months now, but I do agree with most of the reviews. The ambience feature never has worked, even the review of them does work! Would love to see new combinations of koi in the koi store. I'm a newer user so I didn't see what was available before. Please fix these issues. Don't kill off the fish. I've upgraded the filters and still am unable to go the number of days between cleaning the ponds. Sometimes I think of deleting the app! Please fix it!!!
I would love, except for...
by EmSMT:3 on 2016/08/18 01:44
I bought a pond ambience: "Tropical Birds" (spent 4 credits on it, which got by selling some koi fishes), and it stayed the same. As a matter of fact, it stays the same even if I change it between the free ones "Forest" and "Quiet". Also, the 'previews' do not work. Please, fix. I love this game, but this made me very upset. I got it for my 3-years-old niece. Update (8/17/16): Liking it less. No fix yet.
Nice but...
by Bnpbaku on 2016/08/11 06:15
Wish I could communicate/share fish between iPad n iPhone😔. Also the join wheel is very stingy.
Well?
by Stepwild on 2016/08/10 04:43
Too many in app purchases. The ambient sounds do not work on my 6s Plus. It does on my old iPhone 5. The water sounds work on both.
Fishy
by derlict311 on 2016/08/08 04:35
This game like if you don't have a fish this is a perfect game Like I have a fish but he is not as fun as this game
Don't waste coins on ambience
by sklashua on 2016/08/05 00:33
I like the game. I was disappointed when I used my precious coins to buy a ambient sound package and it didn't work. Please fix this issue!
Rigged
by Bobnjose on 2016/08/02 16:29
I like this app, it's pretty cool. Would be nice if you didn't need to buy money because it was wasted! After you get five gifts in a row for free koins, it doesn't usually give you any! Rigged so you waste your money. Also, things should be less expensive.
Great App
by Tyler Addison on 2016/07/15 05:01

Improvements
by Blindlover55 on 2016/07/08 21:16
The only thing you can do with VoiceOver is playing with your fish. Improvements should be made regarding accessibility.
It has issues
by Benuathanasia on 2016/07/03 20:48
The social aspect does not work for me at all. I have personally installed the app on my niece, nephew, mother, father, and sister's phone, shared all their ponds on FB (and we're all FB friends) but no one can see anyone else's ponds. Also as important, there needs to be a way to completely silence all audio. When listening to audiobooks/music on headphones, I can't touch this app because the noise from the water and dragonflies is so ridiculous. Finally, words cannot describe how much I passionately hate the yosho. It has a friggin person for its skin pattern. Every time I see it, it completely destroys the small amount of immersion this game has.
App not doing what it says it does

I downloaded this app for clients (I work with children) and a niece. They follow all the rules (feed and play with the fish, clean the tank and tap on the daily gift) and the app will not provide them the opportunity to spin for free coins (which it says it will if you tap on the free gift for five days in a row.) It's not nice to disappoint little ones just to make a buck... At least that's how it feels in this case. Something tells me the developers aren't going to fix this or anyone problem reported in these reviews. Too bad. It is a sweet app other wise.
Frustrating if you don't check it regularly
by laurascudder on 2016/06/10 16:08
I downloaded this to get my toddler through some airplane time, and for a while I was having fun breeding fish, checking it every day. Then I hit a ceiling where it was difficult to breed better fish without paying. I stopped checking regularly, and then when my son needed some help next, all the fish were dead. But no worries! You can just pay to get them back! You can just pay for your fish back every time you forget about the app for a few days. No thank you. Deleted. My son still asks for the fish, and I just tell him they're gone.
pls fix this

this isnt realistic,if it were they would be as healthy as my real fish, at first this was relaxing but now i cant play because i cant get the money to revive the fish, thx for nothing
Really awesome!!!
by Oh fi nfujbec on 2016/05/08 18:12
It's really fun but it would be nice if it were easier to get coins

Pocket Pond 2
by Having Tons Of Fun! on 2016/04/20 22:15
I've enjoyed this game for years. Now, it's getting glitchy. I buy a fish or catch a fish & before I can put it in a pond, it disappears, along with my koins. Not happy.
Hasn't been updated in years
by hisjr on 2016/04/16 11:33
The app is good. I enjoy breeding and caring for the fish. Unfortunately I haven't seen an update to this app in about 2 years. I suspect the developers are keeping this app available as a source of income. You're unable to share ponds. I've made numerous requests for support. You're unable to link to social media. I've made numerous requests. You're unable to link iPad and iPhone versions. I've made numerous requests.
You SU*KS!
by Kamilito Zegna on 2016/04/02 18:07
what is it with you guys trying to make all the player 'flat broke' on the game ?? especially on the gambling feature, it never meant to double the player's coins. it was surely meant to double speed the players for losing the game. So hopefully all the lost players would buy with real world money. Good luck with that! Your greed will surely be the end of you!

I got a new phone and downloaded the pocket pond 2 version and the ambience is gone. I did not put it on quiet. Its just gone and i have not been able to get it back on. Anyone know how to fix? I have deleted the app and then put it back on my phone but it still does not work.
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 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.
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.
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

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,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.
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)
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.
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.
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

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

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.

Pocket Pond 2
by I love puppies!!!!!! on 2012/07/01 18:28
This app is very fun and the fish are very beautiful. My suggestion to make it better and more addicting is to have games to play with your koi and your friends' koi. Also make it easier to earn Koins, like trading certain amounts of Credits for a few Koins and/or by earning them by winning games, like I mentioned before. Great job guys, and keep up the great work!!! ;D I don't know what you guys did to the app, but now I can't fish! Every time I click fish, it blacks out and goes back to the home screen. I wish I could keep your rating at 5 stars, but until you fix this problem, I'm going to drop it to 4. ;( ;( ;( Omg...you people have messed this game up or something because I can't even return back to my pond after cleaning the filter and I have to keep feeding and playing and cleaning my koi and filter over and over and OVER AGAIN BECAUSE YOUR STUPID GAME IS MESSED UP!!!!!!!!!!! Now 6 of my fish are probably going to die because of you guys! ;( ;( ;( You people need to fix this thing or I won't keep my rating at 5 stars. Until you fix this thing, I will give you 1 star. I wish I could give you 0! And I had my iPad synced to my iMac the other night and it still doesn't work. Please fix this!!! It was wonderful when I first got it and now it's the worst game that I own right now. I am really really REALLY considering deleting this app. PLEASE FIX THE "BUGS" IN THIS GAME!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! ;( ;( ;(
Compellingly addictive, beautifully peaceful.
by Squid_Jig on 2013/02/01 23:15
Pocket Pond 2 is a great simulation. It's a rich enough environment that one can create all sorts of goals even though the game itself has no stated objectives. I collect certain color combinations, look for the best varieties of fish to breed for 'koins' and breed fish to earn koins as quickly as possible so I can buy more fish, ponds, and accessories. Some times it feels like work but it's a job I enjoy. The graphics and sounds are beautiful though I think the fish looked better without the dorsal fins. The app nicely integrates many different elements as mini-games, such as hook and line fishing, games of chance and social networking among others. Great as it is, I would like to see some interface changes, namely, switching from one pond to the next should be a simple matter of a swipe or a single tap. And a list view of a pond's fish where I could work on individual or multiple fish would also be good. All in all a cool, beautiful and compelling way to pass the time.
Favorite iPad distraction
by Emblby on 2013/09/01 01:57
I love the peacefulness of this "game"... The options to build ponds with different backgrounds, creatures and ambiance is very satisfying. One thing I'd pay for is the opportunity to be battling a threat, so the happiness of the fish would mean something. This would inspire creating areas for fish to hide - as real koi owners do - from threats like herons and raccoons. It's a reality of having a koi pond that babies need plants to hide within, and then the lillypads start meaning something, the expensive ground plants would actually be something I'd want. On the happiness end of things, I'd like to see a little more personality and differentiation between the fish. Nothing cartoonish, but a reward for my attention would be noticing nuances of difference between the fish. I have two fish I keep nostalgically because they're each a year old, but it honestly makes no difference - they behave the same as day-old fish and I get no reward for keeping them. Lots of opportunity to evolve a great game!
Love it (oops by me)
by Lost Gamer-X on 2014/09/27 10:43
I am so sorry, I feel so bad now... '...I'm hoping, this glitch that could be fixed. I was going to breed my 2 Black Salt Utsuri (spelling?) and it said I needed to pay 1185 coins to do it. It never did this before. Maybe it has something to do with how many coins I've got, or something else, but everything breeds normal - at least my main and minor breeding fish. So sad this happened ;(' is what I said. But... Well, I have to admit this one. Pathetically... I was looking at the credits instead. I'm so sorry but I made it 5, I said I would! (However, sometimes I have to wait quite a while to make them happy, playing with them every day isn't so easy for everyone - my friend I play with - and tapping the ok button makes all the fish swim away and I have to wait for them to breed them again. Happy/Feed all button?) *As said before* Have to say again I'm so sorry about that... Recommended by me! >_^
No longer fun
by Rubbanubb on 2014/07/23 03:52
I had this app for a year. Loved it. Was Level 20. Had Every incredibly rare koi. 8 ponds filled. Then iPhone crashed. Lost it all this June. Had to start over. Been 4 weeks now and game not working normal. They haven't offered ANY incredibly rare koi in stores anymore. And nobody will reply to my emails as to what the problem is. Getting koins for me is no issue. Already have 1500. Secret is to keep an Asage and Goshi as a breeding pair. Make sure Asage has valuable color pattern. Like black ocean. Make sure Goshi has non valuable color pattern. Like cream lemon. To breed them costs no koins. Only 34 credits. Every Goshi bred will be worth 2 or 3 koins depending on color pattern it inherits. I fill 3 or 4 ponds with Goshi. Every 5 hours I earn over 100 koins for the offspring when sold. :) But now that they don't put anymore incredibly rare koi in the store, I'm ready to be done with it and delete the app. No fun without the Yashu, Yosho, Zushu, Warimi, and Woitsu. Shame on you triggerwave!! Fix the problem already or I'm done!
Pocket Pond 2
by Tatteredfocus on 2015/12/07 21:12
Had this app then deleted to save space on my iPhone, but recently added it back in as I could use the relaxing aspect of it. That's all this app has going for it, however. None of my previous purchases or advancements were saved despite me downloading & doing all the backing up like instructed. I had to start all over again! No big deal, but the lack of advancement opportunites unless you are willing to pay real-world money has, once again, made me question whether I should waste my time with this app/game or not. I would like to see improved opportunities to win koins & other stock items for the ponds as well as advancement opportunities to level up within the game rather than having to pay. There are definite improvements needed & it appears this hasn't been updated in a while. I might keep it on my phone for a little bit, but it probably won't be long before I delete it again & find something else a little more consistent & more interactive.
Entertaining, but expensive
by CVSWarriorMom on 2013/03/23 18:47
I really enjoyed this app to begin with. It brings a new spin on the original Pocket Pond, allowing you to buy, catch, and breed many new Koi and raise them in several different ponds. The app also gives you free daily gifts. The problem is, with this app, you MUST make in-app purchases and buy coins in order to make any real progress. Without koins, you cannot catch, buy, or breed rare breeds of koi, which is needed to in order to earn more koins. I bought a bag of 100 koins for $1.99 thinking it would help me progress further, but it's clear that once these are gone, I must buy more if I want to breed and sell rare koi. If you choose not to buy koins, you're left with an app that is quite similar to the original Pocket Pond. The only real difference is you must clean your pond filters daily, and you must feed the koi or they will die. You'll still receive the free daily gifts, but these consist of common koi, XP points, way too many dragonfly packs, and the rare 1-2 koins. I'm pretty sure I will delete this app once my koins are gone unless an update allows better ways to earn koins. I'm not interested in making frequent in-app purchases and I don't want to be forced to tend my ponds every day if I can't make real progress. ***Update: I deleted the app. Way too tedious to care for the koi and ponds everyday. The same old routine gets very boring.
Love this! Want more ponds!!
by Scottygrrl32 on 2013/03/20 02:45
Beautiful fish, realistic settings and movement, it even tickles when they nibble your fingers! The platform seems very stable, it's never even crashed once and I have 8 ponds! My only complaint is that it seems that when you breed two fish, you get a duplicate of one of the parent fish far too often.(like 90% of the time) I wish you only got a blend of the two, and not one of the same fish back. This way you wouldnt have to breed them repeatedly just to get a new fish! However, I am aware of genetics and how often this happens in the real world, but this is a made up environment, and it seems that that could be fixed. It is especially annoying with rare fish because you don't get your investment back sometimes. I also want 10 ponds!!!!! 8 is too few!!!
Consistent crashes ruined my game.
by Twineball on 2012/07/18 16:45
I liked the original Pocket Pond. It was a relaxing and fun novelty. When Pocket Pond 2 came along, it seemed more in-depth, so I figured I'd give it a try. It was pretty fun for the most part. However, the ponds demanded pretty frequent attention. If I happened to have a busy day, and did not get to my pond(s), I'd find the next day that my fish had died. Upgrading filters helps, but I just didn't have time to get to my ponds multiple times a day. But I was still managing and it was still pretty fun. Then the latest update came, which made it impossible to clean my ponds' filters. I could physically swipe the screen to clean the filters, but then when I tried to tap 'Return' the app would crash. EVERY time. I hard-restarted my device multiple times, I re-installed the app, and did everything I could think of. No dice. No clean filters, dead fish, game over. I'm not going to bother starting over, even with a new update that fixes the crash. It was cool while it lasted. I invested more time into than I should have. Sorry, guys. I didn't buy anything from the Koin store. But now I'm glad I didn't. It would have gone down the toilet with the rest of my progress. It's a cool game for those who want to give it a try. But it wasn't calming and relaxing like the original. I've still got the original on my device. That'll have to be my pocket pond from here on out.
Cheapskate!
by retzkb on 2012/07/14 16:28
I've been doing this for nearly two months now, and I check in every day for the daily gift. I haven't missed a single day since I started. And yet, my accumulated days for the free Koins spin keep disappearing! It happened again today! I had 4 days saved up, I was all ready to claim today's gift, then spin the wheel. After the new update was finished, all records of my previous four days was gone and I was starting over...again! This has happened over and over. I'll have two or three days saved up, then nothing. And it doesn't just happen after an update. In the last two months, I've only been able to spin the wheel four times. Oh, and after the previous update to "tighten" up the wheel, I've never won anything other than four Koins. Seems fishy to me (no pun intended). It's an interesting app, but if there are this many problems with the "free" way to earn Koins, I'll probably stop messing with it soon, since it's too frustrating to pop in everyday and see my work disappearing. Fix this! Ack! Another problem! My first pond's filter is filthy, but every time I clean it and hit return, the app crashes! I finally had to resort to feeing the fish and leaving the app in order for my feeding to take affect, but I'm afraid my rare koi are going to die unless the filter problem is fixed soon. Oh, and yesterday's daily gift? Gone! What gives?
More of a lovely ipond than a game.
by WildBlueRose on 2013/11/06 17:55
The graphics & effects are spectacular, the fish are pretty. But you can't really get more varieties of fish or anything else unless you want to pay a lot. This game is very expensive. You can't make much, & usually lose 'koine' in all activities that could potentially get one ahead in the game. So basically I let the kids feed the fish I have. I would play it if I could pay it. But I've spent a little & have little to nothing to show for it & that's just depressing. I would rather be able to buy the game & be able to play it & have it work without constantly spending money I don't have. So if you like peaceful little fish this is lovely. If you want to play it... I have found it unplayable in the sense of getting cooler rare fish, o say nothing of adding new items to the ponds! I hope that changes, thank you.

I find this game to be peaceful and interactive. I do hope the developers update it. I'd like to see the coin be removed so all you use to buy things like. Fish, food, or plain out breeding. Two currency to buy things and breed. I hope they remove that or rid the credit make it zen coin like they have. Then no credits or vice versa. The game is ok besides that. I hope to see more things in the game like new ponds and the fishing be cheaper but more interactive. So you can fish you have to set the hook get bait bucket make it more challenging. That will let player get to catch fish or release sell them. Be more fun if the strict double currency is removed. Just one currency is used in the game. Please developer contact me. I'd love to speak with you.
Friendly suggestion(s)
by StoneGrazed537 on 2013/01/04 05:14
I liked the game overall, but there were two things that annoyed me: the fish that I had kept swimming off screen and there was no way to attract them so I could see them. So maybe there could be a way to attract them, or at least make the screen small enough so they don't swim off. The other thing was the koins ( i think, the other source of money that was more rare) was just that: rare. There really was no way to get more, other than breeding and selling the fishes that I liked which were with the most. I just think that fish could be worth more koins, or maybe the daily reward would give you koins. So overall, I liked it, but I would like it more if one of these was recognized.

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.

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!!
Annoying

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
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.
by AHPalomita on 2018/06/16 22:58
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
by richie.finn.mike on inst on 2018/01/20 14:05
such an awesome game and a great boredom breaker!! Love it! Five stars!!💞
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.
Absolute frustration
by Kittymum77 on 2018/01/06 07:04

It won’t back up, displayed an error.
WHAT’S GOING ON???
by RayBuf on 2017/12/27 02:34
I haven’t been able to backup since December 17th. I just tried the “delete and restore” and my restore code suddenly won’t work. I’ve sent an email to support but haven’t gotten any response.
Does not work at all
by Jedijeff2000 on 2017/12/26 00:44
Initial help screen never goes away.
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!
Not relaxing
by KeNGirl9 on 2017/12/07 18:34
The fish die easily, so if you were looking for something to relax to, I suggest Pocket Frogs.
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.
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
Label
by Critic@large on 2017/11/10 12:41
There is a large label that won’t go away. Menus do not appear to work.
Won’t start

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
Kathy
by Kate_332 on 2017/04/22 14:57
This ap does not work at all. It asks me to enter a restore code and I have no restore code. Nothing I enter works. So I am dead in the pond 🙃
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.
Great entertainment
by Smmozie on 2017/04/08 04:45

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 Hvench 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.
Enjoyment with my ponds
by tree319 on 2016/10/11 22:14
So far I think I have convinced like 6 people to download this game. It is fun and just nice to play with the koi. It is a game. Fun, thanks
Needs some Updates, but a fun time waster
by msdrpepper on 2016/10/09 06:54
I've never gotten this to connect to Facebook friends. I forget what else... Everyone else has pretty much covered all the improvements it needs, like Facebook connectivity, or changing pond backgrounds, etc.
Busy girl
by Koi enthusiast on 2016/09/11 14:44
I have enjoyed this app for months now, but I do agree with most of the reviews. The ambience feature never has worked, even the review of them does work! Would love to see new combinations of koi in the koi store. I'm a newer user so I didn't see what was available before. Please fix these issues. Don't kill off the fish. I've upgraded the filters and still am unable to go the number of days between cleaning the ponds. Sometimes I think of deleting the app! Please fix it!!!
I would love, except for...
by EmSMT:3 on 2016/08/18 01:44
I bought a pond ambience: "Tropical Birds" (spent 4 credits on it, which got by selling some koi fishes), and it stayed the same. As a matter of fact, it stays the same even if I change it between the free ones "Forest" and "Quiet". Also, the 'previews' do not work. Please, fix. I love this game, but this made me very upset. I got it for my 3-years-old niece. Update (8/17/16): Liking it less. No fix yet.
Nice but...
by Bnpbaku on 2016/08/11 06:15
Wish I could communicate/share fish between iPad n iPhone😔. Also the join wheel is very stingy.
Well?
by Stepwild on 2016/08/10 04:43
Too many in app purchases. The ambient sounds do not work on my 6s Plus. It does on my old iPhone 5. The water sounds work on both.
Fishy
by derlict311 on 2016/08/08 04:35
This game like if you don't have a fish this is a perfect game Like I have a fish but he is not as fun as this game
Don't waste coins on ambience
by sklashua on 2016/08/05 00:33
I like the game. I was disappointed when I used my precious coins to buy a ambient sound package and it didn't work. Please fix this issue!
Rigged
by Bobnjose on 2016/08/02 16:29
I like this app, it's pretty cool. Would be nice if you didn't need to buy money because it was wasted! After you get five gifts in a row for free koins, it doesn't usually give you any! Rigged so you waste your money. Also, things should be less expensive.
Great App
by Tyler Addison on 2016/07/15 05:01

Improvements
by Blindlover55 on 2016/07/08 21:16
The only thing you can do with VoiceOver is playing with your fish. Improvements should be made regarding accessibility.
It has issues
by Benuathanasia on 2016/07/03 20:48
The social aspect does not work for me at all. I have personally installed the app on my niece, nephew, mother, father, and sister's phone, shared all their ponds on FB (and we're all FB friends) but no one can see anyone else's ponds. Also as important, there needs to be a way to completely silence all audio. When listening to audiobooks/music on headphones, I can't touch this app because the noise from the water and dragonflies is so ridiculous. Finally, words cannot describe how much I passionately hate the yosho. It has a friggin person for its skin pattern. Every time I see it, it completely destroys the small amount of immersion this game has.
App not doing what it says it does
by A Girl with a Curl- on 2016/06/11 15:38
I downloaded this app for clients (I work with children) and a niece. They follow all the rules (feed and play with the fish, clean the tank and tap on the daily gift) and the app will not provide them the opportunity to spin for free coins (which it says it will if you tap on the free gift for five days in a row.) It's not nice to disappoint little ones just to make a buck... At least that's how it feels in this case. Something tells me the developers aren't going to fix this or anyone problem reported in these reviews. Too bad. It is a sweet app other wise.
Frustrating if you don't check it regularly
by laurascudder on 2016/06/10 16:08
I downloaded this to get my toddler through some airplane time, and for a while I was having fun breeding fish, checking it every day. Then I hit a ceiling where it was difficult to breed better fish without paying. I stopped checking regularly, and then when my son needed some help next, all the fish were dead. But no worries! You can just pay to get them back! You can just pay for your fish back every time you forget about the app for a few days. No thank you. Deleted. My son still asks for the fish, and I just tell him they're gone.
pls fix this
by fish are dead on 2016/05/21 07:40
this isnt realistic,if it were they would be as healthy as my real fish, at first this was relaxing but now i cant play because i cant get the money to revive the fish, thx for nothing
Really awesome!!!
by Oh fi nfujbec on 2016/05/08 18:12
It's really fun but it would be nice if it were easier to get coins

Pocket Pond 2
by Having Tons Of Fun! on 2016/04/20 22:15
I've enjoyed this game for years. Now, it's getting glitchy. I buy a fish or catch a fish & before I can put it in a pond, it disappears, along with my koins. Not happy.
Hasn't been updated in years
by hisjr on 2016/04/16 11:33
The app is good. I enjoy breeding and caring for the fish. Unfortunately I haven't seen an update to this app in about 2 years. I suspect the developers are keeping this app available as a source of income. You're unable to share ponds. I've made numerous requests for support. You're unable to link to social media. I've made numerous requests. You're unable to link iPad and iPhone versions. I've made numerous requests.
You SU*KS!
by Kamilito Zegna on 2016/04/02 18:07
what is it with you guys trying to make all the player 'flat broke' on the game ?? especially on the gambling feature, it never meant to double the player's coins. it was surely meant to double speed the players for losing the game. So hopefully all the lost players would buy with real world money. Good luck with that! Your greed will surely be the end of you!

I got a new phone and downloaded the pocket pond 2 version and the ambience is gone. I did not put it on quiet. Its just gone and i have not been able to get it back on. Anyone know how to fix? I have deleted the app and then put it back on my phone but it still does not work.
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 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.
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.
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.

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.
Good Game
by DragonaBrine on 2018/09/11 13:15

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.
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

Tutorial is the length of a novel

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.

Pocket Pond 2
by I love puppies!!!!!! on 2012/07/01 18:28
This app is very fun and the fish are very beautiful. My suggestion to make it better and more addicting is to have games to play with your koi and your friends' koi. Also make it easier to earn Koins, like trading certain amounts of Credits for a few Koins and/or by earning them by winning games, like I mentioned before. Great job guys, and keep up the great work!!! ;D I don't know what you guys did to the app, but now I can't fish! Every time I click fish, it blacks out and goes back to the home screen. I wish I could keep your rating at 5 stars, but until you fix this problem, I'm going to drop it to 4. ;( ;( ;( Omg...you people have messed this game up or something because I can't even return back to my pond after cleaning the filter and I have to keep feeding and playing and cleaning my koi and filter over and over and OVER AGAIN BECAUSE YOUR STUPID GAME IS MESSED UP!!!!!!!!!!! Now 6 of my fish are probably going to die because of you guys! ;( ;( ;( You people need to fix this thing or I won't keep my rating at 5 stars. Until you fix this thing, I will give you 1 star. I wish I could give you 0! And I had my iPad synced to my iMac the other night and it still doesn't work. Please fix this!!! It was wonderful when I first got it and now it's the worst game that I own right now. I am really really REALLY considering deleting this app. PLEASE FIX THE "BUGS" IN THIS GAME!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! ;( ;( ;(
Compellingly addictive, beautifully peaceful.
by Squid_Jig on 2013/02/01 23:15
Pocket Pond 2 is a great simulation. It's a rich enough environment that one can create all sorts of goals even though the game itself has no stated objectives. I collect certain color combinations, look for the best varieties of fish to breed for 'koins' and breed fish to earn koins as quickly as possible so I can buy more fish, ponds, and accessories. Some times it feels like work but it's a job I enjoy. The graphics and sounds are beautiful though I think the fish looked better without the dorsal fins. The app nicely integrates many different elements as mini-games, such as hook and line fishing, games of chance and social networking among others. Great as it is, I would like to see some interface changes, namely, switching from one pond to the next should be a simple matter of a swipe or a single tap. And a list view of a pond's fish where I could work on individual or multiple fish would also be good. All in all a cool, beautiful and compelling way to pass the time.
Favorite iPad distraction
by Emblby on 2013/09/01 01:57
I love the peacefulness of this "game"... The options to build ponds with different backgrounds, creatures and ambiance is very satisfying. One thing I'd pay for is the opportunity to be battling a threat, so the happiness of the fish would mean something. This would inspire creating areas for fish to hide - as real koi owners do - from threats like herons and raccoons. It's a reality of having a koi pond that babies need plants to hide within, and then the lillypads start meaning something, the expensive ground plants would actually be something I'd want. On the happiness end of things, I'd like to see a little more personality and differentiation between the fish. Nothing cartoonish, but a reward for my attention would be noticing nuances of difference between the fish. I have two fish I keep nostalgically because they're each a year old, but it honestly makes no difference - they behave the same as day-old fish and I get no reward for keeping them. Lots of opportunity to evolve a great game!
Love it (oops by me)
by Lost Gamer-X on 2014/09/27 10:43
I am so sorry, I feel so bad now... '...I'm hoping, this glitch that could be fixed. I was going to breed my 2 Black Salt Utsuri (spelling?) and it said I needed to pay 1185 coins to do it. It never did this before. Maybe it has something to do with how many coins I've got, or something else, but everything breeds normal - at least my main and minor breeding fish. So sad this happened ;(' is what I said. But... Well, I have to admit this one. Pathetically... I was looking at the credits instead. I'm so sorry but I made it 5, I said I would! (However, sometimes I have to wait quite a while to make them happy, playing with them every day isn't so easy for everyone - my friend I play with - and tapping the ok button makes all the fish swim away and I have to wait for them to breed them again. Happy/Feed all button?) *As said before* Have to say again I'm so sorry about that... Recommended by me! >_^
No longer fun
by Rubbanubb on 2014/07/23 03:52
I had this app for a year. Loved it. Was Level 20. Had Every incredibly rare koi. 8 ponds filled. Then iPhone crashed. Lost it all this June. Had to start over. Been 4 weeks now and game not working normal. They haven't offered ANY incredibly rare koi in stores anymore. And nobody will reply to my emails as to what the problem is. Getting koins for me is no issue. Already have 1500. Secret is to keep an Asage and Goshi as a breeding pair. Make sure Asage has valuable color pattern. Like black ocean. Make sure Goshi has non valuable color pattern. Like cream lemon. To breed them costs no koins. Only 34 credits. Every Goshi bred will be worth 2 or 3 koins depending on color pattern it inherits. I fill 3 or 4 ponds with Goshi. Every 5 hours I earn over 100 koins for the offspring when sold. :) But now that they don't put anymore incredibly rare koi in the store, I'm ready to be done with it and delete the app. No fun without the Yashu, Yosho, Zushu, Warimi, and Woitsu. Shame on you triggerwave!! Fix the problem already or I'm done!
Pocket Pond 2
by Tatteredfocus on 2015/12/07 21:12
Had this app then deleted to save space on my iPhone, but recently added it back in as I could use the relaxing aspect of it. That's all this app has going for it, however. None of my previous purchases or advancements were saved despite me downloading & doing all the backing up like instructed. I had to start all over again! No big deal, but the lack of advancement opportunites unless you are willing to pay real-world money has, once again, made me question whether I should waste my time with this app/game or not. I would like to see improved opportunities to win koins & other stock items for the ponds as well as advancement opportunities to level up within the game rather than having to pay. There are definite improvements needed & it appears this hasn't been updated in a while. I might keep it on my phone for a little bit, but it probably won't be long before I delete it again & find something else a little more consistent & more interactive.
Entertaining, but expensive
by CVSWarriorMom on 2013/03/23 18:47
I really enjoyed this app to begin with. It brings a new spin on the original Pocket Pond, allowing you to buy, catch, and breed many new Koi and raise them in several different ponds. The app also gives you free daily gifts. The problem is, with this app, you MUST make in-app purchases and buy coins in order to make any real progress. Without koins, you cannot catch, buy, or breed rare breeds of koi, which is needed to in order to earn more koins. I bought a bag of 100 koins for $1.99 thinking it would help me progress further, but it's clear that once these are gone, I must buy more if I want to breed and sell rare koi. If you choose not to buy koins, you're left with an app that is quite similar to the original Pocket Pond. The only real difference is you must clean your pond filters daily, and you must feed the koi or they will die. You'll still receive the free daily gifts, but these consist of common koi, XP points, way too many dragonfly packs, and the rare 1-2 koins. I'm pretty sure I will delete this app once my koins are gone unless an update allows better ways to earn koins. I'm not interested in making frequent in-app purchases and I don't want to be forced to tend my ponds every day if I can't make real progress. ***Update: I deleted the app. Way too tedious to care for the koi and ponds everyday. The same old routine gets very boring.
Love this! Want more ponds!!
by Scottygrrl32 on 2013/03/20 02:45
Beautiful fish, realistic settings and movement, it even tickles when they nibble your fingers! The platform seems very stable, it's never even crashed once and I have 8 ponds! My only complaint is that it seems that when you breed two fish, you get a duplicate of one of the parent fish far too often.(like 90% of the time) I wish you only got a blend of the two, and not one of the same fish back. This way you wouldnt have to breed them repeatedly just to get a new fish! However, I am aware of genetics and how often this happens in the real world, but this is a made up environment, and it seems that that could be fixed. It is especially annoying with rare fish because you don't get your investment back sometimes. I also want 10 ponds!!!!! 8 is too few!!!
Consistent crashes ruined my game.
by Twineball on 2012/07/18 16:45
I liked the original Pocket Pond. It was a relaxing and fun novelty. When Pocket Pond 2 came along, it seemed more in-depth, so I figured I'd give it a try. It was pretty fun for the most part. However, the ponds demanded pretty frequent attention. If I happened to have a busy day, and did not get to my pond(s), I'd find the next day that my fish had died. Upgrading filters helps, but I just didn't have time to get to my ponds multiple times a day. But I was still managing and it was still pretty fun. Then the latest update came, which made it impossible to clean my ponds' filters. I could physically swipe the screen to clean the filters, but then when I tried to tap 'Return' the app would crash. EVERY time. I hard-restarted my device multiple times, I re-installed the app, and did everything I could think of. No dice. No clean filters, dead fish, game over. I'm not going to bother starting over, even with a new update that fixes the crash. It was cool while it lasted. I invested more time into than I should have. Sorry, guys. I didn't buy anything from the Koin store. But now I'm glad I didn't. It would have gone down the toilet with the rest of my progress. It's a cool game for those who want to give it a try. But it wasn't calming and relaxing like the original. I've still got the original on my device. That'll have to be my pocket pond from here on out.
Cheapskate!
by retzkb on 2012/07/14 16:28
I've been doing this for nearly two months now, and I check in every day for the daily gift. I haven't missed a single day since I started. And yet, my accumulated days for the free Koins spin keep disappearing! It happened again today! I had 4 days saved up, I was all ready to claim today's gift, then spin the wheel. After the new update was finished, all records of my previous four days was gone and I was starting over...again! This has happened over and over. I'll have two or three days saved up, then nothing. And it doesn't just happen after an update. In the last two months, I've only been able to spin the wheel four times. Oh, and after the previous update to "tighten" up the wheel, I've never won anything other than four Koins. Seems fishy to me (no pun intended). It's an interesting app, but if there are this many problems with the "free" way to earn Koins, I'll probably stop messing with it soon, since it's too frustrating to pop in everyday and see my work disappearing. Fix this! Ack! Another problem! My first pond's filter is filthy, but every time I clean it and hit return, the app crashes! I finally had to resort to feeing the fish and leaving the app in order for my feeding to take affect, but I'm afraid my rare koi are going to die unless the filter problem is fixed soon. Oh, and yesterday's daily gift? Gone! What gives?
More of a lovely ipond than a game.
by WildBlueRose on 2013/11/06 17:55
The graphics & effects are spectacular, the fish are pretty. But you can't really get more varieties of fish or anything else unless you want to pay a lot. This game is very expensive. You can't make much, & usually lose 'koine' in all activities that could potentially get one ahead in the game. So basically I let the kids feed the fish I have. I would play it if I could pay it. But I've spent a little & have little to nothing to show for it & that's just depressing. I would rather be able to buy the game & be able to play it & have it work without constantly spending money I don't have. So if you like peaceful little fish this is lovely. If you want to play it... I have found it unplayable in the sense of getting cooler rare fish, o say nothing of adding new items to the ponds! I hope that changes, thank you.

I find this game to be peaceful and interactive. I do hope the developers update it. I'd like to see the coin be removed so all you use to buy things like. Fish, food, or plain out breeding. Two currency to buy things and breed. I hope they remove that or rid the credit make it zen coin like they have. Then no credits or vice versa. The game is ok besides that. I hope to see more things in the game like new ponds and the fishing be cheaper but more interactive. So you can fish you have to set the hook get bait bucket make it more challenging. That will let player get to catch fish or release sell them. Be more fun if the strict double currency is removed. Just one currency is used in the game. Please developer contact me. I'd love to speak with you.
Friendly suggestion(s)
by StoneGrazed537 on 2013/01/04 05:14
I liked the game overall, but there were two things that annoyed me: the fish that I had kept swimming off screen and there was no way to attract them so I could see them. So maybe there could be a way to attract them, or at least make the screen small enough so they don't swim off. The other thing was the koins ( i think, the other source of money that was more rare) was just that: rare. There really was no way to get more, other than breeding and selling the fishes that I liked which were with the most. I just think that fish could be worth more koins, or maybe the daily reward would give you koins. So overall, I liked it, but I would like it more if one of these was recognized.
