NimbleBit's Pocket Frogs [Free] has taken both our forums and the App Store by storm. Since its release less than a week ago, the game has been downloaded over half a million times, and currently is sitting at #1 on the iPad free charts and #3 on the iPhone free charts. Aside from the main Pocket Frogs thread, we've also got incredibly active threads on our forums both for finding friends and trading frogs. We loved the game in our review, and if you haven't yet, you really need to download it to give breeding your own colony of cute little frogs a try.

The 1.0.1 update was just approved and is currently available for download. This update addresses quite a few bugs and other issues that people have been reporting in our forums since the game's release. If you've had weird issues with missing frogs, all those problems have been fixed. Also, help text has been tweaked to make things clearer for new players.

NimbleBit isn't stopping there though, they're hard at work on additional updates for Pocket Frogs which will include a new frog design as well as fulfilling one of their most requested features by implementing a "Frogedex". (Similar to a Pokedex in Pokemon games.) The Frogedex will show every frog available in the game, as well as which of those frogs you have come across. Something to keep in mind though, with 13,800 available frogs currently (and 14,720 after the update), it's going to take some serious dedication to breed them all.

We haven't heard any specific release dates for the Frogedex update other than sometime in between "soon" and "when it's done", but looking at NimbleBit's track records with their other games, they've been pretty quick with updates. In the meantime, if you have suggestions regarding features and additions for future updates, swing by the thread where the developers have been actively posting since the game's release.

      Nintendo might sue you because Frogdex is too similar a name to Pokedex :o

      • Lelanthos

        naw nintendo is too busy to play awesome frog games

      Any word on a feature to sell items from the mailbox, and maybe a storage bin of sorts for extra backdrops? Also maybe a larger catalog or rather to simplify, each racial type is in the catalog as a root catalog entry and they are unlocked at the appropriate levels. Then the catalog just allows you to change the colors on the root frog racial type, the colors available based on what you have already cataloged. It would be sort of like unlocking the color combinations in the catalog and I think would hold extra appeal for the obsessive collector types while also simplifying the catalog, which seems like it might be a small nightmare to decide which to keep or which not. Just my 2c, I bought some potions to support you folks since you made a great game and did a great job on it.

    Awesome game. It also adds a frogdex. Nice! I really love that the TouchArcade community has set up a trading post in the game discussion forums. It's beneficial to everyone.

    And would be great for the catalog to have a sort by colour/subtype/pattern/money thingie...

    • HelperMonkey

      A sortable catalog is a great idea.

    • Keslus

      I agree as well.. This is badly needed

    Those concerned about the name Frogedex should google Rolodex (a combination of the shortening of "rolling" and "index"), which has been in use since 1958. Nothing wrong with Frogedex being used to indicate Frog Index, same as Pokedex being used to indicate Pokemon Index.

    I have the secret to unlimited potions, stamps and money and its posted in the facebook space for pocket frogs. No having to shell out the 4.99 or 29.99 for their Frog Proshop. Your time and money has been just been saved! So all the complaints of stuffed mailboxes and clogged up habitats are now a thing of the past. If it's a phony, it will be debunked pretty fast. Works on iPad and iPhone as tested, pretty sure on iTouch too.

    • My2rosebuds

      Which facebook page? There are several.

    Fun for a while and then it just takes too long to breed and hatch frogs as they become more valuable. I would gladly pay a few dollars for a well balanced game that did not require additional purchases. However the game is designed to lure a handful of ignorant people (probably mostly kids using their unsuspecting parents money) into paying 10 to 100 times what this game is worth. Too bad the developers decided to go scamware instead of selling it. I hear the developers have made about half a million on the game so far, but they would have made double that at least if they had just sold it for 99 cents.

    • Hughburness

      Just fill your nurseries go to time and date move it forward a couple of days or hours depends when they become adults cash them in move time and dateback job done remember every time you move date go to presents and you get a new one

    Hey so I heard that you can make/design your own Pocket Frog frogs. Is this true? Can you give me a link? How many habitats can you have i think i reached my limit but I WANT MORE! I LOVE this game so much! its so amazing! But i have a few suggestions..
    1.) Unlimited amount of frogs in catalog
    2,) Unlimited amount of habitats
    3.) Built in thing to design your own frogs -- Like taking a plain frog and taking a picture from you photo libraries..THAT WOULD BE SOOO LEGIT!
    4.) More games

    You guys should also make more games like these but with other animals/reptiles like a Bird or something idk!

    Please somebody respond to this and give me a link to make my own!

    Just breed a bunch of frogs then go to settings and change to 2 or 3 days forward sell the frogs(more money than it costs to breed)and go back. Great way to gain experience!

  • Dunker3

    (And money)

  • Grace hannan

    There needs to pocket frogs for the computer, cause I don't have an ipod or an ipad!
