Main GlitchesThere are two main in-game glitches that can be used to make money and level up faster. They are:
- Racing Cheat -(Does not work on Android) the easiest and most risk-free method of "cheating". There are two ways a player can perform this cheat. First, the player races a selected frog and takes first place. The player then selects the option to take an opposing frog. After this the two options come into play:
Option 2 -The player selects a single frog, and after the dialogue box prompting you to accept the frog or cancel, the player "rubs" the location in lanes where the frogs are sitting behind the box. The "rubbed" frogs will be shipped to your mailbox, and in some cases the player ends up with the same frog twice. This method can be used to obtain the same frog multiple times.
- Mailbox Cheat -The most dangerous cheat of all is called the "Mailbox Hack", "Mailbox Cheat", or the "GCA (Green Callaina Anura) Cheat". The player empties the mailbox except for one frog, delivered. The player then places the frog by tapping the nursery simultaneously with TWO fingers. The frog will be in the nursery twice, and in the mailbox once, and the mailbox will have 255 random frogs and items in it. This cheat has been reported to remove frogs from the Froggydex without a way to restore them, freeze the app, alter the app icon on the home screen, make frogs un-selectable, place frogs in the mailbox that are not delivered or take -1 stamps to deliver, and place "null" items in your mailbox. Players will then have to wait until the problem is fixed, restart their device or completely reinstall the app and start over. For this reason this cheat is very unpopular among earnest players.
- Inifinite Daily Prizes Cheat -After you collect the daily prize, exit Pocket Frogs and go to Settings > General > Date & Time > Set Date & Time (if "Set Date & Time" is not an option, turn off wireless and it should appear), and set the time forward/backward 1+ days, then return to Pocket Frogs, get the daily prize, set the date back to present time, and collect the daily prize again. This cheat can be repeated over and over again to get how ever many prizes thou doth desire. However, Androids can only time travel a few times. If you do it too much, Pocket Frogs will crash.
- Fast Maturing Cheat -You might wonder how to make an egg mature almost immediately... Well, it's possible! -There are 2 ways to do this:
2: If you already have the egg/hatchling you watch mature during present time, then change the date to preferably 2 days in the past, return to Pocket Frogs, then change the date back to the present time, and your egg should be a fully grown mature frog!
While it is not clear what other cheats are being used, there are various cheats allowing users to falsify their accomplishments, thus all high scores listed in the leaderboard (Coins, XP, Lifetime Frogs, Flies Eaten, Pond Presents, and Gifts Sent) are not true and actually reflect players ability to hack the software. For example the Pond Presents leader (as of 3/28/2012) claims to have collected 1215752207 presents which would be equivalent to finding one present every second of every minute of every hour of every day for 38 years, 6 months, and 18 days.
