How?!?!?! I'm soooo stuck on this level, though its only been a couple of days it's doing my nut in.
Well done!
Sheer determination and lots of concentration I think! Now have no idea how to pass 137.

Eta..to create wrapped candies you need to get 5 or more candies in a T or L shape

Candy crush and song pop are my addictions
I love songpop until someone sends me today's hits or Glee and then I just want to weep!

I have been stuck on level 182 for a few weeks now, you got bombs & have to get 30,000 points in under 2 minutes. It really boils my pi$$, but is so damn addictive.
According to mine it only goes up to level 156

I have done a few levels by swapping a colour bomb(the brown one with dots) with a striped candy. it turns all the candies that are the same colour as the striped candy into striped candies and clears most of the jelly(if that's what kind of level you are on).
Also, if you swap 2 colour bombs, it clears every single candy on the screen(also good for jelly levels).


Still stuck on 147...

Wee tip, if you run out of lives go to settings, move date or time forward, go to game then go back and put time or date back to normal, this gives you full life's again, you can do this as much as you like

Could someone tell me if these apps automatically send requests to friends or does the person actually do it deliberately. I keep getting requests and wondered if I'm offending anyone by ignoring them.

The only apps I play on my phone or tablet are stuff like the coin push games, although Coins v Aliens is fun. Even when I do, it's either because I've found myself with time to kill or I'm traveling.

My gaming addiction is World of Warcraft and I even have it on my laptop that I take to work for any breaks I have (daily quests can usually take about 10 minutes or so). The problem with WoW is it's too easy to get sucked into it and a quick run to do the daily quests can easily spiral out of control the moment you see someone has something cool, look up the item on Wowhead and then realise you can get it through doing a quest chain. That quick run can turn into a couple of hours (especially the one I did the other week to get a flying mount which meant I had to collect scrolls from all over the continent). 20 minutes to write a macro to put the way points in, and then another couple of hours collecting the damn things.

One of my friends is a lecturer at a university and he said he was losing an average of 3 students a term due to their WoW addiction. Yes, I'll admit I have a WoW addiction, but at least I can knock it on the head when I need to get some sleep or do something else.

I'm a busy mum of two who works full time with a hectic social life so why oh why and I'm sitting up half the night playing frigging Candy Crush!!!

I've never been one to get into app games but this is addictive!

Anyone lose struggling with an online/app game obsession?
Fortunately I've never heard of it and it doesn't sound like something I'd have in my house.

Oooh, well done. I feel terrible that you've got 147 ahead of you. They've done it just to wind us all up, I'm sure of it!
