Where is the better business bureau? This company is accepting payment for a program that they know does not work. How about a lawyer looking into this for a class action suit for FRAUD!
Customer support is no where to be found. They don't respond, despite several attempts? Do not waste your money on this product, you have been warned!
Not worth the One Star I was forced to rate it!!!
Product no longer works. when you go to accept requests, it does not find any. even if you have many, yet still has the gall to make you post a link to it on your profile.
After using giftbox for quite awhile w/o probs, it suddenly stopped detecting gifts sent to me in Farmville. Sent msg to botoholic, received auto reply that my request was being looked at. After no contact, I sent another msg asking the status of my request. Once again "...being looked at yada yada yada..." Uh huh, yeah ... to date, nothing (person or bot) from botoholic.
I think botoholic has turned off the lights, locked the door and left the country. Read the other reviews and don't waste your time. I'm looking around for another product.
This used to be a great app for getting all those farming chores done when you're busy but it hasn't worked since March 2012!
No emails or requests to the company are replied or responded to, no contacts with subscribers on status of their product have been received, and despite the product no longer working, they are STILL accepting orders and taking your money. That last one may be the most criminal and unscrupulous action of them all. They should NOT be still selling a product that doesn't work and hasn't worked for quite some time!
whilst i have certainly benefited from a working version of farmmaster for my farmville game, it stopped working in march 2012 telling me it needed an update that botaholic were aware off and if i waited 2 hours it would be working. 5months later im still waiting for it to be fixed. the giftbox facility is great and i've not had any issues with that but im really dissappointed with farmaster. the game administrators have been notified several times by myself about the loss of the gaming master facility but nothing has been sorted.
NO REPLY TO SUPPORT REQUESTS FOR MONTHS
I BOUGHT PAID PROGRAM GIFTBOX+
IT QUIT WORKING... I MADE MULTIPLE REQUESTS FOR SUPPORT, THEN SENT COMPLAINTS ABOUT BEING IGNORED, THEN SET REQUESTS FOR A REFUND...
THINKING ABOUT MAYBE STARTING A CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT... THEY RIPPED US ALL OFF.
An iffy bot. Some times works but normaly not for long. I stopped using it about a month ago when i bought the sims bot and it didnt even pick up the stuff while I was "home" tried it for about a week or two with no success.
Redownloaded it becosue they had a special offer of VIP for 4.99 to get all of the BOTS. I figured what the heck its 5 bucks and i dont have to do that annoying pick up what you just freaking clicked stuff.
Worked decent on Cityville (booted twice in 30 minutes but thats normal for Zanga games) until i tried visiting neighbors, Freezes over and over.
Update now if you want but realize you will not be gettting a flawless bot by any means.
This used to work perfectly for Farmville. Now it throws "critical connection errors." Help Desk is a joke. I opened a ticket SIX MONTHS ago for another issue that was never answered and still shows as "pending." I laughingly opened another two weeks ago, and still nothing. It's a waste of money, and their customer service sucks.
Botoholic used to work for Cafe World and Mafia Wars 2. It has since stopped working. It does nothing in Cafe World..does not serve dishes, clean stoves, visit neighbors, nothing. Does not work for Mafia Wars 2 either except that it quickly collects rewards. If you try to visit neighbors automatically, your avatar just runs around after completing five tasks, but never jumps to the next neighbor.
I opened a help desk ticket three days ago...nor reply yet.
I had been using this for months to collect gift requests for all of the games that I play and now it won't work. I have downloaded and reinstalled and get nothing. If you had asked me a month ago I would have raved, but now it is useless.
If I didn't have Botoholic I would have stopped playing Botoholic ages ago! Just the simplefact that it collects all the stupid pop ups makes it worth its weight in gold.
I have got around 5 friends using it also and they to would rate it 5 stars the same as me.
People are saying on here they get no support? I always get an answer to my questions? They actually answer a lot quicker than Zynga!!!
As for the visiting neighbours not working, well thats because of the news stand. It will collect from any neighbour that doen't have the news stand anymore. If you think you can design a programme that visit your neighbours and communicate with the news stand aswell then good luck! LOL!!!!
This really is the most ultimate tool you will ever have to play your games with. I only play FrontierVille (or Pioneer Trail as it's now called) but I can't stress enough, I wouldn't play at all if I didn't have Botoholic as the gameplay is just to annoying without it - 'click click click click click!!!' I think my button was going to come off!
I just hope that Botoholic is here to stay as they did a server upgrade today and I paniced like mad because I thought they had been taken off line! I should also add that I contacted support about this (while the server was down) and got a response in less than 80 minutes, so those that say there is no support????????????
Thanks Botoholic! Your the greatest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have had the Botoholic for -2- years now. The Frontierville bot ceased working immediately. It does NOT visit neighbors as promised. If you are able to get it to actually visit your neighbor without timing out, it will immediately crash as soon as you click for it to do a task. It is much faster to manually visit them than to keep reloading the bot repeatedly.
As for the Cafe bot, well it quit serving food several months ago. It will cook the food but frequently freezes and quits and has to be refreshed over and over again just to cook. I have written to support repeatedly to no avail. I have yet to receive a reply or any acknowledgement whatsoever.
This program has been uninstalled and re installed over and over. The browser and flash are always current and the Bot still refuses to work.
I would caution anyone looking to purchase this program to just chuck their $$ in the trash. You would get a better response from that than from purchasing this program. The Bot doesn't work, and their 'so called support system" doesn't exist.
This is a bad program and waste of money. In the amount of time that you spend trying to get it to work you could have done the task yourself and been done.
I have no idea why people write bad reviews about this site. The idea and application is simply amazing and it still does work! For almost 2 years already!
I recommend this application to everyone who wants to enhance their gaming experience.

Been using it for several months and loved it, mainly for Farmville yet for the over a week now..........it won't even load. Botoholic won't start on Farmville anymore, keep getting the sand glass icon which indicates that it's loading but stays stuck on it for hours. I have purchased both the VIP package, along with everything that they offer and am now disappointed. They need to fix these issues Pronto, otherwise I'm just going to endorse someone else.
I only use this for two games. It does basic tasks on Farmville, but I can do the same things faster using the combine. It visits some low level neighbors, on occasion, but frequently will freeze and stop (of course, these are neighbors that don't play the game, so I have to still manually visit all my high level active neighbors.) Sometimes it won't visit any neighbors. For Frontierville, it won't do anything for you on your homestead and it seldom successfully visits neighbors. I've had a support request open for three months and have received NO reply. In the past, on other support requests, the standard response is to BLAME others.
The Giftbox + Pro claims it receives gifts and accepts wall bonuses. It may read them, it doesn't accept them.
I would not recommend that anyone spend money on this program.
I have used it (Botoolic) with farming master for a while, but in the past month I began having to refresh it frequently just to get it to work again. It stops in the middle of doing any harvesting, plowing, planting, or visiting neighbors. Basically freezes up and quits functioning. Now (for about two weeks now) it barely funcitons at all. I also use the Gift Box+Pro...which was great for a while also, but no longer appears to be collecting any bonuses from my neighbors game posts on my wall. To validate this, I have gone straight to my farm to check the number of gifts currently in my box, then run Gift Box+Pro..and the number doesn't change when I return to my farm. Neither Botoholic or Gift Box seem to work anymore. They are definately broken or need some severe help. I have uninstalled and redownloaded both, to no avail over and over again. I think it's time to start looking for something else superior to these. Save your money for something else.

This tool is just absolutely amazing. I've started using it a year ago and they constantly keep adding products for new games. I'm getting all products for free now as I've applied for VIP membership and I can't imagine life without BOTOHOLIC anymore.

Well only got all the products last night, used for two hours, yes TWO HOURS and now none of them work, so as far as I am concerned it is a SCAM, ripping people off, what a pile of poo..... I liked the product alot when working, and how anyone can say it works fine for them, because I have had nothing but problems, Even got the VIP Package, and the gift box plus don't work don't collected bonus any more, really disappointed with this company right now, we as couple don't have much money me being disabled and have to stay at home, hubby thought be nice to treat me as play so many games.
I don't understand the previous accusations of the bot being a scam, I've been using the Farmville bot for over a year and it works great, recently I upgraded to all of the bots and they work near flawlessly. My only complaint, which is minor, is that some manual clicks are required. For example, in farmville bot, to visit your neighbors automatically you have to start it by clicking and visiting 1 neighbor manually, then it does the rest! So, 4.5 stars from me!
