Free Mobile Apps for the ArcheAge Farmer

Adorable Yata Baby!

Now that I have my farmhouse complete in ArcheAge, I’m able to do something other than burn my labor points gathering the materials to build it. I’m starting to mess around with farming and trade runs, and have spent most this past weekend exploring what I needed to plant to finish which runs, what I needed to feed certain animals, and delved into aquafarming a bit (more on that later).

archeage-farming-appBefore I knew it, I had 7 or 8 different crops and trees growing between my two farms, along with the geese, chickens and yata. I suddenly found myself unable to mentally mark when all these different crops would mature. So, for my own sanity, I went to find a solution.

A few different free harvesting and farming apps did exactly what I needed: provided a place to keep track of all of my farming timers and alerted me when things were ready to harvest or tend.

Harvesting Timer for ArcheAge

Available on iOS. I downloaded this simpler app because I was just looking for a quick timer. This is great to handle most of your farming needs – from trees to plants to livestock.

Update: Since I’ve been using this app, the dev has been in direct contact with me (through comments on this post), and has been making great strides to bring more features. I really appreciate this communication and I’ve even more pleased to support this app as it continues to develop.

The Farming Timer for ArcheAge 

Available on iOS and Android. This app seems to have a lot of features, including timers, taxes, LPs, loyalty, and trade runs. I might try this one out and see if the added features are helpful.

Good luck!

  1. Hi Aywren! Thanks for taking a look at our Harvest Timer for ArcheAge iOS app. I am the developer of the app.

    One of our main goals for the app was making it simple and easy to use. We have an update in review now for improved internationalization support, and in the works after that is better support for harvesting mature trees and livestock. Hopefully that will address the issue you noted in your review.

    Thanks again! We always love to hear feedback and suggestions, good or bad. 🙂

    1. Hi Russell!

      Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. Your app is really a life saver, so I appreciate all the work you’ve put into it! I’m really stoked to hear you’ve got an update coming for mature trees and livestock — once that’s added, this app will do everything I need. I’ll be sure to edit my article to reflect the changes, too!

      Thank you again!

      1. Hi Aywren, just wanted to give an update. Version 1.2 of Harvest Timer for ArcheAge was released into Apple’s App Store last night. This version includes support for seed bundles, fruited trees and livestock collectables. It also includes an easy way to reset running or expired timers.

        Once again, thanks for taking the time to look at our app!

        1. Hi Russell! Thanks for letting me know – I saw the update this morning and was really excited to see the easy “Reset” timer!

          Since I’ve been playing AA a little longer at this point, I’ve found a few more features I’d like to request for your app.

          I’m using livestock coops and pens more often, and would love to see a timer for these. I’ve seen more folks using them on their farms, as well, now that they’ve become more available.

          Also, I’d love to see aqua farm items added, if possible! I’m manually inputting my coral and oyster times right now, but it would be great to have timers for these.

          Thanks again! I’ll be sure to update my post above and provide a positive review. 🙂

        2. Hello again, Russell!

          I saw that today’s update has added the aquatic plants and animal pens. Thank you so much for this! It’s working great for me! 🙂

  2. Hey Aywren!

    Nice article. I really hope you check out the original Farming timer for ArcheAge, though. I have been using it since beta, and it has resets, harvests and everything your asking for. I also use the tax calculator and a few maps. Its just awesome, and deserves the shoutout!

    I havent seen the other app until tonight, but it pretty much looks like a bleak copy. I wish devs made something new and cool, like an armory app, instead of making copies of something that already works great. We need armory apps and crafting apps!

    Keep up the good work with the site!
