1.  Spin the Daily Booster Wheel

King games recently added a much welcomed aid to the ever-expanding world of Candy Crush, the Daily Booster Wheel. The Daily Booster Wheel can help you stockpile boosters that are helpful when stuck on a level for a few days. The bonus is that the boosters are completely free, and the wheel can be spun once every day. The best way to take advantage of this feature is to log in daily, spin the wheel, and save up for a particularly difficult level.

2.  Think Ahead

To get the most out of your moves, it is important to plan ahead. Look for potential spots to drop pieces to make them special candies. At times you may need to think a few moves ahead to get the pieces where they are needed. With some careful thought, and a little planning, you'll have more special candies than you can handle.

3.  Don't Fall For The Flashing Candies

If you wait too long to make a move, Candy Crush will reveal an available move to you by flashing candies. In some instances this can be helpful if you are having trouble finding any moves at all, but in most cases, there is probably a better move to make. Don't fall for it.

4.  Combine a Color Bomb and a Striped Candy for hard to reach jellies

Combining color bombs with striped candies is one of the most useful moves in the game. The combination will turn every piece of that color into a striped candy. This can be helpful to clear out those last few jellies, or to get rid of that annoying fudge fast. To make the trick even more useful, do not combine the two right away, but play a few extra moves to gather more of that candy's color. Bonus tip: a striped candy will always go in the direction of it's stripes.

5.  Get Rid of that Fudge Immediately 

Nothing can ruin a round of Candy Crush quicker than fudge. When it comes to fudge, the best advice is to be aggressive and eliminate it quickly. Note that fudge won't spread if you can get rid of at least one square per turn. Bonus tip: A striped candy will eliminate fudge not only through the line where it's launched, but the lines on either side of it as well.

And there you have it. While Candy Crush can be aggravating at times, with some careful planning and these helpful tips, you'll be surpassing your friends in no time.
