why cant they just put it for ipod right now im sure it would gain a lot of popularity. Bandai has grown very ignorant these days of what people want. -_-

 

It has been mentioned quite a number of times already - an iOS version will be released shortly.

Their Twitter page is full of tweets replying to other users that have complained about it not being out on iOS. They're doing all they can to release it but you must remember that even after it's submitted to Apple there's usually a 2-week period where it needs to be verified.

I also asked them how often we can expect updates and whether it'll be released outside US/Canada. They replied:
"The initial program for the new brand focused on US/Canada.  As it succeeds, we hope to expand for everyone to enjoy. We will update periodically to provide additional features to our fans, who have shown so much interest in Tamagotchi L.i.f.e."
So I'm hoping the P2 will soon become available. I think I read somewhere that they'll be updating the app every 2 months, but I can't confirm this.

If they were to update it to implement the P2, I think they'll probably make there be a chance of receiving the egg from P2 rather than P1, which then hatches into P2 characters. I'm also guessing they'll add more wallpapers and shells, hopefully the wallpapers will actually be actual wallpapers from previous Tamagotchis rather than patterns of flowers and that sort of thing... Patterns that haven't ever actually been in a Tamagotchi. And if they add new shells... I'd like to see shells from other Tamagotchis, perhaps some connection series Tamagotchis.

Still no download in the UK - I just checked! This is so annoying...even if it's not really their fault, they could at least apologise for it not being available internationally. :(

"The initial program for the new brand focused on US/Canada. As it succeeds, we hope to expand for everyone to enjoy."
So, basically, they've not announced whether they're going to release it internationally yet, but it's certainly possible... But for now, the app is designed for the US/Canada market, and they'll release it elsewhere if it's worth it.

They don't always reply to emails, and usually their email replies are automated. I contacted them through Twitter, it's much easier to get a reply there.

Maybe It's Not Bandai's Fault, Maybe it's Apple being slow on releasing the App. Apple isn't perfect either. Just saying, don't put ALL the blame on BanDai.

 Yes i suppose you have a point purimatchi. im just all flared up bout all this. I'm still skeptical on all of these things bandai is releasing. i've looked at a whole bunch of pictures from the app and it looks really cool. I'm just very impatient when it comes to tamagotchis because they are my favorite thing. I wouldn't be surprised if they released the app for apple on November 23rd the anniversary of tamagotchi, because thats when all the major things have been happening lately.

Is it the Virgin or Cricket One V? or is it the GSM (SIM Card) version?

Well, I got the non-Google Play version, and I really dislike it. I think it's supposed to simulate a Tamagotchi P1, but it doesn't. It crashes and freezes after about 2 seconds of using it and it doesn't save the happy hearts (meaning that after it says full and I exit the game, if I go back on about a minute later, they're empty. And that's with a teenage character). It dies way too easily, within just 6 hours of neglect (again, with a teenage character). I don't know if the actual P1 is like this but if it is, I wouldn't be a fan of that either.

Well, the original P1 obviously didn't crash every two seconds, but it wasn't easy to take care of. They actually died pretty easily, if what I know is correct.

It crashes and freezes? Can you tell us what Android version is installed on your phone?

I'm guessing since the iPad has a larger screen, the sprites look too upscaled?
