A couple of nights ago I found the Tamagotchi L.I.F.E. app while randomly perusing the app store while lying awake in the middle of the night. I have been using the app for two days so far, and it inspired me to get a p1 egg from eBay (and now I am looking for my first p2 and tama connection, though I am not sure which version to get).
I agree with what everyone else has already said: the actual eggs are so much better than the app, but I am happy the app exists. I do feel like it is draining my battery. Maybe that's all in my head, or maybe it is because now I am checking my phone every 10 minutes.
I also downloaded the app on my iPad, but I ended up deleting it because 1) I wasn't ready to have more than one pet going at the same time and 2) it seems better suited for the small mobile phone screen. Once I get my actual eggs I will likely not keep up with the app.
After finding the app and buying an original egg, I then found this site. I'm excited to join the community! Hello!
UPDATE: Last night I was playing with the app, and I realized you can make the tamagotchi screen full size which does a few things: adds color to the original p1 and p2 characters, allows you to tap the setting you want rather than scrolling through the buttons on the original egg, and makes the whole thing bigger. I really like it! It makes more sense that the app would work in this way. After using this for a few days, the app doesn't seem to be draining the battery any more than usual. As an iPhone user, my only complaint is that it doesn't work with Game Center.
