I was doing some searching online and found this article.
It says the Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. App reached more than 2.5 million downloads 90 days after its release. Bandai is planning a re-creation of the Generation 2 toy as an update to the app. Bandai is also planning the release of a new app in early 2014 as a recreation of the Tamagotchi Angel.
I never realized the app was THAT successful. I prefer the actual Tamagotchis but it seems that they're evolving into apps.
