Is anyone still using Miitomo? It was a fun app that seemed to burn bright and quick.

When I first downloaded it, it took a couple days for others to install and us all to find each other, but it seems like no one is using it anymore.

Part of its charm was in the questions it asks you, but I wonder if that's also part of its downfall. If I have a random thing I want to post to a social network, I go to Twitter and/or Facebook and post it. Miitomo doesn't work that way, so I'm not as inclined to use it when "inspired."

What are your thoughts? Will Miitomo continue its initial popularity, or will it dwindle as people try it and then move on to something else?

I head back every couple days. I think it's a fun thing to do every so often but I don't go back many times a day anymore. I wish I could be friends with people yet for some, get less notifications from what they say.

Hopefully Nintendo adds more social and gamey elements to it because it's a good first drop and I do like it.

I've literally answered all the available non-repeating questions so it kinda lost its charm.

Plus it gamifies adding tons of friends, and if you do that you don't see the people you really care about, and if other people are doing that nobody sees your stuff.

Some things are really neat though. I'm hoping the 1.1 version might fix a few things. As it stands now I don't care much about it anymore.

Same boat. It had lost its charm.

Nice pic! Speaking of, the option of composing pics is pretty cool. The whole thing is a neat idea, but there does need to be another hook. Miitomo Drop is shady as f$&@. I'd be curious to know how many people have actually spent real money so far.

If Miitomo was just slightly more like Animal Crossing, I'd be on it more often.

@Will_Ball are you one of the six or seven Wills on my friends list?

scrypt: I've won quite a few outfits with Miitomo drop, but I may be in the minority here. That said, you can buy in game tickets and gold and I am not sure I know anyone who's bought anything in game but I bet many have. I'd love to see how many and how much but I am not sure if Nintendo posts those numbers.

I tried for that Ninja sword for like 18 tickets worth, and never got it. I got a ton of other stuff though.

I got the ninja sword on my very last ticket lol

I was bummed because I got the Ninja tree suit but not the hat. I still have a bunch of tickets and gold. I buy things here and there but seem to love hoarding digital currency....

You know.... for the ummm.. upcoming Miitomo-pocalypse. Some people will be roasting rats over an open flame but not this guy!
