Miitomo; Nintendo on your cell

Today, Nintendo finally launched its first cellphone app, Miitomo. Miitomo has been described more as a social networking platform than a game (and a quirky one at that). Nevertheless, we are generally a bunch of unapologetic Nintendo fanboys who will likely give any free Nintendo game a whirl.

I've downloaded the app from the iTunes app store and designed by Mii (this is my third generation Mii, btw, starting with the Wii, then :Wii U: , etc.)

I'm not sure how to add friends if I'm not on Facebook, Twitter or do not encounter a like-minded user, but perhaps, I'll figure this out.

Are you keen on giving Miitomo some play? Have you downloaded it? Thoughts/tips?

Dumb question, probably, but does the Miitomo app require data? I don't have a data plan.

Just a minute, Red. I'll tell you after this screen is done: <_<

All right, thanks. I figured that would be the case.

I'm not liking this. You need other social media to add friends? Sorry, Nintendo, but you don't create a social media network to be reliant on others. I hope they can make this better; I'm kind of disappointed. :-/ I want to like it, but I can't really.

Other than you can't add existing friends from the Nintendo Network, I'm really enjoying it.

If anyone wants to add me you can follow my Twitter @kartmaster. I won't be offended if you unfollow after we're Miitomo friends. He he.

Followed you back. So then I could send you a Miitomo friend request.

Man, how is this the best way to add people!? And why am I not surprised, since it's Nintendo...

Hooray, kartmaster and I are miitomo friends. Sorry dude if it was getting a little weird there. Since you are my only friend and I am trying to figure this out, I was in your house (??) a while. It is strangely compelling, but a bit of a time killer!

@ Matt, Buddy: I'm now following you on Twitter (@bluedogrulez). Hoping to catch up with you both on Miitomo (and before I wear kartmaster out, lol!)

@bamboozled: what's your twitter handle?

Alright, I joined just now. I'm following Matt, Kartmaster (also Matt X_D ), Buddy, and BDR.

@TheBamboozled

EDIT: I dunno why, but it won't let me follow BDR. BDR, can you follow me and then I'll follow you back, and I'll tell you if that works?
EDIT2: I keep logging out, signing in, clearing cookies, but all I get is this:

I keep finding myself just saying, "Ok, I'll just answer one more question." Found myself playing this more than I expected.

It is oddly compelling. And strange as Nintendo's claims about "getting to know your friends better" sounded, I think I now know a bunch of stuff about you guys that I don't know about friends and folks I deal with every day.

I'm pretty sure thats one I setup back in 2007 but never used lol,

Still not 100% on this app but I too keep saying ok one more. The flower question (how many flowers/girlfriends) sums up what I think is wrong with it though. Reminds me of a question you would ask in junior school.

Speaking of questions for the young, my 7-year old daughter saw me playing it and was transfixed. She was begging me to let her answer, not really appreciating (or caring) her answers would be assigned to my persona. (No, Clarence is NOT my favorite cartoon, DOH). So I tried to make her a Miitomo account using her actual birthday . . . and it was rejected. Kids cannot have accounts. I guess Big N is really counting on those micro-transactions. . . .

I checked my friend requests and after I accepted Buddy and Kartmaster, it asked if I wanted to sent one to BDR because we had 3 mutual friends. :dance: BDR and I can be friends now!

EDIT: I think this is crossing the line:
