    "Just thought this would be a cool app idea.. a virtual pet that runs in the background!! It could easily be very simple or something very detailed! If someone knows programming i'm willing to help with ideas!" - Moosh

    doesn't necessarily have to run in the background though cause that would drain batteries, but yea, an app that acts like a tomagatchi or digivice.

    The easiest way to do that, i'm good at pseudo code, but not the actual coding. So you creat the basic app, with the aging and stats of the little guy. Maybe make a creature selector, so people can create their own creatures. And once you close the app, it saves the stats, or runs in the backround well the ipod is on. And once the ipod goes into power saving mode, the stats are saved (as well as the time it was turned off).

    Once the ipod is woken up, the app loads back up, and uses math through the clock, determing how long it was shut off for, and then ajusting the stats accordingly, so it would have taken a crap this many times, got this hungry, wether it slept or not, etc.

    and then you can use what Ants uses, and well your using your ipod, if your little dude needs some attention either an icon can pop up, or he can walk onto your screeen.

    Thats just my 2 cents

    this is a brilliant idea and I can't believe it hasn't already bin thought of but as usual tamogochis get quite boring real fast so it would have to have lots of features
    maybe evolving creatures aswell as normal animals.
    how about customization of your very own creature?
    if this was going to be done it would have to be done well and look realistic

    I think one of the pets should be an iPod Touch, and you feed it 3rd party apps to keep it alive or something

    This would make a great app, something to really stick too, cos most apps are just one timers, yoj download em n try em n get sik of em, but if it ran in the background and was always different with scenarios etc it would be ace, would defo take a place on my spribgboard!
