For those not aware of what Miitomo is, the smartphone app allows users to create and customize a Mii character and then sync up with others. Once the Mii character is created, users can then share it with others. Other Miis can then also ask your Mii questions which you can then answer and share with your friends.
Another part of the app, Miifotos, lets your Mii character be placed in any image on your smartphone. The app also includes a handy share button which allows users to upload their creation to social media sites.
Miitomo is a free download, but it does have an in-game shop where users can buy extra clothing and items with Miitomo coins. These coins can be purchased with extra money, but depending on how many you want can set you back quite a bit.
