Is your Android kind of boring? Do not worry, you can download Shimeji, an app that lets you have fun characters moving around the screen of your smartphone or tablet and you can play with them at any time.
Play with Miku, Neko, and more
Miku and Neko are the two characters that come by default with the app. You can activate them to be displayed on your device's screen whenever you want, climbing on the edges and playing no matter what application you are using. You will be able to interact with them, moving them where you want. And if you get tired, you can simply pull down the notification bar to turn them off.
Add adorable pets to your smartphone that will walk around your screen.
The application also has a store where you can download more characters for free or buy the most popular ones. There are over three hundred animated characters from your favorite anime, Internet memes, and video games, such as:
- Characters from the anime Naruto, Death Note, One Piece, or Bleach.
- League of Legends Heroes.
- Finn and Jake, Marceline, and Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time.
- Pikachu, Sonic, Ezio, Deadpool, Trollface, Link, Thor, and more.
Free users can have one or two pets on-screen, and through in-app payments, they can buy 4 more slots to have up to 6, plus special Shimejis packs.
