Maia to Issho is a live wallpaper app for Android phones, featuring a character named Maia. There are a few other widgets like Tohoku Zunko and Froyo-tan which stay on your home screen as your friends. But Maia to Issho is a little different. You can actually communicate with Maia. A free trial version has just been released.
After installing the app, you have to make Maia to Issho your wallpaper on your phone.
This is how it looks on the screen. You can see the character has already begun speaking. Double tap on Maia for conversations and events. Double tap on the cat, Kuro, for changing the settings.
There is a sort of a story, and as you move further in evens and conversations you'll find out more about it. This free trial version, however, contains only the first four chapters.
But the main focus here is on improving Maia's knowledge through talking with her. The conversation is mainly in Q&A style.
During gameplay sometimes the app shuts down when another app starts running. I don't know if it's because of the compatibility with my phone or just a bug due to its early release. I believe it will be fixed shortly.
Although the app still needs some polish, talking to a character on your smartphone wallpaper is a new experience.
