This is so tiny and cute. I used to drag my Tamagotchi with me everywhere when I was young and I cried when the thing grew up and flew away. I'm rather happy to see something inspired by it on iOS. I've been looking for this exact thing ever since I bought an iDevice.

However, one thing that bothers me a bit about the UI is that I don't think there's any need for the Select button and the arrows flanking it since we can tap on the icons instead. I think it's intended to emulate Tamagotchi's control scheme, but the UI looks a bit cluttered with it there.
I'd also like Smarts to be re-labeled as Intelligence and Active changed to Activity. And would infant/newborn/baby be more appropriate than child as a first stage? These are both just semantics and I'm not all that fussed about them, but I believe they merit mention.
The iTunes info looks somewhat lacking in content, which I think is something that needs expansion. I always read those before purchasing an app, and if I didn't read up on this on TA, I'd be a tad hesitant about buying it.

I'd love to see updates that let us interact with Hatchi more directly, such as minigames [presumably ones that Hatchi plays better or worse in accordance with its stats?], a wider selection of food and activities that affect its overall health and evolution path, and more detailed stats [personality, gender, weight, food and activity preferences, et cetera]. And more evolution paths; I don't think you can ever have enough of those.
