Works Perfectly

So, I was skeptical at first. I didn’t know if this app would work as intended. But, since the puppy shredded some of my Amiibo cards for Animal Crossing, I absolutely needed a way to make more chew-proof backups!

This app works like a charm. It is incredibly simple to use! You can identify what a tag is, and write a new one! With little effort, I was able to get a back-up copy of my cards, and replace the mangled unusable ones. The developer is super responsive on Twitter, and the app has been smooth sailing and bug-free. All you need are some dirt-cheap NFC tags (stickers and PVC coin shapes are popular), they are one time writeable, but you can use them as many times as you need to after that.

Donate and support the author! This app does exactly what it says it does, and is super easy to use. :)

Easy to use after figuring it out!

I’ve been looking into making amiibos of my own because I didn’t want to spend NMTs looking for my favorite animal crossing villagers! I just want to say that the app is definitely user friendly ONCE you’ve uploaded the necessary amiibo files. I first saw Amiiboss on Twitter and a mutual said that they would be willing to help me figure the app out - screenshots and their explanation definitely helped. I’ve been writing my own amiibos since - saved me a TON of money. I took off one star because I thought the website instructions weren’t that easy to understand? Maybe screenshots would help, just like how it helped me. I did reach out to the developer’s twitter for any questions and they responded pretty fast, which I was pleasantly surprised about!!! So if you have any questions, reach out to them and ask them, don’t struggle on your own to figure it out.

Works and is easy to use

I just got this app today after discovering how to make my own amiibos and it’s so awesome! I saw that some reviews complained about getting the app started but it’s honestly very simple. I reached out to the dev on Twitter and they responded very fast and were very helpful with getting me all set up to use the app. On that note, the app itself is very easy to use and has a huge database of amiibos from various series to choose from.
I also noticed complaints about donations. The dev does NOT ask for money. Making a donation is your own choice. I personally donated because the app works and I like to support the creator for their hard work.
Definitely recommending this to all my Animal Crossing friends!
