So it could have a practical and helpful use and a game/fun use. It could be an interesting idea that a developer could take and run with or maybe there's even something out there like this already. If anyone really likes the idea and would like to create it, i have a whole gameplan layed out for the specifics. I'm just not too savvy on app making. Anyone else have thoughts on this?

Haha, I thought of that 2 minutes after I started playing MegaMan Battle Network (the original game for the GBA)!
Unfortunately, I don't know how to code. If I did, I would have made a PET app already. It's crazy that Capcom hasn't and isn't planning on ever doing it. It seems like such an obvious thing to make. MMBN was ahead of its time but now we have smartphones that are just like PETs from the games and anime and we have assistant-like programs like Siri and Google Now.
I'm seriously considering learning how to code and program AI bots just so that I can make a NetNavi program. It would be even cooler if I could make AI programs self aware but I don't think I could ever do that. If I ever learn to code I'll make the app and let you know ;P
I'm actually kind of interested on the "gameplan" you've got laid out
Maybe we've thought of the same things.
What I would not like to see this turning into is a fighting MMO. That would totally ruin the concept as NetNavis were supposed to be useful programs and not just toys.
