I was skeptical when I first heard about this app, but I have won and had some five or six prizes shipped to me so far. The machines are Japanese style, so instead of trying to pick up the prize to have it deposited into a win chute, you are usually trying to push or flip the prize off a platform using the claw. So, be aware this generally means most prizes require several plays in order to win a prize. I suggest watching someone else play a machine for a bit before diving in. If you do win a prize, you have 30 days to have it shipped to you, which is good because they offer free shipping every seven days, so you can try to save up some winnings and not have to pay for the expensive shipping from Japan.
There is some occasional lag when I play, but generally everything runs pretty smoothly, and I have a lot of fun playing, even when I don't win!
5つ星のうち1.0The live stream is so laggy it's almost unplayable.
Aside from most of the room being full the live stream lag makes it near impossible to snag any prizes accurately. Like you think you're all perfectly lined up with the prize, the stream will freeze, and the crane will be butting up against the side of the wall. Just save your money for a real claw machine, no lag in real life to rob you of any prizes.

I got the Toreba app because I knew I'd waste plays using my laggy laptops, and figured the app would offer better performance speed-wise. I was right, and the app works great, but there is one problem: They only give you three machines to play from. At first it was four, but one of them disappeared from the roster and I haven't seen it since. What's the point in buying points when you don't even have the same luxury of choice as other users? I even ended up wasting five dollars in a vain attempt to play on my awful laptops for the sake of variety. As expected, no dice.
What's frustrating is that I see other people on the web using the app (albeit probably on different devices), and yet they have hundreds of choices to choose from, just like the website. Why them, but not us?!
If you want more than three or four machines to play from, this app isn't for you.
It's sad, because I was really hoping to really get into Toreba and win some prizes. 😔
