Yes, it is used... actually quite a bit. Generally, not by developers, but by users.
It is used in commercial software (e.g. gINT)

Should you use it? Probably not.

Should gINT use it? Probably not.

When should you use it? If you have to give a database to a non-programmer who has Access installed on their machine or some other rare use case where is makes sense.

I've actually use (yes present tense) an Access front end to process some SQLite files and it does what I need no fuss no muss.
