Stop being anti-online gaming. We expect in game chat, steady frame rates, and the ability to easily invite friends to play online. It’s not difficult.
Add a messaging/invite system!!!! 1/5
Nintendo please answer every gamers request and add a messaging system to the switch!!! Doing so will make it so so SO simple to cooperate and join forces with other people!
Not only that, but if you add an invite system (that limits player invites to 3-5 every 5 minute to prevent spamming), then the players can see what their friends are doing, and directly join them from said invite. Judging from experience, whenever I got an invite from my friends on my PS4, I was able to join them right away, but with this system as it is, there is the trouble of spending 30+ minutes trying to figure out how to start a match with my friends on one of my favorite games.
All I’m saying is that if there were any improvements you can make to the system, it would be this very crucial and simple step to developing a better way to game on the switch. Thank you for anyone who read this, and anyone from Nintendo please keep this is mind.
It’s a good app to talk on online games but the real question is when are you going to put Netflix on the Nintendo Switch?!??
Why Nintendo 1/5
I understand Nintendo has never been good with online stuff, but this is just bad. I thought that if by some chance some of my switch friends had this app we could chat whenever we want but it only allows you to chat when you’re in some sort of a lobby. Oh yeah not to mention it only supports two games. Big L Nintendo. Hopefully when you partner with Xbox we will get some better online service cuz this is trash. Not only does it not work well and is picky, but nobody uses it. Shame! Shame! Shame 🔔🔔
Rocket league 3/5
Please make voice chat for rocket league!!🏎💨
Good but something is missing. 4/5
Overall the games seems good but I need to give you some advise can you please add Minecraft on it I would really appreciate it, thank you!
Just sayin 5/5
Ok who ever makes the splatoon 2 and 1 and you make a splatoon3????💓💓💓💓💓💓💓💓💓😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
My account can’t be used but I was looking for my info for 2 days
Garbage chat system persists 1/5
Only about 10 games from the entire collection of games released are compatible with voice chat...use a 3rd party chat...
Cmon man 2/5
Just add to the system we want headsets and stuff too 😳😤
Awesome but accounts are irritating! 4/5
Everything is great but if you stay for a week or so, you have to sign back in again. That’s so dumb! That’s my complaint!
This is trash 1/5
By Muhamed zendeli
It does not let you sign in for some reason and keeps showing you pictures to click but when I click the right picture it just says password incorrect😡
*Insert title here* 1/5
By Ye boí jesus
If Nintendo is gonna make us pay for online then they could at least give us a better way for voice chat than this
It’s ok. Could be great. 2/5
Voice chat should be native on the Switch.
The app should be used for NES manuals (PLEASE add these, Nintendo), extra screen functions of games, text chat, adding friends, etc. Think of the Xbox home screen (or app). All that extra console stuff could be on the app. Only have a Switch? Fine; you can do all of the above. Use the app, too? Great. Now you can do all of the above with a separate screen while you’re playing the switch. And do everything except play games when your switch isn’t with you.
You can’t sign in 1/5
The keyboard disappears after you input text then click out of the text box.
Seriously, why 2/5
By annoying things hater 101
I can’t even play it because it needs a credit card number. My parents won’t let me play it because of this. Why is this even necessary?! Please change
To young? 1/5
I hate this because I made my account and can’t use this app because I’m “to young” can you fix this??!!
Party chat 3/5
Can u put more game options like fortnite and stuff cause vc while docking doesnt exist for some reason and its annoying
Login troubles 1/5
When logging in with my link Nintendo switch account it tells me that I need to link my Nintendo switch account to my Gmail which I’ve already done I have deleted the app and re-download the app and receive the same problem every time.
I can't even skip the info at the opening screen. When I press skip or finish looking at the info the app crashes.
creative but really stupid. 1/5
By 🐺Canis Dirus Lover🐺
Why can’t Nintendo just be like Xbox and ps4 and have parties?
I mean seriously! Just add a tab to the user page, that has options for inviting people, creating parties, and joining parties!
And please don’t make an age limit.
By Switch kid
I use audio chat ALL the time and I got switch online FREE on amazon prime using twitch or “twitch prime” over all great app
Doesnt open half the time 1/5
Crashes on open
I think it’s a good way for voice chat 5/5
The apps good i love the Nintendo switch online membership and the app is a good way to use voice chat
I need to get a new device to use app??? 2/5
I've been wanting to use the new Smash features on this app and...oh? There's a new update? Well I'll just upda-nope. Unfortunately, the new updates require iOS 10. Being one of the few people using gen 1 iPad mini (got no money to spend on a phone) I can't do any of the things others can because they have something better than what I do. My only hope is that Bluestacks will actually run on my PC someday and I can use the app on there...
Great but misses a few 3/5
By bdz battle
It’s a great app but doesn’t support all games that you could use a mic with like fortnite and other games so it doesn’t help to the fullest
How come I can’t get myself an account because of my account age
This is supposed to be a review for the app, but why would make us pay to play online? I got the switch to also play with my friends freely, but then suddenly, it's $20 to even do so. This is rubbish. Nintendo should've done what it has been doing for years now.
Severely lacking 2/5
It’s pretty much a mic app when you’re playing online. Can’t access captures, friends, anything really.
I’ve had it since it came out on the App Store and I figured I’d give it time but there’s really been no QoL updates.
App not working 1/5
It’s not working
Does the job for me 4/5
Dunno why the rating is so low. Probably people complaining about how they have to pay to play online. It’s not even that expensive! 5 dollars per month is a bargain compared to certain App Store apps that charge 8 dollars PER WEEK. Now onto the real app...
I use this app mainly for Splatoon 2 purposes. It’s really handy getting to see the current stages, Salmon Run rotations, etc when I’m away from my Switch. The shop is a really nice touch, getting to order gear from Annie and getting in delivered straight to my Switch. The wins/losses thing is nice too. SplatNet 2 has lots of handy features I like to use. I recommend this if you’re a Splatoon 2 player... and a Smash Bros player as well I guess, since there’s a service for that game too...
My sad life 5/5
By splatoon2 fan
When I just got it,I thought there was something wrong about the app ,so then I after I read I got sad because I really wanted to buy gear for my octoling. :(
No good at all 1/5
This just isn’t convenient at all because you might as well use the included headphone jack and plug in headphones with a mic
More use for games it’s designed for 4/5
By The crimson blur
I really do like the spirit team creation features for ultimate and the recording side for splatoon but if this review get in the app developers hands I would recommend having more immersive features added for support for the games like guides or character stats or how in game tip are read through loading screen as well as update history so it’s one place they can quickly access instead of going to a website and waiting for people to sift through it and for spirit team building it would be helpful for it to display descriptions on what the effects do and if they stack or not and I would suggest that for any games that are supported by this app if DLC is made available details can be seen through the app as well as game purchase like how on the console you a wishlist or prepurchase option it’d be convenient if the eshop and its contents are visible through the app just like how Sony and Microsoft do with their apps in relation to their platforms you can buy the games and dlc using a mobile cellular device without being restricted of not have WiFi connections to make purchases for the console whether you have it in your hand or not
Not good, but not bad 4/5
The specialty thing for some games is great. It is just only on 2 games. Online is okay. Smash can be really rough sometimes, but Splatoon is fine. The nes games are great, but please make a way that we can get super mario world. Whether it be through the eshop or the online thing just make it available. This could be a really good service just needs a lot of work, but hey we have punch out and Kirby along with the first 4 super Mario bros games. What else could we need from nes (so start on snes games or make them available. Also why does everyone complain about voice chat being on a phone. It works fine, but it drains battery fast.
Good but 1 thing 5/5
Nintendo switch online is better than what people say Here something to make better is more Nintendo consoles like snes Nintendo 64 and game cube and maybe more
Stuff like Tetris 99 but that’s amazing online service
Waste of time, waste of memory, waste of money 1/5
I hate this thing already, and I haven’t even used it. The thing is, I CAN’T. I wanted to get this to chat with my friends, but I can’t even log onto my Nintendo Switch Account.
The Nintendo Switch doesn’t even have a mic, which other Nintendo Consoles do. The one thing that makes it better than my Wii U is that it is at least more portable than a Wii U. The only games that are actually worth buying on this console are the ones that are favored by Nintendo, such as Super Mario Oddesy, MarioKart 8 deluxe, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, or Fortnite. I have problems in games like Minecraft: The audio on Fortnite acts all choppy, and the lag on Minecraft: Especially when I’m online is dumb. I can’t even kill a simple Zombie when using the best items because of this. The game freezes my position and then I end up being DEAD because of the lag. I try playing offline and you take 5 hours to load 1 chunk. My Xbox One can load about 1,000,000 chunks in under a half hour. And my phone has 64 Gigabytes, not even being at 1/8 of the whole memory. My switch has 32 Gigabytes, and it used up all of the memory in less than half a year. Is the Nintendo Switch a joke to you?! Seriously.
I can’t use the app because you force me to verify my account by selecting something irrelevant to what I am doing. Even if I have entered the correct password, you waste my time. It appears incorrect and I have to uninstall the app because it is a HUGE waste of memory and time.
Also, if you aren’t Nintendo, one quick message: If you ACTUALLY think that this is a good thing, then you must be drunk all the time, because this console has only half the memory of my Iphone 8 Plus. This phone could last a decade without losing half it’s memory (Memory of a switch), but the switch can only last like a few months without losing all of it’s memory. I only use the switch because it’s the only portable console I own.
I also read someone else’s review, and I actually agree with them. Even if it’s pre-written, at least make the ability to send messages. Nintendo? More like NintenJOKE. Also, if you want to be more serious about the next console, just hope that people will still want to play on the Nintendo consoles after this piece of garbage. Those who have to get this just to play with others, just a message: It may be cheap for one user, but it is a giant waste of money. You can’t even use the features to do what was expected. The nintendo switch is not good. The only cool idea that somebody had was to make storage cabinets out of Plywood and their TV, making a GIANT NINTENDO SWITCH, which actually looks better than the console itself, looking just like - It’s pretty obvious by now - A GIANT NINTENDO SWITCH.
Friends list 1/5
I wish I could see on my phone my friends list, who’s online, and the games they’re playing, just like I can on my switch and the ps4 app.
Horrible solution but great features 1/5
Just take it off the AppStore and forget it ever existed. We need proper voice chat and party functionalities.
Uhhhhhhhhh add Minecraft 2/5
Well I just got Minecraft on Nintendo Switch and I feel like I want to make friends but I can’t talk only in chat but that takeaway my time to play
Don’t waste your time.
GO USE DISCORD 1/5
It’s just bad. It just bad. Look at Xbox alive or psn for their offers. Yes those are $60 year but they offer more than Nintendo. If you think this is 5 stars your just wrong, your just wrong. OK GO USE DISCORD APP TRUST ME! Discord is free to use and you get to make your own CLUBS, YOU CAN TEXT ON DISCORD, VOICE CHAT any time. On Nintendo app you don’t get none of that. and only 6-8 games only work with the Nintendo app out of almost 300 games require to play online. since 9-19-18 only 4 games to the app I included that in the 6-8 games early
Nice concept by crashes 3/5
App keeps crashing middle of use. On iphone XS
Why use an app to voice chat? 1/5
Put voice chat in game. My god even the PlayStation Vita has voice chat.
List games I don’t own. Really poor featureless app.
Love it. Please add... 4/5
I love the parental control it provides. Please add an add extra time option for the time limit function. This would provide incentives to my kids. You can play more when you have done xyz.
What's the point? 1/5
Other then wanting a one star review?
Only partially good 2/5
By Masked King
Splatoon now has a yearly fee, yippee go screw yourself
This App is GARBAGE 1/5
By Pretty Bizzy Flizzy
Come on, Nintendo!!!! I spent 300$ on this and for what? A terrible voice chat system that needs an app to work??? An app that crashes over and over and is poorly designed? I grew up with the Nintendo 64 and Gameboys and u guys were doing GOOD!!!! And that was YEARS ago! Its 2019 and you guys have EXTREMELY FELL OFF. This is ridiculous. Fix your app!!!!!!
Where’s the content 2/5
This app had barely any content. Only suitable for 2 apps, that’s solution and smash bros. Voice chat capabilities when you join again (that’s a pretty cool feature) but undoubtedly a disappointing application. This app should display achievements for games, ability to watch captured content, ADD SMASH BROS RECORDING!!!!! That game is undoubtedly THE best app to record clips. All in all, love you Nintendo
