With this app, you can access game-specific services, view your online friends, and use voice chat during online play—all of which allow you to get even more out of online play. Note: A Nintendo Switch Online membership (sold separately) is required to use certain features of this app. ◆ Software with game-specific services:  ・ Splatoon™ 3    ・ Check the online status of friends playing Splatoon 3    ・ View detailed results from battles or Salmon Run    ・ Check the upcoming Stage Schedule  ・ Animal Crossing™: New Horizons    ・ Send custom designs made in Animal Crossing     titles for the Nintendo 3DS™ family of systems to     Animal Crossing: New Horizons    ・ Use your smartphone to input chat messages     for in-game communication    ・ Check whether your Best Friends are online  ・ Super Smash Bros.™ Ultimate    ・ View posted videos and images    ・ Queue up user-created stages for downloading to your game    ・ View notifications about upcoming events  ・ Splatoon™ 2    ・ View detailed results from battles or Salmon Run    ・ Check rankings and stage schedules ◆ View your online friends You can see which of your friends are online from your smartphone—and which games they're playing. You can even send friend requests right from the app! Note: Some friend features, like adding friends, can only be accessed from a Nintendo Switch system. ◆ Use voice chat during online play From this app, you can join in on voice chat while playing supported software online.

    By pls help mrs egg

  • Splatoon 3 replays 1/5

    By shlemas
    Viewing and downloading replays doesn’t work.
  • SplatNet Widget 4/5

    By Nicolas Shane
    The new Splatoon 3 widgets are cool, but if we could get a SplatNet widget to show all the available gear, that would be perfect.
  • Can u just add the message feature 2/5

    By eurqpg
  • 确实挺垃圾的 3/5

    By loloda-
    明明赚了不少钱 一个app都能做这么烂
  • It won’t let me sign in 1/5

    By ndjdbxjjdnd
    Every time I open the app it takes me through the process but when I get to the sight in and put in the password and information it says page isn’t working
  • Buggy 1/5

    By Samy99 54
    I can’t even login to my account without the app crashing!!!
  • 任天堂服务器 1/5

    By hjsnxbd
  • Please switch browser 1/5

    By Heididawn57
    If you sign in not through the app it works on chrome and not safari so please switch the browser used to sign in on the app to chrome because safari doesn’t work
  • Crashes 1/5

    By logan2136
    Crashes when you try to sign in
  • Crashes 1/5

    By Alisa Rosenbaum
    I am on iOS 14.4. The app crashes upon signing in, which means that the version of iOS doesn’t matter. I got this to get the exclusive items in Splatoon 3, and yet I can’t even get in.
  • Immediately crashes 1/5

    By JunGull
    iPhone XS on 16.0. Able to sign in but once that’s done it crashes the app.
  • When does it Update? 3/5

    By Unknown068
    For some context I got Splatoon 3 and so far I’ve loved it! But the Nintendo App isn’t very high quality, it hasn’t updated my story mode progress for ages!! I have no idea how to fix it… I really love the home screens. 😩
  • Unsure what it wants to be 2/5

    By JacobMcNally
    This app doesn’t seem to know what it wants to be and is consistent with the Nintendo Switch platform. Is it cooperative gaming? Is it a pitch to sign up for Nintendo online? It just has no practical application except as options that should have been integrated into the Switch. Voice Communication? Every other platform has it. Is it a store? Nope. You need to use your browser for that. Does it provide any Nintendo information? Nope. Just... what IS this app trying to do? Take up space. Don’t waste your time.
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By JakeAMc
    I’ve done everything to clear data for this worthless app. It doesn’t let me even sign in. I’m signed in on chrome as soon as it swaps to my browser to see “what’s wrong” for help. That’s top tier worthless. Absolutely. Worthless. Doesn’t even deserve a single star.
  • Terrible app 1/5

    By jrtbbh
    Won’t even let you login. Just crashes every time. I’ve tried 20 times in two days and no dice.
  • App is fine BUT… 1/5

    By Daawesomeman2
    The app used to work great but now all it does is crash whenever I try to log in to it!!! (Probably an issue with me, I am possibly on an iOS 16 beta, not sure at the time of writing this) PLEASE FIX THIS! (or help me fix it 😭🥺)
  • Crashes after logging in 1/5

    By osakaGaming1
    Doesn’t work crashes right away
  • It’s terrible 1/5

    By Ironstiker
    The connection never works, it always signs me out and randomly won’t let me sign in. And why if you want to use gamechat you have to use the terrible app
  • App crashes upon login 1/5

    By Anonymous Reviewer CS
    App crashes as soon as it tries to load after logging in. Not only is the app broken, but it’s entirely unnecessary and all the functionality of the app should’ve been available on the Switch itself.
  • Trash app 1/5

    By Allen S Holmes
    Can’t log in. Absolutely trash.
  • Great Customer Service 5/5

    By Leahbb2
    I don’t have the same phone so I can’t 2-step authenticate. When I click help, it just sends me to an error page. Update: I was eventually able to get a phone number to contact support. It was an easy process to have things reset and fixed. I could understand Andrea fine and she was super nice.
  • Doesn’t work at all 1/5

    By Gotmilk0112
    Keeps crashing as soon as I log in.
  • App not working 1/5

    By PriiMa_22
    I’ve been trying to log in and even changed my email and password multiple times and I still can’t log in.
  • Nintendo Switch needs upgrades 4/5

    By gizmo112312
    This is my review on the console and not the game since I am not subscribed with Nintendo Switch Online™️ I know this is not a review for the app but for the console but thanks for reading. Overall the console is really well but it needs some upgrades. I would like to be able to install other apps and streaming services such as the following; Roblox, HBO Max and Disney+. The console did not give me any problems except the console not found problem. I have been trying to fix that for 24 hours but I have fixed it but when I try to play Just Dance 2022 it says "console not found, must be detached to play." Meanwhile it was detached but it wouldn't let me play unless it was connected to the Switch. If Nintendo Switch Online was free i'd happily get it so I could play Animal Crossing New Horisons in peace. I know this is not a review for the app but for the console but thanks for reading.
  • Update? 2/5

    By PichuCutie
    For the past, I’d say, month now I haven’t even been able to open the app. Every time I try it prompts me to open the App Store and update to the latest version, but there is no update to install. The app worked fine before, though I hardly used it for much of anything, I was really looking forward to what may be in store for Splatoon 3 on the app as well, as you could order special gear for Splatoon 2. Here’s hoping this eventually solves itself.
  • Fun while it lasted 4/5

    By pugggylover
    If you have games that are supported, this is a cool app! My device’s hardware and OS is now too old to run this app anymore. But when it was able to, being able to see past Splatoon scores and order items from Splatnet, and use QR codes and chat features in ACNH was great.
  • Please read 4/5

    By harry yoshi
    Okay Nintendo you have a lot of explaining to do, I tried to get octoling expansion for free (bc I have a family membership) but it saying that I have to own it please fix this so I can play octoling expansion so I can get ready for Splatoon 3. I really need this. If you can’t, you’ve just lost a very old Nintendo fan ( I’m 14 and I’ve been your fan since I was 1 year old don’t do this to me Nintendo).
  • Splatnet2 is amazing!!! 5/5

    By cj342
    If you play splatoon 2 and want to see your stats, this is the perfect app for you.
  • bruh 1/5

    By marcus leory
    so much potential for this app but its so useless, to even use the voice chat you need to pay for nintendo switch online which makes this even more useless
  • certainly an app that has functions 3/5

    By minecraftgirl757
    i am not one to complain about what i am given, and for the most part, that applies to this app as well. i use this almost exclusively to check splatoon modes and salmon run shifts, and likely will continue to after splatoon 3 releases. as much convenience as this app has offered me, i do believe there to be lots more unused potential in this app that i would be so hyped to see realized! i'd love to see the clip-sharing opportunities the ssb section expanded upon--being able to share clips from any game, browsing ones your friends have shared, maybe even discovering some that are popular among fans. the app would also be a wonderful place to spread announcements and relevant news through notifications--and widgets! it would be wonderful if i could easily view information such as salmon run shifts or mode rotations from the convenience of the home page. this app harbors so much potential, and as an Avid Nintendo Switch User i really hope to see it grow.
  • It shouldent need the memebership 1/5

    By beckbro jack rules
    Why do you need a membership for nentendo online to play games
  • Updates 3/5

    By Jesse16swagR
    I’m trying to update the compatible version, but it keeps saying “It requires iOS 14.0 or later, you can switch to the compatible version”, which is annoying because I’m trying to see what’s going on with my games or milestones of the games I have.
  • Great Service 5/5

    By OmagaRacing2021
    Best for gamers who’s on Nintendo Switch it’s best app for voice chat
  • BROKE: Account Issues 1/5

    By Brymarkie9483720
    Unable to recognize official Nintendo accounts. Worthless app. PlayStation and Xbox both have apps that work.
  • Nook link 4/5

    By Analisa03
    I enjoy using this app, one thing i wish it had was for acnh which was updating prices (due to island ordinance) as well as an option that showed all the bugs, fish, and deep sea creatures and their costs. Also what time they appear would be nice too. Instead of having to look it up all the time
  • Insanely horrible. 3/5

    By Bad virus
    First try, said my nintendo account's page could not be displayed. No wonder these reviews are so cracked.
  • Needs more support for all games 4/5

    By Evron357
    Add more game support for all compatible games for voice chat, keep updating this to improve and work more in tune with the switch to work seamlessly all the time
  • Update 2/5

    By MiaRC
    I couldn't even get into the app because when i signed into my account I needed to update the app, I couldn't update it because my phone is older and its not even that old which is really annoying.
  • What’s going on?? 1/5

    By gjwilson4
    I cant even log in 😭 first time I tried was when I was 11, so I wanted til I was of age to see if it worked again, I’m 14 and it still don’t work 🤨
  • Seriously needs work.. 1/5

    By 3...2...1... asdf!
    Upon reinstalling the app it asks for your login information and shows an error page so you can’t even use it. This app has always been awful but this is a poor excuse for an app.
  • My spectrum Wifib8 -2G Enter tour password 2/5

    By Hollo Hey
    2110-2004 Unable to connect to network devices please check the status of the network detwork device and try again
  • This is the worst app 1/5

    By Crudup60
    The only reason why I downloaded it in the first place is because I wanted to connect it to my game animal crossing New Horizon well it does not connect it keeps giving me the error message that it needs to be connected to my Internet and it still doesn’t work so I don’t understand what’s the purpose of having an app that doesn’t serve a purpose it doesn’t have a purpose it’s just all smoke and mirrors as far as I’m concerned and I will be deleting the app good try not !!!
  • Why 2/5

    By foxt4lx
    I can’t stream my switch on my iPad
  • Um 5/5

    By pop_daddyy
    I have no idea why it’s only 3 stars so I feel bad I’m just gonna rate it 5 but I haven’t downloaded it yet
  • No longer usable 1/5

    By G0rt
    Now requires iOS 14 so I can no longer use it on my device since Apple doesn’t support iOS 14 yet on my device. No recourse but to delete the app off my device.
  • Good for Splatoon and nothing else 2/5

    By Slim in Blue
    The Splatoon 2 functionality? Fantastic, as a big Splatoon player it’s great for seeing map rotations several hours off and the store to order in game items is useful for getting some extra gear. Otherwise, it kinda freaking stinks. Nintendo’s voice chat isn’t worth bothering with when alternatives like literally just calling a friend one the phone or using an app like Discord are options, I guess it lets people see your friend code easily but friend codes are dumb as it is, the Smash Ultimate functionality is literally just the shared content which you can access in the actual game, and I have no idea what the Animal Crossing stuff is but it probably ain’t useful. Long story short, if you have like at least 100 hours in Splatoon 2 you should download it for convenience, every other aspect of the app is awful. And Splatoon 3 is coming out in a month so my recommendation to Splatoon players might not even last if they don’t update the app to support Splatoon 3.
