Nintendo Switch Online app reviews

  • Stop complaining, geez 3/5

    By Super Mario Fan (Katelyn)
    Stop complaining about the stupid Nintendo Switch Online membership, it's stupid how you guys are giving this app a 1 star rating just because you disagree with the membership thing. The membership isn't even that expensive anyways. I know it was a kinda dumb decision making people pay for playing online, but is it gonna kill you to pay a small fee to play games online? If you're complaining about it then stop. It isn't gonna help anything, and you just sound ridiculous.
  • Show some love for Animal Crossing 2/5

    By Amandaaallen
    Please, please make new items available for purchase using Nook Points in the NookLink. My house is starting to look like a creepy stalker memorial to Isabelle.
  • Trash 1/5

    By casivani
    I don’t even have the words To describe how use less this App is , I got my switch at launch , as soon as I heard about this app I did not bother with it til now years later just to see what’s up ,and Wow is it Lame 🙄 I don’t even see the point of it all
  • Crashes on login/setup 1/5

    By c29f34aae96009348e4d72deadbdc4
    I can't use this app at all. It crashes right after logging in and selecting the Nintendo Online account.
  • The app login is terrible 1/5

    By CoalBoundGD (YT/Coal Bound!)
    This stupid login doesn’t work I know my password like the back of my hand.
  • Remote compatibility 3/5

    By EXOmniKing
    I personally think they should make games wireless remotely playable on mobile devices, like with a Nintendo Switch Pro controller. If you don’t have a handheld, you can at least use an iPhone or Android. Just with some games. Not everything. Because how will they sell Nintendo switch consoles if you can just play it on mobile. Get what I’m saying? If you can play Xbox and PlayStation and PC games on Mobile, why not Nintendo games?
  • Really Nintendo? 2/5

    By CDI Zelda
    So I love Nintendo games. I recently got New Horizons and I love it. And then I learned you could use custom designs, I was ecstatic. I also learned that you could scan QR codes from others to get their designs. So I downloaded this app, and then learned that you need Nintendo Switch Online to do basically ANYTHING on this app. I don’t have Nintendo Switch Online. I knew Nintendo was a bit pricey, but this is ridiculous.
  • It’s not letting me sign in 1/5

    By HMJDiamond
    Every time I try to sign in it says the request has been denied please help me and fix that
  • Crashing 1/5

    By nicknamenickname159
    I deleted the app, reinstalled it then tried to log in and then it crashed and i reinstall it again and it does the same thing over and over and over. FIX YOUR APP NINTENDO
  • It’s not about the game. 5/5

    By perez lozada
    I’m going to get rocket league but it said that it was already purchased but when I checked my games it wasn’t there so I go the storage to download the game but still…..nothing changed could you please tell me how to fix this glitch and get rocket league on the switch? Btw my account is called classic and my profile pic is super leaf Mario from Mario bros 3. Pls fix this
  • New update 4/5

    By Zay1000k
    I heard that the new update is bringing out Bluetooth connection for the consoles. A long awaited feature I think everyone is eager to have, two thumbs up Nintendo
  • Not very accessible 2/5

    By bnana_colli31
    It’s very hard to find games with the voice chat feature yet their are many games that would be nice to have it. This app would be so much better if you could send direct messages to your friends as well as just start a voice chat with the app without having to have a game that supports it. Discord is cool and all but I have some game friends I met on switch and have no way of easily communicating with them. I hoped this app would fix that. Hopefully they further develop it in future updates.
  • Nintendo doesn’t care 1/5

    By Ryougafire
    They don’t care about you
  • Awful 1/5

    By .mbbc.ln
    No one wants to pay for online, and no one wants to use voice chat on a phone. This is unacceptable, Nintendo.
  • Constant crashes 1/5

    By D0MN8
    When I came back to this app after a hiatus of cancelling my online subscription, the app would crash after initially launching it. I tried deleting it and resigning in but after putting in my username and password and being redirected back to the app it would still crash
  • Laughably bad coding 2/5

    By Yggsassil
    This app has had a lot of problems, but I only ever needed it for one thing: to chat during New Horizons. Now I can’t even do that because, foolish me, I changed my password. I changed my password to my Nintendo Online account and now every time I try to log in to the NSO app, I get “The request contains an error” (which I also get from Pocket Camp but that is a whole different ballgame). Good job guys A+
  • Terrible 1/5

    By Doug_Laws
    Low key bad app, plus Nintendo does this thing where they hate and stop people who love their content from trying to engage in it when Nintendo doesn’t support it. It’s infuriating. Tired of Nintendo taking this stance. Either freemelee or get over it.
  • Worthless 1/5

    By Twick0787
    I originally got this app for the animal crossing items, but I checked out the features for other games too. Nintendo has of lately been putting zero effort into any of properties and this app is no different. Get whatever you’re after and then delete the app
  • Amazing app 5/5

    By awesome but premium
    I really love the app it is really cool I also think in smash brothers you can play your music from your phone that you own :)
  • I can’t even open! 1/5

    By GracefullyBroken21
    Its just stuck on loading. Going on two weeks. Try to open it everyday! I really wish y’all would fix this.
  • Fix your service 1/5

    By Dimondpro6281
  • App Bugs 2/5

    By Donnysaur
    App keeps crashing whenever I press the share button for super smash bros
  • Very limited and lackluster 2/5

    By Mokafor
    The features given on the app barely pass for practical. There should be features to add/contact friends or to know when your friends do are online. The overall design can be improved as well.
  • Splatoon 5/5

    By Felicia Fates
    I can check the splatoon rotations without having to boot up the game on my switch :)
  • No real reason to download this 2/5

    By Kid Flash Metapod
    I think it’s weird enough that the voice chat for a console is a mobile app. But on top of that it’s a very limited voice chat, since it only works in certain situations. After that there is little to no reason to have this app. It serves no purpose. I can’t even see my friend code on here to show someone when I don’t have my switch on me. That seems like a REALLY basic feature that I can do on like any other “console-companion app”.
  • I can’t use this app anymore 2/5

    By Plerblah
    Previously I only used this app for animal crossing. I made a new island on a new switch and it still thinks I’m my character from my very first island instead of the character I currently am. Because of this I can’t use this app at all now. If anyone knows if there’s a way to fix this please help, Ive waited over a year for this issue to be fixed but it still hasn’t.
  • This app shouldn't exist 1/5

    By colombia1989
    I just downloaded it because my kid wants to talk with his friends. But this is ridiculous that you have to download a separate app to chat on a Video game, what year is it?? 1981?
  • Great! 5/5

    By [Explosion]
    Great! Why do so many people hate it?
  • Needs more things, limited 2/5

    By AOF987
    Needs more things to do, for example on the PS app you can chat with friends, you can see the store and more.
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By JonnyTB
    Doesn’t work on iPhone 12 Pro Max. Updated to latest iOS and still not working. Please fix.
  • What’s the point? 1/5

    By Sum dum ho 67
    Why would you make it free iff 2 of the games need to have a subscription? You can’t acces online Custom designs from animal crossing New horizons without a membership wich I’m sorry Is dumb,
  • Crashes everytime I open 1/5

    By DaProAsian
    Deleted the app and reinstall it and everytime I login to my account it crashes
  • Would rather have a proper chatting feature built into the switch os 1/5

    By Juancx13
    This app is lackluster and seemingly pointless. 🗑
  • App is a joke 1/5

    By I broke up MCR
    I can’t even open the app at all on my iPhone 11 Pro Max or my old iPhone X. Let me explain: I can sign IN to my account but once I get passed that, the app crashes immediately. The app ONLY works when I’m signed out but what good does that do? Deleted. Nintendo you are a joke. Also while I’m here and ranting, how about making something fresh and new instead of beating Mario and Link like a dead horse? MAKE SOMETHING NEW AND DIFFERENT. NEW GAMES. NEW CHARACTERS. NEW STORIES. This is why Sony and Microsoft are beating you. End rant. Thanks for reading 😘
  • Useless 1/5

    By ene.19
    Add a chat for all the games. Add a voice chat option for all the games. Or just make it so that we can use this app for all the games in general. Even the non Nintendo ones.
  • Great online service! 5/5

    By mariotimewoohoo
    I may be biased (I am a Nintendo fan) but it is so cool that you can play online, save data upload, and NES and SNES games all in one service! Needless to say, Nintendo needs to add Gamecube games on Switch Online. But it is worth $35 a year!
  • Don’t give Nintendo your money 1/5

    By Jehivgu
    Purchased Animal Crossing NH and a year later it’s a mess. Boring, repetitive, buggy. Look how useless this app is. I restarted my island and this app still shows my previous island’s info. Nintendo will take your money and run.
  • Wth is this crap 2/5

    By theblanknan
    I just downloaded the app and sign in but it says I need a Nintendo membership to click on any of the games that it is showing me I don’t know why it’s saying that but it’s not letting me do anything else but keep giving me the error code
  • Ehhhhhhhhhhhhh 3/5

    By b$ jhrfgcxdxvztdxs
    Trust me this App is good butttttttttt it has some complaints i’ll put them in my next review
  • Not able to sign in. 1/5

    By simsim wells
    So my son’s account is linked to my “Nintendo switch Online family” but my son’s account is not able to sign in.
  • Good app but about ACNH 3/5

    By Qveen42
    I’ve been playing ACNH for about a year or so and I can say it’s pretty fun. I love the game and is very interactive which sparks creativity. However, I have a bit of a complete hatred for online playing. The annoying cutscenes need to be removed. It’s aggravating when I’m trying to play and all I get within every 5 minutes are people joining and leaving. If they can’t be removed then there should at least be a skip button because it’s quite annoying to have to sit there and watch the arrival and leaving for 2 minutes straight back to back.
  • I H A V E A S E V E R A L Q U E S T I O N 3/5

    By ( ˘ ³˘)♥( ͠° ͟ʖ ͡°)
    When I’m trying to sign in it doesn’t let me it says that the email sign in name or the password are incorrect and I’m pretty sure there are not incorrect is there any solution to this I just wanna post my splatoon best ;-; till then I’m just gonna put 3 stars
  • Useless 👎 1/5

    By Jmsan5
    There’s no point in getting this. Very limited features for such a high price. Clunky user interface. Very buggy app. Something this low in quality should be free. Deleting and canceling my subscription. 👎
  • Why 4/5

    By 𝕜𝕚𝕥𝕥𝕖𝕟シ
    I’m connected to the internet and it still doesn’t let me send reactions through the app
  • Bad review 1/5

    By @Andymunoz2009
    The app keeps buffering and won’t let me download it please fix this I deleted it by accident and I need it back now and it’s been buffering for 5 hours now
  • Password labyrinth 1/5

    By NinjaKitty132
    Can’t sign in, and I KNOW my password is correct. But it will never let me log in because my password is still somehow wrong. I just wanna play
  • This is the best thing ever. 5/5

    By Lemjimgrl
    It finnaly works. Because when I used to try the app it never worked. It even wouldn’t work when I had a Nintendo online membership active. Well now it works!!
  • App doesn’t even want to start 1/5

    By LetsSetSail
    When I download the app and sign into my account the app gets stuck into an infinite loop. I have tried restarting my phone and deleting the app but nothing seems to work.
  • good app… but it could be better 3/5

    By minecraft_and_roblox_lover
    pros: quick access to smash bros online shared content. specific clothing for your splatoon characters. cons: voice chat isn’t very good. we can only use it for three games. just use discord for voice chat gaming.
