This is not what I expected when I downloaded the app. Why not make it similar to the PlayStation app? So we can browse the Nintendo store among other things. It seems to me that it is completely useless if you don't have Splatoon. Essentially, this app should have way more features than it currently has.
Wasn't really sure what to think. If it was an app made for Splatoon 2 ( If so, just call it Splatnet 2 or something), than pretty good, but for the Switch in general? Not good. I mean, voice chat should be built into the Switch, for starters. Hopefully they'll fix all that with the release of the Switch services.
The app needs to be more dedicated; it feels like I've opened a very limited browser. Right now, I'm using SplatNet and it's seriously just a website you need this app to browse (unfortunately, despite this, we can't access SplatNet with our own browsers). Only reason to really have it is the app exclusive gear for Splatoon 2. Otherwise, this app is useless.
Come on, even Wii U had better online. Let us voice chat and message people on the Switch itself without this annoying companion app. Even the way you use it to voice chat sucks, you have to choose a specific game mode in Splatoon 2 just to be able to invite friends to voice chat, rather than being able to ring up any Switch friends at any time. Giving 2 stars because the integrated Splatnet is actually really good.
Unnecessary app and extremely archaic. Works for only one game and the voice part is just absurd to think it useful. It's not even close to apps like discord and it's required for voice chat? At least I can check stats on splatoon, even if it's just one game sadly.
The app is barely useful at the moment, it needs a status for the multiplayer so players can know if there's server maintenance. There could be an option to purchase a game, or future membership fee for the online service when it comes into affect, ready to be downloaded etc, on the Switch. The ability to see which friends are online. And notifications for purchased games e.g. Game updates, server issues, or events for a specific game. And a report bug or feature. Chat is extremely difficult to use, and there is no basic message system. Maybe just add a text only message system with no ability to add pictures or videos, and tie it into parental controls? Which needs more advertising so parents are aware of that feature across the board.
Implemented bug fixes.
