Loaded screenshots can also be quickly shared. So you can quickly send them to your friends.

Scanning the first QR code works fine, but trying to scan the second one spams this message for me "Scan second QR code is not wanted. Just click on 'Tap to transfer', after WiFi is connected." But it's not there. Update: The "Tap to transfer" text appears after scanning the first QR code, but disappears when trying to scan the second one. Additionally, it doesn't actually save my images to my gallery. I had to send the images to myself through Discord so I could download them from there.

Okay, so first off - this is a major improvement over the default system to transfer media. Like the Dev mentioned, the way Nintendo implemented it was sloppy. Next, the main issue I see people having is that they're saying they can't scan the qr code because the camera in the app doesn't autofocus: all you have to do is hold your device a little further back from the Switch screen until it's in focus. You don't have to align the Switch qr code to the camera window in the app! :) Thank you!

Terrible. Many times I've sent screenshots across. Its as easy as the developer claims to be, but I have been unsuccessful numerous times when trying to save them to my phone. Also, I can't access screenshots I have previously sent, so I have to send them all over again. Quicker and far more effective to do it via phone camera. Plus you can save them all at once doing it that way. Do not recommend this app in the slightest
