    Kingdom Key 2015


    This app is useful for tracking your stats in some games, and even lets you remotely do some things, even when you're not playing. If you care about your performance in, say, Splatoon, you can use the app to track which weapons you excel with, and the ones you'll need more practice with. Voice chat is obsolete, as other apps with voice chat exist. Overall, solid choice for those that want more out of their NSO membership! Would definitely recommend to friends and content creators!

    That One Person


    family membership It's a really nice app :D It's so much better to use this than the in game keyboard for Animal Crossing. At first I was confused on why it was linked to my old island, but then I went into the settings for the actual game and linked it to my new island. That solves the issue for not connecting to new islands :D

    membership code If I could give this app zero stars, I absolutely would have. I just downloaded this app fifteen minutes ago and have tried using it a few times and it keeps stopping and won't let me even open the app. I closed the app a few times and retried to open it and it's definitely still not working. Total waste of time, I will be uninstalling it from my phone momentarily.

  4. Yobama-avatar



    store I use it for voice chats sometimes, but I mostly use NookLink. My ONLY problem is that you have to click send before the reaction happens in game. It is a new feature, but that's something to keep in mind. Can't reactionspam.

  5. Shelly Darling-avatar

    Shelly Darling


    price I love it. There's always demos or free downloads if you pay 4 bucks a month! It's totally worth it! I've never had a problem with it. But you need hotspot or wifi to go online. A definite highly recommend if you own a switch!

  6. Akira Cato-avatar

    Akira Cato


    subscription If I could give zero starts, I would... This app is not working at all. I try to connect via the "log-in" button and it directs me to my browser... Apparently this is a known problem, but nobody at Nintendo seems to care for fixing it. Yeah, no, thanks a lot - I'm staying with Discord

  7. Maat Amun-avatar

    Maat Amun


    account Pretty good! I only use the for New Horizons, haven't had any issues. A small thing though is I wish the text box could have a higher letter capacity. Thats all, overall very easy to use if you're a first timer.

  8. duccpai-avatar



    app I've had this app since launch, mostly because of animal crossing. I've never had any issues with it whatsoever. Plus, if you are using it for animal crossing, it makes typing so much easier.

  9. kenny-avatar



    games list i literally can't voice chat anymore because i decided to link my account to an emulator to voice chat. i uninstalled the emulator and even signed out of the switch app. but it keeps saying my account is in use when it's *not*. i lost one of the only reasons i even have to use this app, and a useful function. it's garbage.

    membership code free Can't change island! I created by far 2 islands..I deleted the 1st one and still stuck! I have no idea how to make about this app to recognize my new is absolutely frustrating since now there is this thing that I can do things for Halloween..this app otherwise sucks..IDK..I have tried everything through my nintendo account and nothing

  11. Matt M-avatar

    Sometimes the app drops voice chat calls when playing with friends. This is frustrating so I usually just call my friends by cell phone, or Discord instead. Otherwise, the app is good.

    the only thing i use the app for, nooklink design codes, has been messed up in the recent update. the transparent parts of designs show up as glitchy. please fix this asap, and i will change my review to reflect that 🧚🏻‍♀️

    Easy to use. The voice chat function could use some work. It logs you off when the display times out.

  14. Temmie Hoi-avatar

    Temmie Hoi


    I restarted my animal crossing island and can no longer use the app to talk because it won't change to my new island no matter what I do (I've logged in and out, deleted and reinstalled, gone through all the settings )

    I use this app for splatoon 2 only and its awsome. I can report, look at stats, it's so cool! I can even see when the latest splatfest is coming up.

    Instant crashes on Mi A1 Android Pie, 2 sec in splash screen and app crashes, seems it is a common issue for a long time and still no fix. Haiya! :(

    Eimíle Bellerose


    if you reset in animal crossing new horizons, you cant use chat, and the passport is stuck on my old island but you can fix it by pressing - and talking to nook

  18. Brielle-avatar



    The app hangs on the splash screen and then crashes. It worked on a previous version though. EDIT: it's been two months and still no fix.

  19. Jen Eagan-avatar

    Jen Eagan


    Limited to original island. I have an account on my son's switch and then got my own. Using the same Nintendo account for both but only the account on my son's switch shows up, with no way to change to my new island. Can't use. Worthless.

  20. Brittany Weigel-avatar

    Brittany Weigel


    The app seems minimal at best, ignored and forgotten most of the time. Nothing that is helpful in all reality is on this app. Minus the keyboard feature in ACNH part of the app.

  21. Heather VR-avatar

    Heather VR


    Often takes a while to boot up and doesn't give me adjustable settings. Ideally, I could make it stop asking if I wanted to voice chat every time I opened it.

  22. Team Little-avatar

    Tells me I need a 'Nintendo Switch Online membership' to use the animal crossing features when they don't even seem that great features judging by what others are saying. Nobody else has had this problem / got it for free so.. I'm confused?

    SuperCyberus 2


    It doesn't even notify me when my friends are online. What use is this app? It's extremely limited. I get that you want to be family friendly, but get with the times!! This is pathetic!! Allow messaging already instead of having us rely on chance encounters online!

    This is the worst app I have ever seen. Put your voice chat communication INGAME, its not a new concept. Nintendo used to be the pinnacle of consoles. Whoever is in charge has turned Nintendo into a gimmicky joke. Shame on you.

    Trash discord does the job way better you have to have app running the whole time cant back out and do something else on phone and kills battery suoer fast cause screen has to stay on the whole time do your self a favor just get discord

  43. XenoBeast64123-avatar



    Great way to keep track of your Splatoon stats and seeing upcoming map rotations

  44. Synsarea-avatar



    I use this for NookLink to AC:NH. It's much easier than typing on the in-game keyboard from your Switch. You can use this app to chat into the environment of the island you're currently on, or message anyone (or 'everyone') from your best friends list, as long as they're online in the game. Useful for downloading the older style QR codes as well, though you can only store and transfer one at a time. The functionality for Animal Crossing is simple, limited, but does what it's supposed to.

  45. AmyLynn McGrath-avatar

    AmyLynn McGrath


    This app is great, but I feel like there could have been more done with the animal crossing new horizons section. I understand that the game was just released a few months ago, but as of today its just a glorified Qr code scanner. Maybe you could do something like have Isabell or Tom nook comment on the weather, or say something about who's visiting the island.

  46. Catherine Grenier-avatar

    Catherine Grenier


    It's a "must-have" for animal crossing players !!

  47. Jillian Crawford-avatar

    Jillian Crawford


    Every time I try to log in, it just goes to some random Google search page despite numerous attempts and ways to fix this. I've had my switch and phone looked at to fix this, but no progress has been made, only time wasted. It's linked to my switch but it still doesn't work whatsoever. I'd love to give this app a more accurate review, but if I can't even log in, how will I know?

  48. Mandie ACNH-avatar

    Mandie ACNH


    Pretty good but I cant seem to get the new horizons reaction app unless its not out yet

  49. Matthew Wolfson-avatar

    Matthew Wolfson


    I am confused by this app. I recent got a switch. When I discovered the need for this app in animal crossing. It appears only useful if you make custom designs or have friends to voice chat with. I feel like this is wasted potential. No Pokemon game is useable with this. Which is odd as this would be a perfect accessory for home. Both in making search lists for the Pokedex, and an alter system for wonder trade. Also feel like a message board system could be on here as the switch lacks one.

  50. Dragonisser-avatar



    Doesn't even start and crashes instantly

  51. Courie Summers-avatar

    Courie Summers


    When I open the app, it prompts a log in. When I click the sign in button, it opens my web browser and searches for the web address for Nintendo log in. It won't even use the app. I log in there and have no services, go back to the app, hit log in, and it pops the Google search up again. I have to scroll through search results to find the Nintendo page. Useless.

  52. Alpha Seagull-avatar

    Alpha Seagull


    There's no reason for this app to exist and not be part of the console. Every feature is pathetically basic, and even the most important feature on here, the voice chat, is so bare and terrible in audio quality that literally any other voice chat service is objectively better. You can't chat unless you're currently PLAYING with the players you're chatting, and it constantly stops and starts on itself for dumb arbitrary reasons interrupting convos. Use discord, messenger, Skype, ANYTHING else.

  53. Blanca d.-avatar

    Blanca d.


    Completely useless. I wanted it for my Animal Crossing New Horizons game. I installed the app today but it just has the data from my previous island. Island that was deleted months ago so I can't use the app. Honestly, it was kind of the same with Pocket Camp. Once I downloaded the objects they offered for the switch, I could not get them anymore no matter how many accounts I created.

  54. Mr. Maniac-avatar

    Mr. Maniac


    When it's updated it works fine, even if you don't use it much. Moment there's an update tho, ya gotta just clear everything off your device. Might cuz I don't have another micro SD card or something, but this thing takes up more space than I do on the couch!

  55. Silent Awareness-avatar

    Silent Awareness


    This app is horrible. I have an account and I KNOW my password but when I put it in this app, it takes me to the site online and KEEPS telling me that my password is wrong. So I change it, screenshot it so I don't forget and try again. Still telling me I'm wrong. Change it AGAIN and it won't let me log in. I'm done. I just won't add my art to animal crossing because this isn't worth the headache. Fix this garbage.

  56. Laurel H-avatar

    Laurel H


    It works well, but is a little slow when loading up and selecting which game you're using it with. I wish the voice chat wasn't a popup; I'd rather have that be an option I have to select specifically rather than always being the first thing that comes up.

  57. Robert Ramirez-avatar

    Robert Ramirez


    There's nothing really on this app, it feels as if it was abandoned. I only use it to download stages off of Smash World when I don't have my Switch, very useless app. SMASH ULTIMATE HAS THE WORST ONLINE EXPERIENCE BY THE WAY. It should probably be changed so people can actually be happy and have a fun time playing Smash Ultimate. "If it's not fun, why bother?"

  58. Duck's Channel-avatar

    Duck's Channel


    Honestly from my experience with the app, the user agreement is all in Japanese when it shouldn't be, it keeps making my account a test account and won't ket me use any of the games I have for it. It keeps saying I need the online membership for Animal Crossing: New Horizons when I already have the membership. I don't know how to fix this and I personally don't recommend the app.

  59. Christian S-avatar

    Christian S


    App was useful for a time for salmon rotations and gear hunting, but the app takes forever to load anything. Same problem for smash, not responsive enough to warrant using. It is nice to share smash clips (only for a time because they delete them...)

  60. Nuria-avatar



    My phone is capable of using Nintendo switch online, but every time I open the app it just crashes, I don't even know what the app looks like, since it crashes on the first screen when I open it. I just wanted the app so I could get clothes from qr codes for animal crossing new horizons. I am disappointed in you Nintendo. (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ

  61. Chris Sims-avatar

    Chris Sims


    This app is too simple to a fault. Animal Crossing has had numerous updates this month alone while the app hasn't seen one since last month. Can't even connect to nooklink because it fails for whatever reason despite an excellent connection. Upgrade this app to fix the issue and do better!

  62. Tiger Smith-avatar

    Tiger Smith


    It's a fairly good app. I just wish I could see stats about my play time on my Switch, that'd be nice. It'd also be cool to see my wish list - even if I can't purchase from my phone, I'd like to see what I've wishlisted and what the prices/sales are.

    Its fine but- Well for one the voice Chat is Broken, It doesnt work for me, Its mainly slow as hell, But other then that, it works fine with getting splatoon items and talking better on Animal crossing

  64. Oliver Fish-avatar

    Oliver Fish


    4 stars only due to the only use being animal crossing, but when using it with animal crossing we have hours of fun using this app with up to 6 different callers. There are a few flaws, and I'm not sure how it works outside of AC:NH so this is a review of it for that one game.

    Only works with 3 games currently 8/20 and still cuts out and is spotty the fact you have to use an app in the first place is ridiculous but would be okay if it worked and it doesn't. Not can you check things in your switch remote download , shop or do anything remotely useful.

  67. Monkeyjumbo48-avatar



    This just sucks. If you're a gamer who wants to talk with your friends on switch, get discord.

  69. MutantMonkey14-avatar



    Lacks functionality outside a very limited number of games and is a terrible implementation of voice chat. Its somewhat interesting and useful for Splatoon 2 and Smash Ultimate. Faster to check Splatoon stage rotation via the unofficial webpage.

    It is good, nice to see my stats in splatoon 2. But I wish there is more games it supports with in selection. Also kind wished there was a thing where you could text your friends in case you want to ask them to join a private splatoon match or something like that.

  71. ZealotKane-avatar



    its all right but why even have it? So we can appreciate it more? I honestly dont appreciate having this instead of a cool ass built-in system for voice chat and invites like xbox or playstation has been doing for years already. plus its jank.

  72. Matthew Mayberry-avatar

    Matthew Mayberry


    Just useless. Yea, it provides special features for certain games but it's only for 3 games. And not even all of the games on the E Shop are supported, some have in-game voice chat. Just give is native chat and make it easier.

  73. Bee Tee-avatar

    I really wanted to use this for acnh on my switch, but whenever I open this, it shows the logo, and 5 seconds later, it just goes to my main screen and says "Nintendo Switch Online isn't Responding" I'm very disappointed but if this stops hapening, I will rate this 5 stars Thanks

    Can't login. Everytime I click the login button it redirects me to my internet browser with unrelated pages. Based on the other reviews, it doesn't look to be worth my time anyways. 400% surge in profits from Covid lockdown and Nintendo can't use any of that to make the online experience better??

    I only use it for AC:NH but it seems to work well, nice layout and easy to use. Only issue is every time I go onto the app I am told about voice chat, I wish there was an option to not see this message again

    Damien Rodriguez


    I am trying to use this to text better on acnh and I go and try to text and it says Iy can't go through. But are wifi is pretty good Soo it is weird to not go through. And yes my Nintendo switch is on the same wifi. So I connected my phone charger too my switch and it still did to work.

  77. thatonerandomkid-avatar



    I love it. So good and a lot of game compatable, on thing i want to happen is that you can see your critterpedia or other stuff like your rating and island tune and maybe it show you map/see the island, every item of the floor and every house.

    This used to be an amazing app, but because i picked the wrong thing when it said north or south, i had to get rid of my old animal crossing account. Its kept my island conected to it... my new island is moonlight, but its stuck on cherry. If you can help me fix this, that would be great...

    I wish the app had more to do in it. Maybe be able to save your photos and captures from the gallary on the switch. Be able to see Switch news. Maybe even see how long you have been playing a game for. It just needs more.

    I'm 11 and I got a Nintendo Switch like 1 year ago, a couple of months ago my sister bought me ACNH. After a couple of days of playing ACNH, I wanted to use some cool paths and clothes that I found online, after watching a tutorial on how to import custom designs I downloaded this app and found out that I need to be 13+ to use it, I was very dissapointed when I found out about this, it would be cool if there was a way to access the app if you're not 13+, like your parents allowing you to access.

  81. Gaming Fan Rio Inkling-avatar

    Meh. It really isn't too bad or good. I used to use it before the age limit to chat with my Splatoon 2 pals, and it was nice. But the fact that it has a age limit disgusts me. Nintendo games are mostly for kids (there are some mature ones, but most are made for 10+) so I don't understand why you don't allow kids to chat on games within their age limit. I know, child predators, but kids still should be able to chat with others their age in case they want to chat with a friend while playing.

  82. James-avatar



    Refuses to log in, just takes me back to the beginning three panel intro and asks me to log in over and over even though my information is correct, really wish this would work, I've reinstalled 6 times but nothing seems to work.

    first I thought that I'd get animal crossing but I didn't get it because it keep it keep saying that my device isn't connected with the new tendo thing but I can't do it and I really hope you fix this bike but the only reason I'm giving it one star is because I couldn't even do anything and all and all of its questions is kind of for adults so I hate it and I really hope you fix it

    Seems to work, but when i scan a image with Nooklink it tells me to scan a second one, i dont know why i gotta scan another one, but okay. I do, and no matter what the image is it says it fails to scan. This is annoying.

    So paying 20$ a year is an amazing deal, I will say that. However, I'm disappointed in nook link and the way the Qr codes work. Using the scanner is nice but it would be better if you could do the number code on the app as well instead of having to go to the store. Nooklink would be much better if the messages we were able to send to friends could be longer. I also think I should be able to send mail through it instead of having to go to the airport.

    When I first installed it, I thought it would work 100% But, When I tried logging in on my account on the switch, It said that the app could not link with my switch. Very disappointing, Please fix this for a higher review

    I love how convenient the custom design portal is! I just have one question. I restarted my island and I'm wondering how to get an updated passport and villager list. Thanks

    I used this once to play smash Bros with a friend, but every time we start a match, it just hangs up automatically and it doesn't help that the audio quality is hot trash. I think this would be good with more improvements, but I'm just gonna say that a call or discord is better or better yet just add in system voice chat. The best parts about this app is in Splatoon it shows your stats and it's free

    The chats disconnect a lot and sometimes slow at responding, especially while playing MarioKart, but its still easy to use and I've made great friends on this app.

    I love this app it's right there to keep me up to date with what's current in Splatoon. This app is simple and straight with it's approach, and it accomplishes what it's purpose is,- to be a companion to the game and gameplay. I enjoy this app in general

    Since the update I cant ingame chat anymore. It always says I need to connect to the internet. I am connected and it still doesnt work. Very frustrating. No use for the app.

    This is something that just shouldn't have been an app in the 1st place. Just make it a console option to turn off voice chat and utilize parental controls for it. That way sound output can come from the same source. Otherwise if using a headset you are forced to choosing between listening to voice chat OR the game you are voice chatting on. Complete garbage failure on Nintendo's oversight.

    Great companion app if you have friends that are playing the same games as you on the switch. Makes animal crossing that much better with friends.

    I'm not 13 but I want to use this to make ACNH easier to use (NookLink app.) But I can't use it because of my age. Even though it says on the play store that its 3+. Not happy about that.

    An extremely basic app, with minimal functionality. Where other platforms have had group voice for decades (native to the console, no less) Nintendo has limited voice chat only for supported games, with no functionality to pair/group up with those on your friends list to be able to voice chat with directly. Better off to use a third party app that's built for purpose (i.e. Discord) than bother with this app.

  99. Bobby Persaud-avatar

    The voice chat is poorly implemented. You have to be in a game (and only certain games support it) to voice chat together with your friends. There's no "party chat" or anything like that to let you chat outside of a game. It's easier to use something like Discord - skip this.

    This review is probably very insignificant but the only reason I rate four is because your pretty damn good at making video games. I seriously request that you add a voice chat system to The switch that does not require my phone. I would also like to see some form of DMs or something similar. I mean, you added in a videogame so I don't understand why it's difficult to add to the switch it self. If there if a cultural or concern that is the reason for no DMs, it would be nice to know what it is.

    It's a really good app. When it works most of the time when I try and download Smash Bros clips it dosen't show then even though it says it has been posted online before. It's not very good

    Absolutely worthless app. I've been trying everything I can think of and every solution the web has to offer, but it just won't work. It refuses to acknowledge I'm signed in no matter what, so I can't access even the most basic parts of the app. Don't bother downloading this trash, all you'll get is a headache and wasted time.

    I can't even use the app for the very first time. I try to sign in and it takes me to a random search engine page. I wanted it to chat faster in Animal Crossing, but looks like I'll have to wait until this is fixed.

    Having to use a phone to talk to my friends for a system I paid for in 2020 is terrible. For this reason I have to leave 2 stars. The real reason this is called Nintendo "Switch" Online is because I have to SWITCH to PlayStation 4 party chat or Discord to talk to my friends. Every other platform got chatting and inviting friends right except for Nintendo. Please add a proper fix to invites and chatting!

    I just reset my island on AC:NH and for some reason the character I was using is still on and not my new character. I have tried uninstalling the app to try and see if it would change but no. Utterly pointless of using this app if you can't change it

    It's really nice to be able to type out messages on Animal Crossing that show up on screen. It's a million times easier than typing with the switch controllers. The voice feature however, cuts out a lot, we end up using another option when playing together.

    Great app. Very useful for knowing the Splatoon 2 map rotations hours ahead. Highly recommended for those who are using the online service

  110. KJ-avatar



    I would give it a 5-star rating, however, it's difficult because every time a match begins in smash bros, the voice chat randomly cuts out. For some people it completely disconnects on its own. Might I recommend updating its system so this can't happen again. Otherwise, the app's okay.

    I downloaded the app to use in ACNH so that talking in the game would be easier but when I go to login on the app, the url for login doesn't exist anymore and I get an error on the Nintendo website. And when I wanted to login It took me to my main search engine, it didnt even recognize it as a url!

    Now its useless, it dont have any features, if it at least have feature to send screenshots and clips wirelessly from switch, its annoying to upload it to Twitter And then download it with some downloader -_- Also, the 20$ for online multiplayer is scam, because the multiplayer doesnt run on some Nintendo servers, but Its p2p

    Now the app is fine but I just came to complain about Animal Crossing:New Horizons since I don't know where else to give feedback, I share a Nintendo switch with my family and we play Animal Crossing:New Horizons but I can't talk to Tom Nook about the creatures I have plus I don't even have my own island I don't know if they're glitches or not but if I can have something done about it I will appreciate the help.

    Attempting to log in brings up a google search for a random string of garbage, with the top result being unrelated to Nintendo, due to the sign in link having spaces. Attempting to fix the log in link by turning the spaces into underscores simply reroutes to an invalid link.

    This app does help in some ways with games that support voice chat and i mainly use it to scan qr codes in acnh and talk but there are some buga that kind of ruin the experience such as voice chat with a problem that closes the app when i enter a voice chat room. Overal a good app tho

    Can't even log in. The button to log in sends me to some random search page where a bunch of sketchy sites and using semi-similar addresses (and a GitHub page that supposedly describes what the login address is supposed to do). Nintendo is basically THE OG gaming company. Do better.

    The app doesn't even let you create an account if you don't have a Nintendo Switch. It's like you have to have one in order to use the stupid app. Apps like this (such as PS app and Xbox app) let you create an account and get access to most things, no problem. But this app won't even let you do that. That's how stupid this app is. If you don't have a Nintendo Switch, don't even bother getting this app. Useless.

    Thank you Nintendo for doing something your rivals have been doing for years, but you really need to take lessons on how and what with this, other than Smash and Animal Crossing this app is a digital featherweight
