I first saw this app from a video and was like, “hey, that’s cool” I just hoped that it wouldn’t be an annoying app where you need to pay to get all the important features, or there were just ads every two seconds, but NO! I downloaded it and was surprised with how much they give you for it being free. You can buy an upgraded version of the app for some extra customization and you can favorite unlimited games. You can search for any upcoming switch game and favorite it if you want, and by clicking on it you can see videos, images, how many days until release, and more to keep track of when your favorite games come out. And the best part is that you can add widgets to your phone so when you are every curious when a game is coming out, just check there. You can find out how to add the widgets in the more tab of Switch Buddy. In conclusion, absolutely amazing app. There is nothing wrong about it for what it says. I’m excited for what new updates will come in the future.

Amazing tool and responsive dev!

This works amazingly well to get screenshots and all off my Switch however…. A small suggestion: I donated to the Tip Jar to help and was surprised to get different themes as a bonus however only unlocked some of them making me think it’s based on a tier of what you donate. This should be better noted in the app. Reading it made me think I’d get all the themes…. Not just some?

Edit: it appears to actually be a bug. I’ve submitted the dev screenshots to have it resolved! Thanks!

Edit 2: Bug has been resolved already with latest update! Thank you!

Developer Response ,


thank you very much for the tip. There are no tiers, it should unlock all themes. Otherwise that would be a bug for me to fix. Feel fee to get in touch via email to send me screenshot of what you see. Thanks.
