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.

such a time saver

amazing app! so easy & fast. uploads the screenshots straight to your phone. if you’re having problems w/ the app, try updating it; I was having some glitch issues following the first download but noticed it required an extra update.

I love Supercell1111111 ,


Hey! I really like the app you I hope you see this because I have an idea to make the app even better! I think you should add a screenplay option so you can watch what you playing on your mobile device!
