SwitchBuddy makes it easier to transfer screenshots (and videos) from your Nintendo Switch console to your mobile device. After you connect the app to your Switch it loads all the screenshots (or video) and allows you to save everything with a single tap.

You can also choose the import destination. By default SwitchBuddy will download screenshots and videos to your Photos library, but you can change this to iCloud Drive instead.

Loaded screenshots can also be quickly shared using the iOS Share Sheet. So you can quickly send them to your friends, to other cloud apps and more.

SwitchBuddy is free without any ads.

This app is not affiliated with Nintendo.

The app Nintendo should have made

I transfer screenshots to my phone all the time for studying Japanese using OCR, so I was so excited when Nintendo added a way to directly transfer screenshots from your Switch to your phone. Then I saw the mess of 2 QR codes, local Wi-Fi networks, local webpages, and one by one downloads that they make you jump through to get them. Ugh. I quickly went back to just transferring via the SD card.

SwitchBuddy makes this process sooooo much smoother. Point your camera at the first QR code, then press another button to download all the photos. It’s like 50x faster and 1000x less complicated. Really well done.

My only wish is that Nintendo would let you transfer more than 10 screenshots at a time. Everything else about the process is now super smooth thanks to this app!
