Easier way to transfer screenshots (and videos) from your Nintendo Switch console to your mobile device.

After you connect the app to your Switch, it loads the pre-selected screenshots (or video) and allows you to save everything with a single tap.

You can import all your (selected) screenshots in as little as THREE taps!

You can also choose the import destination. SwitchBuddy will download screenshots and videos to your Photos library by default, but you can change this to iCloud Drive instead or use in-app storage (accessible also via the Files app).

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.

Make the app yours with themes and alternative icons. Themes inspired by Mario, Splatoon, Animal Crossing, and Switch OLED are available.

Playing on a TV? No problem, with zoom you can comfortably scan the needed QR code from your sofa.

SwitchBuddy is free without any ads. You can unlock extra themes by tipping, but all functionality is and will always be free.

SwitchBuddy is not affiliated with Nintendo.

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!
