It doesn’t matter whether you’re a content creator, games journalist, or just an avid gamer who’s eager to share your latest screens online, managing your screenshots quickly and easily is important. On most home consoles, taking a screenshot has become as simple as pressing a single button, but the Switch makes managing those screenshots a bit more cumbersome than it needs to be.
You’ve normally got two options on the Switch: save everything to a microSD card and transfer your screenshots manually to whatever device you want to view them on, or you use your mobile device to scan a QR code to transfer that screenshot. The problem with the second approach is that it can only be done one file at a time, making the whole process rather time-consuming.
Enter SwitchBuddy. This handy little app comes courtesy of Czech developer Filip Němeček (via IGN) for your Android or Apple device. Filip made SwitchBuddy after becoming “frustrated by the clumsy process" of managing his Switch screenshots, so thanks to his frustrations, you can now download his app to make transferring screeners a breeze.
The process is simple: just boot up the app and then bring up the QR code of any of your Switch's screenshots. This will link the app to your Switch and bring up every screenshot and video available, not just the one on the QR code. Now you can swap files back and forth in batches rather than one at a time and there’s no need to get your fingers tired handling a microSD card. The iOS version even lets you transfer screenshots to iCloud.
You can download SwitchBuddy now on Android and iOS for the low price of zero dollars. Can't argue with that price.
In other Nintendo news, Nintendo is still crushing the UK sales charts with five out of the top 10 games going to the Switch, including Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond, Minecraft Switch Edition, Just Dance 2022, and Mario Party Superstar. The Switch has also likely topped both the PS5 and Xbox Series X in terms of sales too.
