3DS Swapnote App Receives Update With New Features

By Ishaan . April 11, 2013 . 12:15pm

The Nintendo 3DS’ free Swapnote app has received an update. The update adds new features such as allowing you to take photographs and audio recordings from within the app, to attach to your notes. You can also now use a different colour of ink on each page. These are demonstrated in the video below:

    Need a update that increases that awful ink limit. My friends and I like drawing stupid comics to each other but hit the limit really really fast.

      Heh, agreed. While I do like to try and get creative and see how I can challenge myself when it comes to drawings with the ink level, it can also be a pain.

        Um, guys, Colours 3D exists for a reason, you know? You could attach images you draw on Colours 3D onto Swapnote…

        • puchinri

          Is Colors the free one? If so, I am all for that. If not. . . then, meh. I do want it eventually though.
          (I also tend to match my drawings to/around the stationary I use, which I wouldn’t be able to do in Colors, right?)

          • Colors isn’t free, no. Also, it’s a painting app that connects to its own online gallery, not a messaging system like Swapnote.

          • puchinri

            Alright. I couldn’t remember which it was for sure. I’ve wanted it for a while, but I need to be saving the money for games (especially given it is not a messaging system).

          • Swapnote sadly isn’t the ideal solution either, since you can’t access it from within a game. They really need to make screenshots/messaging an OS feature. It does wonders for word of mouth.

            Ah, speaking of which… do you mind if I get in touch with you about something via e-mail? (You don’t have to mention your e-mail publicly; I can see it in the Disqus admin section.)

          • puchinri

            That’s true. I have fun with it, but that’s because my boyfriend and I tend to make mini-notes for each other randomly for fun. Having it available like that would be convenient on many levels.

            And sure~.

    i think it would be cool if you could send this notes to e-mails, miiverse and social networks

  • puchinri

    Different ink on different pages is very nice.

  • yoUNg_grOUp568

    I really disliked swapnote.

  • Craig

    I’m glad we finally got an undo button.

    When is Miiverse going to be added to this thing? I know they announced it like 3 months ago.
