I have a feeling you’re going to love this new update to the Splatoon 3 mobile app, which introduces a delicious new time-saver feature.
The Splatoon 3 mobile app is already great, offering a lot of add-on features to bolster your Nintendo Switch shooter experience. This latest update, however, adds a lovely time-saving feature as you can now add various Splatoon 3 widgets directly to your phone’s home screen.
It seems like a small improvement, but it will keep you from opening the Nintendo Switch Online app, followed by the Splatoon 3 app, every time you want to check your stats or current stage rotation. Instead, you can jump straight to your favorite resources without having to open the NSO app.
[Nintendo Switch Online app]Version 2.3.0 has already been released. You can now add Splatoon 3 widgets to your home screen on iOS and Android! iOS sizes are: – Battle logs (small, medium) – Stage schedule (medium, large) – Current gear (small, medium) – Album (small, medium, large) pic.twitter.com/fVdUroTqSkSeptember 27, 2022
Widgets work on Android and iOS devices, but first you need to make sure the Nintendo Switch Online app is updated to the latest version. To do this, simply go to the Nintendo Switch Online app page on the App Store or Google Play and tap ‘Update’ if necessary.
When you have downloaded the latest version of the app, tap and hold any empty space on your phone’s home screen. Then tap on ‘Widgets’ and scroll down to ‘Nintendo Switch Online’. You will now see widgets for your battle logs, current equipment, schedule and stage rotation, and your photo album.
Just tap on one of these widgets, followed by ‘Add’ and it will appear on your home screen, easily visible without needing to open the app. Of course, you’ll still need to load the app if you want to order new gear and items to pick up in-game, as well as interact with other features like the brilliant Wandercrust minigame.
Still, it’s a good update for anyone who likes to see their stats and gear at a glance. And it might even make it easier to see if your favorite Splatoon 3 map is currently rotating.
