Create handwritten 3D notes and send them to your friends! Add stationery, photos, sound recordings, and more!
Swapnote lets you create handwritten notes and then share those notes with other Swapnote users on your friend list via the StreetPass features. Nintendo might even send notes to you too! As your note collection grows and you spend Play Coins, you’ll unlock new features and be able to personalize messages even further by changing stationery patterns, attaching photos and sound recordings, writing and drawing in 3D, and more. You’ll even be able to surprise your friends with secret notes that they can only open on a certain date! Passing handwritten notes to your friends is a breeze, regardless of whether they’re sitting across the room...or across the world!
Please note that the SpotPass feature of Swapnote (the ability to send notes to friends over the Internet) has been stopped as of October 31, 2013. We greatly appreciate your understanding. Learn more >
