So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Swapnote was made to be the 3DS' PictoChat, but most users didn't use it since it lacked the instant messaging feature. It's still an interesting concept, though, especially with the 3D pen.

Swapnote also introduced Nikki, the app's mascot/tutorial guide, whose adorable appearance, expressions, and drawings are probably what's most remembered about the app. She reappeared in the same role for the successor app Swapdoodle, and appears as an Assist Trophy in the Super Smash Bros. series.

Revisional Differences

Hmmm...
To do:
For the December 15, 2020 update, confirm that it was the base title that was updated as opposed to the update title.
  • The July 5, 2012 update allowed for six ink colors, although only one color was allowed per message.
  • The October 31, 2013 update took away SpotPass support, as the feature was being misused to send content that violated the terms of service. All that remains now is StreetPass functionality.
  • On December 15, 2020, an update fixed an exploit reported to Nintendo by 3DS modder MrNbaYoh. Unusually, the page calls this update "Remastered", but this is simply Nintendo's internal terminology (as seen in 3DS SDK documents) for a revised base title.
