5 Apps You Should Try on Your Nintendo Switch



The Nintendo Switch was first released on March 3, 2017, and is now a little over three years old. An important feature of the Nintendo Switch is its distinctive home-and-away design that enables you to play your games while waiting for the line somewhere or in front of your TV. It’s a convenient gadget, especially for commuters with a very busy way of life.


When the company first launched its new gaming console, many people went into a wild spin. Having a portable gaming console, modifying it from being handheld to dock in just a few seconds, was something that everyone wished for a long time. Today, the Nintendo Switch is as well known as the other gaming consoles.


The other great thing about the Nintendo Switch is its large quantity of games. The console saw one of the best libraries in gaming history in just its first year, and a lot of other must-have games are being released each month.


Even with the nearing release of the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch is still the most captivating console today, and it has a lot of amazing games on the list. Other than the Nintendo Switch games to play, you should also try these apps on your console. So, here are some of the apps that you can access on your Nintendo Switch.

Coloring Book

Just as the name of the app suggests, this app lets you color images in pages. We experience stress and anxiety daily, with a lot of deadlines to chase, and the problems you see on various social media sites. Coloring has been known to be a therapeutic way of relieving yourself with these stress and anxieties.


You might say that you can just buy a physical coloring book and a few coloring materials, right? This is just something that you can do in a much easier way, and that wouldn’t require you to have and carry anything physically. The best feature that this app has is that it lets you control how you color the images, whether you want to adjust the colors of your shade and choose from 89 different colors.


It even lets you express your creativity in a blank canvass, or choose from 62 accessible images for you to color. You can either do it alone or together with up to four of your friends. Although the app doesn’t give you full control over the images you color, it will never let you commit a mistake and color outside the lines. Well, who would want to color outside the lines, right?


While most people are subscribed to Netflix to watch their favorite TV shows and movies, Nintendo Switch has already partnered with another streaming app called Hulu. Hulu has a lot of great movies and TV shows for you to binge-watch on. They also have their originals such as the “Castle Rock,” “Marvel’s Runaways,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and so much more. 


The app also lets you watch live TV just with the use of your Nintendo Switch. The Hulu app on your Nintendo Switch is very similar to the Hulu app on your smartphone and lets you do just about the very same things. You can look for movie or TV show titles by tapping on the search function, add favorites on your list, and browse by categories or genres.


It is important to note that you will still need to have a paid subscription to access the app. For a low price of $8 each month, you can have access to Hulu’s full library, but the catch is there are still advertisements. So, if these ads bother you, you should opt for the $12 monthly option.


Have you ever wanted to read some comics on your Nintendo Switch? Then InkyPen should be your next go-to app on your Nintendo Switch. Comics have been a great way of entertaining the majority of the people since the 1930s. Now that you can watch your favorite superhero in certain movies, the popularity of comics has been steadily increasing again.


With the use of InkyPen, you are able to access your favorite comics from well-known publishers, the DC Comics, and the Marvel Comics. The app has a friendly user interface, which only means that you won’t be having any difficulty navigating through the app. You can easily find the comic book that you have been looking for, and can even save them for later viewing.


If you have been living under a rock or in a cave, you might not have heard about this app. But there is a good chance that you’re not living in such conditions, right? The app doesn’t need any introduction anymore. We are sure that you have already used this to entertain yourself or just want to watch some videos.


The YouTube on your gaming console isn’t that much different from the one on your smartphone. It lets you easily search various videos, and lets you watch it on a larger screen if your console is docked. We think that you already know that YouTube doesn’t cost you for watching videos, right? 

KORG Gadget

Music enthusiasts and music creators will surely love this app called the KORG Gadget. This app is a well-known program that lets you create your own music, and now Nintendo Switch users have access to this app as well. Using KORG Gadget, you are able to create your own music with the aid of various synthesizers.


Using this app lets you improve and enhance your skills in producing music. Even though the app doesn’t let you import or export your music to the world, you can share your creation with other users of the Nintendo Switch.

Utilize your Nintendo Switch with these apps

Even though the main reason why you bought a Nintendo Switch is to play games, these apps still deserve some attention as well. For all the times when you are too lazy to get your smartphone while playing, your Nintendo Switch will help you with what you need. Other than being able to offer a little bit of convenience, these apps also have a great value to offer.
