Light Theme

Right now everything is dark/gray and most elements are semi-transparent. It would be nice to have a brighter/light theme for the app.
I took a screenshot of the desktop site and inverted the colors just as a simple example (below link) but it can definitely be improved upon.

More icons for custom lists

The ability to give custom lists icons is nice, but the list of options is pretty small and boring. More like "heart" and "star", less like "bag" and "bars".

SUGGESTIONS: "Physical" vs. "Digital" vs. "All" Database Filter, Pricing Data Change...

While importing my wishlist by hand, I noticed that some games were described as "physical" in the Database, but others weren't. This got me thinking:

10.) Are the games in your database differentiated by Physical vs Digital? Or are all games titles listed once in the database, and if there are both physical & digital copies the game specs will note that? My suggestion is to have it the second way for simplicity, but offer a toggle so we can filter the Database by Physical/Digita/All.

11.) But then this brings up another issue regarding pricing. Are the prices listed in Switch List only the eShop price of the game (even though there are game listings marked "Physical")? If this is the case, then the price alerts sent by Switch List would only take into account eShop pricing (and not physical pricing at Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, etc)? I also assume pricing does not take into account physical game short-runs from Limited Run Games and other similar companies? The reason I ask is because as a collector, I prefer to collect physical games (and only buy digital if the game does not exist in physical version). The pricing information your app uses will affect the way I use your app's price alert system.

If you would like to brainstorm ways to solve these issues and/or implement these (or my previous) suggestions in your app, just email me. I have a few ideas, but won't bore everyone with the details here...

7.) Many of these are announced titles, but aren't available yet. Some are pre-orders. A few are announced only for overseas regions (denoted with ******). A couple are already released (in the U.S.) but still aren't included in your database. Where do you get your game listings from? Is it from Nintendo's official public listings: https://www.nintendo.com/games/game-guide?pv=true#filter/switch|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|-|release|des|-|-|- Or are these games from other sources?

8.) Another issue is that not all games show up when searched in Database. For example, the database has a listing for Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, but it doesn't show up in the results when "Dragon" or "Dark" is typed in... I only found it after typing "Dogma". Subsequent searches for these terms show this game in the results now, but I don't know if that's because I wishlisted it. Another example is the game Forgotton Anne, which doesn't show up when I type in "Forgotten", but shows up when I type in "Anne".

9.) Another issue I encountered was that the search results that come from using the Search Bar on the Home Page vs Database page were different. I understand the Home Page search displays results from all different sections of the site, but that is no excuse to omit relevant results. For example, searching "Super Mario" on the Home Page omits New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe (and probably some other games with the term) from the results, but it shows up when searching from the Database page. My suggestion would be to include all results on the Home Page as well (since that's primarily where users will try searching first). If the search results are too long, then you can list the top 6 followed by a "more..." link which will re-search the terms on the Database page when clicked... and do the same with all the other sections if they have more than 6 results.

Wishlist sorting

Along with default alphabetical I think at least sorting by release date would be good. After the Direct I've got a lot of 2019 stuff on there, it would be nice to see them as they'll be coming. Price could be good, too.

6.) Change app message button from "Send R..." to "Reply".

SUGGESTIONS: Create way to record multiple game editions, DLC, downlad/email feature, more user avatars...,

1.) Please add a way to record multiple copies of games in user's Game List.

2.) Please add a way to notate what copies they are (i.e. Standard, Limited Edition, Collector's Edition, International Version, etc).

3.) Please add a way to see what DLC is available for each game in database (if not available yet) and way to record which DLC you purchased for each game in your game list (can be as easy as a check box by each available DLC in the game).

4.) Please add a way to download/email your Game Collection List and Wishlist (preferably in CSV or other compatible Excel format).

5.) I just thought of this... please add a way for Pro users to upload our own avatars in the app, or add more avatars from popular AAA and indie Switch games.

Make chat text box window overflow to multiline

When entering a large body of text in the chat window, it shows up as a single line of text. It's not too much a problem on desktop but it's harder to edit/view the message on mobile (only tested Android) as scrolling the text box is slow.

Desired Price for Sale Alerts

Add an option to only be notified of a sale if it is at the target price that you specify. This would also be a good way to track how much I'm willing to pay for a game. Idea inspired by camelcamelcamel.com alerts.

Larger screenshots on desktop viewing

When viewing screenshots, it seems well optimized for mobile use, but generally when viewing on desktop it takes up a small portion of the screen. I then noticed that actually making the window smaller sometimes results in the image getting bigger. https://imgur.com/a/aK9vGbW

"Add to List" should be more accessible

Currently the process of adding games to a list is slow as you have to search for a game, click on the game, click on "Add to List", and then choose the list. The first step obviously can't be taken out but it'd be nice to have a button when viewing a list of games to add to a list. Similar to how the "Complete" and "Mark as Playing" buttons appear on My Games page, there could be another button (+) that shows a pop up with all of your lists and allows adding to it easily. Look at grouvee.com for an example on how easy it is to add to a list.

Nintendo Labo

Sorry for the back to back submissions, however the Nintendo Labo Toy-Cons have yet to be added to the database (unless there's a qualification for games to be on the database I'm not aware of).

A way to submit new games not yet in the database

I saw a YouTube roundup of recently announced games, went to SwitchList to add it to my wishlist, but it wasn’t in the db. Now I don’t even remember the name of the game anymore.

It would be nice to have a way to add new games to our wishlist that aren’t in the db yet. Even if it’s just some sort of private note for ourselves until you update.

Link to profile from collections/etc.

I've just noticed that when sharing a collection URL, anybody will be able to see the list and the username attached to it--but there's no direct way to get to that person's profile to view extended information. They'd need to go to the Members section and type the username in. Making it more direct would feel more cohesive.

Game Screen Viewing

Clicking on any of the game screens always opens the first image, and then you have to scroll through all the images to get to the one you want. Since all images are displayed on the game page, it would be nice if the image you click on is expanded rather than it always being the first image in the group. Just a minor detail but I still thought I’d mention it.

Chat log

When chat is active it doesn't take too long for things to scroll to oblivion, so someone returning after several hours might miss a useful response. Would be good to have a place to look that could be counted on to save at least a record of the last day or two.

Consolidate sale emails into one

Right now, you get an email for every single game on your wishlist that is on sale. It would better if you got a single email with a list of all of the games that are on sale at once, periodically.

Sale Sorting

Be able to sort games on sale by things like sale price, percentage off, sale start date, sale end date. Some of the sort options already available in Database would be useful too, like sorting by rating or score.

Allow users to make public lists that can be added to by others. Example, 2D Zelda-like Games. Anyone can add a game, and people can vote on how well they think it matches the list. Rank based on votes.
