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.

Community Lists

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.

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.

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.

Price changes

There's of course a Sales section for games which have temporary price changes, but as is games that have a _permanent_ price change go under the radar unless you specifically check their price history. Might be good to have a list of recent price changes. Also, if someone has a game on their wishlist, it's probably worth notifying them of a new permanently lower price like it would if it was on sale.

Better "Back" when viewing screenshots

On the Android app if I'm viewing screenshots, pressing the default Android Back button once has no effect. The second push either exits the app altogether or backs out of the game entry entirely to the list I came in from. Usually the first, I can't accurately reproduce the second. Anyway, seems like the expected action would be that a single press of Back would be the same as pressing Close.

Full database results for front page search

As is right now the site/app starts you in the Upcoming section. Using the search there will only return results currently in that section, unless there are zero. This seems to be one of the more confusing things for people unfamiliar with it, as we occasionally see in chat people wondering why something isn't there. It feels inconsistent that one can search for "Mario" and only get an unreleased 2019 game, but search for "Diablo" and get last year's release. I'd suggest _always_ having the Database Results section showing underneath the regular results for Recent/Upcoming/Announced. Or maybe at least once a certain number of characters has been entered (2? 3?), since having hundreds of results showing there wouldn't be so friendly either.

Database "Collection" issue

Not exactly a bug, but an unintended behavior I think. In the Database you can sort things in various ways and also narrow down to things in your collection by typing in "Collection", but games that legitimately have Collection in their name also get included. Mutant Muds Collection and Mega Man Legacy Collection to name just two. Which means it's NOT really possible to narrow down to just our own games. Maybe our own games could instead be tagged with something like "MyCollection" that's extremely unlikely to show up in a title?

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.

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.

Switch Friend Codes To Games

I think it would be cool if you have added your ninteno switch friend code to your profile, that when you add a game to your collection, you would auto add your friend code to that game. So when you open up the game on switchlist, all nintendo switch friend codes would appear for those who own that game. Or you could have a separate button that you can request to add your friend code to the switchlist game. This would help find friends for a specific game. For example, I just bought diablo 3 and would love to find some more people who are playing it. If I could open up diablo 3 and see who has put their friend code in the game, I could add them and know that they are someone who plays diablo 3.

"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.

Tutorial

It seems as if many people (including myself) really had no idea how many great features Switchlist has when we first downloaded it. When I first downloaded the app, I didn't use it much because I didn't realize how many great features it had. It took me a few months before I revisited the app and really looked at what Switchlist could do. The number of people that download the app and then delete (or just don't use) after a short time might be decreased if a tutorial that highlights the many functions of the app is provided when the app is first downloaded. I for one would have benefited from this and probably would have used the app more when I first downloaded it.

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...

Activity tab enhancements

I like the activity tab, but I sometimes wish I could specify seeing a certain type of activity. Like not many comments are added to games in a day, but you'll rarely see them in Activity because adding things to wishlists or collections is a much more common activity which usually dominates the list of the last 25 activities.

Also, though it shows additions to wishlists and collections, it misses showing when someone adds a game to a custom list.

Add text notes to individual games on lists

We can add games to collection/wishlist/custom lists and write descriptions of the list as a whole for the last group, but it would be good to have notes for individual entries. For Collection one might keep track of where they got the game, or if it's an import copy, or they have two copies, whatever. For custom lists sometimes an explanation of why something makes the list is good, or maybe why it's an edge case that almost doesn't make the list. For my list of grid-based battle tactics games, I'd make a note for games that are on a hex grid rather than a square grid. For a list of PS1->Switch games, maybe a note for a game that is itself a collection, about which games were PS1 to begin with.

Prices for other regions

I think having a way to display prices for other regions would be a great idea. I was just able to purchase Stardew Valley off the Mexican eshop for half the price that it is in the US by just changing my account region. I am also aware that Japan sometimes gets game releases earlier than we do here in the US and even get some exclusive games that you can't purchase in the US. I think a feature like this would benefit people like me greatly who are interested in scoring some good deals and are interested in finding games that they can't get anywhere else.

"7 games in Wishlist. That is INF% of the total games released ()."

"13 games in Wishlist. That is 1% of the total games released (1916)."

So it looks like it has a little problem when a person's wishlist rounds to less than 1%? Looking for somebody with a small collection, at the bottom it shows

"6 games in Collection. That is 0% of the total games released (1916)."

So it's not a problem everywhere.

Company pages

Right now we can select a publisher and it will show the list of games they've published. Likewise with developers. I think it might be useful to allow, at simplest form, a text description which could allow links to their official presences online. Web site, Twitter, YouTube.

Descriptions missing paragraph breaks

I'm looking at new entries like Saints Row the Third and Strike Suit Zero, and their descriptions are presented as one chunk of text whereas on nintendo.com they are split into paragraphs. Since it's not easy to sort by added-to-SwitchList date it's hard to say how long this has been happening, but it seems like at least a week (Deponia is affected and was added April 11). Probably same time other changes happened that screwed up SwitchList's data collection?
