To access your Nookphone, use ZL, located on the back of the controller. The Nookphone is quite simple to use, but here’s a rundown of all the apps you’ll have available at first:

  • Camera: the Camera app functions as a screen capturing device. With this, you can take photos that can then be found in your Switch Gallery.

  • Nook Miles: the Nook Miles app is where you can find out how to earn Nook Miles. Completing the achievements in the Nook Miles app will allow you to claim Nook Miles to spend as you please.

  • Custom Designs: this app allows you to create custom designs and custom clothes! You can choose just to make an ordinary design, or one that is tailored specifically for an item of clothing.

  • Map: the map will be very handy when you’re out exploring for the first time. It shows you the location of the airport, Resident Services, as well as the island homes (including your own).

  • Passport: Your passport will be visible to other players that you interact with during multiplayer modes. You can change your photo, title and comment whenever you like. You can unlock new titles by completing Nook Miles achievements.

  • Rescue Service: The rescue service can be called if you ever find yourself stuck or lost on your island. They will fly you back to your house in an emergency.

The Nookphone will gain more and more apps as you progress.
