so on the nookphone we've seen 5 apps demonstrated so far. I believe it was also confirmed in an interview somewhere that pattern designing will also be an app. it looks like there's room for at least three more apps, and I don't see any reason why there couldn't be more if you swipe over, so what are your predictions/wishes?

I think one app will be the best friends feature from new leaf, where you could message your best friends while in your own towns if you're both online. it'd be like texting each other, which is super fitting for a phone app

my next guess is a weather app. simple and makes sense for a game where the weather changes all the time

another idea is maybe the in store catalogue that we're used to will become an app where you shop online. it functions exactly the same way, but now it's on your phone.

A weather app is a great idea! I also like the idea of the online catalog.

3 good ideas!  Weather would be great!  The Beautiful Town ordinance was nice, but when you needed weeds or trash for Weed Day or MEOW Coupons, it was a draw back.  And there are some days where if I knew it rained or snowed, I wouldn't bother running around watering things.  

I would love an app for progress on tasks.  Warcraft back in the day (and I assume still) had a Quest Task you could click on to see where you were in a Quest.  I use to, but got tired of, in City Folk writing down that so & so needs a fossil/shirt.bug/fish.  And most of the time I would slip my mind if I didn't get it done that day.  

I fear Nook Miles will take it away, but I hope they bring back the Badges from New Leaf and the phone could be used to track that.  It gave people who play the games forever a very long term goal and nice achievement recognization.  

Also if they want to take away the Megaphone & replace that with an app, that could be a possibility and would help uncluter our inventory slightly.

It's probably safe to assume that pattern making will return. It strikes me as a series staple, and it would be odd for them to remove it.

I know this is a long shot, but if animals move off your island. I would love the app of being able to contact them and even inviting them to come back for the day to see whats gone on since they left.

I think its a neat app idea

Good ideas! In addition to the apps we know of, I think we'll also see the following:

• An app to catalog fish/bugs/sea creatures.
• An app similar to the best friends menu in New Leaf! Something that also displays New Horizons version of the TPC. Maybe you can message your friends through this app as well? This might just be me but it'd be cool if you could open and close your "gates" through the app too if you're feeling too lazy to walk down to the port
• A pattern making app/pattern viewing app.
• An app that connects to the Nintendo Switch Online app if there is one. I assume there will be since the Switch doesn't have a camera for qr codes, and one way to get around this is by letting people browse for qr codes through some kind of interface that you can use through your actual smartphone app and through the nookphone.

I'm really looking forward to what the nookphone will actually be capable of! The animation for the islanders when they take out and look down at their phones is super cute fdsfa

Oh, that's a great idea! A Nookphone app that connects to the Switch app. I'm hoping we'll be able to use it to chat while we wifi.

What about an online flea market app? Similar to the flea market from CF in town and combined with the Market Box in Pocket Camp. Being able to sell or trade items with anyone would be cool.

A good & plausible idea Thom.  I've seen this & folks are leery it could happen, but I think it may.  In Population Growing they would send you on missions to return something to animals who left (for me it's constantly returning to Marcy who has left multiple times).  And in New Leaf villagers who left would return to Main Street to say hi.  So this could be a logical next step to me.

Perhaps they'll use some of what Pocket Camp did with the apps, including notices, mailbox, market box, goals, loans, etc.?

Good idea about the Loan and I'll flesh it out a little more.  I'd like to see an Apple Pay or Nook Pay.  And if they even just want to make it for purchases over 100K bells, I'd be happy with that as a start.  One of the tings that prevents me from buying Gracie items is the thought of loading up Bell bags.

Strahd9, I love that idea! It would be a NH shopping card. To expand even more on that, it would be useful to be able to send bells through this app directly to another player in your town (visiting or resident) to save time when making large purchases rather than having to spend a ton of time dropping bell bags in other people's towns when trading or whatever.

Since the Switch doesn't have a microphone (so there would be no megaphone), I'd like to be able to text villagers to ask them where they are.

Not having a Switch yet, I was unaware they have no mic.  I really hope they do go with something like that to make quests easier.  Especially as the places our neighbors can go to has expanded.

Haha yeah! I was thinking that since there'd be no way to use the megaphone without a mic, since our villagers will all have nookphones too it'd be cool if there could maybe be like a gps ping locater app kinda thing??? that when you use it, it ping the villagers location on the map/ui for you!

Weather and catalog apps sound awesome! I don't have any ideas, but I don't like the bland NookPhone name. I'm going to think of mine as a Nookia.

Genius! I am certain that someone on the localisation team has also thought of that one, and it hasn't happened purely because of the potential for a lawsuit!

Nintendo also just generally doesn't like including real-world brand names in their games, with the recent exception of Mario Kart, apparently.

"Nintendo also just generally doesn't like including real-world brand names in their games, with the recent exception of Mario Kart, apparently."
I think that I might've missed something, there!

Usually they ditch these things before they ever get to market so as to avoid any legal issues (or in some cases, they've done so after the fact, such as when they edited the sweeping old lady's greeting in re-releases of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening from "YAHOO!" to "YIPPEE!"), or, in at least one case, because it wasn't appropriate for the target audience (if memory serves, one early suggested name for the Pokemon Honchkrow, as mentioned in an interview, was said to have been "Don Crowleone" ).

I'm pretty sure they included real-life car models in Mario Kart 8 DLC.

Oh yes, you're quite right! I had completely forgotten about the Mercedes partnership! (It's in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, too, and it always slips my mind because I use the City Tripper, there. )

The original Super Mario Maker also featured a number of promotional stages and Mystery Mushroom outfits in the same vein, as well (Mercedes included, funnily enough).

I can only assume that both cases were a result of trying to make some extra profits due to the situation with the Wii U, since it doesn't seem to have happened since - at least not that I can remember.
