Great write up! Having been an avid Nintendo player since the NES came out, this is really one of their best systems from a UI standpoint, especially for new users. But some things I’d love to see addressed in future updates:
- Friends UI: Would love to see better organization of this list. Once a user gets 20+ friends, the current structure can be a bit cumbersome. Especially when you have 5 friends named Andy. Who is who? Maybe a nickname functionality could help?
- Security: Since the device is very mobile, maybe a pattern lock screen of some sort when unlocking the device. Optional of course
- eShop: There are only two settings: require a password every time or not. If the user has it set to require a password, they can’t even browse before having to sign in. Maybe move this step to point of purchase?
- Streetpass: This is more of a feature request. Love Streetpass from the 3DS and again with how mobile the system is, this would be a great fit!
