    I'm am asking if anyone ever bothered ot still do use these apps listed below.

    3DS Sound = A music player for MP3 files on the sd card, also records sound from microphone.
    3DS Camera = Take pictures and records videos in 3D, Also can scan qr codes.
    Face Raiders = Preinstalled game title that you take pictures of people faces and shoot them using augmented reality
    AR Games = Preinstalled games requiring Character cards Specially designed for Augmented Reality, features and games depends on the cards used, displays 3D rendered character models as well.
    Daily log = View records of system usages, such as games played number of times, how long for each, date time period etc.
    Mii Maker = Used for creating "Miis" Used in various games such as Super smash bros for 3ds. (Mii characters can be customized with costumes and special moves to fight in the game)
    Mii plaza = If i had to describe this, it would probably be the thing you play the most if you bought a 3ds without a game to play, but not often as they require play coins which you don't get easily. One of the main uses of street pass feature. Collects people into your plaza akin to wii plaza prade, to participate in games, like exchange puzzles in puzzle swap, or travel through the find mii game
    Miiverse = Social communication app for nintendo users. (Nintendo version of twiter for video games)
    Web browser = Browse the internet. (NOT FOR INSTALLING HOMEBREW OR HAX)

    And for bonus, these are from eshop.

    Pokedex 3D Pro = Lightweight pokedex like app that displays information for all (Most) pokemon from the game. Allows viewing 3D rendered Models and Taking pictures.
    Save Data Backup = I think is supposed to copy the save data from the game card to use on the eshop download.
    Smash Controller = Allows your 3DS to be used as a playable controller in Super Smash Bros For WIi U Without the need for a game.
    Youtube = Obvious isn't it?
    Hulu = See above.... still obvious....
    Netflix = If you didn't know, is obvious.
    Flipnote 3D = A drawing app to create "Flip note" Animations.
    Swap Note = Send messages to people on your friends list.

    So i am just curious if anyone ever bothered to use the listed apps or still does. :)

    Rarely, just games.
    Youtube and netflix and all that have atrocious quality on the 3DS.

    Mii plaza is the only one that I really used in the beginning. Everything else I used once and was done.

    I look at the log activity, but very rarely. Used the camera once, played Face Raiders once. Browser to launch HBL (to set up menuhax), and I've started Miiplaza four or five times. That's it. They're all in a folder at the very end now.

    Sometimes I check the Activity log, kinda sucks it's bugged and it display 9999Hrs of System Config and Curtain Call which breaks the "play time daily" graphic.

    Aside from that... Sometimes Miiverse to draw I guess.

    Sometimes, to listen to music.
    Rarely, to shoot photos (obviously).
    No.
    No.
    Sometimes, to check how many hours I have on certain games.
    Rarely. I've already made (probably) all the Mii characters I need.
    Only if I have a StreetPass hit. And trust me, there aren't a lot of 3DS owners in Hungary. :(
    Twice or thrice a week.
    A lot.
    I don't have it.
    I don't have it.
    I don't have it.
    No. The Internet Browser's player plays YouTube videos in a better quality, and there's support for 3D videos and speed control.
    I don't have it.
    It's not in Europe, and even if it was, I wouldn't use it.
    No. It was only fun for ~10 minutes.
    That's Flipnote in Europe, right?
    I don't have it downloaded. It doesn't really serve a purpose after it's been shut down.

    I'm a fan of mii plaza and all of the games that are involved with that. Granted, I never go out of my way to get play coins or streetpasses, but when I do I love to work on my collection of puzzle pieces haha. It's also a lot of fun to use daily log, but other than that I don't use much.

    It would've probably been possible if someone cared enough to document it when it was still alive. That way, it would be possible to create a homebrew server for it, like Wiimmfi or RiiConnect24.

    Oh wait.
    I thought that was a 3DSWare, not the Backup part of the HOME Menu.

    So is called Nintendo Letter box in europe instead of Swapnote. Interesting.
    If you mean the actual health and safte (NOT FBI INSTALLER) Then I can added and anyone here can tell me if they use it... which i highly doubt. :creep:
    Oh, right sorry. The save data backup is installed into the firmware. I meant the save data transfer tool from eshop. I think is supposed to copy save data from the game cart to the system to use with the eshop download.

    Also i am surprised someone actually uses 3ds sound. To be honest i figured it be sitting witht the ignore pile like AR games and Face raiders, also if anyone uses pokedex 3D, did they find it helpful when playing pokemon games at all?
