    Europeans can scan the picture above using the 3DS camera to use know use red, blue, green, purple and orange inks along side black. Look at the source below if you're having trouble. Americans just have to update.

    Awwww hell yeeeaaaah. This is what I needed.

    Well, what I actually need is to get my 3DS XL on the 28th soon. My current 3DS touchscreen is too inaccurate to draw anything on. :(
    The enlarged touch-screen is quite an improvement but I need a screen that really works.

    It's nice how they added this but it only allows you to choose one colour for the entire message. :\

    Gah, I stopped using letter box when Nintendo wiped my entire 3DS during a repair.

    This may tempt me back into using it...

    There's another app that's free in the Shop. This one isn't available to all of Europe so if you're somewhere where it isn't supported, just change your region to UK to bypass it. I did so on my Australian 3DS and it worked.

    Cool, I thought the IR thing was only for the CPP.
    The fact that this is possible interests me.

    wait, what if there was some sort of hack that you could do on Swapnote and that's why they're updating it? :O

    God I hate this app. I got tired of it because every single fucking day, I was always getting notifications for this app and it was just stupid messages by people on GBAtemp. I'm sorry, I love you all, but I hate being spammed with stupid drawings.

    Try using the d-pad when creating a new note, it allows you to cycle through the available colors.

    Other than that...yeah, it's pretty useless ._.
