About the developer

I am Filip Němeček from the Czech Republic.

I have been developing software close to ten years and in the last few primarily focused on iOS and Apple platforms.

SwitchBuddy was created because I was frustrated by the clumsy process required to transfer screenshots from Switch to my phone.

Android version was developed by my friend Milan Suchomel.
