The NookPhone is a smartphone in New Horizons. It is included in the initial Deserted Island Getaway Package from Tom Nook of Nook Inc. Tom Nook gives the player the NookPhone on the day after the island orientation party, after discussing the fees the player has to pay. The NookPhone can be accessed by pressing the ZL button on the Switch controller, or SL when playing with a single Joy-Con.
In the 1.5.0 Fall Update, a newly added app in NookLink has been added, where the player can access their Reactions through their real-world smartphone.
In the 1.9.0 Update players will be able to access the custom design portal straight from their Nookphone.
The initial apps on the phone include:
Camera - The player can take a photo of themselves using the + button, and the picture will be sent to the Nintendo Switch system album. Taking a picture of themselves earns the player 100 Nook Miles if they have Nook Miles+.
Critterpedia / Bestiary (UK only) - This app is unlocked once the player has caught 1 bug/fish and hands it to Tom Nook to study. It is an encyclopedia of all the fish and bugs (sea creatures were added in the Wave 1 summer update) you have caught. Fish and bugs can be donated to Blathers in the museum and (if donated) are marked on the app with an owl icon.
DIY Recipes - Allows the player to view their DIY recipe list. This app is unlocked once the player has attended Tom Nook's lesson on DIY crafting or using the workbench once.
Custom Designs - Allows the player to view their list of Custom Designs they made. The player starts out with some designs by Nintendo. The app can be updated to include Pro Designs by purchasing a kit from the Nook Stop for 800 Nook Miles.
After the 1.9.0 update, players are now able to upgrade the app even further to add 50 more Custom Design slots and 50 more Pro Design slots, as well as expanding the Pro Designs options to umbrellas, small handheld flags, uchiwa fans and photo standees, by purchasing the "Custom Design Pro Editor+" upgrade from the Nook Stop for 2,000 Nook Miles. It is also possible to access the Custom Designs kiosk from this app, by clicking the X button, after purchasing the "Custom Designs Portal" upgrade at the Nook Stop for 300 Nook Miles.
Map - Allows the player to view their island's map, including a player's home, other player's homes (if they have played New Horizons), and residents' homes.
Passport - Allows the player to change their title and passport photo. They can also add an additional comment.
Call Resident - If the player has a second player that lives on the island, they can play together using 2 Joy-Cons. The player must choose who to play with first, then press the SL and SR buttons on the 2 Joy-Cons respectively.
Rescue Service - The player can be rescued for 100 Nook Miles. If the player is in a building, the application will not work.
Island Designer - Unlocked once the player has a 3-star rating and when K.K. Slider visits the island. The player can make paths (separate paths can be purchased for 2,000 Nook Miles) that lead somewhere on the island. The player can also purchase waterscaping and cliff-construction permits for 6,000 Nook Miles each.
Nook Shopping - Unlocked once the player has purchased 100 items from the Nook Shopping service on the Nook Stop. The player can use the app the same way they would use the regular Nook Shopping interface.
Best Friends List - If the player has a friend on the Nintendo Switch, the player can communicate with each other.
