3DS messaging app Swapnote now available everywhere

As promised by the end of the month, Nintendo's 3DS messaging app, called Swapnote, is now available.

It was strangely missing from the Nintendo Download press release sent out this morning, but today's eShop update in all regions brings Swapnote for the low, low price of free. Swapnote is not quite as practical as sending a message from a PS3 or Xbox 360. It doesn't work while in game and isn't instantaneous. (Messages are sent and received over SpotPass.) It does, however, let you attach photos and sounds, and hand write messages (and draw pictures) in 3D to send to friends. There's also an option to send out notes to passers by via StreetPass.

So, this is Nintendo's Christmas gift to you this year. Dozens of eye-popping 3D junk shots from all of your friends.
