The Nintendo Switch is one of our favourite devices for gaming, but could it also replace your iPad or PC. A new app billing itself as a replacement Nintendo Switch OS claims that it could. 

The ‘new operating system’ or ‘nOS’ lets you make notes, to-do lists and calculations. It has a gallery of pre-selected images, a notebook an MS paint-like app and simple puzzle minigame, but some Switch fans are confused about what it is (not yet got the console?
