The world of homebrew applications on the Switch is fantastic, however with them typically coming in NRO format that means they must be launched from the Album using Applet Mode or utilizing an already installed application with Title Redirection. What if there was a way to install them directly on the home menu alongside the rest of our applications? Although we’re not installing the applications themselves, we can get pretty close thanks to the power of Forwarders, essentially shortcuts to the NRO files themselves. This is made incredibly easy thanks to NSP Forwarder Generator, an operating system agnostic application that runs directly in a web browser. This will require a modified Switch, knowing the basics of how to navigate it, and a few minutes of your time to generate a few awesome Forwarders for the Switch.
