You can redeem the Nook Miles that you have accumulated to unlock access to the Island Life 101 app on your NookPhone in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
This is yet another new addition that Nintendo has introduced with the game’s free and content-packed 2.0.0 update, which will now let you redeem 400 Nook Miles to order the Island Life 101 Service from the Nook Stop multimedia terminal in Resident Services.
Once unlocked, you will be able to access the Island Life 101 app from your NookPhone straight away. This is a service that has been created to help welcome newcomers and returning lapsed players to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, a resource that offers pointers on what to do and how to get the most from your Nook Inc. Deserted Island Getaway package.
You are encouraged to check the app every day “for useful tips about how to make the most of island living,” which will help to break down everything that you can occupy your time with on your island.
Once activated, you will need to wait for Tom Nook and Isabelle to post their first notice. You will be able to refer back to these tips at any time, and, while these are promised to be sent to you every day, there is an option within the Island Life 101 app that will let you stop receiving tips whenever you wish.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
