Once you have created your own Flipnote, you can then share it with friends and family!
Share With Others
Once Nintendo DSi users become registered users of Hatena's website (
), they can share Flipnotes with others using the community website Flipnote Hatena, a public online service maintained by Hatena Co. Ltd. Connect to the Internet* to upload your own Flipnotes, and to view and download Flipnotes created by others − all from your Nintendo DSi system. You may also view Flipnotes from your personal computer on the Flipnote Hatena website.

Share With Friends
You can also send Flipnotes you have created to a friend using a local wireless connection. Make sure your friend has also downloaded Flipnote Studio to their Nintendo DSi system, and once you've exchanged Flipnotes, you'll automatically be registered as Flipnote friends.
Quick Tip: Frog News − The Frog will inform you if a Flipnote is sent to you via Wireless Communication, or if you've previously attached a note to the current calendar date.
The sender of the Flipnote must tap the
Button on either the tools screen or the details screen of a Flipnote file. The recipient must then watch the title screen on their Nintendo DSi system for instructions.
Choose whether to send the message as is or lock the Flipnote so the receiver cannot edit it − then tap "Find Recipient."
Wait for instructions on the main menu. When a message appears, tap it to complete reception.
