    Hmm...
    Isn't an app like this in blatant violation of nintendowifi.com's TOS? ROMs and homebrew are at least in some kind of legal grey area, but this sure isn't. Good job on the prog, but this is something I can see Nintendo getting upset about.

    Programs that read info from a website, even as benign as for game stats, are very much in violation of the site's terms of services. It's accessing their databases in ways they don't want, and mass distribution like these programs border on DDOS attacks since they can hit the DBs pretty quickly.

    Looks pretty cool, does this support DS games aswell, or just Wii games?
    Edit: Just checked the site, it seems that it does.

    You must be kidding. This one just access the website and formats the data into a easier to read format. Nothing more nothing less.

    ROMs in grey area? They're outright ILLEGAL to Nintendo.

    As an explanation to my comment:
    At the bottom of every major website, tucked away under all the ads and useless links, is a little link "Terms of Service." Read it, or try to if you can't read legalese. It is there to prevent programs exactly like this. I'm sure this is a benign little program, and its intentions are harmless. Still, without approval from Nintendo, it can in all legal aspects be considered an attempt at a DDoS attack. Think about it, read Wikipedia, and you'll see the same (for an anecdotal story, read about the Javascript code eBaumsworld used to DDoS Somethingawful.com, you'll see it's in the same vein as this program). I bring it up because I know similar independant projects that tried to do similar things with other websites, and were promptly required to stop.
    But I don't intend to make any ill judgement towards this program, it's creators, or it's users. [​IMG]
