    Considering that the creator stop all development all of the sudden for "personal reasons" I wouldn't use any of it's variants.

    so then, how will we download games and install the WUP files into the wii u?

    Loadiine is porbablly the other alternative, but its more work compared to WiiU USB Helper

    I'm always late to the party, when the system and games are cheap.

    I'm using uTikDownloadHelper, it still works. But not so many titles are on WiiU EShop anyway, and even so, not so many good games are available neither.

    Why was it stopped?

    More importantly, why'd he completely halt usage of the program? That's not cool.

    What? but why? there was so much potential with this app and you could download almost any game from virtual console to wii u retail stuff :(

    There are other alternatives like JNUS and such, but I really liked the interface of this app

    Fortunately for me, I already have all the games I like on my hard drive, so I don't need this anymore.

    Somewhere, out there...
    Um, it seems to still open for me also. I haven't downloaded anything today, but I didn't get that discontinued message...

    It continues to function for most people if it was already installed before being discontinued, but you won't be able to migrate or reinstall it.

    There are plenty of other options, including the workaround on Reddit, so no need to freak out, guys. The party ain't over yet, but I'd advise to start getting what you need.

    I guess we're not part of the "it continues to function for most people"
