WiiConnect is a tool to connect Wii users to eachother, without the hassle of Nintendo's "safe" crap. It will eventually be able to do many things (hopefully) listed below.

Feature List

  • Homebrew Browser integration, or a homebrew downloader made by me if integration doesn't work out
  • Chat (Hopefully many protocols eventually)
  • E-mail (POP3, IMAP, SMTP)
  • Public Profiles
  • News Reader (RSS feed reader, with a Wii News RSS feed)
  • Ability to poke other users on WiiConnect, no matter what feature they are using
  • And More!
