    Rev Homebrew Browser v0.1

    News/release from teknecal

    The Homebrew Browser allows you to grab the latest homebrew applications and games all through your Wii. No longer will you have to take your SD card out to load the files or transfer the files from your computer to the Wii or even use your computer. Once you install a homebrew application and you no longer want it on your SD card, you can delete it as simple as that!

    No more dead links, no more extracting files, no more finding out if there is an icon.png and meta.xml in the homebrew application/game!

    Features
    Auto updating when your Homebrew Browser version is out of date
    One click download and install for each homebrew application
    One click deletion of homebrew applications
    Able to update your version of a homebrew application once an update comes out
    Caching of the homebrew application pictures
    Limitations
    Currently this application is limited to receiving homebrew applications that only use a single file (boot.dol/elf). E.g. Homebrew applications that load images,etc won't be on the Homebrew Browser list.

    Usage
    Run the included ELF with your favourite method to boot homebrew . Uses the Wiimote Controller with IR.

    A SD card icon under the homebrew application image means that you have the latest version of that homebrew application installed, while a clock icon means you don't have the latest version. You can update your installation of that homebrew application or install new homebrew applications by pressing A. You can delete homebrew applications provided that they have a SD card or clock icon by pressing B.

    Download and give feedback via comments.

    Thumbs up

    All it needs is a better GUI, the ability to install homebrew with multiple folders and the ability to add other servers to download from, but so far I like it.

    Yay! Just like the homebrew database in DSorganize, I'll like this.

    Yep, works fine for me. I just copied the 'homebrew_browser' folder to the 'apps' folder on my SD card, loaded it from the Homebrew Channel, and then waited for about 2 minutes while it downloaded a list of what homebrew apps were available.

    On my TV the top and bottom of the menu were cut off slightly. My TV is PAL 50/60.
