Nintendo Fan Network?

I found this strange DSiWare app when browsing for things that are free, but it doesn't seem to do anything... It seems to be trying to connect to a baseball field's Wi-Fi with no success.

What does this app do exactly?

Apparently it is an app that can only be used in Safeco Field in Seattle, WA.

It is useless everywhere else.

I guess it is b/c NoA's HQ is in Seattle, WA so maybe they sponsor the Mariners, that app is to be used to get stats and stuff while you watch the game. According to the description, there is even a kiosk where you can rent DSi systems so that you can follow the game on your system. It is like bringing a TV to the stadium with you so you can get those little behind the scene insights that the broadcasters give while announcing the game.

They don't just sponsor the Mariners they own the team

That's kinda neat, actually.

Baseball isn't my cup of tea, but it'd be nice to have an enhanced play-by-play there for those who do.

I think someone said in an earlier post that the app couldn't be uninstalled. Whether or not that's true, I don't know.

I just deleted it with no trouble so that busts that myth.

Okay, that's good to know. I don't think it was a myth, just someone's claim. :)
