Make friends with 'Wii Friend Number' Facebook app


Forget about complicated telephone mnemonic devices to help you remember your sixteen-digit Wii friend code. Heck, forget about Joystiq's own lists of reader friend codes. As is often the case, where Nintendo hasn't offered a suitable solution for online gaming, gamers make their own and Sam Lu's Wii Friend Number app on Facebook is as good a solution as we've seen.

You already use Facebook to keep in touch with your pals, so rolling your console number as well as your game specific numbers (ugh) into your profile is smart thinking. Matchmaking you with your pals that have the same games, that's even smarter. Add the app and let us know if you agree in the comments.
