Devicescape passed a cool milestone this week: 1 million registered users for the Easy Wi-Fi application. Of course, as I write this, I’m immediately reminded of the scene in Austin Powers where Number Two has to disabuse Dr Evil that his $1M demand is impressive. In the web world, 1M is “no big deal”. After all, Facebook just published their user base and it was something insane, like over 130 million! Still, in the world of Wi-Fi, we think 1M is a good number, and we’re certainly quite proud and even a little surprised. It wasn’t that long ago that we were monitoring single digit daily registrations and logins. So, many thanks to all of our membership out there. Your feedback, enthusiasm and, yes, criticism, has been much appreciated and truly helpful in making more and more out of our service. Now that we’re at this milestone, we’re thinking “what’s next?” and planning for the future. We have lots of cool ideas in mind. Please do try to drop us a line on what you’d like to see: leave a post in our forums, on the blog, or even PM us directly. Thanks again.

Unfortunately, Apple doesn’t provide developers with any way to respond to the reviews that are posted there, so to those asking questions in that forum we’re sorry, we have no way to respond to you. If you’re still looking for an answer, please try our own discussion forum where we try to answer every question in a timely manner. On to the reviews now though… I wanted to highlight some of my favourite reviews from the App Store, and perhaps answer some of the questions I see in there frequently. Favourites: From martino13: Awesome Incredible time saver. A must-have app. From KennMSr: It’s About Time It’s a shame AT&T didn’t provide this app themselves when they release[d] the service, considering how many time the[y] released a teaser then retracted the service. … From CieloBrezza: Much needed for Wifi users Awesome app, truely a must-download for AT&T iPhone users. Saves time and trouble. And finally, from TradeYourselfIn: Exactly as advertised People need to read the damn description, before giving…
