    I'm sure it would be a huge seller. Just like WiFi Booster...
    Except I'm smarter than the guy who wrote WiFi Booster. I'll put a $499.99 price tag on it. With no trial. If it's that expensive, it HAS to be good, right?

    Absolutely! What a great business model. People would be crazy to not buy it.

    Ok - it's about ready for beta. Let me know your MS account name, and send me the $500 (there's an extra penny charge for the privilege of getting the app early, bugs and all), and I'll put you on the list for the beta. You'd be crazy not to.

    Hell, charge me for two licenses. I'm real crazy. I hope the bugs are extra special too!

    ROFL! Looks like I'm going to be retiring sooner than I thought. Or quitting my job and developing apps full-time while my wife and I move into a motor home and travel the country!

    That's a really good question. If I were in charge of the testers, it wouldn't be.

    One of the reasons I've chosen WP for was the security and solidness.
    With the news like that, I start to think that there is trend starting to form, which has to be addressed immediately and with no "mercy" at all.

    Absolutely fake. It is the same as the 3G booster.

    hopmedic your are correct, but never discount the placebo effect, if someone "thinks" its helping them, then there's nothing you can say to change their minds lol
    I think this is somewhat related, about Safari feeling Snappier after updates... Can somebody explain to me the whole "Safari seems snappier" thing? - MacRumors Forums

    A real Wi-Fi signal booster is a cooking pot lid, like these:
    tatonka.jpg
    (A mesh stainer instead of a lid can also work, by some accounts better)
    Simply keep the smartphone (antenna) in the focal point of the lid and point the lid, in the same manner as a parabolic antenna, toward the Wi-Fi router.
    The lid increases the strength of the Wi-Fi signal usually with 1 gradation which you can easily check on the screen of you phone.

    I know this trick it is not quite practical but in some situation can save you.

    After reading this thread, I was wondering, can an app publisher ask for additional permissions by an update? Most users generally click "update all", isn't it?

    I feel bad that the people at MS are only trying to increase the number of apps in the marketplace and not the quality. Been seeing a lot of fake apps these days. Some of them don't provide a trial and scam the gullible people who end up buying fake stuff. We don't want another malware ridden market, Google is good at it.
