Boingo for iOS Adds Option to Buy Wi-Fi as an In-App Purchase

Wireless internet provider Boingo offers specialized apps for every major phone or computer platform, but iOS users now have the moderate advantage of being able to sign up almost instantly through their iTunes account. The latest version of Boingo Wi-Finder for iOS includes the option to buy Wi-Fi as an in-app purchase, rather than getting access with a Boingo account. Unlike the general $7.95 Boingo mobile subscription, the plan appears to be iOS-only, with unlimited use on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch for $7.99 a month.  The goal is pretty clearly to lower the barrier to making Boingo payments — the above pop-up message appears the first time you launch the app, asking if you want to set up a recurring monthly subscription. For users who don’t want the plan, it’s still possible to sign in with an ordinary Boingo account, but it’s a quick and decent option for ... (more)

Apple announces new $229 16GB iPod touch: 4-inch Retina display, no rear-facing camera, CyanogenMod may offer a “heavily privacy-focused” version and more

By Ryan Kamauff Here are the top mobile news and stories of the day. Apple announces new $229 16GB iPod touch: 4-inch Retina display, no rear-facing camera - Apple has announced their latest iPod Touch offering. The iPod touch was a huge seller at first, because it allowed people to get into iOS in a non-iPhone way (I had a friend who got a dumb phone and a iPod touch – because “WiFi is everywhere”). It used to be as powerful as the iPhones it mimicked, but no longer. I think the lack of a rear camera will be a huge hit to its value to the customer, especially when iPad Minis can be had for $329, and numerous Android devices for far less. Via The Verge, more here.
