point taken. @Richard Bronosky's answer is the best here.

comment Who needs an external on/off Wi-Fi button?
I would argue a physical switch gives you one more thing to worry about. My guess is that these switches were put on by hardware makers in the early days of wi-fi due to poor software/battery life problems, and they've never been removed.

comment appropriate international icon for “deals”
Good suggestion phillip--I did try but it looked "funny". But logically it should probably have one.

comment appropriate international icon for “deals”
I like the local currency suggestion, however I think that will be quite difficult to implement properly. I'll post what I have if that might be useful.

comment Best practice for overriding a pincode in a native iOS app?
well i'd argue that license plate numbers are just as hard to remember as numbers UNLESS in your mind you can combine some of the letters into symbols. In your example, for instance, I can remember 'brase' as a single (phonetic) symbol, so i'm only required to remember 4 symbols total: 'brase', 'g', 'k', 'f'. (guess this is tangential to your original point)

You may be able to sidestep the issue by providing an Undo function?
