    What's wrong with Cognition? Just started implementing it and it's simple, intuitive and well documented so far
    Also Just Works (TM)

    How do you replicate this userpool in case you need to add an attribute to the users (or for any other reasons)

    * how do you migrate user out of cognito.

    * how do I replicate cognito across region (say I have lambdas running in Europe, Americas, Aisa.

    * How do you merge user identities with different email address (say user signed up with email password and wants to add his Facebook account, which has different users

    * my colleague working on app says iOS sdk for cognito is shit.

    I mean, you have to create a new userpool in case you need to add an attribute, how do I do that if my existing user pool already has sizeable amount of users?

    Cognito is all good and well for small user base and hello world kind of application.
    It works out of the box for such use cases.

    @theElectron all good points I didn't thought of so far
    I assumed user pools where cross origin out of the box, since it states I don't have to deal with that kind of things hehe
    So accessing user pools in Europe isn't possible with lambdas in America?
