Getting WordPress stats with the WP7 app

I recently wrote a blog posting with the WordPress WP7 app, noting that I couldn’t get the stats option to work and that it was complaining about the API key. It turns out that the application doesn’t configure itself with your API key (or if it does, it got it wrong) so you have to manually enter the API key for your blog.
Finding the API key took a bit of effort but there is a WordPress post about it: http://windowsphone.forums.wordpress.org/topic/howto-find-your-api-key?replies=1.
Putting the API key into the application is straightforward and, hey presto! Stats now work. I am very impressed with the way you can so easily get graphs of how active the blog is.
