Grabbed iTap to help my wifes transition from iOS. She loved it for the first 20 minutes, until she tried switching back to Chinese and realised it didn't seem to support it.

Back to searching I guess.

+Ivica J. Also, make sure your running a legitimate copy downloaded from Google Play. There are pirated copies of this software out there that are old and contain viruses.

There is also another app of the same name in the market, so make sure your requesting support from the right developer.

Has anyone seen a solution that lets you add users to the search index? They aren't IContent so you can't add them to the default search pipe.  SitefinityProfiles are IContent but they throw a null ref exception if you add them and try index.

Has anyone figured out a nice way to filter news widgets by user preferences? I'd like to allow users to pick a bunch of categories they're interested in and only show those on the majority of widgets.

I could write a custom control that does this filtering, but I'm looking for a slightly more out of the box solution (if possible).

Anyone know if there's something like the IProductExpressionFilter for other modules?

Was there a webinar called 'Continuous Development and Deployment with Telerik Sitefinity' last week? I appear to have missed it (due to it being at 5am), but it doesn't appear to be on the normal post recording list (http://www.sitefinity.com/developer-network/webinars/webinars-on-demand)

0-40: Overview of Continuous Delivery (nothing Sitefinity Specific)
40: Source Control Tips
46: Database Versioning vs Backup
48: DLLs vs Source Control
50: Deployment - Web Deploy + Some Code Sync (I think?)
54: Manual
56:NLB Deployments
59: Site sync
60: A couple of questions

Overall fairly dissapointing, nothing was very sitefinity specific and at no point did I see anything happening on checkin meaning it's not really continous.  It's nice to see Telerik starting to think about this type of thing but I'm guessing I wasn't really the target of this talk.

I'd like to see Sitefinity take on a config via migrations style that lets me delete my database and get back to the same place I was within seconds (meaning I can deploy and upgrade any environment).  I know the API exists but it's not quite at a level that could do the above yet.  (At the very least a massive export/import tool would be at least a start).

(Disclaimer: I'm not a fan of code sync or site sync)

Has anyone run Sitefinity in Azure Cloud Services before?  I know that search doesn't work and you can't update the config files after deploy but I was wondering if anyone had any more insights/experience with it.

Specifically I'm wondering if it's possible to use the Autoscaling ability due to Sitefinities need to have the server urls in the config (presuming for cache clearing - http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/documentationarticles/ensuring-content-consistence-on-all-nodes which I dont' think works in azure anyway)

That seems similar to my experiences so far, I've just seen a number of people claim it to be rather fast in various forum posts which confused me.

Alexander decided to write a screensaver. Yes, that's right, it creates 18 quake bots and lets you spectate all of them. At once.

Apparently having Betty in my name was against Google's ToS... Such a load of ass.
