Android v1.01 has been released.
It seems to have fixed the login problems.
Awesome, this means I can roll out taking registers for staff on mobile phones over the internet. Thats pretty huge.
The pin code screen buttons are too small on the android version. Any chance of making it bigger?
Also does anyone know how to make the microsoft azure link easier to read? I can add C Names to our domain so something like http://registers.school-name.co.uk would be great.
I was thinking about this some more and I'm pretty certain adding a CNAME to point to the azure address will work. Did you get a chance to try it?
registers.school.sch.uk CNAME http://testdb.servicebus.windows.net/123456789xxxyyyzzz
EDIT: Reading about CNAMEs on wikipedia it seems you can only use the domain name without folders.
I also tried a simple Http redirect but that doesnt work either.

You can't add a CNAME pointing at an HTTP server - DNS and HTTP are different things, so pointing DNS at a website won't work.
The only way I can think of getting your local domain to point at the azure address is via a reverse proxy. So, you set up a reverse proxy which forwards requests for http://blah.blah.com to http://blah.servicebus.windows.net/blah, then point that subdomain at the IP of the reverse proxy.
However, this means that all traffic is traversing your reverse proxy rather than just being redirected.
ah, i knew there was a catch, so the best you can do is make the domain part userfriendly, and add the numbers after. there doesn't seem much point as you'll most likely want to set up the device yourself in person, wont you? Or do you want to get them to email you the udid and set them up remotely?
otherwise, there will be a method coming, that we discussed at BETT, whereby the initial url will initiate a sync that pulls down a config file with multiple lists that can be populated on the server, so you only enter them once. post initial sync the user can just pick from a drop down. but you would have to create a local server to do the initial sync with.
I'll keep the URL I guess. To be fair the android program shortens it to just the numbers after initial login. Its just a pain to type in the first time.
The android version does keep crashing though if you leave it open for any amount of time :/
Just found a few minor bugs in ipad version, e.g. filter present at registration, but i think my server needs the config files updating so will arrange that before logging anything.
Its the iPad version.
Groupcall support just rang me and said it was a known problem. They are fixing it right now and the new version is in testing. They advise going back to the iphone version in the short term.
What? I've just installed 3 test copies of it. Not had that issue yet though, fortunately.
What Android devices are you using with it? I've got it on my Sony Ericsson X10 Pro phone but looking for recommendations for tablets.
