 Is anyone interested in localizing their Android application to Thai or
Vietnamese for delivery on SlideME?  It looks like there is a lot of demand
for localized applications in these countries. We can help developers get
things started, show you how we do our builds, and then see about lining up
people who would be willing to help translate for you. We've got some code
at Masa:  http://code.google.com/p/masa/ for translating back and forth 
between po files and strings.xml so that would assist translations. If there
is enough interest, we will get things started from our side.

1. mute the phone

I am trying to mute the voice call and play something else, but seems
that

AudioManager.setStreamSolo()

is not working.

Am I doing something totally incorrectly? is this even supported by
the current API?

-h

2. GalleryPicker Crash

I'm using MediaStore.Images.insertImage to insert an image into the
images content provider. The insert reports no errors yet when I try
to open the Pictures application I get the following crash:

I tried to use bot forms of insertImage (using bitmap or a filename).
They behave identically.

This crash occurs on a device and in the emulator. The only way to get
rid of the Pictures app crash is to unmount the SD card and then
remount it. The funny thing is that after I do this my image does
appear in the Pictures app.
