    @manton @matthewlive Turns out this is similar to what Omnigroup do in OmniGraffle 6 for Mac - http://support.omnigroup.com/omnigraffle-6-upgrades - but they are locating the application to do it.

      @manton Bingo. I wonder if anyone is brave enough to try this :)

        @manton Added bonus is it removes risk for the customer. Risk-free trial of new app, no interruption to past experience / workflow.

          @manton @jury Yeah, of course they can be advised when it is safe to remove their old version. Its just during that interim period. Could even detect when canOpenURL still returns YES in a week and remind them they can remove the old app.

            Proposal: How to bring upgrade pricing to your iOS and Mac apps http://transition.io/proposal-how-to-bring-upgrade-pricing-to-your-ios-and-mac-apps/ - let me know what you think /cc @manton @jury

              @manton the deep link tracking is very handy, but in-app analytics is also vital, and the two are somewhat linked. I haven’t found anybody that has a pay-for service for this that does not track users across other apps/platforms. which is shady

                @manton Thanks for the mention and update on CoreInt. Tapstream looks interesting but aren’t you concerned about these “free” services (similar issue with Flurry) that are tracking and mining our customers across apps and platforms?

                  Looks like Apple dev site is having serious problems. My certs have all disappeared and “We’ll be back soon” now

                    @manton @sunlit OK, thanks for the info. I was wondering because I have looked and not found an app analytics company that charged money (= good) and did not mine the data. I wish Hockey supported lightweight analytics.

                      @manton hey I was listening to core int today and you mentioned tracking user activity in Sunlit. What do you use for that - service like Flurry (bit scummy that one) or your own?

                        What is the *right* way to have a UIView that contains subviews with content-sensitive heights (e.g. UITextView) resize to show all their subviews at optimal size (intrinsicContentSize of each), within the context of auto layout?

                          @danimal thanks that's great info. Will pass it on to client
                          marcpalmer
                            @danimal ok so you had different configuration for the different accounts, to pull in different profiles for builds? Interesting
                            marcpalmer
                              How do orgs with multiple dev teams and apps (e.g. game company) deal with the 100 test device limit? Can you get multiple ADC accounts that have the same company ID in the app store? Link accounts? Or stick to 100 devices across whole co? (insane?!)

                                So has anyone radar'd apple to make Xcode fail an Archive task if the portal has a newer version of the prov profile being used? Would catch a LOT of problems with udids missing
                                marcpalmer
                                  Argh. Why when I create a new Distribution profile for adhoc in Dev portal does it then try to auto-create a iOS Team profile that is stuck in "Pending" state and Xcode will not refresh list of profiles to include the new distribution one?

                                    Every time I have to make a complex UI in IB that also has runtime adjustments/dynamic views added in code I weep at the pain of doing this with auto layout.

                                      @muncman turns out it was easy by editing the XML source of the storyboard. Change the <scrollView> to <view> in the section for that scene/controller, where key="view". Seems IB cannot change the root element type there.
                                      marcpalmer
                                        @muncman hmmm, seems so strange that there is seemingly some data somewhere stored to indicate what kind of root view a controller can have in IB. It's not the superclass of the VC. I have a hunch how to do it...
