Case insensitive search for non-Latin characters

Recommended Posts

When I try to search songs with Latin title (or another tag) the case is insensitive, but with Cyrillic tags search results contains only items that case are match.

But is it bug and need to be fixed. The clause of the bug not in Android settings, Android provides you sqlite3. Sqlite 3 supports UTF-8 and UTF-16, but doesn't works with case-insensitive LIKE and ORDER BY for characters that out of ASCII-range. I found a several ways to resolve this problem:

- ICU extension for sqlite3 (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3944207/unicode-support-in-android-ndk)

- CursorWrapper (https://gist.github.com/ramzes642/5400792)
- Create additionally field for search and store therein lowercase'd text


Please don't forget for non-English users ;)
