Deleting a TouchCast Locally and on the Server

You can either delete a TouchCast locally (meaning deleting the TouchCast on the iPad and not on the server) OR you can delete both on the local copy and the server copy (which deletes your TouchCast permanently).  

All TouchCasts made on an iPad will appear in "My TouchCasts," regardless of whether or not they've been made public or which channel they've been uploaded.

If your TouchCast was never uploaded or made "public," then deleting locally on the iPad will always result in a permanent loss of the TouchCast.

In the examples presented below, the TouchCasts have been made "public" meaning that it has been uploaded to our server and is viewable to others in the app and on the web.
