Professional software developer and researcher, occasionally contracting but spending most of my time as a research associate in London.

Developer of Six to Eight (sixtoeightapp.com), an iOS client for the Stack Exchange network. It's free, so why not take a look?

@DigiOzMultimedia This will come when the Stack Overflow API allows it. At the moment, I'm finding time to work on the new Inbox support

@KevinMontrose Ah, excellent. I only ask because I didn't want to use an "expensive" query just to throw away the results (expensive both in bandwidth used, and for you to compute).

comment Draft Specification for API v2.0
@KevinMontrose Ah, I missed "no_expiry". Thats grand. The lack of a non-browser auth route is a bit sad - it does render the API unusable (or very difficult to use) from some environments (e.g. command lines).

@KevinMontrose But apps, in principle, must have a fallback "Filter creation" system? For iPhone apps, if there's any possibility that they might break, you have to handle them to avoid the bricking of the app.

@Jeremy Wow, bizarre buglet :). Thanks for the report, I shall fix it in the next release. At the moment, I'm trying to find time to integrate the most requested feature - push notifications. Getting that right is a fiddly issue, but I'll conquer it at some point!

comment When will the API allow posting of questions and answers
Amen. It's beginning to feel like the public API is abandonware - there's been no significant new functionality since early 2010! The only update since then has been exceedingly minor.
