@systempuntoout I added an OS X build, let me know if you have any problems - it seemed to work fine on the two Macs I tested it on.

Actually the issue was the recent addition of gzipping the api response -- which doesn't play nicely with urllib2.urlopen. I am working on a patch that should resolve the issue.

Could you give me the full URL that you tried? If the app didnt crash in a blaze of fire, it's probably thinks that the URL is invalid (there is 'error checking' with a simple regex). Also what version are you running? The newest from github? The v0.3 tarball?

Ya, actually I have been trying to build PyQt on OSX all week -- I will try to get an OSX build out at some point.

Has anyone tried the Windows EXE? Is it working for you? I've tested it on a few computers at my home so let me know if there are any problems.

comment iStack (iPhone app for Stackoverflow sites) - suggestions for UI
My understanding is that you should NOT copy the stackoverflow 'look and feel' which generally means things like colors/icons/layout. To me, this looks almost identical to the main sites and could easily cause confusion that is the 'official SO app'.
