I'm a 19 year old university student from the UK who is learning my way around the programming world. Interested in physics, electronics and IT as well. My aim in life to get somewhere in programming or become an astrophysicist, and live into 2100 :D

I've made a few tweaks for jailbroken iOS.

comment API not returning anything near the actual website
Oh I forgot to add I had also checked the API against the questions page and it didn't match up either. yesterday I was just looking at the main SO page and it matched the API, but today it doesn't. According to the API documentation sort=active is the default on the /0.8/questions.

comment iStack (iPhone app for Stackoverflow sites) - suggestions for UI
I've just removed the favourites star and count, I hadn't been sure to add it as it's not useful and not on the main site. I'd like to keep the number of views and votes as they give an idea of how good/popular the question is.

I'm not a UI designer :) so please suggest a better layout! This is more about learning Objective-C for me than it is about creating a SO app, but both would be great.

comment Stack Bridge Application
I'm currently making an iPhone application for Stack, I've gotten as far as displaying the questions in a tableview, and I'm just perfecting that atm. Displays basically everything you see on the front page of SO, so tags and everything.

This kind of needs to be sorted because ever since this changed my app now takes 3 times longer to load the data

Well as I have said the comments and body are opt-in so it follows that answers should be as well.

ok, but that situation is very rare, and in the rare instances that happens text like "Unknown User" can be displayed. If I'm not to rely on the display name then when there is the list of questions what should I use for the question's asker (owner)
