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 Why aren't my application icons being used in the “Top Apps” list?
The register application page gets you your API key which allows your app to make many more requests to the API, it also allows you to use API methods that require authentification and the description/app-title/app-icon you enter there is used for the window that users see when they permit your app to access their data. If you make a script which doesn't use te API then you don't need to Fill out the "register application" page. If your app doesn't use the API then usually stack apps is not the place to list it

comment Why does badges/ids/recipients return badges not users?
Oh right I didn't remember that one. Why not make badge.user, into badge.users? That way only one copy of each badge is returned?

comment Increase the pagesize limit from 100
@KevinMontrose, thank you! I can finally move some old code from 1.0 without major changes, though returning all sites if no pagesize is specified would be nice.

comment API is accepting requests from other OAuth domains
I think the only URL outside the registered domain that is accepted is https://stackexchange.com/oauth/login_success, because it's on StackExchange it's trusted already.

What site are you talking about? The newest is Biology? but I agree there are some sites coming along that need such a flag.

comment API Implicit Authentication with Python
With a browser control inside your application you would be able to retrieve the access token, with Firefox you can't. What your doing is unsupported so it not passing the access_token is probably because of that. If you want to get the access_token you have to let the user interact with the dialog directly.

Use something like qtWebkit to show the login dialog: rkblog.rk.edu.pl/w/p/webkit-pyqt-rendering-web-pages

comment API Implicit Authentication with Python
With python isn't there a way of showing a web page inside one of your application's window? You wouldn't show the user the dialog in the users default web browser. You can then monitor that browser control for when it loads a page then get the URL that was loaded and extract the hash. My point was meant to be that the dialog is not meant to be interacted with by the application, only the user, so it maybe for that reason that the hash is being lost.
