Harshini Nawarathna (harshani) | 7 comments Hi,

I'm developing a windows 8 desktop app for goodreads in C#. I managed to OAuth my app and get the oauth token.

I'm new to APIs.

1. How can I get the id of the who authorized oauth. The API document says "URL: http://www.goodreads.com/api/auth_user
HTTP method: GET "
Do I need to add the oauth_token at the end of the url?

2. Is there any API method to get user status of a particular user by giving user id.

Thanks in advance

Ettore Pasquini 1. The OAuth set up can be a little tricky, but there's some good documentation and sample code online. I suggest you use a helper library for this. For instance, check out this page for C# sample code.

2. for user statuses we have an api you can use. Also, check out this discussion:
