Daniel (dbmrq) | 19 comments I just posted this topic describing how I'm always getting the full page instead of the mobile layout when authenticating my app with OAuth.

To check if the problem is really the site or if I did something wrong I tried revoking access to the Goodreads app so I could authenticate again and check if I'd get the mobile layout or the full version. Well, it turns out I just can't authenticate again, I get a 401 error anywhere I go in the app. I can't even log out and log back in.

Hey Daniel,

I saw you posted a Swift OAuth example. Did you work around this problem or is it still an issue?

Daniel (dbmrq) | 19 comments In this thread I was refering to the official Goodreads app. After revoking access I couldn't reauthenticate until I reinstalled it. Now I realized this might not be the best place to post this, since it's a problem in the Goodreads app, not the API.

It's still an issue that the authentication page shows the full layout instead of mobile, though.

Thanks for the answer. :)
