Daniel I'm having trouble with the author.show call. It stopped working for me recently (without any code changes). It's now returning the mobile html author page, instead of an XML file.

http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

It works from my desktop through wget or a webbrowser, but not from my mobile android device. Is it possible the goodreads API is incorrectly reading the user agent?


message 2: by Daniel (new)

Daniel If I set the HttpURLConnection User-agent to something random like "GoodreadsDroid" it works correctly.

Ettore Pasquini something odd is happening... we're working on it.


message 4: by Ettore (new)

Ettore Pasquini Daniel, a fix should be deployed now. I'm not able to reproduce the error anymore.


message 5: by Daniel (new)

Daniel Thanks! Seems to be working now.
