message 1: by Tim (new)

Tim Heuer (timheuer) | 10 comments The Good Reads connect says that the API supports signing up new users to goodreads.com but I don't see any methods for that in the API.

Michael Economy (michaeleconomy) Where does it say that?


message 3: by Tim (new)

Tim Heuer (timheuer) | 10 comments http://www.goodreads.com/api/connect -- very bottom "build a client app" -- second bullet point.

Michael Economy (michaeleconomy) You're right. Hmmmm, i guess i thought that api call was more secret than that. :)


Are you writing a client then? if so, for what platform?


message 5: by Tim (new)

Tim Heuer (timheuer) | 10 comments Was tinkering writing a client for Windows 8. If create user isn't available (as it looks like it isn't because I can't find docs on it), i'll just redirect to the web site.

Michael Economy (michaeleconomy) If you want, we can give you access and email the docs.

Michael Economy (michaeleconomy) Oh whoops!

I thought (incorrectly) that we did give that api call out. I was wrong.

In the past the other clients have shown a webview with our sign in page, and asks the user to close it when done. I think this app does that: https://market.android.com/details?id...


We're going to edit that page so it doesn't list that call anymore (since the call in question would require the app to see that person's password which we don't want to allow at present).
