    So, I'm making the login for the OS app, and I'm trying to put the database in. It said I can link to a website to get it from. I keep trying different OpenStudy links like http://www.openstudy.com/ and http://www.openstudy.com/study and http://www.openstudy.com/study#/updates and none of them are working. Does anyone have any idea what I should be using?

    Note: Users were told it would be ok to take a shot at this by Preetha yesterday.

    Have you tried openstudy.com? That is what my computer is telling me in my website box.

    I have tried that. That worked even less than what I've been trying recently.

    Don't have too long to remark here, but you're probably going about it wrong if you're dealing with a database. Database servers are very specific entities, and our database is not publicly exposed. In order to build an app for the site as is, you'll probably have to run a hidden browser instance that uses OpenStudy as if the user were interacting with it directly. Then you'll need to hook up whatever UI you set up to do the equivalent actions on the hidden browser.

    So, put a webbrowser in the form but make it invisible?

    Actually, I meant data source. I chose Service under the menu.

    Still unlikely to work. And something like that. You'll have to run the browser programmatically, while you actually present a regular Android UI to the user.
