    Color scheme is all wrong...It needs to be the OpenStudy colors. It is far from complete but as far as a beta goes there needs to be more functionality. This is defiantly not an app but a website.

    No offence, but it's actually not an app. It's just a website that imports pieces of the OS website. And many of the pages are too heavy to load quickly (could be my phone (HTC One)) Also I can only see 3 math quesitons that were posted 5 hours ago. Hope you'll upgrade it with more functionality :)

    Sure, no probelm :) Thanks for the feedback guise. I already have a much-improved version in stock that will be released soon. BTW, were any of you using iOS? I'm wondering... cause it gets converted to an app in iOS, + it looks a lot better... Actually I have no clue how it looks in an Android phone...

    Guys, I'll be very honest. I was making a very great version of this app. The design looks great. It was a native app. Until I throw the last bits together... and guess what. I coudn't get any info from OpenStudy, due to its XSS policies. I'd need an API. So... I just made something using the web urls, threw it together, since it was getting late and people were impatient. Sorry.

    There is an API, though it's not extra-super-straightforward to use. It's definitely crafted and designed for internal use rather than use by external applications.

    I'm actually wondering if they're any admin (programmers for the site) anymore. Everything that is "new" in the site, a regular mod/admin like Preetha can do, like updating the blog, or adding a new subject (I found were the UI for that was).

    Check out things like: - http://openstudy.com/api/v1/updates/51d5c4dde4b059f463fe882d - http://openstudy.com/api/v1/users/shadowfiend - http://openstudy.com/api/v1/users/shadowfiend/updates/4f9035b8e4b000310fae4570 The most problematic aspect of these is posting to them, which is not straightforward with the stuff provided by the API.

    The API exposes functions for posting that are oriented towards the inner workings of Lift's AJAX system (Lift being the web framework we use -> http://liftweb.net/ ). You can munge them a bit and look at how Lift dispatches AJAX requests to get some idea of how to reconstruct the right requests. The key issue is, OpenStudy is a very stateful system. That means you need to maintain an HTTP session, in particular the JSESSIONID cookie, to use it properly. So you'll have to hack part of a browser's functionality into your native client to make it work.

    You'll see some fields in the JSON that end in “Fn” -> these are meant to be JavaScript code invoked from the client that invokes a server-side function to do things like fan people and such.

    Well, this isn't strictly speaking a pure JSON API. While we emit JSON, it's not independent of our framework. Part of it can be used without any of the infrastructure of Lift, part of it can't.
