Would be great if XDA had its own API, or OAuth support.

Tip us?

Thumbs up Would be great if XDA had its own API, or OAuth support.

I believe XDA doesn't have its own API, e.g. so people could write 3rd party mobile apps for XDA? Or OAuth2 support?

I've been using reddit recently and noting the nice ecosystem of 3rd party apps they have.

The tapatalk app works nicely. But you're right, there aren't really any other options.

Have you tried turning it off and on again??

Good point. I guess that means there is an API, of sorts.

But I think its some sort of proprietary API developed by tapatalk and implemented via plug-ins to the common forum systems.

Hmm, I was just thinking about installing a bugtracker software on my server.
But I'd like to make sure, that the users have a valid XDA user account.

It'd be nice, if that could be checked via an oAuth API
Or XDA would have to provide a bugtracker where every XDA user can request a sub-project. ^^
