OAuth Controllers

This isn’t news to pretty much any of you by now we trust, but a couple weeks back Google released an open source library for OAuth authentication:

OAuth Sign-in Controllers for iOS and Mac OS X Applications

Indeed, some standardization on that would be nice. Between Twitter and Facebook, we believe there’s five different OAuth implementations running in our last four apps, each with their own distinct set of issues. Hopefully this code will help that settle down!

Note that apparently it includes Google’s own newly released NSURLConnection wrapper gtm-http-fetcher, although we trust someone will rework it for ASIHTTPRequest before too long…
