I've been developing a Java/MIDP Twitter client for the past two months, and i still need a couple more months to publish a beta version. A few days ago i found out that the update source (app name) is no longer customizable unless the client uses OAuth for authentication, which means that any update sent through my client is shown as "from API" instead of my app's name.
I understand that OAuth is important for many security reasons, but it still has important issues with mobile applications, forcing the user to open a page through a mobile device, writing down the PIN, switching back to the app and logging in again is just hell. Not to mention the smartphones that don't support programs running in the background. The current API's methods shouldn't be restricted to OAuth unless these issues are solved first. We, developers and mobile users, would be thankful. Is anyone using any other solution for OAuth and mobile devices, if there is any?
