Although I'm personally a strong advocate of the protocol redirects, I can 
assure you that we have not actively blocked access to the OAuth screens in any 
context or browser with these updates. 

If you're having trouble with the auth screen in a web view, I'm going to need 
more information from you because there's no debugging tool for a UIWebView in 
third party apps. If you can trap any rendering or script errors from a browser 
view control in your development environment, please send them to me and I'll 
use them to look for any problems. Email me directly if you prefer.
