POST / GET parameters

Description

Authenticating with the Mobypicture API is possible using POST or GET variables, depending on the rest of the parameters. Every authenticated call accepts a username and a pin parameter.

Parameters

  • username

    Mobypicture username.

  • pin

    Mobypicture PIN.

    Unofficially, a Twitter password is still accepted and will be converted, by us, via Twitter xAuth, to OAuth keys. We do not store any passwords from Twitter. Twitter’s OAuth Echo is however the preferred method of authentication with Twitter.

Example:

http://api.mobypicture.com?action=checkCredentials&username=<username>&pin=<pin>&k=<key>&format=json

Authenticating with Twitter

Don’t you have the Mobypicture credentials of a given user and want to authenticate against Twitter, have a look at our OAuth Echo implementation.
