Hi Sean

I’m sorry to hear about your situation. It seems from the blog link you posted there was a notice on the iOS consent page. We weren’t notified in any other way and do not have a bug report open about this. It seems neither us, nor any of our users noticed the notice… anyway, we are here now and ready to help.

From the sounds of things our OAuth2 script library won’t work for Google either so that isn’t an option. I’m looking for alternatives right now.

If there is any chance of recovery with your clients please let me know if there is a new deadline to work to and I will do my best to get it done.
