Custom app protocol handler (oauth2)

Are there any future developments with regard to registering a custom protocol handler for your Playbook Tablet app like there is with Android?

 

After looking at the Web Works docs it would seem  all device specific calls are available already through a custom protocol called webworks://

 

I think there should be a way to define these in the descriptor to use with things like OAuth2. Currently the userr journey on an OAuth2 implementation is rather difficult on the Playbook.  A custom protocol would mean one can specify this as the redirect_uri parameter and the browser will automatically redirect back to your app.

 

Any thoughts?

I have many thoughts, but not on this topic. You might have better results if you ask on the playbook developers' webworks forum. Click on the l"Develop Support Forums" above and follow the links from there.
