AdSense Dashboard 2.7

So as a part of the V1 launch of the API, there are a few things that are happening.

First and foremost, we don’t need to hide the fact that the API exists anymore; this means we can move to OAuth2 for our authentication. This miiiiiiight be a little flaky; I’ll be watching for problems with authentication, and if you have problems, tell me. Also, we’ll be moving to an explicitly read-only auth scope, and a human-readable scope at that, so that users can feel confident that we can’t do anything untoward with their data.

Next, this is the first pass on a multi-pass redesign of the look and feel. Specifically, we’re going to be surfacing a lot more data - so we need ways of making all that data work. As such, we’re moving to ViewPager, the same pager UI you see in Market and Google+.


  • Auth might be a little flaky. Working on it.
  • Graph rendering is really slow, especially now that there are six of them on screen.
  • There are a lot of UI tweaks needed, here; the app isn’t the prettiest thing in the world.

I’ll continue to work on this over the next few weeks, but again, I’d like to thank everyone for helping us test the AdSense Management API - we wouldn’t have been able to launch it with the level of confidence we have today without each of you.
