    Hi guys,
    just a quick one as the title says,
    is it possible to find the call back url of any app?

    Thanks,
    a push in the right direction of where i might find this would be greatly appreciated.

    In short there's no way.

    However, if the app has a banner...or some form of images...you might be able to work it out.
    usually the images would be stored in an image folder on the owners directory, so you'd be able to get the url of the image.
    then it's guesswork. however many developers would have a standard/obvious naming structure like:
    theirsite.com/appname/images/banner.jpg
    you can work out the app callback would probaly be theirsite.com/appname/ for the above example.

    Again, your milage will vary.

    Hope this helps!
    Regards,
    Joe

    Yeah, sure there is. Just install WireShark:

    http://www.wireshark.org

    It's a packet sniffer that will capture all incoming and outgoing traffic. Looking through the results can be like looking for a needle in a haystack, but you should be able to find what you're looking for.

    You won't be able to packet sniff FBML based apps :(
    @Jack that's a pity :( I don't think there's another way.
