Hello, on my Android app, but also in the browser the URL

https://api.toodledo.com/2/account/lookup.php?appid=planmyday;sig=.....;email=xxxx.yyyy@gmail.com;pa ss=xxx-123.XXX+!_;f=xml

seems to fail. The result is:

Invalid email or password

What can be done?

Cheers, Klaus
Jake

You need to URL encode all strings that you pass through the API. This will encode special characters in a way that allows them to pass through correctly.
