Unfortunately, I am given the same error message all the time when I am trying to grant permissions to the application.

Dear developers, how soon the service will be back

I had this error because i was using a localhost address.

Are you trying to run using localhost If so add an entry in your host file. See http://www.soulsolutions.com.au/Blog/tabid/73/EntryID/189/Default.aspx

Localhost would not work because you has to provide a domain name accessible from the Internet on the return location so we can pass back the domain authentication token and user handle to your site. A public IP address would be reachable from the Internet but we will not accept it because we display your domain name to the user on the permission granting page.
