When you choose to login using Stack Exchange - if you type a wrong password the message that pops up is confusing.

It says

"Error - Could not perform this request with your account. Please try logging back in"

Really this should say "Wrong password!" because I spent 15 minutes thinking it was a problem with the app when actually it was a problem with my thumbs!

This will be fixed in an upcoming build. In many cases the API doesn't return human readable responses and we have some fallbacks. This was not one of those cases.
