It's supposed to identify the application, so set it to the name of your
program, version number, etc.
You can find some examples used by browsers here:
As you can see, it's not supposed to identify the users themselves.

I want to use the api entry point for a windows 8 rt

indicate that I should send a User Agent, but I'm not sure what I
should send in this case. If I have many users of my app, then it may
look like I am abusing the api. But it's the users of my app that are
initiating the requests, not a bot.
So what should I use as the User Agent in this case? I could use the
action=raw parameter of the normal url, but I would prefer using the
api as it has more options.
