How to make a request from Angular to VK API?

Good afternoon!

Interested in the following question. How to make a request to the VK API using the $http service. Here's how I do it:

$http.jsonp(VkontakteUtils.buildVKMethodUrl('groups.getById'), {
    method: 'GET'

In response I get:
Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token :                   groups.getById?group_id=python_programing:formatted:1

In the Network tab (Google Chrome) I see that the data is received correctly, but it seems that there is a problem with parsing. Help me please.

Thanks in advance.

The solution was found. If anyone needs:

$http.jsonp(VkontakteUtils.buildVKMethodUrl('groups.getById'), {
    method: 'GET',
    params: {
        callback: 'JSON_CALLBACK'

Good afternoon.
Can you tell me how you signed up? I want to make a similar request, from a separate site that will not be embedded in the iFrame VK. Is it suitable for such purposes:
apiId: id
Or should another method be used?
Sorry if the question is a bit off topic.
