I was one of the people asking for an API last time we had a influx of reddit users, and I even had a prototype app working off my scraping API. While I love the idea of an API, I realize that most websites who create one follow the same trend: release a public API, get free traffic from creative devs, then cut back on the API as it serves the business needs of the site. We do hope to find a sustainable way to release an API or otherwise extend the hubski community, but we don't want to make the same mistakes others have.

I understand. Is there an ETA when the API will be available?

Not at the moment, sorry. We have a few things that are taking priority, such as a mobile version of the site.

I have to say, I love the mobile version of the site, or at least how it looks on my tablet.
