The Nimble Contact API is currently the only API that can be accessed via Nimble's REST API. At this time, functionality of the Contact API is limited and the API is still considered in the "beta" category. However, Nimble plans on releasing added functionality starting in the upcoming few months.

The Contact API is the first in a family of APIs that Nimble is creating so that developers are able to build innovative third-party applications that use Nimble features and functionality to further engage customers. Jason McDowall, Director of Product at Nimble says in the announcement:

"The API represents a major milestone in achieving our mission of helping small teams nurture stronger relationships to drive more business opportunities," said Jason McDowall, Director of Product at Nimble. "Our API puts Nimble at the center of any customer engagement workflow by tying together complementary tools in the areas of sales, marketing, customer service, and accounting."

The Nimble Marketplace

The new Nimble Marketplace offers applications created by integration partners that extend Nimble functionality. At the time of this writing, there are only a few add-on products available in the marketplace: MailChimp, Wufoo, Hubspot and Rapportive. Other add-ons are coming soon though including Hootsuite, Zapier, Freshdesk, Quoteroller and Web Scribble.

Using Nimble's upcoming family of APIs, developers will be able to create third-party applications that can be offered in the Nimble Marketplace for free or charge a fee for using the app. McDowall quotes in the announcement:

"We envision creating a community of application developers," said McDowall, "and enabling those developers to build their businesses on the back of Nimble with the maximum of flexibility and opportunity."

Developers interested in using Nimble APIs can sign up for an account at the Nimble Developer Center.
