Writeapp.me, the personal online notebook, has announced its first public Writeapp.me API. The company decided to launch the API in attempt to get back to the personal, customizable roots for which the application was originally built. Since Writeapp launched, the application has been a public offering and users have been subject to the company's decisions on new functionality, upgrades, fixes, etc. The Writeapp.me API will put some control back in the hands of users and requires the company to remain up to date on fixes.
Writeapp.me was originally developed for personal use a few years ago. When it was released as a public offering, the uptake went through the roof. Now Writeapp.me wants to hold itself accountable to further innovation and sustainability and integrate its functionality with new interfaces. Writeapp.me continues to finalize its API launch plans, but anticipates the first release arriving in January.
Writeapp.me was developed for its creators' personal use. It just so happens the rest of the world suffered similar pains with keeping personal notes online. After massive adoption, Writeapp has increased functionality, offered paid premium plans and now plans to launch its first API. For starters, the API will be free, but adjustments are often made to freemium models that take off too fast. Catch the API during the launch early next year.
