The Exact Online iOS SDK developed by Andrew Kopanev aims to facilitate the creation of Apple apps with Exact Online API data. Features include authorization/token refreshing and REST API access. Additional official APIs include support for XML and CSV formats. This project does not require CocoaPods, but uses AFNetworking and AFOAuth2Manager, both available as links on the site. Exact Online is a business software that can work with QuickBooks, an accounting solution service.
Any company that makes an API knows that just having the API is not enough. A bare endpoint is probably worse than not having an API at all. To make your API and platform useful you need documentation, tools, examples and forums. If you are a successful API company you start developing a community of people that work with your service. The community shares ideas and helps each other out.
