slickdeals API

blndeals 10 April 4, 2012 at 06:41 AM
I'm sure there isn't going to be an official Slickdeals app for WP based phones anytime soon considering that Android app is yet to be released. I would think about developing a basic app for SD in WP phones if it has an API. Does Slickdeals have an API? If not, is there any plan to create one? Again if not, is it okay to hit the webpage to scrap content (not storing anywhere but for the users who logs in with their ids)? I'm asking this before hand as I don't want to break any ToS if there is no API available.

If you're interested in developing an app, we can help support that as long as some conditions are met. We do have an API but its private and currently only for official apps.

That being said, lets say you do develop an app and we like it, we could turn it into an official app if you make the source available and we can review it.

Let me know what your thoughts are.
