We don't even have cell or wifi reception on most peaks in the US. Probably have to fix that first!

It would be so much easier to make an SP App if there is a good SP API. Oh my gosh I would loove to see a good SP API!

I have created a client side API for the bulk uploader...it knows how to search, to post photos, to delete photos. But the code is ugly because it is "from the outside"...basically it's parsing html and putting an API facade on top. If I could throw that ugly parsing code away, the bulk uploader would be a lot simpler (and easier to reproduce on other platforms that I haven't had time to do, like the Mac).

Matt, I'd love to work with you on an API design and even coding for that if you'd like.

First of all what this app would be supposed to do ?
A first veto: not submitting pages.
Ideas :
-forum
-summit logs
-adding a photo or GPX route to a page in "live"
-adding a correction/comment to a page

The fun things with apps is the interactivity. There could be an SP section "which SPer is on which place", see instant pictures or logs, just like Endomondo allows us to see who's currently cycling or running and where.

The app must be like a reference or guide book, though it can't be used many times because being without connection. The forum or even a chat would improve it. Will the app be SP next target :?:

@ Diego: While there seems to be interest, there are some other changes that will probably take place first. First we are making sure SP is stable, that comes first before adding more bells and whistles. Then there might be some changes to the Photo of the Day/Week process. There are a few other very important additions as well, but I'm sure this app will be made eventually (one way or another). Hang tight, there's a list of things that still need to be done.

Just an update here. I am working on the API, with guidance/approval from Matt. What we'll do is have a V1 that is read-only, and a V2 that would probably allow posting pictures and making comments. That should cover most things you'd want to do on an iPad or a phone. I've had to do some PHP learning, but things are now coming into place.

I'm joining the long queue of interested API users. Has there been any progress since the last post? Anything to do to help? Thanks for your work on this!

How is the work going mvs :?: That v2 would be good. Perhaps some other SPers could help on the API and APP
