API roadmap for 2008 and beyond
Last year the major focus of the Skype Developer Program was to bring you a route to market for your applications. We delivered this in the form of the Extras Manager which we launched in December with amazing success. (If you look at the latest stats, over 24 million extras have been downloaded by customers since the launch).
Recently we enabled the final piece of the route to market puzzle by turning on our payment collection capabilities which means users can purchase your application directly with Skype credits and the money you earn will be paid into your PayPal account.
It’s now time for us to look beyond Extras and collect requirements for the platform for 2008 and beyond, and we are looking for your input.
For some of you the requirements may simply be 1 or 2 new APIs that would either save you loads of code, or just enable you to build that killer feature. For others the requirements maybe an entirely new set of features.
Nether the less if you want to input in to the future of the Skype platform please give us your ideas/requirements by leaving your comments here https://developer.skype.com/wiki/2008ApiRequirements by the 13th July so requests can be collated.
Of course leaving a comment does not absolutely guarantee that your feature will be developed but if you are on the list then at least it gets considered.
