We strive to provide athletes with the most motivating and fun environment for training and sharing activities. To keep this focus, we’ve had to make a hard choice this year between investing in our features and making the API broadly available. (Please see our Strava API Update blog post on this subject.)
This means that as we roll out our latest version of the API, version 3, we will have to limit the amount of developers who have access to it, as well as discontinue V1 and V2 APIs on June 30, 2013. Libraries, sites, and applications that use V1 and V2 endpoints will cease to work as the underlying API endpoints will no longer be available. By delaying the retirement of V1 and V2 of the API until June 30, we hope to give you sufficient time for you to make alternative arrangements should you be impacted.
Limited Access to V3 We will be accepting a small handful of developers into the V3 Early Access Program who can help us blaze new trails for the Strava community. If you meet the criteria below, complete this survey (Update: Survey responses are now closed.) and tell us what you’d like to do with the API.
What we’re looking for:
- Novel uses of Strava data that benefit athletes
- New ways to connect and grow the Strava community
What we can’t allow:
- Applications that encourage competition
- Replicating Strava functionality
We understand this change impacts many of you. If you have further questions, or would like to get in touch with us, please refer to the Strava API Update blog post.
