Connected Data Opens Up Transporter to App Developers

Connected Data, makers of the Transporter, have launched a developer program making the Transporter platform available from within a Mac, iOS, or Android app. Transporter devices create private cloud storage, and now that storage can be integrate with apps, particularly those syncing to other services such as iCloud and Dropbox.

According to the company's developer page, "We’ve done all the heavy lifting by creating a core services layer that allows your app to make straightforward, native calls. If you’ve already integrated your app with other cloud storage services, extending that integration to Transporter will be simple."

As part of the announcement, there are already a few developers on board, including Smile Software with PDF Pen, and Readdle's Scanner Pro. Both of these apps are well-known utilities for document management which will now have further value by integrating with Transporter.

One other notable piece of the announcement came in the resources available to developers, which lists Marketing Support. This is called out as an "opportunity to gain exposure through promotional programs." which is not very specific, but certainly sounds appealing if someone were on the fence about including this sort of functionality. To join the program, there is a form for requesting an API key, but there is no charge for doing so.
