You don’t have to be a HUGE enterprise to have gorgeous branded and customized polls on your web site. Granted, you will have to have some technical expertise — but not a staff of expensive engineers.
The MicroPoll application has just released new and improved APIs that will make white-labeling your polls a breeze.
What’s an API and why is this exciting enough to write an article about it?
API stands for Application Programming Interface — and it’s like a gateway that allows you to interact with and customize inside of an already existing platform. For example Facebook and Twitter are existing platforms and HootSuite and Facebook Apps use APIs to communicate with the platform.
APIs are specially designed to expose only the chosen functionality and/or data while safeguarding other parts of the application which provides the interface.
And this is why the MicroPoll API is so exciting. It frees you up from the basic templates that we’ve provided and gives you access to the back end of the MicroPoll platform that allows you to make changes without losing functionality.
