The Jawbone UP launched just last year to allow its users to be able to track what they do on a daily basis, although if you’re the type of person who sits on the couch all day long, it might be a waste to own one. But that’s besides the point as today, Jawbone is announcing they have released an API for its UP that will allow developers to create applications that help owners of the device make the most out of their purchase.
The UP Developer Platform was first announced back in April as a closed invitation-only API, which Jawbone invited a number of popular services such as MyFitnessPal, IFTT and RunKeeper to help make the UP ecosystem something different for all users. Now that Jawbone is opening its API to developers, the company is hoping to broaden the UP’s ecosystem even more so.
Jawbone is offering full documentation of its API as well as the ability to set up and manage connected applications and access to support from both developers and Jawbone engineers as part of its open UP Developer Platform. So if you’re considering building an application for the Jawbone UP, it looks like the company will hold your hand through the entire process to make things as easy as possible.
