Thanks for hooking your apps up to Kumulos! The new system launched on the 28th November 2011 and there are now over 1,000 of you developing your apps using the improved platform. Kumulos is growing rapidly and we are serving in excess of 1 billion API requests every month. We’d like to thank you again for your loyal and continued support. We’d also like to take this opportunity to inform you of some very exciting and important changes that will be happening on February 3rd 2012.
As of February 3rd 2012, Kumulos will quadruple your allowance for monthly API requests as part of your $10 package. This means for $10 per month, you will receive 1 million API requests for the price of 250,000. How cool is that? If you have an app running on over 25 unique devices and have subscribed to pay for the service, we are now giving you 4 times as many API requests for the same price. That’s right, you’ve read it correctly, that means you are getting 1 million API requests instead of 250,000 for absolutely no additional cost.
If your app is running on over 25 unique devices and you haven’t switched your app into production mode, you must do this by February 3rd 2012. If your app is running on over 25 unique devices and you don’t switch your app into production mode by February 3rd, they will be cut off. If this happens, you will only be able to reactivate your apps by returning to the Kumulos dashboard and switching your apps into production mode. Please refer to our previous blog posts for comprehensive instructions on switching your app into production mode.
Many of you have been asking about our policy on exceeding the specified limit on monthly API requests. Under the new and vastly improved pricing model you will receive 1 million API requests every month as part of your $10 package. Should you exceed the 1 million API request threshold, you will automatically be billed an additional $10 for every block of 1 million API requests used.
These changes will take affect on February 3rd 2012. If you have any queries regarding the changes, please email me directly [email protected]
