Allergen information

It'd be nice if the API returned environmental allergen information. I see that the pollen index is available through the site's UI. However, I don't see it listed as information that is available through the API.

Our pollen data contract does not allow us to syndicate the data, so we can't put pollen in the API at this time. We do have particulate matter information from the EPA which is useful air quality data. We'll add that to our development list of features to add.

Is there any kind of priority list you guys can post? I'm going through a bunch of messages on the forums and there are a lot of suggestions posted over a year ago that still haven't been implemented.

And I've noticed that NOTHING has changed in the API for quite some time now, so I'm wondering if ANY new development is going on at all.

I've made lists of requests of things that get posted in the forums. I believe we're finally going to have the resources to make updates.

As for a priority list, we might take advantage of our support system, UserVoice, which allows for voting on things. We could post API improvements there and allow them to be voted on. That's just an idea of something we could do, not saying its set in stone.

Thanks. I'd just like to see some form of improvement... your competitors are adding things like Amber Alerts and improved graphics that don't look like they were designed in the 1950's.

It's not going to happen.  WU hasn't updated their API in several years, there is no actual development going on.  They just keep lying to us.
