Follow Our Roadmap Progress!

by Dan Corbin on September 11, 2014

We value our developer partners and pride ourselves on providing the best support possible. We work hard to quickly resolve any issues that may arise and offer advice on how to best utilize the API. We listen closely when you ask for new features that will make your app even more amazing.

Providing the best developer experience possible means keeping you informed of what features we’re building, what’s on our roadmap, and known issues that might affect your application. To help you keep up to date we’ve created the Context.IO Development board.

Context.IO Development board

The Context.IO team actively participates on this board and uses it to communicate its development priorities.

The board consists of four different lists. In each list there are cards where you can leave comments and feedback. The cards also are color coded so you can easily visualize the work being done on the Lite API, 2.0 API, Features and Bug Fixes.

Check the Ideas list for features we may add to the roadmap. If you like a feature, add your vote, or leave a comment. You can also submit a feature request by contacting

Known Issues
These are things, usually bugs, we know about but haven’t had time to move into the schedule. Once we start the coding we’ll move the item to the In Progress column.

In Progress
The Context.IO team is actively working on cards in this list. We might be at the white boarding stage but it’s part of our current workload and we’re working towards completion as soon as possible.

When new features go live, they will be here. At least a few previous Live lists will remain to show what things went out a while back.

Comments? Ideas?

Feel free to leave a comment on the main Info card. If you would like a response, drop us a line at

We hope you find the Context.IO Development board a helpful way to stay informed of changes in the API. Please leave comments, send us your feedback, and let us know all of your feature requests. We love hearing from you and answering any questions you have about Context.IO!

Status, Alerts, and Transparency

by Dan Corbin August 6, 2014

“Sometimes being too transparent can be a bad thing.” We disagree. A core value of Context.IO is being as transparent as possible. If we do the right thing and have no secrets with our partners, we’ll both know where we stand and together we can make great products. This core value can be seen in […]
