The Best Spinner API is now available to all
current customers of The Best Spinner to use, and no longer requires you to purchase quota to query the API.
How it works is simple:
1. You pass your TBS username/password into the API and get back a session identifier.
2. You pass the session identifier into the API for each call to either identifySynonyms or replaceEveryonesFavorites, along with the text you wish to perform the query on and some optional variables.
3. The API passes back the resulting spin-formatted text.
By default, accounts are limited to 250 queries to the API per day, where a query is any call to either the identifySynonyms or replaceEveryonesFavorites functions. Calling the API to retrieve account information or to login is not counted against your daily maximum.
For full details on how to use the API, login here using your TBS username/password:http://thebestspinner.com/?action=login
The full documentation of the API will be presented to you.API Q & AQ.
