Producteev, a leading provider of cross platform task management, announced the launch of an API (application programming interface) today. The newly available API gives third-party web and mobile developers access to all of Producteev’s extensive task management features, enabling them to innovate and create their own applications that sit on the front-end, with Producteev powering the back-end. Developers now have the ease and flexibility to plug-in a task manager to whatever application they use everyday, such as a CMS engine, an invoicing app, workflow app, etc. Producteev used its own API to extend existing functionality for its iPhone application and Google Gadget, which lets users quickly see and manage important tasks from Gmail. With its announcement, Producteev becomes the first platform that provides users with the most robust, full-featured task management system available on the market.

“We’re really excited to make our API available to the developer community, so they can build their dream task management app for whatever it is they are using everyday. Moreover, our API is already battle-tested, as every tool that we developed and plugged into Producteev uses it,” stated Ilan Abehassera, Producteev’s co-founder and CEO. “We believe developers will welcome and appreciate Producteev’s extensive features and quality platform. We eagerly look forward to seeing what they will create.”

Unveiled last month, Producteev plugs into the broadest array of popular communication tools, extending users’ ability to efficiently capture tasks, email-based action items or schedule deadlines, with whatever communication channel they prefer. The product, free to individuals, connects to a myriad of popular communication tools, so scheduling tasks is a seamless experience that doesn’t require any change in users’ workflow. With Producteev, people can use a task manager without having to go to a web app if they don’t want to, or they can send tasks from their email or IM and get notifications back.

Producteev Announces Developer Throwdown Contest Additionally, the company kicked off the Producteev Developer Throwdown to encourage developers to get started creating innovative web or mobile apps. The contest will award cash prizes to the best apps that win the most votes from a panel of judges. Cash prizes include $2,500 that will be awarded to one developer for the winning app and $1,000 will be awarded to the runner-up.
