Do you wish Etsy had an iPad application? Do you dream about a gift registry, or long for a set of tools to help you better manage your shop? Well, here’s your chance to speak directly to a group of people who can make it happen: independent software developers.
If this sounds like a bunch of tech mumbo-jumbo to you, then think about it like this: if you have an iPhone and you’ve installed something from the App Store or you’ve played Farmville on Facebook, you’re using something that an independent developer built via an API provided by Apple and Facebook, respectively. (Vanessa also gave great explanation early last year.)
