API and 3rd party app integration

With the release of Shootitlive 2.0 we also released the ability to integrate external apps with Shootitlive by using our API.

Icemanmedia’s Openstore is a editorial image and media system, were editorial staff can browse and download photos archived by their photographers and photos from external picture agencies. Openstore have customers such as Aftonbladet, Expressen, SVT and the Swedish Police.

Openstore users can now, with a click of a button, send photos from Openstore to their feeds at Shootitlive and have the photos published on the sites within seconds. This will save newspapers a great deal of time, especially while providing live coverage of remote events with material from picture agencies.

Openstore were able to integrate with Shootitlive in just one working day. Contact us at hello@shootitlive.com if you want to integrate your app with Shootitlive.
