Two ways Kandy just got easier!

Hi Kandy Developers!

If you’ve visited Kandy.io in the past few weeks you’ve probably noticed some big changes. We’ve rolled out a brand new developer portal! What does that mean for you? Well for one, it makes it easier for you to use Kandy!

With Kandy’s new developer portal, you can review documentation by coding language, filter guides by platform, and - wait for it - access some simple widgets and plugins (for integration with Wordpress, Drupal, and more) for crazy quick and easy implementation in your apps.

What else has changed?

We’re proud to announce that we’ve brought…

Try the Co-Browsing API

Spice up your app with the new Co-Browsing API.

Co-Browsing enables collaborative web-browsing between two parties: a User and an Agent. When the User shares his screen, Kandy retrieves & replicates DOM on the Agent’s screen. Remote control is enabled by default so when the Agent clicks on his view the click event is triggered on the User’s side.

Why should you use it?

Co-Browsing matches up perfectly with Kandy’s concierge call features. If a User needs help on a website, he can call an Agent who can guide him through steps to complete a task or even do the…

Making your submission video

A good video tells the story behind your submission, providing a clear and concise explanation of what your app is and does. Here are some tips and a list of screencasting tools:

  • Establish your elevator pitch. In the first few seconds of your video, explain why your app is awesome. You can get into the details of how it works later on in the video, but treat the opening seconds of your video…
