    Unfortunately no, we do not have an API. That might sound weird this day and age, so let me explain it. Our product is focused on users with basic skills to create forms. People who can use an API are probably typing their form HTML code in vim and implementing their own back-end scripts. That's why API has always been a low priority task for us. However, we are changing our mind on this, with the advancement of mobile applications, we are receiving more and more requests for an API. So, we have plans to implement it within this year.
