Announcing the release of the Flipnote Hatena data acquisition API

Today the Flipnote Hatena team released an API (Application Programming Interface) that allows for various types of data to be acquired and saved from Flipnote Hatena.

This API allows you to collect information about your own Flipnotes, or Flipnotes posted by others. Data such as all of the comments posted to a specific Flipnote can be saved via this API. You can also save information about channels on Flipnote Hatena, and all Flipnotes associated with specific channels.

Important notes about this API:

  • This API will no longer function after May 31, 2013 when the Flipnote Hatena service ends.
  • This API is released as-is, and we are unable to respond to individual technical questions or support inquiries about its usage.

Please see the API documentation at the URLs below for further details:

We hope that this API will be useful for programmers and end users of Flipnote Hatena who wish to save detailed information about their Flipnotes before the service ends.

Thank you for using Hatena's online services.

April 12, 2013: Update

We have decided to stop offering the current version of the Flipnote Hatena data acquisition API, and are now considering to release a more user-friendly version for the Flipnote Hatena community.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.
