Well, that was fast. Before we all dive head first into 2014, let’s hit the Pause button for a sec and take a look back at our great 2013 by highlighting four pretty big changes in the world of Wufoo.
Wufoo Integrates With Braintree
Starting the year off right on the heels of our Stripe payment integration, we announced our latest partner in payments—Braintree. One of our first payment integrations that offered support for a wide variety of international currencies, we were really excited that the ability to accept international currencies is now a reality.
Don’t forget—that was just one of many new integrations that we announced in 2013 so be sure to check ‘em all out in the blog and here if you haven’t already.
Five Star Rating Field
We finally were able to launch a field type that’s been requested a crap-ton (yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s a unit of measurement in the Imperial System) by you form fans over the years—the highly vaunted Five Star Rating Field Type. We were thrilled to see this field type in action, whether to simplify the process of filling out feedback forms or to make product reviews as easy as selecting a couple of stars.
Our team worked hard on the front end implementation side of the Five Star Rating Field Type to make sure it was silky smooth and as super responsive to user interaction and we nailed it. We’ve got even more enhancements to this field type coming soon, so keep an eye out.
Enabled SSL/HTTPS By Default For All Accounts
Another major change that we implemented this year was to enable SSL/HTTPS for all forms and all accounts by default. In a year where awareness about security and information safety has been heightened, we realized that security is an important issue for all of our customers. All forms on all accounts are now HTTPS/SSL enabled by default. It’s something we feel strongly about and wanted to make sure all of our customers’ and users’ information is safe and secure.
Wufoo Integrates With Dropbox
Finally…the biggie. After posting a blog post about our caffeine-fueled/addled Hackathon in which we came up with some pretty cool but hacky features, you guys came out in force and let us know that you wanted these features. Now.
So we took the dino by the horns and created an integration with Dropbox. After wrestling with the integration for a bit and ensuring that it hit our very high standards, we were very happy to announce our Dropbox integration in December.
The response has been wild, with Dropbox quickly becoming one of the most popular Wufoo integrations. We’re still looking to tweak and optimize the Dropbox integration, so the work continues.
2013 was a crazy, wild, and immensely rewarding year for us and we’re extremely grateful to have all of you as customers. All of us here at Wufoo wake up each morning looking to make Wufoo a little bit better, a bit more fun, a bit more delightful, and whole lot more useful for you, our customers. 2014 is shaping up to be even better. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on.
Thanks for a great 2013 from all of us here at Wufoo and here’s to 2014!
