That's a shame, I was quite enjoying a lot of the little tools that popped up around Strava.
Can sort of understand where they are coming from, if I were them, I'd be working on pulling more users into premium subscriptions. An API probably isn't the best way to go about this.
You could make premium membership a requirement for (run-time) API access, or some parts of the API. Some customers would pay for that. Right now the only thing I'm getting from my premium membership is a fairly meaningless suffer score, as well as a warm inner glow for helping them pay the bills.
They should learn from Amazon - APIs are everything to Amazon. Check out http://apievangelist.com/2012/01/12/the ... rnal-apis/ .
