From the API Guidelines:
You cannot replicate the core user experience of Unsplash.
The best way to make sure your application doesn’t violate this guideline is to integrate Unsplash inside an existing app that offers more value than simply the Unsplash integration.
- ✅ the Ghost integration brings Unsplash inside Ghost’s editor to improve the workflow of finding beautiful images. Without the integration, the app still has a lot of value to its users.
- 🚫 a wallpaper app returns Unsplash images for downloading. Without the integration, the app has no content.
If you think your usage might conflict, shoot us an email before you integrate and we can let you know ahead of time.
We’re all for remixing and open-source, but the API costs us a non-trivial amount of money to host, operate, and provide support for. We’d prefer not to be paying to actively support direct clones.
