The team Busy is proud to announce the public release of Busy v2! We invited many of you to test out the private beta, thank you for all your contributions. SteemFest2 is the perfect timing for a public release so that everyone can easy get access, test and so we can get more feedbacks.
Busy v2 uses Steemconnect v2 for login, and posting API.
SteemConnect is a layer built on top of the Steem blockchain that allows you to connect to authorised apps in a secure and convenient way.
SteemConnect will be the infrastructure that lets any developer or entrepreneur to build on Steem without having to worry about security or the signup process, making it that much easier.
SteemConnect is a community project. That’s why it’s open source under MIT license, for anyone to use (and contribute to) as they see fit!
With SteemConnect2 you need to grant @busy.app permission to post on your behalf (delegate posting authority), so the app can post for you. This operation require at least your active key when you authorize the app, then you can login with your memo key or posting key. You can revoke @busy.app anytime using this link http://email@example.com
The active key is only used to sign the transaction in your browser then discarded, nothing goes or stay to the server.
Busy.org is an open-source social network and communications platform that includes a variety of rich features and functionalities.
An open platform for an apps ecosystem: Busy’s goal is to build an all-in-one platform and allow many apps and features to flourish on top of the Busy social media platform. We are offering an open-source and secure social network layer to bootstrap any Apps (like Facebook Apps does, or WeChat services), games, community tools, marketplaces for good or services, using Steem.js API, SteemConnect and the Busy.org 'framework.'
An open-source project and vision, and an alternative interface to Steemit.com: we believe in wisdom of the crowd, open decision-making, taking a collaborative and transparent approach, that's why all our work is open source. Everyone is free to contribute, by all appropriate means to accomplish our mission. Not only coders but also designers, writers, translators, testers, marketers, advisors, etc. We’re partnering with @utopian.io to incentivize and reward open source contributions on Busy.org.

Busy v2 public release
A few month ago, we decided to stop all further development on the first version of Busy, running on busy.org, to focus on our new version.
Many people were invited to test the first version, which allowed us to receive their feedback and enabled us to redirect our strategy. We want to thank everyone who helped us make the next version, the best possible.
This new version was running in private beta with some testers for more than a month now, and it’s time for us to open it to the community and to more testers!
We are now PUBLIC.

- You can still access the old Busy at: https://v1.busy.org
