Blockspring have just released an integration with Import.io to let you automatically pull data from the web into a spreadsheet. They’ve created an awesome solution that lets you use a range of great APIs using only a spreadsheet. Their Excel and Google Sheets plugin enables you to bring data into your spreadsheet, run text-analysis and much more.
So today we want to show you how you can use live web data from a spreadsheet to do a bunch of cool things in just a few minutes. Currently Blockspring is using Import.io's Magic API, which automatically generates a table of data from a URL. You just have to provide the Blockspring integration a URL and it pulls the data from that site into a nice, orderly table - all without leaving your spreadsheet.
