Wit is free, including for commercial use. So both private and public Wit apps are free and governed by our terms.

When your app is open, your intents, entities and validated expressions will be accessible to the community, but not your logs. You can visit this open Internet of Things Wit app to see what data is accessible.
After creating your app, you can find your access token in the app's Settings tab.
We don't have a strict rate limit. Use common sense and please contact us if you plan to hit our API quite heavily (sustained rate of 1 request/sec).
We believe that like open source code, the community will benefit from open apps. New developers can start by forking your app or just "get" (aka copy) some of your intents so they don't have to start from scratch and reinvent the wheel. In turn, your open app will be able to reuse the data from the community to become smarter. Only use private apps when you have privacy constraints.
You have ownership of your data, but you agree to let us use it to improve Wit. If your app is private, your data (intents, entities, expressions, logs) will be accessible only by you and the developers you decide to share your app with. If your app is open, you agree to share some data. More info here
