Hey,

I am a developer. I was thinking about coding an APP aimed at org handling, logistics, etc. To do things as allow to share points of interest (like good mining points), scanner data, etc and with that generate automatically game beacons like "someone plz go mine here" or "someother please go and help dude X who is being attacked". Also gather info about other orgs and players to help locate them, know ships they have, etc.

But I will need a good game API, which I doubt we will have, or at least not fully.

LOL

Anyway, I doubt the game will automatize as far as I pretend to reach. By example:
* I tell the app I want an outpost in X place. The outpost will have 2 hangars , 4 turrets, 8 corridor sections, 3 habitability modules, hydroponics.
* The app start generating all the beacons needed to get the job done like:
- Mine 400 xxxxx. Mine 2000 tttt.
- bring escorts if needed, transport xxxxx to Y place. transport tttt to Y.
- purchase 5 module yyyy parts and 6 rrrr parts. Bring escorts. Transport them to Y.
- get cargo hauler and escorts. Bring all related items from Y to X.
- Bring a pioner and escorts. Build.

Other things could be to help with mining prospection, warfare and space control, etc.

That would be awesome, and I think you should plan to have it interface with the Spectrum changes so the app can give you updates on the progress even when you're away from your computer.

If you develop it for Android I'd volunteer to test it.

Well if you ever need help coding let me know.

I would wait until they get Spectrum integrated into the game, because from the way they talk about spectrum, they want it to do a lot of what you are describing.
I Sencond this, I wouldn't put to much effort in to this idea just yet, good idea but think most of that will be part of game mechanic.
In short don't go to much MMO frenzy just yet it's Alpha and a lot will change and evolve toward Beta and then final release.
Just enjoy the game for what it is now, and between having fun help out test and hunt for bugs.
The more bugs get validated and fixed the faster game can evolve to next stage... etc.. etc.. etc..
