Your subscription controls how much data you can consume and how your app interacts with our APIs. You can check your current subscription by logging in to Services.

When you sign up, your account will be assigned 500MB of storage, which is plenty of data to start with. You can start interacting with data and user authentication APIs straight away. Free-tier API requests are rate-limited (10 per minute), which can be removed by upgrading to a paid tier.
