This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the API, not general programming questions. –  Telastyn Jun 26 at 15:24

You can use the API without a key, you'll just have lower limits without it. From the application registration form:

Upon registering, you'll be provided an API key which grants your app a much larger per-day request quota than using the API anonymously.
