Their API is free. So, everyone uses them and they are overloaded. Their API will not be reliable as long as the service stays free.

Blockchain.info API is just another service where you give up ownership of coins to some shady company.

I would suggest either looking elsewhere or building in some more redundancy by using an additional 3rd party callback notification service. BlockChain.info's service is free, but we're getting what we pay for.

This is not true. You will always maintain control of your private keys as the private keys are both generated and encrypted/decrypted locally.

As it has been said multiple times above, the blockchain.info API is free, and the saying that you will get what you pay for will likely apply in this situation.

You can always pay for and run your own full node. Solves a lot of problems, but creates new ones.

I advice you to stay away from Blockchain.info as much as you can.

It was a good service back in the day when Bitcoin wasn't popular, I guess they don't scale too well.

This might change things for the better:

I've not used the Blockchain.info API but I've been checking the chain.com API out. It's pretty good, well architected, properly documented and straightfoward. They also send you emails when there are service outages with details as to what might be happening, or what happened.
