The Genesis eNews Extended widget is used in a number of themes and is required to get the results shown in the demos.
Unfortunately, it has a poor user experience since everything is manual. Are there any plans to update this widget with something simple like a dropdown to choose an email provider and a box to add an API key?
As an example, OptinMonster allows simple integration with 10+ email services and allows custom integration via HTML for any it doesn't support. It's also GPL, so it may be a decent starting point since it performs the same function and has individual folders for each integration API making it easier to build on.
I understand this is a free plugin, but what would it take to at least get the major players added (MailChimp, ConstantContanct, Infusionsoft, etc.)? I'd be willing to contribute at least $100 myself, maybe more. I'm sure others would as well since so many rely on it. I'm sure StudioPress would as well since it's required to get a website that's true to the demo as advertised.
P.S. Keep up the great work.
