API allows pull back of details of deposited items

It would be great if it is possible to use the Figshare API to pull back for all deposited items:

- Author(s) Elements Proprietary ID(s)

- Elements Publication ID

- number of views

- number of downloads

This solution is needed for anyone wanting to combine information only available in Figshare with results from another system at a granular level. 

(For us it is wanting to combine the information available in Elements with that available in Figshare so that we can understand and report on views and downloads in relation to other stats. Whilst Google Analytics (GA) addresses part of the issue most views and downloads are directly through figshare.com rather than via our figshare open access institutional repository site so are not captured anywhere but through figshare.)
