From Twitter to Baby Names – This Week in Mashups

John Musser, April 4th, 2009

It’s been another busy week of new apps in to our mashup directory, with 21 new mashup listings added. And all together there were 25 different APIs to build this week’s new mashups. In keeping with its API-of-the-moment status, the Twitter API was used in 7 of these mashups (141 Twitter apps listed). Also the Baby Names API got its first mashup listing and so did the Brooklyn Museum API, which we profiled earlier this week. For a full rundown, the list below shows which APIs were used by which mashups:
