With dozens of new mashups added each week that in turn use dozens of different APIs, it can be hard to choose which gets chosen as Mashup of the Day here on PW (see this weekend’s API roundup and mashup roundup for examples). One trend we’re seeing is a decrease in mapping mashups and an increase in the sheer diversity of subjects, APIs and other types of apps developed. Here’s a sampling of three of the more interesting new mashups:
- Guardian Trends: Developer Stephen Elliott produced this great interactive tool for creating graphs of how often things are mentioned on guardian.co.uk. APIs: Google Visualization, Guardian. More at our Guardian Trends profile.
- Dora: Mashup of Pandora, Twitter, and Bit.ly. Allowing users to easily tweet their Pandora music, include a bit.ly url to the song, and see what other users have tweeted about their artists and songs. APIs: Bit.ly, Twitter. More at our Dora profile.
- IceCondor: One of our first Android mashups listed, this Android app lets you follow people and events in real-time from multiple services. Uses data from Brightkite, Shizzow, Upcoming and others. APIs: Brightkite, Google Maps, Shizzow, Upcoming.org. More at our IceCondor profile.
