From Politics to Music – 36 Different APIs Used in 7 Days

John Musser, April 25th, 2009

What do you get when you combine 36 different APIs into 28 different applications? You get this week’s additions to our mashup directory. Some of the less frequently seen APIs include Freebase, Capitol Words, MTV, as well as DigitalBucket. Which API was used most? It was the Twitter API, used in 10 mashups this week. And in yet another example of one API being built on top of another API is the TwitPic API, a Twitter-based service, used in this week’s twipick entry.
