From Bible APIs to Music APIs – 33 APIs Used in 7 Days

John Musser, May 2nd, 2009

33 different APIs were used to build this week’s new mashups on ProgrammableWeb. For the third week in a row, the two most used APIs where the Twitter API and the Google Maps API. Some mashups used APIs that were newer or less frequently seen, including APIs from Bible Gateway, Blogama, Panoramio, and the New York Times Movie Reviews. One prominent theme was music, with mashups that used APIs from Blip.fm, Last.fm, LyricWiki, and MTV. The list below shows which APIs were used by which mashups:
