Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those ten, which included the Thinkery API.

Convo’s API makes it possible for this functionality to be integrated with other applications.

#blue is a web service to save text messages in an intelligent, searchable manner. It’s a service of O2 UK, and sadly only currently available to O2 UK subscribers. However, it’s a rather interesting web service, and it’d be great to see more service providers use a similar service. The fully functional #blue API provides a compliment to its web based service.
