Of the many APIs we published this week, twelve were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those twelve, which include the Tumbz API. Tumbz takes the idea of customer reviews to the next level by making it more customized to the individual. Instead of having an average rating from everyone, Tumbz allows its users to see the ratings of people they respect, have similar interests to, or generally agree with. The Tumbz API simply makes this functionality available to developers. To learn more about the Tumbz API visit the Tumbz site as well as the Tumbz API blog post.
Dataplug is for businesses that ship using multiple carriers and need to manage which orders should be shipped via which carrier. The legacy solution of course is manual entry: sort the orders according to carrier and then enter them into the different carrier websites. Beyond costing time and money, it creates a customer service nightmare when a customer wants to track a package. “Which carrier did we send that on, again,” the operator might be wondering. Dataplug finesses all that, right down to the tracking, done all in one place–and customers can go to your site and track packages themselves.
