For at least thirty years, people have talked about the “paperless office.” With cloud-based services, it may finally be possible. Yet, for many organizations, a major hang-up is contracts, which require ink signatures. In our first public API report, sponsored by DocuSign, we looked at electronic signature platforms. Specifically, we examined the features and developer friendliness of e-signature APIs, which allow non-ink signatures to be automated and integrated into business processes. Without a doubt, e-signatures are a growing field, as evidenced by the recent acquisition of EchoSign by Adobe.

This week saw the widest range of APIs being used to develop mashups we’ve seen in awhile: 42 different APIs used in 7 days. Of those new apps added to our mashup directory, only a handful were map mashups, whereas most of them used more unique APIs: Google Chart API, indeed API, Livekick API, MTV API, NPR API, Tagalus API, TwitPic API, uClassify API, Vimeo API, and the Yelp API. Also, given that within the last 24 hours the highly anticipated Wolfram|Alpha search engine and structured reference went live, we did happen to see a number of semantic and linked-data APIs used this week: Reuters Calais API, DBpedia API, and Freebase API (and we’ve just added a profile for the Wolfram|Alpha API). The list below shows which APIs were used by which mashups:
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. The list below shows which APIs were used by which mashups:
For the second week in a row, over 30 different APIs were used to build new apps in our mashup directory. Those 20 mashups used 31 different APIs. And once again not all of those APIs are the usual suspects. Less common ones used include Formula 1 Racing data API Ergast, the new Etsy API and Twilio API, the ecommerce pay-per-action LinkShare API, the Sunlight Labs API, and short URL expander LongURL. And in what’s clearly the new number one, the Twitter API was used in 4 of this week’s mashups. The list below shows which APIs were used by which mashups:
It’s been another busy week of new apps in to our mashup directory, with 21 new mashup listings added. And all together there were 25 different APIs to build this week’s new mashups. In keeping with its API-of-the-moment status, the Twitter API was used in 7 of these mashups (141 Twitter apps listed). Also the Baby Names API got its first mashup listing and so did the Brooklyn Museum API, which we profiled earlier this week. For a full rundown, the list below shows which APIs were used by which mashups:
