Service Objects, real-time contact validation service provider, announced its new product today: DOTS Address Detective. Address Detective examines incomplete address information and uses existing data to rectify and salvage the data. Given the data-crawling nature of the new product, Address Detective seems an excellent candidate to integrate via an API. To explore this concept, PW caught up with Service Objects CEO, Geoff Grow, to explore.
This week, we had 52 new APIs added to our API directory including a music information site, a PassBook passes building & management service, and a financial trading platform. We also discussed APIs, caching, and data delivery.
Our API directory now includes 41 postal APIs. The newest is the New Zealand Post Tracking Notification API. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the GeoNames API. We list 89 GeoNames mashups. Below you’ll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of postal APIs.
This week, we had 58 new APIs added to our API directory including a product customization service, a smart home automation service, and a streaming video application. We also explored whether or not REST is losing it’s flair and described alternatives to REST.
Agile CRM launches API to integrate its customer relationship management features into apps. Wurl video streaming service launches API . Plus: API evolution through hypermedia APIs, Orange Chef Company secures $1.2 million in seed funding, and 15 new APIs.
Postmaster, a technology company that specializes in small package logistics optimization, has just announced the addition of a new Box and Bin Packing feature to the Postmaster API. Earlier this year, Postmaster launched a beta version of the Postmaster API which helps businesses integrate and optimize the shipping process when using carriers Fedex, UPS, and USPS.
Of the many APIs we published this week, eight were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll illuminate those eight by throwing them into the spotlight. The eight included the LifeTrak API. LifeTrak allows developers to integrate activity tracking into their applications. These activities consist of calorie tracking, heart race, steps, distance, and the ability to see progress over a range of dates. Life Track sells for between 50 and 100 dollars and is waterproof up to 90 feet. The API is available for both iOS and Android unlike similar products that are only open to a select few developers.
