Photo APIs have long been a staple of developer applications. There are more than 350 photo APIs in the ProgrammableWeb directory and almost 800 photo mashups. However, most applications integrate with photo sharing services, like the Flickr API and Instagram API, missing the real power of photo APIs. This post identifies four ways that APIs are getting smart by using image recognition technology to find faces, words and more.
SpotXchange, video advertising platform, has released the most advanced API in the video advertising industry. The ClubLinq Identity and Offers API will be installed at Maryland Live Casino’s Arundel Mills Location. Plus: CamFind opens API to third party developers.
This week we had 56 new APIs added to our API directory including a service that builds word-of-mouth campaign management software providing read only access to its CRM system, a visual image search and recognition application, a ordering, inventory and point of sale management service for both retailers and suppliers, and geolocation based off of an IP address. In addition, we profiled an on demand delivery and shipping service.
As another week comes to a close, we take a look back at some of the APIs that caught our attention. This week there were 40 APIs added to our directory this week and our team picked the ones that stood out.
Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll illuminate those ten by throwing them into the spotlight. The eight included the TaDaweb API. Unlike what seems to be the trend with big data, TaDabweb focuses on what they like to term “small data.”
Image Searcher, Inc., an image recognition and mobile search technology company, has announced the public release of the Image Searcher Image Recognition API which leverages the same technology used to power the CamFind and TapTapSee applications. CamFind is a visual mobile search app and TapTapSee is an app designed for the blind and visually impaired.
Pubnub raises $11 million to build out API-based services network. Precor’s Preva Fitness API turns workout into playout. Plus: Tictail’s new API and tools for retail stores, New Zealand adopts common web platform, and 10 new APIs.
