This week we had 85 new APIs added to our API directory including a data integration service, a social bookmarking tool, video chat service, crowd-sourcing employment platform, medicinal marijuana information service, and a photo sharing service. We also reviewed the suite of Salesforce.com APIs, covered a public bathroom location service and InfoChimps’ latest bundle of Geo APIs. Below are more details on each of these new APIs.
Uberblic is another instance of what may become a trend in the world with thousands of APIs: the Meta-API. The Uberblic Doppleganger API is currently in beta, but it is quite ambitious in that it looks to position itself as a API cross-reference or mutli-plexer. Submit an ID from one API to the Doppleganger, get 4-5 IDs for matching content from other APIs.
