Single purpose API
The ProgrammableWeb directory has over 70 package tracking APIs to help educate developers on available shipment tracking options. The APIs contain various features such as package arrival verification, scanning services, price comparison, and more. Click here to learn about 7 of those APIs.
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 SongMeanings API. SongMeanings is a social entertainment platform that allows users to follow their favorite artist and search/ debate the underlying lyrical meaning of songs. The site boasts over 1,800,000 licensed tracks, all of which encourage their users to contribute any lyrics the site does not have. The SongMeanings API makes the database accessible to developers who can retrieve song meanings by song ID numbers. To learn more about the SongMeanings API visit the SongMeanings site as well as the SongMeanings API blog post.
Great customer service has long been a competitive advantage for any business. But for online merchants, that can take up valuable extra time, as customers wonder where their packages are. Amazon's massive online retail business has done many things, such as famously upended the book industry. It's also changed customer expectations--free shipping (or shipping by subscription), fast delivery, giving customers the ability to track with a click of a button. It puts the mom-and-pop online stores--and many other large operations--at a disadvantage. Aftership provides the Aftership API to help level the playing field.
