Single purpose API
"Two start-ups working together are like two drunks leaning on each other for support". I first heard this phrase from a former CEO of a successful start-up company who had previously built his business up from scratch ten years ago and sold it for tens of millions of dollars.

I think the emergence of API technology as a strategic component of a start-up’s business strategy means that 2 start-ups working together can achieve more than just giving each other mutual support.
Of the many APIs we published this week, 15 were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those 15, which include the Datownia API. The Datownia API generates an API from an Excel spreadsheet that allows developers to integrate their data with any website or app. The object of the API is to allow developers to update content on multi-platform apps simultaneously. To learn more about the Datownia API visit the Datownia site as well as the Datownia API blog post.

Datownia, a recent product from Release Mobile, generates an API from an Excel spreadsheet that allows developers to integrate their data with any website or app.
