Single purpose API
Of the many APIs we published this week, eleven were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those eleven, which include the ZOWi API. ZOWi is a learning tool designed to help people memorize information through various oral questions and answers. Specifically, ZOWi will ask a user a question and then determine if the answer is right or wrong from the users oral response. The API simply makes this functionality availbe to integrate with other applications. To learn more about the ZOWi API visit the ZOWi site as well as the ZOWi API blog post.
ecobee, a company that provides intelligent energy management solutions, has released the public ecobee API that will make it possible for developers to create new applications that integrate with the functionality of ecobee's Smart Thermostats. The company prides itself on having developed energy solutions that are easy to understand, easy to manage, and ultimately reduce the impact on the environment and save money.
