Location is all the rage these days, especially in the mobile world. Geoloqi and its location-sharing Geoloqi API allow developers to easily integrate location awareness into their applications. Its Geofencing API is especially neat, as it allows developers to add triggers based on locations, time, and travel speed, or any combination of the three. It just launched a new site in an effort to reach out to more developers.
At the The Next Web Hackathon in Amsterdam, developers played with a lot of new APIs. One that caught our attention is the Gbanga Puppetmaster API. Gbanga is a location-aware gaming platform, intended for use with games where walking around within the real world matter. It's released one game, Gbanga Famiglia, a mobile phone-based app using a theme of mafia families taking over areas and finding loot. Much more exciting, however, is its API, which allows for quests within Famiglia, and other, separate location-based games.
