Single purpose API
Of the many APIs we published this week, eight were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those eight, which included the Topsy API. The Topsy API allows developers to integrate social metrics, social insight, and social content from past time periods or in real time. These metrics include the full spectrum of social media data. From simply counting the amount of hash tags for a certain topic to the influencers that started the topic in the first place, Topsy is extensive. It also indexes data in real time, which explains why they have indexed over 100 billion itmes. To learn more about the Topsy API visit the Topsy site as well as the Topsy API blog post.
General Motors plans to launch the General Motors Remote API later this year. The API will allow developers to build apps that remotely interact with GM vehicles. The gamut of potential apps includes everything from security related features to vehicle diagnostics.
