Single purpose API
Gracenote has announced an internet music recommendation API: Gracenote Rhythm. A new API Documentation Workshop will be held in Silicon Valley next month. Plus, Sony provides SmartWatch developers some API advice and 6 new APIs.
Quick: name that huge search engine you use a lot that starts with G but isn't...Google. (Hint: it's a wholly owned subsidiary of Sony.) Right. It's Gracenote, the folks who help you identify all those tracks in your music library. Okay, it's not exactly a search engine in the conventional sense. But it does have 130 million tracks and TV listings across 28 countries. And it handles 15 billion queries a month. We've covered Gracenote's earlier APIs in a previous column.
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 nine, which include the Wowzer API. Wowzer, a provider of video screening/nterviewing, announced its Wowzer API. The Wowzer API allows developers to integrate the Wowzer features into their existing hiring process. As with many business practices, efficiency is very important, which is why Wowzer believes its video screening reduces screening time by 75% compared to phone screening.
