Single purpose API
Of the many APIs we published this week, six were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those six, which include the Hackpad API. Hackpad is a collaborative tool that allows groups of people to edit a document in real time. The API simply makes this functionality available for developers to integrate into their apps or websites. Offering a similar interface to that of Google Docs, Hackpad allows users to login to the service through their Google, email, and Facebook credentials. To learn more about the Hackpad API visit the Hackpad site as well as the Hackpad API blog post.
Taking notes, sharing thoughts with a team or others who may be interested, bouncing ideas around or working on quickly getting a job done; all these things are so easily accomplished with the help of a live group word processing tool. HackPad offers just this. It's a lightweight collaborative tool that allows users to invite other users and edit documents in real time. What's even better is that the availability of the HackPad API means that it's possible to integrate this functionality into other sites.
Here at ProgrammableWeb our team constantly comes across a lot of great APIs. With 54 new APIs being added to our directory last week, many can get lost in the shuffle. Our staff took a moment to highlight the APIs that stood out to them most last week.
