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 illuminate those eight by throwing them into the spotlight. The eight included the Locu API, a database API that exposes Locu’s business information. Locu is constantly searching the web for business data. This allows developers real-time information about prices, menu items, venue information and etc. With their success in the restaurant industry Locu is now aiming, with the API, to branch into other markets. To learn more about Locu visit the Locu API blog post and the Locu site.
Locu, one of CNN's hot startups to watch, has released an API that exposes Locu's database of business information to third party developers. Locu launched the Locu API at Tech Disrupt SF 2012 and drew immediate attention. The API allows developers to retrieve real-time business data (e.g. venue information, pricelists, menus, etc.) and integrate the data into existing applications. Locu's index crawls the web for business data, and the API makes that data available to other websites and applications.
