Single purpose API
The HackLolla API contest is done and we have the info about the awesome mashups that won prizes in it. The music loving developer contest, announced in May, urged applications coded against the Lollapalooza schedule and artist discovery.
Shoudio is an amusing iOS application made to tag places with audio snippets. These can be anything a user imagines, and a lot of fun could be had with this. For example, integrating this into Geocaching could be a lot of fun, allowing things like audio hints to help Geocachers find the cache. However, the developers of Shoudio didn't want it limited to just one platform, so they released a Shoudio API to allow clients for other platforms, and fun mashups.
Major U.S. music festival Lollapalooza is catering to hackers with its new Lollapalooza API and a contest. Even though music may be of interest to those who program, music festivals normally don't fall under our purview here at ProgrammableWeb. We're excited that this acclaimed music festival is making its data available to the public this year so developers can build applications involving their scheduling and artist info.
