Single purpose API
Parse is exploding, now powers 100k apps. Orbeus offers visual recognition for Google Glass without the creep factor. Plus: Apple's iOS gamepad API, the Pinterest API is coming, and 11 new APIs.
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.
