Of the many APIs we published this week, thirteen were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those thirtenn, which include the StatusPage API. The StatusPage API provides developers with a solution to customer communication when their site or application is experiencing downtime. Specifically, it provides notification tools (email and SMS), downtime monitoring, insight into performance metrics, and customer customization. To learn more about the StatusPage API visit the StatusPage site as well as the StatusPage API blog post.
You are shopping online and want to send a gift. But do you really want to have the retailer send one of those typed out cards with it? Sure, it includes your personal message but it just makes the recipient miss your handwriting and the ink. Sociagram offers online retailers an interesting alternative: the ability for their customers to add a video message. In many cases, that might be a a leap ahead from a pen and ink note--especially in my handwriting. The Sociagram API is the tool for retailers to use the service on their site. There are 15 APIs under "gift" in our API directory, but this could be the first to offer a "social video" twist to the topic.
The Sensetonic WoTkit (Web of Things kit) API enables developers to integrate its "WoTkit" sensing platform used to connect objects to the Internet. The idea extends to engaging "end users as ‘participatory sensors’, allowing our customers to offer new and revolutionary services." Sensetecnic's API joins a handful of at least 6 APIs related to the internet of things in our API directory.
