Single purpose API
Of the many APIs we published this week, twelve were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those twelve, which include the Instamojo API. Instamojo is a payment system for selling digital creations. However, unlike eBay or Amazon, selling a product is as easy as sharing a link. Instamojo takes care of payment processing and delivery, taking a 10 percent cut on the cost of the sale. To learn more about the Insamojo API visit the Instamojo site as well as the Instamojo API blog post.
The SolarPlots API provides a new data tool to track where the sun will be in any given location in the US (and adjacent parts of Mexico and Canada) for any specific date and time or series of dates. The sun plotting search tool could possibly be used by photographers needing to know best times to shoot twilight scenes, for sun-bathers wanting to book the best time on a hotel rooftop, or home buyers wanting to calculate how much direct sunlight their new property may get. Developers could use the app to scale up such individual needs or to add sun-loving contextual information to a location-based app product.
