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 Tumbz API. Tumbz takes the idea of customer reviews to the next level by making it more customized to the individual. Instead of having an average rating from everyone, Tumbz allows its users to see the ratings of people they respect, have similar interests to, or generally agree with. The Tumbz API simply makes this functionality available to developers. To learn more about the Tumbz API visit the Tumbz site as well as the Tumbz API blog post.

But if you play nice, they can make exceptions for commercial apps and games they have tested.
