Single purpose API
JSON, XML, REST
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.
The power of choice is a valuable part of our everyday lives, and with so many options at our disposal along with wildly different tastes and opinions, it's a good thing we have the freedom to choose. Based on this idea, it's easy to see how things like music charts, recommendations from film critics and general ratings on social media platforms may not be the opinions shared by everybody, and a recommendation system that could focus more on a person's specific preferences would be quite useful. That's pretty much what Tumbz has set out to do. The Tumbz API also makes it possible for this functionality to be integrated with other applications.
