Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those ten, which included the Thinkery API. Thinkery aims to help users organize their notes, to do’s, and thoughts to increase productivity and personal management. The Thinkery API was released allowing developers to further this goal through the integration of the Thinkery functionality in third party apps. To learn more about the Thinkery API visit the Thinkery site as well as the Thinkery API blog post.
