Today in APIs: Plivo Raises $1.75M, All I Want for Christmas is My User Data, My..., and 11 New APIs
YC-backed telephony startup Plivo raises $1.75M. Mobile app developers want user data for Christmas. Plus: Lulu shutters its API, Mozilla Social API integrates Facebook into Firefox, and 11 new APIs.
Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, those ten will get thrown into the spotlight. Todays featured APIs include The Giving Lab API, which considers itself a charity and aims to help charities reach their goals through the technical side. To read more about how The Giving Lab is making giving, fundraising and paying money to charity easier, visit The Giving Lab API post and The Giving Lab Site.
Plivo was founded after its founders, Venky Balasubramanian and Michael Ricordeau, found each other on Github and collectively decided, "[t]elephony is complex." Today, Plivo's focus is simple in statement, but complex in execution: Plivo offers "simple and powerful APIs that make it easier for businesses to develop telephony applications." Plivo's building block APIs allow developers to create telephony applications without learning the nuts and bolts of legacy telephony.
