There have been a lot of new socially based mashups showing up recently. In fact, we recently topped 700 social mashups. While many of these use the Facebook API or Twitter API, there are many more social APIs. The mashups below run the gamut, though, yes, also include Facebook.
Now that summer is in full swing we should all get off our computers (for a short amount of time) and go enjoy some sunshine. What could be a better way of absorbing some vitamin d than to play a rousing round of disc golf. DGCourseReview provides a directory that allows users to search by location and find local disc golf courses. The company’s Disc Golf Course Review API allows developers to pull course information, ratings, reviews and create custom applications using this information.
BodyMedia provides insight into your body’s physical state through four scientific measurements. It uses a pedometer-like device to measure physical motion and steps, but also has galvanic skin response, skin temperature and heat flux measures. The BodyMedia API will give application developers access to all these metrics on your body’s recent activity. FitBit is in a similar space, but FitBit just doesn’t have as many measurements to use in its applications.
