The Transit App, an application that provides commuters with real-time transit information on iOS, makes its Transit App API available to developers who may want to integrate the functionality with other applications. The app has already been widely downloaded and received positive customer reviews, and filling the gap that was left when Apple removed transit from its own Maps app, it seems to be a really useful tool for anyone who relies on public transportation and the ability to get accurate and timely travel information.
Of the many APIs we published this week, seven were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those seven, which included the FaxLogic API. FaxLogic is a cloud-based fax-service that combines normal fax machine functionality with features of analog fax, Internet fax and fax servers. FaxLogic securely sends, stores, manages, and receives fax through email eliminating the need for phone lines, while also enabling scanning options that previously didn't exist. To learn more about the FaxLogic API visit the FaxLogic site as well as the FaxLogic API blog post.
The Punkrock.org API uses POST and GET calls that allow a user of your app to access their own user info on Punkrock.org, including friends, mail, notifications and allows them to upload photos. Requesting an API key is required for access to services.
