Whether its a new e-commerce startup carving out its niche (e.g. Chirpify, Anedot), or an industry giant releasing new API capabilities (e.g. PayPal, MasterCard), e-commerce stories flood the headlines with new ways to transfer money across the web and on the go. However, Terapeak's approach to e-commerce concentrates on behavior as opposed to money transfer. Terapeak has set the industry standard in e-commerce analytics and market research. Recently, Terapeak aimed to broaden its base and encourage deeper analysis with the new Terapeak API and Developer program.
In addition to the 4 new APIs we profiled a few days ago, there were 4 more new APIs add to our API directory last week. These include a new API to get access to government data regarding the US Congress, an API that gets you access to a visual search engine for fashion products, a read-write API for geo-related services (which we wrote about last week in TownMe Launches Read/Write Location Data API), and a new semantic search API. Below are more details on each of these:
We have listed 219 Mashups for the Last.fm API . But we do have 189 APIs related to music. Ladies and Gentlemen, is it too early to declare the emperor in musical APIs? After all, one developer's favorite API may be other developer's nightmare. Well , judging by it's popularity Last.fm sure is a sultan of swinging music APIs.
