12seconds.tv has released the first version of its API, allowing developers to integrate the service, which lets users record "video status" updates no longer than 12 seconds, directly into their own sites. Their new REST API is currently only read-only, providing methods to retrieve a user's video or their "friend stream," get information about a specific video (including its playback URL), and search videos by tag. More technical details at our 12secods.tv API profile.
Adding new features, service updates or interesting content to your business blog is great, but how do you ensure that your users know the cool new stuff is even there? Using a tool like WhatsNew is one way to tackle this issue. It's a service that provides an easy way to show repeat visitors what's new in a given service or application. The WhatsNew API offers even more flexibility, as it allows developers to customise the WhatsNew widget to better suit their specific needs.
