Mashups using the same API (2610)
In less than sixty days since the private beta release of its API, Portland-based Shizzow has now released its API (our Shizzow API Profile) to the public. If you are not familiar with Shizzow, it is a location-based social service that a small, yet dedicated, team of techies built with the goal of helping you build quality relationships through face-to-face interaction. Sharing some similarity with Yahoo!'s Fire Eagle and other location based services, Shizzow functions as a geo-location service that allows users to send "shouts" out of their location, which are subsequently passed on to friends through updates in several mediums. Originally limited for use by Portlanders, Shizzow recently went public in conjunction with the public release of their API.
Planning a trip, whether just down the road or into the next city, normally revolves around the distance of the desired location. It's common practice to search for the distance between two points on a map, then take a rough guess as to how long it will actually take to get there. But we all know that distance isn't the only factor to consider. What about mode of transport, peak traffic hours or alternate routes? All these can dramatically affect how long it actually takes to get to your destination. This post will discuss how iGeolise's Travel Time and the Travel Time API changes the way people search and the results that are produced.
