Mashups using the same API (2)
With work forces becoming increasingly more mobile, there is a need for businesses to have quick and easy communication lines with employees on the move. Being able to achieve this with existing enterprise and telecommunication infrastructure means companies can improve communication with staff without increasing costs. This was the idea behind the creation of Red Oxygen. It's a service that combines the functionality of email applications with the convenience and mobility of text messaging. With the help of Red Oxygen's API, sending text messages from an application or CRM is simple.

Here are three ways mainstream users are asking for APIs.
Railsware, creator of Mailtrap (email test environment), has released the Mailtrap API. Mailtrap provides a "fake" SMTP server so developers can test email environments without the need of actual customers or users. Mailtrap has proved a useful tool to the developer community; however, API access to Mailtrap features has been desired for third party integration. Mailtrap Product Manager, Pavel Pavlovsky, announced that numerous developers requested API access over the past year and Railsware is happy to announce its availability.
