Twitter added its own photo upload feature, after years of clients adding photos via APIs such as the TwitPic API. The new feature will be slowly rolled out on Twitter.com to all users. It is also expected to be incorporated into Twitter's official apps, as well as the Twitter API, upon which Twitter builds all of its end-user services.
Google Maps API is one of the most popular APIs in our directory. A month back, we reported on Google’s plans to charge for high usage of its Google Maps API. This led to a good amount of confusion among developers on whether they would fall under the category of high usage and if occasional spikes in usage would end up labeling their applications as heavy users. Meanwhile, MapQuest capitalized on the opportunity to declare its maps 100% free.
It's funny that when I talk to people in the travel industry about mashups and APIs, most of them get glazed looks in their eyes. Throw in terms like location based services or geospatial awareness and I've lost them. What most of them don't realize is that the majority of the travel apps that are starting to come out, both online and for mobile are mashups that are relying on location awareness and geospatial data. Many of them, like Pocketvillage are a consumer interface on top of a variety of APIs all normalized for a single homogenous user experience. That's right, it's essentially a metasearch tool that pulls in content from a variety of sources including Viator, GetYourGuide, TourCMS, Rezgo, AirBnB, and many others. What differentiates a metasearch like Pocketvillage from other metasearch applications however, is the fact that with location based services enabled, Pocketvillage can return content based on your current location. The issue right now however is that not all geo data is equal. Not all APIs provide geolocation information and some return it based on different criteria.
