Twitch today announced the Twitch Mobile Software Development Kit (SDK), which will eventually let mobile device gamers capture, archive, and live-broadcast their games to Twitch, a social network for gamers that already has a large presence on consoles and PCs. Android and iOS device owners have access to the Twitch community through a dedicated mobile app, but it allows only for viewing and interacting with content that's already been posted to the site. For mobile gaming fanatics, things are about to get a whole lot more interesting.
When it comes to mobile payments, consumers are more likely to proceed to checkout when a transaction is smoother and doesn't require the inputting of lots of numbers. With that in mind, Payvia recently added two features to its bill-to-carrier mobile payments platform, available to merchants through an API. ProgrammableWeb spoke about those changes and more with company CTO Alek Zdziarski at API World.
Even though Alaska Airlines was one of the first airlines to offer an iPhone application, allowing travelers to check-in and use their phone as mobile boarding pass, early efforts were essentially just "screen-scraped" from the companies website, providing a very poor user experience, not really delivering on the process of the mobile web. Since you're a ProgrammableWeb reader, you can probably guess what the company needed. After all, mobile has fueled API growth.
