MapQuest is known for driving directions. Now it hopes to bring those to mobile navigation systems everywhere. Today the company has launched the MapQuest Open Guidance API built on top of OpenStreetMap. Developers will now be able to include turn-by-turn directions in mobile apps without any usage limits being imposed by MapQuest.
Innovation in web service APIs is not always technical, sometimes it's about money. Such is the case with Yahoo's announcement that later this year they will begin charging for usage of BOSS (Build your Own Search Service), their search web service for developers. Given that search revenue is typically ad-driven, and that advertising doesn't typically mesh with APIs, this has meant that search APIs have been one of the most challenging classes of APIs for providers to monetize. So it's notable to see how Yahoo has chosen to tackle this: via a 'utility' pricing model, somewhat akin to how infrastructure services like Amazon Web Services charge by usage.
Back in February 2010 we asked Why can't you share photos on Foursquare? We discussed that this could be seen as an oversight or an opportunity for others. However, this question has now been deprecated by Foursquare with the introduction of its add photo API method, which suggests that the previous absence of a method was simply because it wasn't a priority, it was an oversight or the opportunity hasn't been taken up by developers as Foursquare had hoped. In addition to the new add photo method, Foursquare have also introduced API methods which allow comments to be added and deleted from checkins. These methods have already been rolled into the official iPhone and Android apps along with a few 3rd party apps that use the Foursquare API.
