Mashups using the same API (11)
Location-sharing service Foursquare was down most of Monday, apparently due to a database issue. No Foursquare website or apps were available. And with the API also down, third party applications were helpless. Yet, it's a good reminder to developers to plan for downtime and to providers to have communications in place to let others know about your service's issues when they arise.
Location is all the rage these days, especially in the mobile world. Geoloqi and its location-sharing Geoloqi API allow developers to easily integrate location awareness into their applications. Its Geofencing API is especially neat, as it allows developers to add triggers based on locations, time, and travel speed, or any combination of the three. It just launched a new site in an effort to reach out to more developers.
After months of anticipation, Facebook officially launched its Places feature to check-in to nearby locations and share the place with your friends. The launch includes an API extension to its Graph API, which will first be read only. Launch partners include location-sharing platforms Foursquare and Gowalla, which are part of a private beta for the upcoming read/write API.
