Mashups using the same API (7)
The Kiva plugin for Wordpress lets people raise the visibility of Kiva by displaying loans in the fundraising stage with a link donate.
KivaAlerts.com is an alerts application built on the Kiva.org API to let you know when loans of your interest appear on Kiva.org.
This mashup plots the microfinance loans from Kiva lenders on a Google Map. Popups show details on the individual loans and borrowers.
As the various offerings by mapping API providers continue to mature, new opportunities have emerged for would-be advertisers and map mashup developers to tap into the ability to include advertising directly on a map. In addition to providing a wealth of information and spatial context, mapping APIs have the potential to serve as an additional venue for advertising.
Some of the best experiences in my life are trips that I took with my closest friends. These memories could be even better if I had not been forced to wait so long to get paid back after fronting the hotel bill. Sometimes friends have different ideas on what is an acceptable timeline for recompense. Now, thanks to Splitable, we can all avoid setting ourselves up for a let down by leveling the playing field. Splitable is an easy-to-integrate payment solution that lets customers split the cost of products and services with their friends. The simple online interface provides a forum for discussing plans and then facilitates payment. The company offers the Splitable API that gives store owners the ability to allow their customers to split the cost of a product or service.
