Mashups using the same API (1)
Businesses are taking advantage of the ubiquity of mobile devices and SMS. This tutorial describes how to send an SMS message to a phone with PHP using the Twilio API. Twilio provides numerous communications services, including the ability to make and receive phone calls through the browser, mobile or desktop, send and receive SMS and MMS messages, and handle short codes.
Nexmo's mission is to take SMS global, putting messages on the 5 billion smartphones across continents and languages, with 800 carriers in 200 countries. As Alex Williams noted in Techcrunch, Nexmo raised $3 million from Intel Capital, NHN Investment Corporation and Initial Capital. Nexmo is: "one of a new generation of companies that are disrupting the telco market. It streamlines the layers between the telcos and developers, removing the hubs by offering a carrier grade service based upon a worldwide network that gives companies like Airbnb an international messaging platform for communicating between buyers and sellers over SMS." The RESTful and SMPP APIs save large multinationals from having to build their own infrastructure.
Did you know most political polls in the U.S. are still done by phone? Most of it is automated, with voters using the buttons on the phone to reply to questions. Now some of these polls--including those by the Democratic National Committee--can be performed by a mashup, Precision Polling.
