Mashups using the same API (1)
In January, OnStar announced an API would allow third party developers to integrate their applications with OnStar's platform. Last week, General Motors announced its first partner for API integration: RelayRides. RelayRides is "[t]he world's largest peer to peer carsharing marketplace." The partnership with GM allows OnStar users to leave their keys in their cars when renting a car to a fellow RelayRider. The renter can then unlock the car with a smartphone app or by responding to a text message.
We've added 6 APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory today in Logistics and Auto categories, among others. Also added were several SDKs for Natural Language Processing.
InviteBox, social referral program, allows merchants, bloggers, developers (and anybody else with a web presence) to refer friends and customers to recommended products. Users can take advantage of pre-determined referral offers (e.g. coupons, promo codes, free products, cash incentives, etc.) or create custom incentive programs. InviteBox offers all the needed moving parts from creating the referral program to implementation, and the analytics to measure success. Users can simply insert a widget into a website or utilize the Reward Callback API.
