Mashups using the same API (2)
The Scout API, by T3, enables 3rd parties to take advantage of the context the company brings to advertising. Added to location sensitivity, which has been employed by the likes of Walgreens and others geofencing their stores, Scout brings weather, time, speed and orientation. Scout joins a list of 274 advertising APIs in our directory. Public documentation is unavailable; interested developers can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
A few months ago, ProgrammableWeb announced the release of Heroku’s Platform API, which allowed developers to integrate the Heroku platform with third party applications and services. Now, Heroku has launched a public beta for OAuth 2.0 support for the Platform API. OAuth 2.0 support allows developers to control service needs as opposed to offering full service access to all user accounts.
