Mashups using the same API (11)
National Public Radio (NPR) has just opened another means for developers to access content from NPR.org: a new API for transcripts. This API provides access to tens of thousands of transcripts from some of the most popular programs on NPR. As we covered last year and in our NPR API Profile, their APIs open-up a range of interesting possibilities.
The legendary Billboard charts are now open for mixing, not by DJs, but by programmers. Billboard, a service of Nielsen Business Media, has a new API that lets developers search and read information from all the Billboard historical charts. The initial offering is its Chart service and later on Billboard will "roll out the Artist and Track services to add even more depth and perspective." the API is a simple REST interface that developers can send HTTP GET requests to in a familiar service/version/resource fashion. We've added a new Billboard API profile with details.
Shoutcast maintains a radio directory of 50,000+ radio stations from all around the world. The company, owned by AOL, released its first Shoutcast API a few years ago, but has since released version 2.0. The updated API provides developers with more advanced options for integrating music streaming services into web services and mobile applications using RESTful calls formatted in XML, JSON and RSS.
