Shoudio is an amusing iOS application made to tag places with audio snippets. These can be anything a user imagines, and a lot of fun could be had with this. For example, integrating this into Geocaching could be a lot of fun, allowing things like audio hints to help Geocachers find the cache. However, the developers of Shoudio didn't want it limited to just one platform, so they released a Shoudio API to allow clients for other platforms, and fun mashups.
Of the many APIs we published this week, nine were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those nine, which included the VoiceShot API. VoiceShot IVR (Interactive Voice Response) allows the automation of incoming and outgoing phone calls and sending and receiving text messages for application developers. This provides developers with a means to automate customer service and customize their application experience. To learn more about the VoiceShot API visit the VoiceShot site as well as the VoiceShot API blog post.
