Some of the newer or less frequently seen APIs include Google Geocoding, KooKoo and Recurly. The most often used APIs this week are Twilio, Twilio SMS and Twitter. And the most commonly used types of APIs were Mapping (3 APIs, 4 mashups), Telephony (3 APIs, 5 mashups) and Video (3 APIs, 4 mashups). The list below shows which APIs were used by which mashups:
