Our ProgrammableWeb mashups directory now lists 2128 applications which are using 243 different web services. Here's a sampling of some interesting recent additions, only one of which is using maps:

  • Visualizing Earmarks: Graphically illustrates how Congress awarded earmarks in 2005 by agency, state and organization, as well as a searchable database of the earmarks and their recipients. Java applet built by the Sunlight Foundation with IBM Many Eyes visualization tools.
  • Wishpot: Wishpot is a free social and mobile shopping service that lets you save and share interesting things you find in stores and online. Strong mobile interface. Integrates on top of the Amazon eCommerce and Shopping.com APIs.
  • Zoho and Omnidrive: A good, useful integration of two online office/enterprise services with the Zoho application suite integrated with the Omnidrive online storage solution. If you have your documents online in OmniDrive, you can view and edit these documents just by double clicking on them. The documents then are opened in Zoho Applications. (In a similar productivity vein, see the Google Spreadsheets Editor that lets you edit spreadsheets from the iGoogle homepage.)
  • New 7 Wonders of the World: Nice map of the New 7 Wonders of the world along with YouTube video for each of the 7 wonder.
