The Latest APIs

What's new on the API front? The current total API count at ProgrammableWeb is 214 with average of one new API added every two days during the past month. Here's the latest from the relatively busy past two weeks:

  • Google Ajax Search: A JavaScript library that allows you to embed Google Search in your web pages and other web applications. (And the AdSense API was official last week.)
  • TagWorld: The social networking site now allows creation of custom widgets.
  • Rhapsody: Has been busy updating their music API with new features as well creating a more complete developer's web site.
  • Naver: The very successful Korean search engine has an API as well as the NaGle mashup that gives it a Google-like interface.

Keep in mind that there are a variety of ways to view the API listings here:

Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I'm very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely out there.
