For music fans who enjoy listening to playlists on their laptops or desktops, Tomahawk is a music player with a few extra bells and whistles that may be of some interest. It's an open-source, cross-platform music player, which means it enables a user to play music stored on their own hard drives as well as from a variety of other music sources like Spotify, SoundCloud, YouTube and more. The Toma.hk API makes this functionality available to developers or users to add songs to websites.
TrueSample, SurveyMonkey's validation technology, released the TrueSample API that allows developers to qualify survey responders to achieve effective results. The technology driving TrueSample ensures that people are who they claim to be and only take a survey once, all while eliminating those who choose random answers and unqualified responders. The TrueSample API provides pre and post survey data as well as real-time feedback to provide industry leading insight into surveys of all types.
Pearson, a household name in the education and training markets, typically brings traditional study materials to mind (e.g. thick study books, video lectures, etc.). However, Pearson recently launched its fifth API showing a dedication to innovation and meeting the rapidly changing technology scene where Pearson students live on a daily basis. Pearson's latest API, Nursing and Health Survival Guides API, allows developers to integrate data from Pearson's highly acclaimed Nursing guides into an application of choice.
