ProgrammableWeb first covered Point.io last year when the Point.io API was released. The original API gave mobile apps access to data from multiple cloud storage providers. Point.io has expanded its single point of access approach with the release of APIdoc. APIdoc provides a single API that grants any application access to data that resides in a public cloud, private cloud, behind a firewall, or elsewhere. While providing seamless access to multiple data repositories, APIdoc ensures security for compliance and auditing purposes.
Our API directory now includes 76 storage APIs. The newest is the Pervasive Data Integrator API. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the Amazon S3 API. We list 77 Zillow mashups. Below you'll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of storage APIs.
Last year Dropbox announced a preview of the new Dropbox API v2. The new version simplified the Dropbox developer experience. In hopes to move toward a more simplified platform, Dropbox also announced deprecation of its Sync and Datastore APIs.
