Thrutu is an Android app that helps users exchange information while talking on the phone. With one click, people can exchange their current locations, pictures either through the camera or from your gallery, and contacts. However, people might want to use this data-sharing capability to exchange other things during a call, too. Thrutu facilitates this through custom buttons via the Thrutu API.
Wikia Search has announced a new feature called Wikia Intelligent Search Extensions, or WISE, which founder Jimmy Wales likens to "Facebook Apps for search results." The new platform allows third parties to build applications, called WISEApps, that Wikia Search users can enable in their accounts and which add additional functionality to relevant search results (more at our Wikia API profile). For example, the results for an ordinary search for "Chicago weather" will include a link to AccuWeather.com, but if the user enables the AccuWeather.com WISEApp, the search result will include a full graphical five-day weather forecast.
