The ACME Animated QR Code Generator API hosts a RESTful Web Service for creating animated codes including QR codes in real time. Animation creation requests and animation updates are communicated in JSON, while animations are delivered in mp4, gif, or png and zip for individual frames. Animated QR codes provide 'call to action' scan targets for users and can be embedded with a company's branding, logo, or campaign. Clients requiring large volume animated QR codes and/or automated code creation can use the API directly. Individual making retail purchases can use ACME's online interactive 'Coderunner' QR code generator.
Ten APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Insurance, Books, Subtitles and Podcasts. Highlights include an API for automatically generating custom animated QR codes and an API for the ListenNotes podcast search engine. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
