It's been a year since developers were underwhelmed by the first release of the Google Plus API. The search engine's nascent social network has gained in popularity and even improved its developer tools, but it is still lacking the main feature many developers request--a writable Google Plus API.
Google has a lot of APIs, more than any other company we track. Perhaps as part of adding many APIs, the search giant also has to remove them from time to time. Recently the company has become more liberal in its platform pruning, with at least three separate announcements this year. Most recently Google dropped three more APIs, including the Google Buzz API.
A survey of API experiences raised some of the largest problems developers encounter, including which companies cause them. The Facebook API was mentioned far and away more than any other in long-form answers to questions about headaches, horror stories and other issues while integrating with APIs. Also mentioned often were Google APIs and the Twitter API. While it should be noted that all three are also among the most popular for developers, there are lessons to be learned in mining the results of this survey put out to Hacker News readers.
