Photo sharing mobile application picplz has a new API that has entered beta. The service provides read/write access to the picplz platform for sharing and editing photos. Developers can upload photos and use filter effects including "Instant Film," "Russian Toy Camera," "the 70s" and "High Contrast Monochrome." The API also provides read access to others' photos. Like its mobile apps, the API likely lets you add a caption and tag your location.
The process of taking your photos and sharing them online with your friends has never been easier. There are several services available to do that today like TwitPic, YFrog and others. The success of Instagram even led to an unofficial API, which was subsequently shut down to be eventually replaced with its official API. The photo sharing services space seems ripe for the emergence of APIs, which in turn might trigger the next round of innovation from developers.
