Plivo is a telephony platform for integration with other apps. It is built to be integrative and take desired call making and receiving functions off of developersâ€™ hands. It provides capacity for conferencing, call tracking, recording, and more. This API is HTTP-based with SSL support for exposing all of the services essential functionality. It returns JSON responses. Pricing details are forthcoming from the developers.
Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, those ten will get thrown into the spotlight. Todays featured APIs include The Giving Lab API, which considers itself a charity and aims to help charities reach their goals through the technical side. To read more about how The Giving Lab is making giving, fundraising and paying money to charity easier, visit The Giving Lab API post and The Giving Lab Site.
Plivo was founded after its founders, Venky Balasubramanian and Michael Ricordeau, found each other on Github and collectively decided, "[t]elephony is complex." Today, Plivo's focus is simple in statement, but complex in execution: Plivo offers "simple and powerful APIs that make it easier for businesses to develop telephony applications." Plivo's building block APIs allow developers to create telephony applications without learning the nuts and bolts of legacy telephony.
