Quova's is a geolocation service, went free last November. The company has revamped its developer portal and added a few awesome new features to the Quova API. The company also added JSON as a response format, as so many other APIs have lately. Unlike the APIs ditching XML, Quova is keeping the XML format and expanding developer options. Also, the company added a developer forum and app gallery to its portal, to encourage community around its API.
Mobile may be the rage, but there's a whole breed of location applications possible from desktop and laptop computers. The trick is IP geolocation and the company behind the Quova API wants developers to push the boundaries with its new contest. The company will announce the contest today at SXSW, but Quova's Laurie Anne Lassek gave us a sneak peek yesterday (see video embedded below).
We've previously covered 3 free to geolocate any user. Today there's another option, with Quova offering its service for free for the first time. The simple API provides extensive geographic information with only a user's IP address (like 18.104.22.168) as input. The service was announced, along with a developer portal, at the Business of APIs conference in San Francisco.
