Singly is a data management service. They provide APIs for developers building apps that require personal and social data. The API exposes data aggregation functionality for retrieving usersâ€™ information from personal and social media sources. This allows developers to integrate multiple third-party data accession functionality in their apps. The API is RESTful and returns JSON-encoded data.
Mobile platform Appcelerator has just acquired API integration management service, Singly, for an undisclosed amount in a move that is expected to turn heads and raise eyebrows in the mobile enterprise application sector.
Singly has announced the open beta of its app connection platform. The platform consists of two main components (i.e. the App Fabric SDK and the Data Fabric infrastructure). The App Fabric simplifies social data sharing and shortens time to enable functionality such as friend finding and login across multiple apps. The Data Fabric allows developers to integrate features like synching, data querying, intelligent indexing, instant push, archiving, and more.
When it comes to interacting with the over800 social APIs, it's not just about your friend's data. It's also about your own data. The Personal Data Revolution is about making that data available to you, which is where the APIs come in.
