MyDoorHandle allows users to create short, memorable weblinks that point to physical locations: DoorHandles. Instead of sharing physical addresses (which easily become outdated or incomplete), DoorHandles create a digital address which are easy to create and continually ensure accuracy. MyDoorHandle has now expanded its offering to include API access to DoorHandle creation. The API will allow third party developers to incorporate MyDoorHandle's many location based services.
Microsoft has just released a new Silverlight version of Bing Maps that is full of new features and upgrades. Although it's hard to say whether this release of Bing Maps has "stolen the cool crown" from Google, the new features do provide some additional value for users. The "beta" release is not yet available by default, though you can preview the latest version at: http://www.bing.com/maps/explore.
ProgrammableWeb first covered Point.io last year when the Point.io API was released. The original API gave mobile apps access to data from multiple cloud storage providers. Point.io has expanded its single point of access approach with the release of APIdoc. APIdoc provides a single API that grants any application access to data that resides in a public cloud, private cloud, behind a firewall, or elsewhere. While providing seamless access to multiple data repositories, APIdoc ensures security for compliance and auditing purposes.
