Single purpose API
Sorry, No followers
There have been a lot of new socially based mashups showing up recently. In fact, we recently topped 700 social mashups. While many of these use the Facebook API or Twitter API, there are many more social APIs. The mashups below run the gamut, though, yes, also include Facebook.
The Music Apps Hack Weekend held February 25-26 at New York City's SPiN Ping Pong Club invited developers to build music apps powered by the Spotify API. The event was organized by OMD and saw representatives from McDonalds, Mountain Dew, Doritos, State Farm and others actively engage in seeing how developers could possibly drive consumer engagement via music apps.
For music enthusiasts who thrive on insider knowledge and detailed music conversation, WhoSampled would be just their cup of tea. It's basically an online community for discovering and discussing sampled music, remixes and cover songs. WhoSampled has partnered with The Echo Nest to provide the WhoSampled API that allows developers to access and integrate its functionality with other applications.
