Single purpose API
Sorry, No followers
Message Systems has just launched SparkPost, an email infrastructure-as-a-service platform that features a suite of SMTP and REST APIs.
Despite all the claims over the years that email is going to go away, it comes as no surprise that email is still and will be the dominant ways that we communicate with each other. People complain that they are not being productive because they end up spending way too much time inside their email application. But what if we turn this equation on its head and instead say that you could actually be more productive while using your email application. PowerInbox strongly believes that and gives developers the tools to accomplish this through its platform and the PowerInbox API.
DokDok, a Montreal-based startup, has had an email attachment management application on Google Apps some time. To make this work, it made an API to use internally that intelligently uses email accounts as if they were datastores. Recently, the company announced that this API would be renamed Context.IO and available to all.
