Single purpose API
Sorry, No followers
One of the more frustrating things about using business applications is they invariably impose some form of workflow that is baked into software. Vendors have long argued that these workflows are essentially amalgamations of best practices that the vendor has painstakingly aggregated while researching and developing the application.
For large companies who require the constant transfer of files and private information, the need for a system that can store, organise and share files quickly and efficiently is paramount; and even more so, the need for that system to be safe and secure. Onehub is a file sharing application that puts security and a high level of control over file sharing at the forefront, making it an attractive solution for companies who need to share sensitive business information. Onehub also provides the Onehub API that enables developers to access this data on behalf of a client.
The 600 million numbers that Truecaller has in its directory have been collected via crowd-sourcing. Truecaller’s users can share their contacts and in return they get access to search in the collaborative database. Thanks to this collaborative data solution, the directory is growing and being updated continuously. It also contains numbers that no other directories have, e.g. pre-paid phones.
