Single purpose API
Samsung is preparing a brand-new SDK for its Gear line of smartwatches — a clear, concerted pitch to developers in the hope of scaring up better apps for its wearables.
Recently, Microsoft discontinued the Microsoft Band SDK, and removed Microsoft Band from its online store. "Band" (as the fitness band was known) was Microsoft's entry into the fitness wearables market. For those developing explicitly for Band, this is a rude awakening.
The smart cities agenda is transforming how cities manage their infrastructure and how they communicate with citizens and local businesses. Open data and the use of sensor technologies to provide real-time feedback on the use of urban infrastructure are two components at the center of what is considered a “smart city.” How are developers using public transport APIs to empower a smart cities agenda and what is the progress of city authorities looking to make their transportation systems smart? ProgrammableWeb surveys some of the latest advances and reviews city progress in opening transport data via API.
