Single purpose API
How do you attract developers to the world's first grocery API? How about by promising it won't go away any time soon? That's what Tesco's Nick Lansley has done in his recap of their first developer conference.
The company that launched the world's first grocery API now has a new mobile app, built upon its own platform. Anyone with a Tesco account and a Nokia phone can now add rhubarb and salad to their virtual cart while out and about. Like the API itself, the app gives us a glimpse of how we might all shop in the future, even if the future is just next year.
We've added 6 APIs to ProgrammableWeb today in Recognition and Mapping categories, among others. Client libraries for Bit.ly and Groupon have also been added to the directory.
