Earlier this year, we reported the first 3 winners of the Twilio Startup Fund, which aims to invest $250K in start-ups that use Twilio, the popular Telephony platform. The next set of 6 recipients of the Twilio Fund have been announced. The applications range from an innovative crowd-sourced labor platform to helping out law enforcement agencies.
Smartphones will continue to play a bigger role in our lives. The results of a recent study by research firm Mind Commerce confirms this. According to the report, the telecom networks API industry will grow 38% and account for $157 billion in global revenue by 2018.
The changes to the Twitter API continue to upset, confuse and frustrate developers. The latest feature of the Twilio Voice API allows anyone to make complete call queues and the Twilio team is sharing some code for creating a metrics dashboard. Plus: hackathon winners, DoubleClick API updates and 24 new APIs.
