Single purpose API
Sorry, No followers
In a first for US mobile carriers, Sprint has opened up an initial set of REST services for developers to play with for free at their new developer sandbox. With these services (Sprint API profile), developers can now access location, simple presence, and send SMS messages to Sprint handsets without requiring any software installed to the device.
EE, the UK's most advanced digital communications company, will host its 4G UK Hackathon June 22-23. EE recently announced its API partners whose APIs will be used at the hackathon. The event will feature LinkedIn, Pusher, Peerindex, and Wikitude APIs, and each company will provide representatives for assistance regarding respective APIs. The event will focus on developing apps that take advantage of 4G LTE network speeds.
