With so many TV shows and movies available online these days, it can be hard for viewers to find exactly what they are looking for. To make life easier for television watchers, Guidebox, a service that answers the question, “Where can I stream or purchase this?,” released a free API that lets developers integrate movie and TV episode search into websites and mobile apps.
Video conferencing is one of those killer applications that a lot of people get initially excited about, but wind up seldom using. The reason for this ranges from everything from a lack of interoperability standards to the fact that setting up an appointment to walking down the hall to a another room to use a video conferencing system is more trouble than it’s worth, especially when the setting up of that video conferencing session usually requires an administrator or someone from IT to actually set up.
Social movie review web site FilmCrave recently released a new API (our FilmCrave API Profile) that provides developers with access to various types of content, including member movie reviews, movie plots, and movie ratings. Originally developed as an API for use by one of its business partners, FilmCrave decided to make the API publicly available in order to encourage third parties to integrate FilmCrave's content with other web sites.
