Mashups using the same API (1102)
It's been a little over two weeks since the latest Facebook API euthanasia which saw the Face.com API shuttered.

Though not as full-featured as the Face.com API, Lambda's looks likely to stay online longer.
One of the most powerful aspects of mashups is taking similar data from competing websites and providing a single place to examine the content. In this round-up of the best new mashups we'll look at three apps that aggregate data from multiple services. One looks at location check-ins, another at shared photos and another mashes photos with information about where they were taken.
If you're looking to run a successful developer program, you should probably pay attention to Mathys van Abbe. He's the founder of Mobypicture (our Mobypicture API profile), which has just celebrated its 500th developer.
