If you are as optimistic as we were about Twitter's location features, you should be downright giddy now. Twitter has acquired the company--and staff--behind one of the most innovative mapping-related APIs. Mixer Labs' GeoAPI , previously known as TownMe, hosts your geographic data and allows spatial queries such as "find the closest location" (for more see our earlier TownMe news coverage and our TownMe API profile).
At the The Next Web Hackathon in Amsterdam, developers played with a lot of new APIs. One that caught our attention is the Gbanga Puppetmaster API. Gbanga is a location-aware gaming platform, intended for use with games where walking around within the real world matter. It's released one game, Gbanga Famiglia, a mobile phone-based app using a theme of mafia families taking over areas and finding loot. Much more exciting, however, is its API, which allows for quests within Famiglia, and other, separate location-based games.
