Matthew David from TheAppBuilder.com is an intense individual. He has seen the opportunity lying in front of mobile application developers and I suspect that it’s keeping him up at night. No, its not tied to a single platform. The opportunity he sees is based on a trend that involves billions of mobile phone users around the globe. “There are 7 billion people on the planet, 4.5 billion of them have cell phones” David explained, “currently 5% are smartphones. By the end of 2012, we’ll see that number move to 20%.” That’s about 700 million new smartphones, for those of us counting along, that will be coming online this year. Let that number sink in for a moment. If you’re a bit skeptical, note that some projections put 2012 iPhone says at between 125 and 200 million, and that’s just one phone in the market.
Telephony platform Twilio has a long running developer contest, giving Netbooks and Twilio credit to the winners. Recently it had a special contest, in which the winners could meet with Union Square Ventures partners for lunch. The winner of the contest is Asthmapolis, a site that helps track, manage and research asthma.
Food-sharing mobile photo app Foodspotting had an API since day one. Of course, every mobile app has an API, at least if it needs to store or retrieve non-trivial data. Most of those interfaces stay hidden away, private APIs with only that single, internal audience. Foodspotting, on the other hand, signed Zagat as an early partner and now also has OpenTable, among others, using its Foodspotting API. The company is not exactly making it widely available for any developer, though the documentation is public, planting it in a vast grey area that's becoming increasingly common.
