API Spotlight: Urbanesia, Brightidea and Fanatix

Of the many APIs we published this week, three were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those three, which included the Urbanesia API. We wrote that Urbanesia, the leading Indonesian lifestyle directory, had released an API that enables third-party developers to incorporate Urbanesia’s location data into apps. The article continues, "Although the API is targeted for a focused geography (Indonesia), opening location data to third-party developers should open up opportunities that would not arise without offering an open API."
