Here at ProgrammableWeb, we love using mashups and APIs to help make our lives better in many ways. Just as mashups can take multiple APIs and piece something new together, you can do that with multiple mashups. For example, let's say we're going to host a party. Well, we'd need music, food, other entertainment and a way to connect people together. The mashups listed below can help you with all of this.
First thing we need is some good music to set the mood. This is always best if we can get our friends involved too, so we might start sharing some playlists on ListnPlay.
Another thing every good party needs is some food. There are lots of good options for this. If you don't feel like cooking it yourself, Order Anywhere has you covered, with over 30,000 different places to order from.
Sometimes watching a great movie together is a great activity. If you have Netflix, you never really need to worry about rentals, but you might want a better way to search through movies. If so, look no further than The Web Intersect.
If you're planning this with a group of people, you'll want a good collaboration tool. If so, you might want to take a look at Planrrr:
APIs: SendGrid, SimpleGeo, SimpleGeo Places, Twilio. More at our Planrrr profile.
If logistics of where to meet are an issue, as they sometimes are with distant friends, it might be a little tough to figure out where to have this shindig. If you need some help with that, try out Rendezview:
Well, enjoy your party. I hope it was better and easier thanks to these new mashups.
