ProgrammableWeb first covered Point.io last year when the Point.io API was released. The original API gave mobile apps access to data from multiple cloud storage providers. Point.io has expanded its single point of access approach with the release of APIdoc. APIdoc provides a single API that grants any application access to data that resides in a public cloud, private cloud, behind a firewall, or elsewhere. While providing seamless access to multiple data repositories, APIdoc ensures security for compliance and auditing purposes.
Amazon made several significant new features available to its AWS Mobile Hub this month that should make it easier for developers to tap into cloud-based APIs. The tools include a Cloud Logic function, user sign-in tweaks, user management options, and seamless SaaS integration.
