It's time to start shopping around for another API to search for deals, prices and reviews. That it, if you use the Yahoo Shopping API (our Yahoo Shopping API profile). On March 11 Yahoo's service will be discontinued, replaced by a "strategic partnership" that will leave developers sniffing for deals elsewhere.
The company that launched the world's first grocery API now has a new mobile app, built upon its own platform. Anyone with a Tesco account and a Nokia phone can now add rhubarb and salad to their virtual cart while out and about. Like the API itself, the app gives us a glimpse of how we might all shop in the future, even if the future is just next year.
While the market seems obsessed with Groupon, other leading deal aggregators are working their way to impressive number of deals offered, subscribers, developer mindshare and big partnerships. Dealmap, the coupon aggregator, has just announced a big partnership deal with Microsoft Bing, where its Dealmap API will be used to publish local and daily deal content to consumers via Bing on the web and mobile Bing offerings.
