Need to make sure your cloud is up and running? If you like pretty charts of that uptime, Nimsoft has got you covered. The company also has a not quite as pretty Nimsoft Cloud Monitor API that allows developers to integrate the tools for monitoring cloud performance into their applications.
Our API directory now includes 54 data APIs. The newest is the PicketReport Lifestyle API. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the RapLeaf API. We list 6 RapLeaf mashups. Below you'll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of data APIs.
Twitter recently added more data to each tweet it returns via the API. Now your applications can access the number of retweets, whether you have retweeted a tweet and additional information about the user who wrote the tweet. The new information used to require subsequent calls to the Twitter API, or perhaps looking up a cached value from your own database.
