Payleven, the Square equivalent for the world outside of the US, has launched an API to complement its mobile payment device. Prior to the API, use of Payleven's mobile payment device required downloading the Payleven app (similar to Square's current model). However, the API allows developers to integrate Payleven's functionality within third party apps.
Mobile apps search engine Mimvi has announced a partnership with API marketplace Mashape that will allow the Mimvi API to be marketed, monetized, and distributed through Mashape's marketplace. Mimvi aims to put its world-class tools in the hands of developers across the globe and empower users to better serve consumer needs.
