The Swipp API allows developers to integrate Swipp's "Social Intelligence" into their sites and applications. Public information is not available on the API; interested parties are asked to email email@example.com. Once available the APIs will "make it possible for people to interact around any topic imaginable."
Every day Foursquare users create millions of check-ins using the location-sharing platform. Those may be only a small fraction of the traffic seen by its API, which we've estimated receives at least 5 billion requests per month. The company continues to expand the local data made available via its API, so developers of all sorts are finding it a rich resource for building their apps.
