Dropbox has launched the DBX Platform, a suite of APIs and developer tools for building new capabilities on top of Dropbox. The company has also launched two new APIs; Metadata API and File Requests API. Both APIs are built on Dropbox API V2, the revamped API that replaces Dropbox API V1.
Online diagramming service Creately opened its Creately API to the public this month, and with some surprisingly innovative features. While providing obvious features to make its service available to outside developers, and several "above and beyond" features, such as easy embedding of diagrams, Creately has done something fairly unique: open up its own, web-based file format for other developers to use.
