Google has just announced that the company is looking for developers interested in building applications for Google Drive. A small group of developers will be selected by Google to participate in the Google Drive SDK early access program and will be given access to Google Drive API features currently in development (pre-release phase).
If you're a developer hosting your apps on MediaTemple, then you'll want to get into the beta of the new MediaTemple API. Though you need to apply to get access, the company has provided quite a bit of information to drool over while you await for your API application to be approved.
Twilio has really upped the ante with the release of its new iOS SDK for developing voice over IP applications. This means that any iOS App can quite easily add telephony via the Twilio API to its product. By providing an SDK for iOS, Twilio (a ProgrammableWeb sponsor) has lowered the bar for developers wanting to build VOIP applications. It only makes sense for a company that is a pure-play in the API business to do everything possible to encourage adoption among developers, and this release is another is a series of smart moves by Twilo. I expect that this will have a big impact developer adoption and would love to check back in with Twilio to hear how the project goes over the next couple months.
