Eight APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Beer, Real Estate and Auto. Highlights include an API that returns data about used cars for resellers, and an API for open data about COVID-19 cases in Canada. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
In January, OnStar announced an API would allow third party developers to integrate their applications with OnStar's platform. Last week, General Motors announced its first partner for API integration: RelayRides. RelayRides is "[t]he world's largest peer to peer carsharing marketplace." The partnership with GM allows OnStar users to leave their keys in their cars when renting a car to a fellow RelayRider. The renter can then unlock the car with a smartphone app or by responding to a text message.
