CheckInOn.Me is a “proactive automated personal safety system” that allows developers to create customized services that provide peace of mind to users. The CheckInOn.Me API grants developers access to a system that checks in on users and waits for a custom response to verify their safety.
GoodGuide is a service that we have been using as a family for a while. It attempts to analyze a product holistically to produce a simple 1 to 10 rating of its 'goodness.' I am personally satisfied to see that the GoodGuide API will share this data with the world. Many consumers would love to choose products based on their total “goodness” but how can you possibly investigate all the companies and products that are out there?
