I'vRead is a service for keeping track of what books you've read. Seems simple, but it can be rather useful for those of us obsessed with reading like myself. Its web site offers the service for free, and using it is already pretty simple. There isn't even another account to register for. All a user needs to do is add a specific tag, @ivread, to a Twitter post mentioning the book. It allows for some basic searches of the data on their website, but the I'vRead API is where the service really shines.

The BitTorrent Sync API is aimed at developers who desire to build apps and workflows that leverage BitTorrent Sync capabilities. Whether the app plays in social media, enterprise apps, communications, or otherwise; the API will enable decentralized syncing of data for increased privacy, security, efficiency, and less reliance on infrastructure.
