StockTwits, a financial communications platform for the financial and investing community, has announced major enhancements to its API offering. The original release of the StockTwits API allowed third party apps to access the StockTwits social graph, integrate watch lists, share messages, and access charts directly from a third party application. With the new release, messages now include charts, videos, and user stats/sentiment. Additionally, community contributed data now links back to the site/app from where the contribution originated.
The Geonotes app is built on the Geoloqi API and is an extension of the Geoloqi demo app, taking advantage of the battery and accuracy improvements in the new SDK (software development kit). The app also provides users with access to free geo layers that the folks at Geoloqi spend their time making.
