With the Betfair Ruby SDK by Luke Byrne, users can create betting robots to gamble online. It allows to generate several betting and trading scenarios using a bot file that contains all the logic. To run the bot, developers can create a daemon file with username, password, exchange_id, countries_array, and amount to bet. More than one bot can run using the same bot file. To be more informed, the API provides the features of market information, current bet details, and account statements.
At the The Next Web Hackathon in Amsterdam, developers played with a lot of new APIs. One that caught our attention is the Gbanga Puppetmaster API. Gbanga is a location-aware gaming platform, intended for use with games where walking around within the real world matter. It's released one game, Gbanga Famiglia, a mobile phone-based app using a theme of mafia families taking over areas and finding loot. Much more exciting, however, is its API, which allows for quests within Famiglia, and other, separate location-based games.
TiKL, maker of mobile apps Talkray and Touch to Talk, has announced the Talkray API that allows developers to integrate Talkray functionality with third party apps and platforms. The Talkray API enables one on one or group chat, group calls, push notifications, file transfer, and more in a cloud based platform. Although the API can integrate with a wide variety of apps, TiKL expects the largest group of adopters to come from the gaming industry. Accordingly, the API was announced at this year's Game Developers Conference.
