The Buddy Platform iOS SDK by Buddy allows interaction with the API, providing guides to build request, authenticate, parse responses, and save credentials. Prerequisites include Xcode and iOS 6+. Developers can access with CocoaPods.
A year ago we asked who belongs to the API billionaires club and listed several APIs that can count their API requests in the billions. Now there are many more API billionaires serving billions of requests every month. There is also a class of eight companies that are serving in the billions every single day, as shown in ProgrammableWeb Founder John Musser's talk today at Glue.
APIs are now an integral part of any product offering. Developers have continuously pushed the envelope in terms of the features that they want from APIs and API companies have responded from time to time, paying attention to design, reducing the amount of response data and also using performance tuning tools for APIs. In the light of that, Google expanded a feature that it introduced a year back: partial responses and updates.
