Roll-your-own API service Usergrid has been acquired by API management company Apigee. Usergrid could potentially help Apigee reach out to mobile developers increasingly finding themselves needing APIs to interact with their apps. It's part of a trend of developers not only being API consumers, but also API providers--at least privately to their own apps.
Nexmo and Three have partnered to make Nexmo's cloud-to-mobile services available across Three's mobile network in the United Kingdom. The deal gives Nexmo access to more devices and lets Three tout compatibility with more mobile apps.
