It’s been a long year since Yahoo's major search API changes. One of its popular offerings, the Yahoo BOSS API, was marked for transition to a paid service after integrating search results from Microsoft Bing. In April of this year, Yahoo BOSS V2 was released with pricing details, OAuth support and optional Advertising. Users have reacted positively to the changes and Yahoo has responded back with updates to BOSS V2 and a very short timeline to upgrade apps from V1.
eHive, online collection management system, grants access to its web-based organization system via the eHive API. Museums can integrate the API with third party applications, or developers can build mobile and custom apps that leverage eHive technology. eHive allows museums and curators to gather, share, and manage collections of all flavors and sizes directly through a web interface. API integration enables eHive users to gain traction through mobile, social, and existing networks.
