Facebook iOS SDK engages users in social applications. With this SDK, users can share messages from an app to Facebook, they can reach a target audience using the right ads, and increase visibility when a consumer is redirected to the AppleApp store. Some examples of applications developed with this SDK include Friend Smash and Swag Shop.
Maestro.Fm wants to take your music experience to cloud nine, maybe even ten. Actually that could be a little overstated, but at least they are going to use cloud computing to do it. With a functionality similar to Google Music, a little application runs on your PC and uploads all your music to Maestro. Once it’s there, it’s augumented with album art, lyrics, and other lovely decorations. It’s kind of like a music library makeover. Google already has a thick collection of API services. Will they be interested in opening Google Music up for developer access? Don't wait around and wonder, the Maestfo.fm API is already here.
The existence of APIs has made it possible for organizations to collect and aggregate unprecedented amounts of customer data. What’s not so clear is how to actually go about harnessing it. That issue is giving rise to a host of customer intelligence applications that leverage APIs to ingest data and then, in turn, make analysis of that data available via an external API.
