Last.fm is a music-listening service that provides recommendations based on user preferences. Rikki Tooley created an SDK in .NET language with the main goal to offer functionality beyond API bindings. This kit is supported in .NET Framework 4.5, Windows 8.0, Windows Phone 8.1, and Windows Phone Silverlight 8. A quickstart guide is available with installation, usage, dependency, and planned features. One of the future plans is to improve identification of poorly tagged tracks using audio fingerprints and the MusicBrainz API. Because music lovers can benefit from the improvement of this feature, Rikki Tooley invites other developers to join the conversation on https://gitter.im/inflatablefriends/lastfm
There is no doubt that recommendation services are crucial to both buyers and sellers, so it makes sense to add or enhance applications with recommendations services. Developers wishing to accomplish this task can check out this list of 10 popular Recommendations APIs from ProgrammableWeb.
Recent technology backed by machine learning is making it possible to recognize people and objects from images, videos, sounds, body parts, speech, phrases, characters, even typing. Developers can find over two-hundred APIs for Recognition on ProgrammableWeb. Here are some top choices.
Here at ProgrammableWeb, we love using mashups and APIs to help make our lives better in many ways. Just as mashups can take multiple APIs and piece something new together, you can do that with multiple mashups. For example, let's say we're going to host a party. Well, we'd need music, food, other entertainment and a way to connect people together. The mashups listed below can help you with all of this.
