CityGrid Media, the company behind local mainstay CitySearch, has announced a new version of its CityGrid API. The service offers developers new access to content, as well as new ways to monetize whatever integrations they might build. The new API provides features now synonymous with local services, such as business listings and coupons. And CityGrid is sharing revenues with developers.
Mobile app development is exploding, and the opportunity for mobile developers couldn't be better. Just like with social and cloud computing, APIs are at the heart of mobile growth, and opening up entirely new ways for developers to make money beyond just hourly project work.
