Singly has announced the open beta of its app connection platform. The platform consists of two main components (i.e. the App Fabric SDK and the Data Fabric infrastructure). The App Fabric simplifies social data sharing and shortens time to enable functionality such as friend finding and login across multiple apps. The Data Fabric allows developers to integrate features like synching, data querying, intelligent indexing, instant push, archiving, and more.
Fancy Hands, virtual assistant service, has launched an API: The Fancy Hands API. The API allows ordinary folks to build apps, add features to existing apps, and build businesses with the power of Fancy Hands' network of assistants. Fancy Hands envisions utilization of the API expanding well beyond the developer community.
