Single purpose API
Sorry, No followers
The Indix API released today makes product information available in machine-readable format from the "world's most comprehensive product intelligence platform", Indix. ProgrammableWeb spoke with Shalendra Chhabra, Director of Marketing, on the eve of the API release.
The ability to clearly communicate goals, expectations, and ideas can make or break any business. Most companies have an internal messaging system of some sort that allows employees to communicate with one another and discuss day to day tasks in order to be as efficient as possible. Assuming that an employee chooses correctly who to message this system would be very effective. Tibbr, a developer of social networking platforms that are designed specifically for the workplace, has created a better way to communicate, share content, and manage projects. The Tibbr API allows developers to access and integrate the data and functionality of tibbr with other applications.
The API economy is only going to be as strong as the quality of the APIs that enable it. Unfortunately, not all APIs are created equal in terms of quality, which collectively tends to act like a drag on the API economy.
