The Temboo Android builds Android applications that connect to over 100 web-based resources and services (e.g. Facebook, Dropbox, US Census data) by standardizing how it interacts with APIs. The Android SDK allows developers to create applications that use Google's Geocoding API to retrieve the Latitude and Longitude for a specific address.
In February of this year Radar Labs, Inc., a provider of location data infrastructure, announced the private beta release of several new APIs that handle geocoding, search, and distance. These APIs are now being moved into general availability and are receiving more affordable pricing.
Fourteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Databases, Blockchain and Marketing. Also new to the directory is an API for the Open Science Framework, which allows programmatic access to open source scientific research. Here's a look at the new additions.
Google has launched Cloud Firestore a new, fully-managed NoSQL document database for building data-driven mobile and web apps at global scale. Key features include expressive querying, SDKs with offline data access, real-time data synchronization, and automatic, multi-region data replication.
