We have worked with quite a few APIs.The Web 2.0 concept is about leveraging what exists. These apis such as Cloud is the infrastructure , AWS is a Cloud provider Cloud front and Joyent are other recommended players in the cloud arena. TrustCommerce, Paypal help in collecting payment. Google maps helps you in displaying maps withing your application. Facebook and Twitter let the crowd take over and give you much needed traffic to enhance your PR and bring in footfalls for business. Feel the power! The above are just some examples. In the days to come we will be putting up some samples for the developers.
Some of them are as follows:
Web / Mobile
- Google Maps ( on Mobile and on Desktops)

The web has obviously grown beyond its old state, and some API’s still hold good. Its worth noting that the above APIs get a new lease of life when we bring in the mobile integration for internet enabled sites
The above apis or variants can be used for for mobile integration for payment twitter, facebook ,Google Maps etc. to make your mobile richer and better user experience. Some of our upcoming apps use these. Please watch our portfolio page to know more.
