API— Another Product Integration

There’s a lot to learn about and a lot to say about APIs, but here I’ll keep it simple.

Our Definition

An offering of the functionality of an app to developers outside an organization.

In this definition we focus on external products and services that we want to integrate into our apps (as opposed to us creating APIs to integrate with other products). We will be able to plug into other common services to enhance our user experience and develop faster.

Common APIs

Payments — Stripe, Braintree, Paypal

Authentication — Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram

Notifications — Twilio, Amazon SNS, MailChimp, SendGrid, Pusher

Google — Maps, Analytics, Translate, YouTube

Social — LinkedIn, Pinterest, Meetup, Vimeo, Quora

Development — Crashlytics, Amazon S3,

Other — Yelp, eBay, Dropbox, Slack, Spotify, IBM Watson, Salesforce
