Verizon Delivers Messaging, Location, Network APIs to Devs
Sep 21, 2010, 12:18 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Verizon Wireless today at its developer conference announced the availability of more than 20 different APIs (application programming interfaces) for its network and services. The messaging APIs will let developers access SMS/MMS tools and intertwine them with their own applications. This can lead to features such as product links or discount offerings. The location APIs will let developers further integrate handset location information into their own application offerings. There are two location APIs, a general one and a more specific one. (Verizon reminds users that they are required to opt into location-based services and won't be signed up automatically. THe network APIs will let developers gain access to certain network features. Verizon says that it has been testing the APIs for several months, and will begin distributing them to developers this week. The sum of these new tools should enable developers to create and deliver better, more feature-rich applications for end users.
