Photobucket has released an
API that allows external third-party developers to create applications
that include content and functions from the photo- and video-sharing Web site.
The popular service has had an API (application programmer interface) but it was
previously only available to a hand-selected group of developers. This should
nicely extend Photobucket's relevance.
Most of the photos and clips hosted by Photobucket are displayed in other
sites, like MySpace (which is a sister company of Photobucket owned by News
Corp.) and Facebook, and such will probably be the case with the applications
built using its API. The API will open up about 50 Photobucket functions,
including video uploading, obtaining metadata about an image, editing photos,
creating and accessing albums, and searching for content.
Are you feeling overwhelmed with the number of available API's?
