AOL Launches Open API for Xdrive
AOL today announced the availability of Open Xdrive (available at dev.aol.com), a free, publicly available API that allows developers to create rich media management and sharing experiences for their Website users. With Open Xdrive, consumers can upload, organize, and share all file types - photos, videos, music, and documents - from any Website. All files are stored to and accessed from the consumer's personal Xdrive online storage account.
“Rich media management and online storage increases engagement. Giving consumers the ability to share their media assets help Website owners build awareness and increase their audience,” said David Liu, Senior Vice President of AOL Portals. “By utilizing each consumer’s complimentary 5GB Xdrive account, a Website owner can benefit from these capabilities without incurring the usual infrastructure, operations, and development costs.”
Xdrive®, a free service available to all Web users at Xdrive.com, manages an online storage platform that provides consumers with 5GB of free storage without limiting file size or bandwidth consumption. Upgrades to 50GB accounts are available for $9.95 per month.
