Instant API Logo

Instant API is a true API-as-a-Service which makes it easy and cost-effective to build an API. Instant API has simplified all of the key areas of an API’s lifecycle, covering API creation, hosting, management, discovery, monetization, and documentation.

For example, let’s say you have information and services or data and services you want to expose through an API that can be used internally for BYOD initiatives or externally by developers or your business partners. With the API deployed, you still don’t have a mobile app. That’s where the Appery.io platform comes in. Appery.io makes it very easy to build mobile apps with any API. Combine the Instant API exposed APIs with the Appery.io cloud-based development platform, and you get a fast way to build a complete solution and deploy the mobile app.

In this post, we are going to show you an example of how to do that, but first here’s the info for an upcoming webinar in which Appery.io and Instant API will demo this process in action. Read the rest of this entry »

Appery.io provides a convenient way to work with Google Maps for mobile apps – a Google Map component with a set of configurable properties and a preinstalled marker.
