Its been some time since Google+ has launched ( test running actually ) and after the initial incredible success Google have now unveiled the API access for developers, through which developers can build incredible applications for Google plus.
Launching the Api Google+ on there blog said ” That’s just the beginning though — we want every one of you who builds applications to be able to include rich sharing, identity, and conversations in your app. Today, we’re taking the next step on that journey by launching the first of the Google+ APIs.”
Google+ gives users full control over their information, supporting everything from intimate conversations with family to public showcases and debates. This initial API release is focused on public data only — it lets you read information that people have shared publicly on Google+.
Developers need to note that there is not much APIs in this release, as the current release only allows querying of a single person’s activity or action on Google+. So third-party apps can be developed to simply display what’s going on Google+, but not let users post to Google+. The app approval procedure is also made simple, as they only request to know who the developer is on Google.
You can find more information about the Google+ platform, including APIs to public data, at developers.google.com/+ on the new Google Developers site. This site will help developers, and will provide tools that make development on the +Platform easier and more fun.
As this only an initial release, more releases of Google+ APIs are sure to come and we except it to be awesome. So do try using the API to build apps for Google+ and do share your experience using it.
