PRESS RELEASE: TweetPhoto Introduces API Libraries, Facebook Connect and Twitter OAuth Support
Don’t be fooled by the name, TweetPhoto releases API support for Facebook Connect and Twitter OAuth, followed by the introduction of native client libraries to speed up third-party application development.
02.16.2010 – San Diego, CA – TweetPhoto today announced a major milestone to its real-time photo sharing API, the introduction of client libraries for Java, Objective-C and .Net in addition to supporting authentication using Facebook Connect and Twitter OAuth. These releases help developers from two of the world’s largest social networks get up and running quickly with the company’s real-time photo sharing API service while further safe guarding user login credentials. Last month TweetPhoto announced the support of Foursquare authentication through its API.
“We want to make it easier to integrate a photo-sharing service into a third-party application,” according to Sean Callahan, Co-Founder of TweetPhoto. “Now Android, Blackberry and iPhone developers on the Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare platform can effortlessly take advantage of photo uploading functionality, commenting, favoriting, voting, searching, social feeds, and much more.”
The client libraries for Java, Objective-C and .Net are the traditional set of native drop-in classes that will speed up development and enable developers to focus solely on building exciting new photo sharing experiences within their Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare applications.
On top of supporting Facebook Connect and Twitter OAuth authentication in the TweetPhoto API, the company has released a new optional ‘link account’ function for developers to tie users’ social networking accounts together from within their third-party applications. This will let users publish photos to one place from any third-party application and have them instantly shared to their accounts on Twitter, Facebook or Foursquare.
TweetPhoto has not only recently invested heavily in further advancing its photo sharing technology, but also improving API performance by switching to a service-oriented architecture and through upgrading to more powerful hardware.
“We want to put the most robust, feature-rich photo sharing platform in the hands of developers so that they can take their applications to new heights,” said Sean Callahan.
