Two weeks ago, we launched version 2 of the FriendFeed API in beta. Since then, we've watched how developers have been using the API and collected a lot of their feedback. We've implemented some changes, and now, we're ready to remove the beta label!
In addition to removing the beta label, we also added support for using OAuth in applications installed on a user's desktop or device. The way it works is similar to Google's ClientLogin for Installed Applications; read all about it in our API documentation.
During the beta period, a number of developers took advantage of the new API to develop nifty applications. Some of the ones we found most interesting include:
- f2p: A FriendFeed mobile interface built by Hiroshi Nakamura.
- FriendBoo: Post audio updates to your FriendFeed from your phone. Created by Paul Kinlan.
- FriendFoo: A real-time FriendFeed interface by YungSang.
- PHP and Java libraries built by Nikolai Kordulla and Sean Sullivan respectively.
