Using freely available APIs (Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) your students can get content and data from across the web and use it in their own apps.
This could be music, images, geographical data, social data, or many other pieces of exciting content to bring their app ideas to life.
ProgrammableWeb is a website containing up-to-date examples of new APIs and Mashups. A mashup is when two or more APIs are brought together to create a new app or service. There is also a large directory of APIs to search through.
