API Review - Scribd

I have been reviewing a lot of APIs lately. I"m evaluating their potential for integration into applications.

As I'm going through I"m also evaluating how they deliver their API community.

I was checking out the Scribd API tonight, and I like their delivery. Its pretty straightforward.

It has the following API building blocks: They make it easy to sign up for an API account by providing links in navigation and on home page.

They provide client libraries in these programming language: They just make it easy to get up and going by providing the necessary information and tools.

Its a good example to follow when deploying an API.
