Nextstop is a collaborative effort to organize a catalog of all the great places and experiences all around the globe. Nextstop's end goal is to enable people to find something great to get out and do wherever they are, and whatever they might be interested in doing..
As part of that effort, nextstop wants to make the content its members have contributed as broadly accessible as possible -- that means both on nextstop.com, but also through other websites and applications that could benefit from the original, authentic recommendations created using the nextstop tools.
Today, nextstop is launching the first version of the nextstop API which can be used to search for relevant content in the nextstop database, or retrieve detailed information about a particular place or guide.
Highlights of nextstop's API Include:
Sample Applications of the nextstop API:
"As part of our mission to document all the great places and experiences around the world, we want to make sure that the content collected by nextstop contributors becomes as accessible as possible," said Carl Sjogreen, co-founder of nextstop. "To that end, we're providing the first version of our API to access the content available on nextstop and are excited to see what people do with it."
Based in San Francisco, California and founded in 2008 by a group of active travelers frustrated with the existing solutions for finding new things to do, nextstop's mission is to make it easy and fun to discover new and authentic experiences wherever you are in the world. Whether you're interested in great food, art, outdoor activities, or things to do with kids, nextstop helps connect you with people all over the world with similar tastes and the places and activities that they love most. With experience building and launching successful consumer products like Google Calendar and Picasa Web Albums, the founding team is excited to bring their understanding of communities and easy-to-use web products to this space.
