Hello and welcome to challenge #16

It's all APInning

API:
An abbreviation of application program interface, is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications.

Today's challenge is all about API's and how we can use them to make great apps.

Your challenge for today is to find a site/services API and use it to create a desktop application based on the features the API has available, just it's basic functions will do for this challenge.

Example, Twitter has an API so if you were to choose to work with that then the basic functions would be getting a twitting feed and posting tweets.

Google has API's to use Youtube, Maps etc.
Dropbox, Pastebin, Facebook are a few examples but you can choose any site or service API to use for the challenge, apart from the Codenstuff API :P

Rules for this challenge:
Choose a site or service API and use it to create a basic desktop application.
You can not use the Codenstuff API.


Post your completed app when you're finished.

Get coding cooll;
