Move Over, Twilio: AT&T Integrates Speech, Messaging And Payment APIs Into Appcelerator’s Developer Platform
In the rush among carriers to be more than a dumb pipe, AT&T today became the latest to offer APIs to developers, in a bid to drive more revenue from its mobile network: it is partnering with mobile app developer platform Appcelerator to offer APIs for speech, mobile messaging and mobile payment services into their apps. This is the first time that a carrier has partnered with Appcelerator, whose Appcelerator Titanium platform is used by 350,000 developers, but there are likely to be more. TechCrunch has heard that Deutsche Telekom is among those that are in talks with the company.
