Google API Applications

There are a lot of applications that have been made based off of Google's Web APIs service. You can also download your own Google Web APIs Developer's Kit here.

Here's a few nice applications that have been made.
  • Gvisit - Track visitors to your website using Google Maps

  • Blogflux MapStats - Visitor Statistics with Google Maps to display latest visitors

  • PervWatch - browsable database of sex offender data with Google maps
This site aims to make it easy for anyone to quickly find sex offenders in a graphical way. Many of the state registries fulfill the purpose of making the data freely accessible, however it can be difficult and time-consuming to determine just how many live near you, and how close they are. This site plots the sex offenders on a map so you can instantly see how many and where they are.
Now Listing data for the following states: California, Florida, New York, Texas

  • Googlematic - Google through AOL IM or MSN Messenger

  • CapeSpeller 1.0

  • Capemail - Asynchronous Google Access or Google by Email
CapeMail is an e-mail search application that allows you to send an e-mail to with the text of your query in the subject line and get the first ten results for that query back. Maybe it's not something you'd do every day, but if your cell phone does e-mail and doesn't do Web browsing, this is a very handy address to know.
  • GARBO - Google API Relation Browser Outliner
You enter a URL and choose whether you want pages that related to the URL or linked to the URL. Click on the triangle next to an URL to get a list of pages linked or related to that particular URL.
  • GAWSH - Google API Search by Host
The Google API Web Search by Host (GAWSH) lists the Web hosts of the results for a given query. When you click on the triangle next to each host, you get a list of results for that host.

Well, that's it for today. GoogleDude's out of here! :)
