Google Playground

Google have come up with a Code Playground which should be great for web mashup enthusiasts wanting to try out Google's selection of APIs. It's like a little sandbox where you can get your hands dirty testing what can be achieved!

Google Gadgets API

The little boxes on your Google homepage (also know as your "iGoogle" page) are called Google Gadgets. The documentation for the API is pretty good and we've made a few gadgets of our own!


Twitter Watch

This mashup is based on the addictive messaging medium that is Twitter. Twitter's API allows users to get hold of the latest tweets and Twitter Watch displays these as a constant stream, updating your screen every few seconds with a new tweet. (May contain foul language.)

UPDATE: Because not all tweets are in English, we've improved this mashup so that tweets can be translated into any one of a fairly large selection of languages. This is possible thanks to the Google AJAX Language API.
