API stands for "application programming interface." APIs facilitate interaction between different software programs by making it easy for them to share data and resources.
The Foursquare API enables developers to build applications that interact with the Foursquare platform. You can use the API to create new ways to check-in to Foursquare or visualize the data generated by the Foursquare community.
