Dear beloved developers, The last weeks have been pretty exciting for Moby. But first a thank you! Thank you for taking the time to use Moby for making your apps and sites more social.

In the past few days we’ve added some missing actions: getUserMedia getFollowers removeFriend isFriend Until today it was possible to add friends, but not remove them, or check the relation between two users. Retrieving a user’s media had to be done via the searchAPI. Not a bad thing, but our searchAPI is not as scalable […]

Raffi Krikorian (@raffi) states on the Google group: we want to make sure that you all have calm waters to test your new codebases where you’re not dealing […]

Behind the scenes we’re working hard at a completely new version of Mobypicture. Not only the site gets a revamp, we also renew our API’s and developer center. New API Our current API is online since the beginning of Mobypicture and is missing some new features. API 2.0 makes a fresh start. Not only will […]
