One of the big focuses of this blog (and the team behind it) has been providing compelling examples of how integration with Google Apps APIs can make a product richer and more engaging. As a part of this effort, earlier today we announced Au-to-do, a sample application built using Google APIs.
Au-to-do is a sample implementation of a ticket tracker, built using a combination of Google App Engine, Google Cloud Storage, and Google Prediction APIs.
In addition to providing a demonstration of the power of building on Google App Engine, Au-to-do also provides an example of improving the user experience by integrating with Google Apps. Users of Au-to-do can automatically have tasks created using the Google Tasks API whenever they are assigned a ticket. These tasks have a deep link back to the ticket in Au-to-do. This helps users maintain a single todo list, using a tool that’s already part of the Google Apps workflow.
We’re going to continue work on Au-to-do, and provide additional integrations with Google Apps (and other Google APIs) in the following months.
