In simple words , we can say an API is family member of corresponding application that is being used to make connection with other application for any kind of data exchanging purpose . In order words we can say API is that portion of application code that is easily to be integrated with other application for the purpose of data exchange . API is always known to be playing the role of intermediary as it always tend to transfer data , and also aids in opening lines of communication that wouldn’t exist otherwise .

Know The Technology
In spite of you have hired a technology partner for API implementation , it is always proven beneficial to know the technologies you’re exploring . When it comes to APIs , it has varieties of variation such as different shape and sizes , some API are available free of cost , some are open source and some are regulated to .
If we are considering internet as a complex web or remote server , and you are willing to push the data from any application in such a way that user request is fulfilled , API is the only solution that can even guide server how to respond as and when request has been placed .
For instance we have two application , namely a CRM software application and mobile application in support of CRM software for ease of commencing of employees . Now if mobile application wants to access the database of the CRM software to showcase to their interface , API is the only way out to showcase the same . APIs are being used everywhere , whenever we use PayPal , or at the time when we log in to different sites via social media , it’s through an API . They are the only convenience layer.
Know The Trends
Whenever we are using API , there is always some liability attached with it . Both parties are allowing some controls over their system and API owners is opening up their brand to level of dissonance . Whenever we are implementing API in some other application , the owner is allowing some part of their application to be accessed . Note the owner is allowing that means they also have the complete right to disallow or change the use of API as and when they want . It is just like renting an apartment and landlord decides to renovate .
So it is always proven beneficial to be on the top of these trends in order to get the most benefit of API .
Know Your Target Market
It is important to get the API to get the data and it is equally important to find data relevancy of API in response to your target market . So in order to get the best out of it , you must first define your user and outline how your user will interact with new connection .
You should always focus on the overall experience of the user , and the solution of the most common question – Is it overall experience or a hinderance for user ?
If you are resining at US , you must have used Yelp , which is a classified site to showcase the business nearby . Whenever any person request for something from their web browser on yelp website , Yelp uses google maps API in their backend to show the location of business of whatever business the user might be searching on their website . At the same time Yelp for iOS users uses Apple maps API in place of google maps .
