API Development

APIs are one of the key tools that we use to create bespoke digital solutions


An API (Application Programming Interface) is a set of rules and conventions for building and interacting with web services.

It allows different software applications to communicate with each other using standard methods like GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, and more.

Essentially, it’s the bridge between your application and the vast world of the internet.

Why are they important for modern web and app development?

In the interconnected world of today, the ability to fetch, send, and manipulate data between different applications and platforms is crucial. REST APIs provide:

  • Interoperability: Seamless integration between platforms irrespective of the underlying technologies.
  • Flexibility: You can develop applications in any language or platform and still connect them.
  • Efficiency: Reduced development time as developers can utilize pre-built services.

The Benefits Of Using An API

Integrating an API can help you to save time and improve efficiency by delivering information directly to the end-user.

There are an infinite number of possibilities when it comes to using API’s, they can be adapted for a lot of different uses.

One of the most common examples of an API being used is weather information, something most of us do pretty regularly (especially if you’re based in the UK!). Many websites and devices offer weather data but they source the actual information from another party, using an API. The weather data is sent from a third party source and it is then reformatted for that specific channel/brand.

Who develops APIs?

Expert developers, like our seasoned team at Filter, design, build, and maintain REST and Graph APIs. They ensure that the API is fast, reliable, and meets the specific needs of businesses and their end-users.

Do they come with support?

A well-developed API comes with comprehensive documentation, detailing its functionality, endpoints, and use cases. At Filter, we offer ongoing support to ensure your integrations remain seamless and efficient.

How can you use APIs to integrate apps?

APIs act as a middleman. If you have a web-based store and a mobile app the API ensures that when a customer places an order through the app, it’s processed in the same way as if they used the website.

How does Filter use APIs?

Filter specialises in REST API development, ensuring that your digital solutions are interconnected, efficient, and future-proof. With years of experience, we’re your go-to agency for all things API.

We’ve empowered businesses by developing REST APIs that:
