The first API that launches publicly with BBAuth support is Yahoo! Photos. Developers can now write application that have read/write access to Yahoo! data! Since it is BBAuth enabled, users can grant third-party applications permission to work with their images.
The Photos API supports broad search functionality, upload photos, tagging, modifying titles and descriptions and much more! Try it out today and let us know what you think.
You build great web applications. We have millions of users who store their data on Yahoo!. Browser-Based Authentication (BBAuth) makes it possible for your applications to use that data (with their permission).
BBAuth also offers a Single Sign-On (SSO) facility so that existing Yahoo! users can use your services without having to complete yet another registration process.
