Have you noticed the word API before? If yes, then it’s all good. But if its no, then let us walk you through this mind-blowing concept of the tech world.
Imagine a situation: You need to get to other applications’ information into your system. For instance, maybe you need to get contents related to all Facebook posts that consist of hashtag #FunMoments. The logical step here would to email Facebook and request for a spreadsheet of all these posts. Thereafter, you will have to find a methodology to import that spreadsheet into your application or platform or system. This process looks simple but could be a very herculean task to deal with. Also, it would not be possible to update it every now and then. Instead, the easiest way is that Facebook provides a way to query their application to get access to that database and view it into your own application. Here is where API can come into the picture. An API allows access to a different application (like Accura Scan) to deliver functionalities in your system.
