If you see an app today working seamlessly, it is only because of the efficient APIs that have been used in its development. While APIs may seem like something alien for a layman, they are the essential blocks of functionality within every app. APIs are the pieces of code that link the backend with the frontend. REST API stands for Representing State Transfer Application Programming Interface. They are responsible for ensuring your app functions correctly. Most expert developers understand that creating a perfect API is imperative for any application. Without an efficient API, your application might become too heavy to function properly. However, with the right API, your app will perform better than ever before. Furthermore, when you want to recall a value from an external application, it is often advised to use third-party APIs. These APIs connect your project seamlessly with the external one and create a bridge where data is transferred when needed. However, third-party APIs are often restricted in terms of which data can be recalled. For example, when you integrate the Map API from Google to detail your location on your website, the API will only showcase the coordinates you have given, restricting you from using any more functions from Google (unless another API for those functions is integrated.
The Key features of Rest API Integration
An API enables your app to function to its maximum potential. There are a few basic features that are always essential to any API.
Search string length control
Search string sorting
Support from JSON
Authorization and authentication

GODELM – Why you should opt for Rest API Integration from us?
When it comes to using the right APIs, our developers always begin by noting the key objective behind integrating an API. This means realizing the true meaning behind any and every function. Instead of using third-party APIs and modifying them to suit our needs, GODELM insists on creating internal APIs from scratch to ensure that you get exceptional efficiency in every function. This is why when it comes to using internal APIs, we recommend you go for either REST or GraphQL. This ensures that your project is as customized to your preferences as possible, allowing you the maximum benefit with every piece of written code.
However, simply integrating APIs and seeing them work the first time is never enough for us. Instead, we strive to test them as thoroughly as possible to make sure the margin of errors is minimized you are bound to experience excellence in functionality.
