Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I would be very much thankfull to hear some good use cases (=applications) that have been developed with the Stackoverflow API. It does not matter if this is a web application, an mobile phone app, or legacy integration in an existing product.

I am very much happy with what stackoverflow does and I am wondering if there are any good usecaes how to use the stackoverflow api (I have seen usecases but the are more or less only used for SEO and SERPS/Index Spamming in google).

Thanks very much!! Markus

Stack Apps is an official site where users post and discuss apps, libraries and scripts that use the Stack Exchange API. Most of the interesting uses will be posted there. You may want to start with the highest-voted applications on the site.

Personally, I find Mac application Newt very useful. It notifies me of new questions with tags I'm interested in, as well as messages in my global inbox.
