amazon api
Amazon API
  • Extensive
  • AWS SOAP is dirty, has issues and the outstanding Flex Builder WSDL importer chokes on it. Namespace related
  • So I used Object as a resultFormat instead of e4x

  • http://aws.amazon.com/resources/
  • REST based is around too
lyricsfly com

  • Result is XML based
  • Actual lyrics are [BR] seperated
