There are many web apps out there, but getting by free and good ones is not that easy. That is why I am sharing some Useful Google Code Labs Products For People Who Develop Websites. In Google Code Labs, you’ll find developer products that are experimental but can become useful. Some of these will one day graduate out of labs, others may remain experimental or even be shut down. That’s what a lab is for. Read each entry in the list and see which tool suits your needs best.

You are welcome if you want to share more useful apps that our readers/viewers may like. Do you want to be the first one to know the latest happenings at  SmashingApps.com just subscribe to our rss feed and you can follow us on twitter as well.

Google Safe Browsing API

The Safe Browsing API is an experimental API that enables client applications to check URLs against Google’s constantly updated blacklists of suspected phishing and malware pages. Your client application can use the API to download an encrypted table for local, client-side lookups of URLs that you would like to check. If you use this, you can warn users before clicking on links that appear in your site when they lead to malware-infested pages and prevent users from posting links to phishing pages from your site.

Google URL Shortener API

The Google URL Shortener at goo.gl is a service that takes long URLs and squeezes them into fewer characters to make a link that is easier to share, tweet, or email to friends. The Google URL Shortener API allows you to develop applications that interface with this service. You can use simple HTTP methods to create, inspect, and manage goo.gl short URLs from your desktop, mobile, or web application.

reCAPTCHA

reCAPTCHA is a free CAPTCHA service that protects your site against spam, malicious registrations and other forms of attacks where computers try to disguise themselves as a human; a CAPTCHA is a Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Human Apart. reCAPTCHA comes in the form of a widget that you can easily add to your blog, forum, registration form, etc.

BigQuery

BigQuery is a web service that enables you to do interactive analysis of massively large datasets. Scalable and easy to use, BigQuery lets developers and businesses tap into powerful data analytics on demand.

Google Font API

The Google Font API helps you add any high quality web fonts to any web page available at Google Font Directory. Applying a font is easy: just add a special stylesheet link to your web page, then use the font in a CSS style and you are
done.

Google Sites API

The Google Sites API allows client applications to access, publish, and modify content within a Google Site. The API is available to both Google Account and Google Apps users. You can create new sites or copy existing sites as well as
retrieve, create, modify, and delete pages, comments, attachments and can do much more…
