For a read only API the Yahoo! Answers API

probably is a good start:

  • questionSearch
  • getByCategory (getByTag in askbot)
  • getQuestion
  • getByUser

A read/write API could encourage a android or iPhone app developer to write a mobile client on top of that. Sth. like

  1. questionSearch (to check if it was already asked),
  2. authenticate,
  3. postQuestion,
  4. getQuestion (for the answers) and
  5. vote/rate/choose best answer
