Examples:

 

Developer: see the technical specification of the REST service.

 

Besides extracting people's names, the service also identifies typocal functional email addresses such as info@, webmaster@ etc.

Applications:

Address your newsletter recipients personally, even if they have never entered their name.

Automatically pre-fill the name form fields of a person after entering the email address.
