Android developers will soon be allowed to build Google Now access into apps

The API will allow developers of any third-party app to surface information via their own Google Now cards. Google revealed at SXSW on Sunday that an open API will be available soon that all developers can build into their apps. This will give Google Now the ability to search for information from more apps than just those allowed by Google.
