API comparaison & Estimote API compatibility

Hello,

I am currently studying computer science and I make an application based on the use of several beacons.

So I have two questions before I start.

Would anyone have done a comparison of different APIs to perform beacons detection? (Advantage / disadvantage)

  • Estimote API
  • Android Beacon Library
  • Proximity Beacon API

My second question, the use of the estimote API allows to detect also other types of beacons that beacons Estimote?

Example: Blue, Gimbal, EMBC01?

Thanks for your answers,
Mathias
