SNAPI, which is an awesome name for an API, is the State Notification API. It allows you to keep track of various aspects of your device. From the number of available network connections to the presence of a keyboard, SNAPI can tell you what's up.
Additionally, SNAPI can be used to monitor these system attributes and notify you upon a change. So, for example, if someone in the field who was previously out of range suddenly came within range of a network of some sort, SNAPI can let you know.
