Of the many APIs we published this week, 15 were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those 15, which include the Datownia API. The Datownia API generates an API from an Excel spreadsheet that allows developers to integrate their data with any website or app. The object of the API is to allow developers to update content on multi-platform apps simultaneously. To learn more about the Datownia API visit the Datownia site as well as the Datownia API blog post.

Datownia, a recent product from Release Mobile, generates an API from an Excel spreadsheet that allows developers to integrate their data with any website or app.
