Single purpose API
As another week comes to a close, we take a look back at some of the APIs that caught our attention. This week there were 43 APIs added to our directory this week and our team picked the ones that stood out. Read below for more information on each.
Of the many APIs we published this week, eight were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those eight, which included the app55 API. The app55 API is a UK-based payment service provider that offers developers a simple, secure payment method. The most unique feature of the API is its PCI outsourcing, allowing for third parties to better handle the security. To learn more about the app55 API visit the app55 site as well as the app55 API blog post.
Poikos, computer vision system provider, has launched the FlixFit API that allows third party apps and websites to capture high quality human body measurements through imaging.
