Single purpose API
URI Query String/CRUD
Of the many APIs we published this week, five were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we'll shine a spotlight on those five, which included the Merriam-Webster Dictionary API for definitions, synonyms and antonyms. We said Webster's API would be good news to education apps that want to include words--and their definitions--in either strictly educational or word play format. Read more in the Webster API post or check out the Merriam-Webster API profile.
Your time is certainly worth more than 5 dollars an hour; why would you waste an hour performing a simple task that you could outsource for less than 5 dollars. Humanoid, a cloud workforce, is hoping that you see things this way. Humanoid has a 30,000+ person workforce on tap, waiting to perform all of your simple, yet crucial tasks. The company has developed a workflow that allows several workers to simultaneously perform the same task, then cross-references the results to ensure accuracy. If a discrepancy exists within the results, the task is sent to a highly rated worker for review. Humanoid provides the Humanoid API to allow developers to integrate this functionality into existing platforms.
