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.
LaunchPad Recruits has an extremely simple and clear business plan, and therefore a potentially powerful one. It aims to help companies sift through job applicants faster by supplying video interviews of those applying. Employers can watch the video of them responding to questions, and look at a resume before deciding on a face to face meeting. Have you ever been hiring, only to start an interview based on a prospect's resume and find instantly that the person is not a good match? You can end up wading through an interview, looking in vain for ways to end it early. (See graphic.) The LaunchPad Recruits REST API aims to avoid this by having candidates answer the employer's questions on video before any face to face meeting takes place.
