Single purpose API

Digital Public Library Launch. Google Glass API could be foggy. Plus: Disrupt NY Hackathon, the new open world of banking, and 20 new APIs.
Of the many APIs we published this week, nine were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those nine, which included the VoiceShot API. VoiceShot IVR (Interactive Voice Response) allows the automation of incoming and outgoing phone calls and sending and receiving text messages for application developers. This provides developers with a means to automate customer service and customize their application experience. To learn more about the VoiceShot API visit the VoiceShot site as well as the VoiceShot API blog post.
Earlier this year, ProgrammableWeb reported that the New York Public Library (NYPL) had launched the What's on the Menu API, the first public API released by the institution. The New York Public Library has just announced the launch of the NYPL Digital Collections API which allows developers programmatic access to the Library's vast collections of digitized creative works including manuscripts, historical maps, rare prints, photographs and much more.
