What is the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything? The answer is 42. If you are interested in such number facts and were looking at a source of all such information aggregated from various internet sources, there is good news. Since we track APIs over here at ProgrammableWeb, it should come as no surprise that there is a Numbers API now that gets you access to all kinds of interesting information.
A new service for city planners and others requiring detailed demographic and regional data has a great way of accepting geographic input. Cubit uses the Google Maps API to determine the area in which its user is interested. Then, it queries its own data sources based on the path or shape the user selects.
Last September, OneTok announced that its API moved out of beta and was publicly available for developers to integrate speech recognition functionality into any app. Since then, OneTok has overhauled the platform, refined its focus, and readied itself to better meet developer needs. Today, the platform focuses on audio transport and processing. OneTok has captured its core functionality in an SDK that developers can embed in existing apps or websites.
