In addition to the 4 new APIs we outlined yesterday, we had four others just added to our API directory. These include an API for creating a virtual workforce, an API that can identify what language you are speaking, a SIP-based voice platform service for VoiceXML apps, and new URL shortening service. Here are more details on each of these new APIs:

LangIdLangId API: LangID is a fast way to retrieve information about any sort of language, without specifying the language. Give the service a piece of text and it provides the English name of the language, the ISO code, and an image of the flag of one of the countries this language is spoken in. The API extends LangID for developers to build on.

LiveWorkLiveWork API: The LiveWork Open Workforce API (OWAPI) enables businesses to integrate applications with an on-demand virtual workforce provided by LiveWork. LiveWork's platform, which integrates crowdsourcing and cloud computing, "offers a new approach for leveraging virtual teams of freelancers that can perform high-volume, repetitive tasks. OWAPI is a vital link for the integration of data, applications, and LiveWork's services, and it represents a unique API that combines programmatic access to manual services."

shortrshortr API: Shortr is a URL shortening service. The API allows developers to create custom or random urls via a simple HTTP GET request. Useful with services like Twitter.

VoxeoVoxeo API: Voxeo offers a SIP voice platform as an on-demand service, powered by VoiceXML and CCXML API standards. Voxeo supports IVR, speech recognition, DB integration, CTI, call control and recording, conferencing, and more. The Voxeo API provides programmatic access to these voice and text to speech services (TTS).
