The rate of new web APIs continues apace with our API directory now hitting an even 400 entries. If you View by Category you can see there are just over 50 categories of APIs now listed. Top 3 categories? Mapping, Reference and Internet.

The 400th entry is the Multimap API. The latest version of this JavaScript API for European and global mapping was just announced and includes new features like a geocoding API, search by radius, routing with 'travelling salesman' optimization and route animation, and local points of interest, POI, like schools, transportation, restaurants and bars, ATMs, and car parks.
