This week we had 23 new APIs added to our API directory. These include an ecommerce platform API for building online stores, an API for a local business directory search, a social conversation aggregation API, an online image and graphics editing service, and an online document collaboration, storage and publishing API. More details on each of these new APIs below:

This search API "enables a robust search experience for your consumers across both web and mobile applications without the need for your own directory listings.
