As another week comes to a close, we take a look back at some of the APIs that caught our attention. This week there were 40 APIs added to our directory this week and our team picked the ones that stood out. Read below for more information on each.

VirtusizeThis week, I came across two new applications and their respective APIs that help people find the right fit when shopping online. We've all been there - ordering clothes online and just hoping and praying they will fit so we can wear the stuff right away and not have to deal with the hassle of returns and exchanges. Two new applications, Virtusize and FittingReality are hoping to make this easier on us (and online retailers) by providing virtual fitting rooms, each in a different way. What is even cooler than the functionality of these apps is that they've both opened up APIs to make integration into online retail sites easier! I'm hoping some of my favorite stores get on this right away. - Melody

PanoptaPanopta is more thorough than your average monitoring service, catching even brief outages across server networks on any scale. Its tagline claims it "never blinks," and from what I've read, I believe it. - Rhea

CamFindCamFind is a visual search app capable of returning search results based on images captured in photographs. The obvious application would be any app or web service that interacts with images and CamFind offers another tool for enriching these tools. - Patrick
