Daily API RoundUp: MapFruition, Wercker, Ents24, Qymatix Solutions, VoiceBase, Vetr

Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or source code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb’s directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there’s a listing in one of our directories that you’d like to claim as the owner, please contact us at editor@programmableweb.com.

We've added twelve APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Mapping, Events, Messaging, Sales, and Finance. Featured today is an API for crowdsourced stock market investment rating service Vetr. Here's a rundown of the new additions and how they can assist developers.

APIs
