Daily API RoundUp: Microsoft Computer Vision, Recombee, Vidsource, Twin Prime, Space Bunny, Plus 13 More

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.

Eighteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Internet of Things, Recognition, Medical Records, Weather, and Financial. One highlight is an API called GETHealth that aggregates data from multiple health apps and wearables. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
