Of the many APIs we published this week, fifteen were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those fifteen, which included the The Xchangeonline API. The Xchangeonline API is a tool that provides developers with currency conversion and rounding functionalities that can be integrated into their applications. Developers simply request the URL, specifying the desired function, the amount, the current currency, the desired currency, and of course their API key. The service can convert between 100 different currencies worldwide with the option of more currencies given a more expensive plan.
This week we had 42 new APIs added to our directory and our staff picked their favorites. Among them include Foursquare co-founder Naveen Selvadurai's personal API, a market research application, access to US foreign policy records and a video interviewing API. Read below for more information on each.
