The Amazon Developer Publishing API allows developers to build new apps or upgrade existing ones. This API is restricted to developers with permission to participate in the developer preview. The selection process involves filling out a short questionnaire. Only successful developers are contacted with notification of access details. The API sends JSON-formatted requests and responses.
Twelve APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Internet of Things, Banking, Social, and Languages. Highlights today include APIs from Amazon for developing for Alexa, and banking APIs from BBVA. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
