The Associated Press, the world's oldest and largest newsgathering organization, has an API that enables developers to build applications incorporating data from the Associated Press's expansive database of content. The platform includes tools that allow developers to target the exact content users want. The API allows users to search and download AP Images.
With The AP releasing an updated version of its Elections API earlier this year, news organisations across the US now have faster access to elections race information. This led NPR and the NY Times to improve on their legacy FTP system by building a new API for accessing AP information faster.
