The Pokémon Go API is an unofficial API that was reverse engineered by independent developers. The API integrates applications with the augmented reality multiplayer game by Niantic. Pokémon Go combines vector tiles and a pool of geo-tagged photos from Google Maps, and the popular franchise by Nintendo. Players can customize their trainer, capture Pokémon, and participate in gym battles at designated places. Currently, this API is undocumented.
Which APIs are the most popular with developers? There are a lot of ways to come to an answer; this month we are using our directory data to offer one. Every API in our directory has a track functionality and by looking at the data we can see which APIs our readers have shown the most interest in.
Fourteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Games, Banking, Education, Customer Relationship Management, and Home Automation. Featured today is the API for the wildly popular augmented reality game Pokemon Go. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
