Single purpose API

Skyscanner is a travel search site that helps users find flight, hotel and car rental deals anywhere in the world. This has led to considerable growth in website traffic, but it is the free access the company provides to its APIs that is generating interest from travel startups.
Service discovery is not an easy task in today's Web. Discovering an API requires searching through a large number of services on the Internet and then reading pages of documentation to figure out how to use the ones that may match your application. This is the case in Programmable Web as well. The API directory shows over 5000 APIs which are manually categorized in over 50 service categories.
