Single purpose API
Google has made several announcements including the launch of the Google Consumer Surveys API, the general availability of the Google Cloud Vision API with new features, the launch of Google Cloud CDN Beta, and the launch of Autodesk Maya. The APIs are available on the Google Cloud Platform site.
Online video is hot and so are online video APIs. We recently added the Vimeo API to our listings and this brings the total number of APIs at ProgrammableWeb to 19 (see them all here). The king of these is still the YouTube API but for developers there are lots of choices.
Railsware, creator of Mailtrap (email test environment), has released the Mailtrap API. Mailtrap provides a "fake" SMTP server so developers can test email environments without the need of actual customers or users. Mailtrap has proved a useful tool to the developer community; however, API access to Mailtrap features has been desired for third party integration. Mailtrap Product Manager, Pavel Pavlovsky, announced that numerous developers requested API access over the past year and Railsware is happy to announce its availability.
