Single purpose API
Hoover's, the business information company, has released their own Hoover's API, aka "HAPI". This new API enables developers to create applications that utilize Hoover's database of 27 million companies and 34 million business executives (details at our Hoover's API profile).

Less than two months ago, Merriam-Webster announced that some of its references would be available via an API. Now, competitor Cambridge University Press has followed suit with the Cambridge Dictionaries Online API.
