Mashups using the same API (2)
So far more than 650 APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in 2014 and some new trends are starting to emerge. Some recent popular categories remain near the top of the charts. The financial APIs that put APIs in the mainstream continue to expand, adding about 50 new APIs in the first quarter. A few other categories were less consistent and had extreme rises or falls in popularity.

Our new BART API profile has details and joins a growing list of transit-related APIs including government-sponsored web services Portland's Trimet API as well as commercial services like the Hopstop API and Urban Mapping's Mass Transit Proximity API which we covered earlier this month.
