Daily API RoundUp: AniList, Nuzzel, OnApp, Walls.io, Cybersource

Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or Source Code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb's directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there's a listing in one of our directories that you'd like to claim as the owner, please contact us at editor@programmableweb.com.

Seventeen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Animation, Social, and Astrology. Also new to the directory are APIs for handling Location information and for global Payments operations. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.


IsLocation is a Web Service for developers to handle location information within applications. The isLocation API is a RESTful Platform that supports the implementation of location concepts.

This API is listed under the Location category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Location APIs.

Walls.io collects and displays all social media interaction including posts from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others, based on a hashtag in a social hub.
