Daily API RoundUp: Apple Music, Microsoft Intune, Lokalise, Nexosis, Unblu

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.

Nineteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Engagement, Translation, and Machine Learning. Highlights today include the Apple Music API and APIs from MeteoGroup for weather apps that cater to business needs. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
