Daily API RoundUp: BoardEx, Sensibill, Cleveland Museum of Art, ProductPlan, Anvil

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.

Twelve APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Museums, Math, and Spelling. Highlights include an Arabic spelling check API and an API for capturing receipt information and making it machine readable. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
