Daily API RoundUp: Bosch, Democracy Works, Greenbook, PrimeBit

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.

Nine APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Internet of Things, Voting, and Agriculture. Included is an API that determines optimal flight patterns considering cosmic ray exposure, and the Democracy Works API for voting data. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
