Daily API RoundUp: Brawl Stars, Connexun, ID Analyzer, FBI

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.

Seven APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Games, Animals, and Images. Highlights include an API which returns data from the FBI Wanted lists and an API for identity verification from images. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
