Daily API RoundUp: CardConnect, Parrot Sequoia, SYNQ, Motion.ai, Iris

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.

Thirteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Payments, Invoicing, and Natural Language Processing. One highlight today is the SYNQ video Platform API, which provides faster deployments than most other video delivery platforms.


CardConnect is a secure payment processing solution for merchants. The CardConnect API provides transaction functions as well as endpoints to authorize, capture, void, and inquire funds.
