Daily API RoundUp: Dexcom, Mackerel, Peristocks, Dynamsoft

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.

I would suggest to review ZeroBounce[dot]net as an email validation tool. I’ve been using its own API for quite a while and has proven to be quite a good tool for lead validation.
