Daily API RoundUp: Flow, Scanova, Quikkly, Returnly

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 QR Codes, eCommerce, and Backend. Highlights include an API that predicts football (soccer) match results and an API for Flow project management. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.

APIs

Scanova allows customers to design, create, and manage personalized QR codes and dynamic QR codes. The Scanova QR Code Generation API can be used to integrate with the service to generate custom scannable codes for sharing to social media, engaging customers by location, making payments, and much more. The platform offers lead generation, analytics, and enterprise features. The API is listed under the QR Codes category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of QR Codes APIs.
