Daily API RoundUp: Front, Envoy, Caringo Swarm, CareerBuilder IOS Library

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.

We’ve added 6 APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory today in Email, Storage, and Collaboration categories, among others. Also added were client libraries for the Amazon Marketplace Web Service (MWS) and CareerBuilder APIs.


Ethnio displays a survey for site visitors and then directs qualified responders to a partner site for more in-depth interviews. Use the Ethinio Partner API to screen participants for your research. The API uses HTTP GET methods and accepts either JSON or XML data formats.
