Daily API RoundUp: Google Cloud Stackdriver, TomTom, Pyze, Monzo, SlimPay

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.

Nineteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Internet of Things, Cloud, Banking, and Mapping. Included today are several APIs from TomTom for navigation. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.

APIs

The AppFollow API allows developers to track store activity for Google Play, Apple App Store, and Windows Store using data parsers and algorithms. Data retrieved can include real-time app monitoring for reviews, ranks, keywords, ratings, and more. The AppFollow API is listed under the Applications category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Applications APIs.

SlimPay provides payments solutions for subscriptions. The SlimPay REST API is primarily used to enable users to program the execution of payments. Some features include; Mandate Signature, Direct Debit, Card Payment and more. This API is listed under the Payments category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Payments APIs.

Monzo (formerly known as Mondo) is a provider of smart banking technology with instant payment notifications, built-in budgeting and fee-free travel. The Monzo API is a allows developers to interact with Monzo user accounts and offers both a REST and webhooks service. API methods are available for accounts, balance, transactions and more. The Monzo API is listed under the Banking category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Banking APIs.

GrantedBy.Me is a Multi-Factor authentication service that allows developers tor replace password security with fingerprint scanning, face recognition, and gestures. The GrantedBy.Me API features AES-256 signed with HMAC SHA-256 encryption, enforced SSL/TLS communication, and RSA public encryption. The GrantedBy.Me API is listed under the Identity category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Identity APIs.

CheetahO is a website optimization system that compresses images up to 60% in order to speed up website loading. All the stored files are deleted after a few hours for privacy reasons. The CheetahO API returns URLs of optimized images, and information about processed images such as new size and saved data. The CheetahO API is listed under the Optimization category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Optimization APIs.

Arrayent is a SaaS IoT platform. Arrayent EcoAdaptor v3 API supports integration between Arrayent and other cloud services (such as Amazon Echo and IFTT) by handling authentication, authorization, and functional entry points. Arrayent Embedded API's methods allow developers to configure the Arrayent Connect Agent (ACA), receive a raw data message, and get information on the status of ACA function calls. Arrayent EcoAdaptor for Nest API allows developers to federate and defederate with Nest cloud services. It includes commands for submitting an oath token to the EcoAdapter for Nest service, updating an existing token with a new one, and defederating from Nest. Arrayent APIs are categorized under Internet of Things. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Internet of Things APIs.

Pyze provides behavioral analytics and growth intelligence services for application developers. Pyze API eliminates the need for personal data collection and enables developers to automate engagement for retention. API methods for personalization, notifications and event handling are available. The Pyze API is listed under the Monetization category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Monetization APIs.

Mapping and navigation solutions provider TomTom has added another API to its portfolio: Traffic Stats API. The RESTful API offers developers programmatic access to TomTom's Traffic Stats Web services for analyzing historical traffic data. The API is powered by information received from TomTom navigation devices, in-dash systems, and apps sent back to TomTom.

Other APIs recently added to our directory from TomTom include:

TomTom Online Maps API is a digital navigation portal that consists of the Tile, Web Map Service (WMS), and Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) APIs. The API uses grids to split maps into tiles that can be zoomed at 19 different levels to enhance the visibility of maps and features, and acts as auseful tool for conveying metadata resources of maps to clients.

TomTom Online Traffic Flow API and

TomTom Online Traffic Incidents API allows developers to construct applications that display real-time traffic data on maps.

TomTom Online Search API simplifies the search of addresses and points of interest (POIs). The API uses latitudes and longitudes to display the descriptions and locations of addresses, landmark features, and other POIs.

TomTom Online Routing API calculates route distances and travel time relative to the prevailing traffic conditions and prescribed road speeds.

 

The Google Cloud Machine Learning API's TensorFlow functionality affords developers greater flexibility when using cloud to build apps. Its integration supports manipulation of data, training of machine learning models, and deployment of Google Cloud Platform (GCP) resources in predictions. The API is currently a beta release, and is listed in the Machine Learning category.

The Google Cloud Stackdriver platform allows users to log, monitor, trace, report errors, and diagnose operations when running Google Cloud Platform (GCP) or Amazon Web Services (AWS) applications. Google Stackdriver Trace REST API finds, collects and analyzes latency data associated with the deployment of the App Engine applications. Google Cloud Stackdriver Error Reporting API identifies errors in running cloud applications. Google Cloud Stackdriver Logging API synchronizes the programmatic storage, search, and analysis of the data and event logs generated by the GCP and AWS applications. The APIs is listed under the Cloud category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Cloud APIs.
