Daily API RoundUp: Houndify, Velocity Weather, Voucherify, NGRAIN, OneMap

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.

Ten APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Augmented Reality, Weather, Voice, and Mapping. Highlights today include Houndify API, which enables voice commands for applications, and Velocity Weather API from Baron. Here, we summarize the new additions and how they can assist developers.


The Baron Velocity Weather API allows developers to incorporate the Baron Weather service into their applications. Data provided includes weather, shore wave conditions, tornado tracking, or roadway conditions, returned in text or graphical PNGs for map overlays.
