Daily API RoundUp: IEX Cloud, DrugBank, AmplifyReach, FishWatch

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.

Eleven APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Recreation, Events, and Documents. Highlights include an API for mountain bike trail information and an API for adding reverse geocoding and elevation data to applications. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.

APIs
