Daily API RoundUp: LiftIgniter, Astro Digital, Finalsite

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.

Sixteen more APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Education, Authentication, Billing, and Messaging. Today's highlights include an API for personalizing user experiences and an API for adding branding to videos and other content. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
