Daily API RoundUp: Melissa, Realty Mole, TrackICO, OpenDroneMap

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.

Thirteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Messaging, Real Estate, and Cryptocurrency. Highlights include APIs from data intelligence solution provider Melissa for ensuring correct business contact data. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.


Realty Mole scans thousands of rental listings to calculate an estimated rent for any address. Based on the provided property details the Realty Mole Rent Estimate API will return a rent estimate along with comparable rental properties. This API queries a massive database of recent rental listings and uses a correlation algorithm to find the most comparable rentals. The API returns address, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, geolocation of property, price, square footage, city, state, days listed, and more. The Realty Mole API is listed under the Real Estate category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Real Estate APIs.
