Daily API RoundUp: Microsoft Outlook, Dialogfeed, Kimono Labs, Timekit

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.

We’ve added 6 APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory today in Email, Activity Streams, Calendars, Financial, and Search categories. Here's a summary of what is new.


Microsoft Outlook is an email, calendar, and contact management system. The Microsoft Outlook REST API allows developers to access and integrate the functionality of Microsoft Outlook with other applications.
