Daily API RoundUp: Microsoft Payment Request, Basetrip, Netigate

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.

Have a look at what is new in the ProgrammableWeb directory for developers. Fifteen APIs have been added today, in categories including Spam, Travel, Bitcoin, Surveys, and Banking. One highlight today is the Basetrip API, which provides detailed International travel information to users.
