Daily API RoundUp: Rocket League, Elevation, HireAHelper, Presshub, Ant+

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.

Fourteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Games, Location, and Security. One hightlight today is an API that provides player and game stats for the popular soccer battling car game, Rocket League.
