Daily API RoundUp: Route 360, Cenit IO, Cisco Flare

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.

Eighteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Artificial Intelligence, Messaging, and iPaaS. Several APIs for returning person and company information and an API for calculating travel time and most efficient routes are highlights. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.


The Motion Intelligence Route360° Mobility Analytics API calculates travel time from one source location to many targets at once. It supports car, public transport, bicycle and walking. It calculates travel time combined with statistics data, so developers can calculate the number of reachable people in a given time and their spending power. Developers can build applications to optimize retail networks, to evaluate real estate or to calculate coverage of a public service. This API is listed under the Mapping category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Mapping APIs.

The Route360° API includes a service to get travel time polygons starting from a specified source point or a list of source points

Pushover is a mobile and desktop notifications service from Superblock. The Pushover Receipts and Callbacks API enables applications that send emergency-priority notifications to get a receipt parameter when they queue a notification. The receipt parameter is a 30-character string consisting of letter and numbers that can be used to query the status of a notification up to one week after it's been received. The Pushover Subscription API allows developers to collect subscriptions for an application in the form of Pushover user keys and then broadcast notifications to those subscribed users. These two APIs have been added to our Messaging category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Messaging APIs.

Meya allows users to build cognitive chat bot apps that are powered by AI. The Meya Webhooks API provides way to be notified of certain events via Webhooks. For example notifications can be sent when a typing indicator is turned on or off by the bot, when a user message is received, when a bot message is sent, when certain user scope data is created, modified, or deleted, and when table scope data is created, modified, or deleted. A Meya REST API is also available. The Meya APIs are listed under the Artificial Intelligence category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Artificial Intelligence APIs.

Cenit IO is an open Platform for data and business Integration. It allows the creation of custom data pipelines for process, storage and data movement between APIs. The Cenit IO Webhooks API is a simple HTTP request that contains JSON or XML formatted data relating to an event on Cenit. Cenit IO REST API is also available, and was updated in our directory recently. The Cenit IO APIs are listed under the iPaaS category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of iPaaS APIs.

Cisco Flare allows users to interact with things in their environment. The Cisco Flare Websocket API provides streaming, real-time interactions with the Flare mobile deployment environment. The API supports setting data values, retrieval, sending action messages, and subscribing push notifications. Data is encoded in JSON format. The Cisco Flare API is listed under the Internet of Things category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Internet of Things APIs.
