Daily API RoundUp: ScrapeBoss, Infrrd, MasterTables, Goalserve

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.

Seventeen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Data, Water, Patents, and Fitness. Highlights include an API for extracting pertinent information out of hand written receipts and invoices, and an API for restoring and maintaining business data. Check them out below.
