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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fifteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Internet of Things, Engagement, Chat, and Jobs. Highlights today include an API that can enable apps to monitor air quality and an API that can enable apps to count people. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
Foobot is an air quality monitor that allows people to monitor the air around them and control air freshness. The Foobot REST API allows developers to create applications for air quality and retrieve device details, plus search and retrieve data points. The Foobot API is listed under the Environment category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Environment APIs.

The stampd Blockchain Time Stamping API creates notarized documents with a cryptographic hash. It is available with JSON objects and GET methods. Users can obtain a stamped document by investing EUR 0.09 (9 cents) via PayPal. This API is listed under the Cryptocurrency category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Cryptocurrency APIs.
Size My Tires provides a service for finding the correct tire for a specific automobile. The Size My Tires API allows tire shops to search for the stock tire size of a specific make, model, and year of vehicle. The API can be integrated with tire shop websites. It is free of charge for tire shops that place a backlink to sizemytires.com. The Size My Tires API is listed under the Auto category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Auto APIs.
SmartSurvey is an online survey and questionnaire platform. The SmartSurvey API can be used to to build interactive surveys, manage collaborative teams, and report analytic feedback. This REST API is listed under the Surveys category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Surveys APIs.

Pipe is a video recording platform for websites and applications. The Pipe API integrates screen video recording service into applications. Authentication is automatic via webhooks, although it provides extra layers of security with HTTP and X-Pipe-Signature. Developers can use the API to create video recording projects that provide 4k to UltraHD quality, bandwidth independent, MP4 conversion, snapshots, and device rotation. Pipe API is listed under the Video category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Video APIs.
Symphony is a cloud-based secure communications platform for companies. The Symphony REST API allows developers to integrate the functionality of Symphony with other applications. With the API, developers can create applications, bots, and webhooks based on the various functionalities of Symphony. The API is listed under the Collaboration category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Collaboration APIs.
Density is a people counter platform. It counts people by tracking movement and not by recognizing faces, alleviating privacy concerns. The Density API supports the counting, recording, and monitoring of people traffic in particular locations in public or private domains. This includes business premises, public facilities, schools, and security installations, among others. The Density API is listed under the Internet of Things category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of IoT APIs.

Pypestream is a customer engagement and feedback platform. The Pypestream REST API allows developers to access and integrate the functionalities of Pypestream with other applications. Public documentation is not available; API access comes with account service. The API is listed under the Engagement category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Engagement APIs.
BitScoop Platform is an API integration platform. It provides simple API management services that are created for developers. The bitScoop Data API can be used to configure individual endpoints . Each configured endpoint becomes available on the dynamically provisioned Data API for the Provider Map. The data returned from each endpoint call will be dependent on the configuration, but the URL, headers, and parameters follow a general format. The BitScoop Connections API keeps track of the connection information including the status and any authentication and authorization keys. It is is built around interacting with "data providers," such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google, and the APIs they provide. The BitScoop Auth API is a simple tool that allows the users of applications to finish granting permissions. The BitScoop APIs are listed under the Data-as-a-Service category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Data-as-a-Service APIs.
