Daily API RoundUp: Social Searcher, Mailboxlayer, Adjust, Unofficial Waze

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.

Six APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory today in categories such as Search, Analytics, and Animation. Also added: a Node.js library for the WealthEngine API, which can determine a person’s net worth.

APIs

Social Searcher lets users monitor all mentions of particular keywords in popular social networks. The Social Searcher API enables users to get real-time search results from multiple sources in one request. Results are returned in a unified format from 9 social networks: Twitter, Google+, YouTube, Instagram, Tumblr, Reddit, Flickr, Dailymotion, and Vimeo.

Robohash is a leading robot hashing tool, with millions of image variations available. The Robohash Image Generator API allows developers to add the function to produce robot images for any text to applications. Along with robot images, alien and monster images can also be returned from inputted text, IP addresses, email addresses, filenames, userIDs, etc.

We’ve categorized the Robohash API under the Animation category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Animation APIs.

Waze is a crowdsourced traffic and navigation application. The unofficial free Waze API provides route calculations, just like Waze, but in slower response time. JSON format and API Key authentication are two of the main features offered to developers interested in implementation of travel, mapping, and social apps. This API is listed under the Travel category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Travel APIs.

Mailboxlayer aids developers and businesses in fighting fraudulent users to increase successful deliveries of email campaigns. The Mailboxlayer JSON API validates and verifies addresses using SMTP, syntax checks, typo checks and suggestions, free and disposable provider filtering, an email quality score, and more. We’ve primarily categorized the Mailboxlayer API under the Email category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Email APIs.

Crypto Capital allows customers, merchants, and traders to open accounts for Fiat currency that experiences no lag when transferring funds between them and the users’ exchange accounts. The Crypto Capital API allows developers to access their Crypto Capital banking accounts. This API is under the Cryptocurrency category. See ProgrammableWeb’s complete list of Cryptocurrency APIs.
