Daily API RoundUp: Starling Bank, ICObench, Estated, UserIQ

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.

Sixteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Banking, Mapping, and Photos. Highlight include the Get Image API which returns data about the location and cameras used for a particular photograph. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.


Starling Bank is a mobile-only banking service application in the UK. The Starling Bank REST API allows developers to access banking functions including managing accounts, retrieving statements, and retrieving transactions. The Starling Bank API has been added to our growing list of Banking APIs.

The Get Image API retrieves image metadata and converts an image into a base64 string without interacting with a server. Developers can authenticate with token and receive responses in JSON format. Responses include (EXIF and TIFF) data about images, the location a picture was captured, camera settings used to capture a picture with no server code and more. The Get Image API is listed under the Photos category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Photos APIs.

Todoist provides a "to-do list" service to assist users in getting organized. It is available for individuals and teams on various devices and platforms. The Todoist Webhooks Sync API allows applications to receive real-time notifications (in the form of HTTP POST Payload) on the subscribed user events. Once webhook is set up, developers will start receiving webhook events from all app users immediately. This API is listed under the Lists category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Lists APIs.

The Google Maps Time Zone API allows developers to get time offset data for any location on earth. Developers can request information for a specific latitude/longitude pair and date, and the API will return the timezone's name, its offset from UTC, and its daylight savings offset. Results are returned in English by default, but other languages are available. The API is listed under the Mapping category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Mapping APIs.

Estated aggregates, digitalizes, and standardizes property data and presents it to consumers through an API and various products. The Estated Property Data API provides easily integrated data for millions of property records for applications. The API returns specifics about sites (location, zones, views, & much more), structures (BR and BA count, units, garage size, AC, fireplace, & much more), also data about owners, taxes, sales, mortgages, and comparisons.
