Daily API RoundUp: TestFairy, Form.io, CognisantMD, MetricsBot

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 in the Testing, Medical Records, and Domains categories, among others. Here, we summarize the new additions.


TestFairy provides testing features for Android and iOS. The service lets developers see a video of exactly what a testing user does on the device screen. Get lists of projects and sessions, tester lists, tester email addresses, and crash information with the TestFairy REST API.

The API is categorized under Testing. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Testing APIs.

MetricsBot provides tools for website metrics and domain data. With the MetricsBot API, developers can track their websites, protect brands, invest in better domains and act faster on various domain related issues. Get machine-readable information about any domain, Alexa rank, estimated traffic and more with the API. The MetricsBot API is listed under the Domains category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Domains APIs.

Form.io is a drag and drop form builder for applications. The Platform Builds forms and APIs in one step. Users can interact with their data from apps in a different language than those supported by embedding. Bootstrap an existing application to automatically connect with Form.io. We've categorized the Form.io API under Forms. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Forms APIs.

IBM Watson is an Artificial Intelligence service that can answer questions using natural language processing. As mentioned yesterday, IBM Watson has multiple APIs available for developers already, and two more were added to the directory today.

The IBM Watson Document Conversion API can convert a single PDF, Microsoft Word, or HTML document—or any combination of those document types—into a single HTML document, a single Answer unit JSON document, or a plain text document. A demo of the service is available.

IBM Watson Retrieve and Rank API uses Machine Learning to enhance information retrieval by looking for "signals" in a given collection of data. Developers can load data in, use known relevant results to train a machine learning model, and then use the model to provide better results to end users. Ocean Open

We've categorized the IBM Watson APIs under the Natural Language Processing category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Natural Language Processing APIs.

Ocean from CognisantMD aims to improve patient experience a service that combines mobile interactive surveys in a medical office with the patient's EMR. The Ocean Open API allows Integration of cloud services into EMR data, clinical forms, patient data. The Ocean Open API works with Ocean Online and with Ocean Tablets.
