Daily API RoundUp: Trip, Paydock, CycloMedia, Threat Connect

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.

Eleven APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Design, Payments and Transportation. Included today is an API for implementing data from travel discovery and reviews website Trip.com, and an API for Threat Connect threat intelligence services. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.


Trip.com provides users with links for deals and reviews of hotels, restaurants, and attractions globally. The Trip.com API integrates hotel reviews into travel applications. With the API, developers can implement data of hotels, restaurants, and things to do in more than 60,000 destinations. The API is listed under the Tourism category.
