Daily API RoundUp: uebermaps, FXCM, Voodoo Manufacturing

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.

Fifteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Internet of Things, Maps, Sales, and Learning Management Systems. ne highlight today is an API that can allow apps to recognize math problems in images and solve them. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
