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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Twelve APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Finance, Location, Security and Education. Featured today the Voysis API that gives voice-enabled applications natural language instruction plus brand search and discovery abilities. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
Radar provides a location platform for applications. The technology helps companies collect, analyze, and act on location data. The Radar REST API allows developers to access user, geofence, and event data and to create applications using Radar. API methods include manage users, manage geofences, retrieve queries by locations, and manage events. The Radar API is listed under the Location category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Location APIs.
