Daily API RoundUp: WikiLeaks Hillary Clinton Email Archive, Bitport, AppMonsta, PredictHQ, Bitcoin Block Explorer

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.

Thirteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Bitcoin, Politics, Torents and Nutrition. One highlight today is an API which provides data from Hilliary Clinton's emails while she was Secretary of State.. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.


AppMonsta provides app marketplace data. The AppMonsta API allows developers to get app data for all apps offered by Google Play and the iOS App Store.

The PredictHQ API is an events intelligence Platform. The API aggregates events such as holidays, school holidays, concerts, festivals, performing arts, community, sports, conferences, expos, daylight savings, airport delays, severe weather, natural disasters, and predicts how these events could affect your business. The API allows users to filter events and integrate it into their target products or applications to operate as a single source of data for events. All events have a numeric ranking so developers have the ability to further filter by major to minor events. The PredictHQ API is listed under the Events category. See ProgrammableWeb's complete list of Events APIs.

The Bitport platform is used to download torrents to the cloud, and play them online. The Bitport API allows developers to create torrent related extensions and plugins. Also, torrents can be accessed anywhere, and big torrents are downloaded faster. All the work is done by Bitport's servers; so, the user's IP address is kept secure.
