Yodlee Interactive, financial data and transaction platform provider, has launched major enhancements to its API offering. Over 600 companies around the world already rely on Yodlee to fuel financial apps and services for millions of consumers. Yodlee Interactive’s API previously supported SOAP/XML and powered some of the most innovative financial apps around. However, an expanded support for REST, JSON, and HTML will enable simplified integration and cross-platform functionality.
CityGrid Media, the company behind local mainstay CitySearch, has announced a new version of its CityGrid API. The service offers developers new access to content, as well as new ways to monetize whatever integrations they might build. The new API provides features now synonymous with local services, such as business listings and coupons. And CityGrid is sharing revenues with developers.
Data Explorers tracks financial data (i.e. securities lending, short selling, fund activity, etc.) and captures over 85% of global transactions each day. The Data Explorers API (DX-Open) allows “developers to integrate [the Data Exporers’] database directly into your current workflow.” DX-Open levels the playing field from a transaction standpoint. Now home-based, day-traders have access to the same robust data that was formerly limited to global financial institutions and seasoned practitioners.
