Getting in the right amount of daily exercise is important for general health, but how many of us know exactly how active we are on a daily basis? How much do we actually move and how can we track it? Moves is an application that transforms your iPhone into a portable movement tracker; a handy tool that is a combination of the kind of functionalities you'd find in other gadgets and apps such as Nike+ fuelband, Fitbit, Runkeeper, Runtastic etc. Moves also provides the Moves API that allows developers to access this functionality and integrate it with other applications.
As the week kicks into high gear, here is another edition of ProgrammableWeb's "In other API Economy News". Today we look at the Audioburst API, billed as the Google for audio; Status.im's API for creating decentralized chatbots, Movesense's announcement of their motion sensor and SDK and more.
This article is part of a 10-part series about interesting APIs that were added to our directory during 2016. Mapping and Location APIs are covered in this segment. The APIs were chosen by our researchers, by popularity according to website traffic, and by mentions on social media.
