This week we had 81 new APIs added to our API directory including a Google Apps reseller account management service, iPad point-of-sale service, photo manipulation service, customer feedback service and a customer loyalty program service. We also covered three APIs for beating CAPTCHAs and reviewed the DynaMed clinical reference API. Below are more details on each of these new APIs.
The Death By CAPTCHA API is one of three CAPTCHA beating APIs posted to our index in just the last week. After taking a look at them I can say that they are just as seedy and sketchy as you would imagine. Even so, I don’t see these services going away anytime soon. The existence of super cheap CAPTCHA beating systems begs the question, how effective is the visual CAPTCHA today?
