This week we had 43 new APIs added to our API directory including a service to connect applications to HTTP URLs, online marketplace for event tickets, RSS feed reading service, application monetization platform and human body 3D imaging service. We also covered an API to help with the recruiting process as well as a bug reporting service. Below are more details on each of these new APIs.
Of the many APIs we published this week, eight were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those eight, which included the app55 API. The app55 API is a UK-based payment service provider that offers developers a simple, secure payment method. The most unique feature of the API is its PCI outsourcing, allowing for third parties to better handle the security. To learn more about the app55 API visit the app55 site as well as the app55 API blog post.
BugDigger, a BugsIO bug reporting tool, offers the BugDigger API that can integrate with bug tracking and reporting systems. BugDigger removes the manual, human element from bug reporting and leverages its technology to automatically capture the needed data to accurately report bugs in a given environment. BugDigger aims to take the human error and labor out of bug reporting which enables software developers to rely on accurate reports and fixes instead of uncovering errors in bug reports.
