This week we had 96 new APIs added to our API directory including a cloud-based app compiler, IMS application platform, mobile live chat service, time tracking service and media access service. We also covered Reel Surfer’s video editing API. Below are more details on each of these new APIs.
Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll launch those ten into the spotlight, which included the Sloan Digital Sky Survey API. The SDSS has captured images covering more than a quarter of the sky, containing more than 930,000 galaxies and 120,000 quasars. The API allows developers to do a cone search, retrieving whatever is available for a given position in the sky and a given radius about that position.
Our API directory now includes 45 SEO APIs. The newest is the SEOlytics API. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the Google AdSense API. We list 77 Google AdSense mashups. Below you’ll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of SEO APIs.

The world wide web is a densely populated jungle of competitors fighting for the consumer’s attention, and in order to stay ahead of the pack, it’s good to know the facts.
