Our API directory now includes 92 APIs. The newest is the EasyPost API. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the FedEx API. We list 19 FedEx mashups. Below you’ll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of shipping APIs.
This week we had 62 new APIs added to our API directory including a digital mapping service, natural language personal assistant application, Radioshack developer service, semantic engine service and mobile video content platform. In addition we covered an API for quoting, booking and tracking shipments. Below are more details on each of these new APIs.
Of the many APIs we published this week, seventeen were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those seventeen, which included the Anime News Network Encyclopedia API. The Anime News Network holds a database of over 14,000 titles, from over 10,000 companies. The API allows developers to request general reports and detailed information about anime titles, for up to 50 requests at a single time.
Who needs a tracking service when you can just hop on the USPS, FedEx, UPS, or DHL website (or whoever your carrier is) and just track? Maybe you. The Trackthis API integrates an amazing array of functions into your application. The API webpage lists over 10 carriers you can get notifications for.
You may not have realized the benefits of being able to use tweets to find out where your Amazon delivery is, but TrackThis wants to change that. It’s an app that combines more than six different APIs in order to let you track your packages over email, text message, Facebook or Twitter. It monitors your packages and when they move it sends you a message with the new location and ETA. TrackThis supports FedEx, UPS, USPS, DHL and other tracking codes.
