Every day, the ProgrammableWeb team is busy, updating its three primary directories for APIs, clients (language-specific libraries or SDKs for consuming or providing APIs), and source code samples. If you have new APIs, clients, or source code examples to add to ProgrammableWeb’s directories, we offer forms (APIs, Clients, Source Code) for submitting them to our API research team. If there’s a listing in one of our directories that you’d like to claim as the owner, please contact us at editor@programmableweb.com.

Nine APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Air Travel, Travel and Games. Highlights include a “smart” dictionary API which returns definitions as well as linguistic analysis, an API for chess, and several travel APIs. Here’s a rundown of the latest additions.
