    Google API allows you to extend Google's offerings. For example, you can design your own Google Maps - any way you like using API. The ProgrammableWeb directory lists 93 Google APIs.

    Google API is an interface that queries the Google database to help programmers in the development of their applications. Initially, all Google APIs were available in BETA version, but due to open sourcing and free sharing by Google, a number of APIs were developed with successful implementation in various applications.
