What is an API? (Application Programming Interface)

API is the acronym for Application Programming Interface, which is a software intermediary that allows two applications to talk to each other. Each time you use an app like Facebook, send an instant message, or check the weather on your phone, you’re using an API.

Example

When you use an application on your mobile / tablets device, the application then connects to the Internet and sends data to the server. The server then retrieves that data as per the request, interprets it, performs the necessary actions and then sends it back to the application from where it was generated. The application then interprets that data and presents you with the information you wanted in a readable way. This is what an API is - all of this happens via API
