API (Application Programing Interface)

An API is an interface in an application that allows other applications to communicate to the host application.

The host is described as “implementing” or “exposing” an API. APIs hide the details of an application, exposing structured input to the sections that a programmer will find useful.

Some APIs are built to standards; others are unique.
