In the two weeks since the launch of literallyanything.io — our text-to-web app software that allows you to build apps on-demand— there have been some major changes to both the frontend and the backend

Most notably, our engineering team has been adding new APIs to the platform, allowing users to build personal toys/widgets, games, toys, quizzes, and more LAPPS with advanced features. There’s a lot more to come… but in the meantime, check out some of the newest APIs available to use on Literally Anything (and some of our favorite use cases for each) below.

As always, feel free to reach out if you have any feedback, questions, or API requests. 


OpenAI provides tools that use artificial intelligence and machine learning to perform various tasks, like understanding natural language and recognizing images. It’s perfect for creating chatbots, customer service agents, or getting descriptions of media like songs or movies — or it can be used to create intelligent bots for games such as trivia, pong, and tic-tac-toe.

What you can build:

  • Create a personal chatbot that can answer questions about your interests, hobbies, and other information.

  • Develop a customer service agent that can handle basic inquiries and support tickets.

  • Build a music or movie recommendation app that uses ChatGPT to generate descriptions and summaries.

ADSB Exchange

ADSB Exchange is a free service that provides real-time data on flight positions, altitude, and speed from all around the world. Use this API to get the last known location of an aircraft — or for any aircraft or plane prompt you might have. 

What you can build:

  • Develop an app that tracks specific flights in real-time, similar to FlightRadar24.

  • Build a game that simulates air traffic control, using ADSB Exchange to display the locations of planes. 

  • Create a travel app that displays flight routes and schedules using ADSB Exchange data.


IPAPI is an API that lets you look up the geographic location of an IP address, which can be useful for tracking website visitors or blocking unwanted traffic.

What you can build:

  • Develop an app that shows the location and IP address of a user.

  • Build a security app that alerts users if there are any unauthorized access attempts from unknown IP addresses.

  • Create an analytics app that shows where website traffic is coming from using IPAPI data.

Google Maps

Google Maps is a popular mapping service that lets you display maps and satellite imagery, and even get street-view images. You can embed Google Maps into your website or mobile app using their API.

What you can build:

  • Build a map app that shows the locations of restaurants, cafes, and bars nearby.

  • Create a rideshare app that integrates with Google Maps to display pickup and drop-off locations.

  • Develop a real estate app that shows listings on a map.


Giphy provides a fun and easy-to-use search engine and API for finding and sharing animated GIFs.

What you can build:

  • Build a messaging app that allows users to send and receive animated GIFs.

  • Create a social media platform that allows users to share their favorite GIFs.

  • Develop a news app that uses GIFs to illustrate news stories.

Google Search

Google Search lets you look up information on the web (obviously). You can use the Google Search API to integrate search functionality into your own website or app.

What you can build:

  • Build an SEO tool that analyzes website rankings and search engine results.

  • Create a marketing app that tracks social media and website mentions.

  • Develop a news aggregator that displays the top headlines for a given keyword.


OpenWeather provides APIs for getting weather data and forecasts for any location in the world. You can use this data for a variety of purposes, like building weather apps or analyzing weather patterns.

What you can build:

  • Build a weather app that shows current conditions and forecasts.

  • Create a travel app that displays weather conditions for a user's destination.

  • Develop an event planning app that shows weather forecasts for the date and location of an event.


You can access Wikipedia content through their API and use it to power your own knowledge-based applications.

What you can build:

  • Build a trivia app that generates questions based on random Wikipedia articles, or not so random ones.

  • Create an educational app that allows users to search for and learn about any topic on Wikipedia.

  • Develop a news aggregator that displays articles from Wikipedia on a given topic.

And now, drumroll please… these are the two newest APIs on LITERALLY ANYTHING:


SendGrid is an email delivery platform that lets you send transactional and marketing emails programmatically. Their API provides an easy way to integrate email functionality into your own application.

What you can build:

  • Build a marketing app that sends newsletters and promotional emails to subscribers.

  • Create a reminder app that sends daily emails with reminders and to-do lists.

  • Develop a support app that sends automated emails to users with support tickets.


Cryptocurrency APIs provide data on cryptocurrency prices, exchange rates, and other important metrics. You can use this data for building trading apps or performing analysis on cryptocurrency markets.

What you can build:

  • Build a finance app that displays live crypto prices and charts.

  • Create a portfolio app that allows users to track their investments in different cryptocurrencies.

  • Develop a news app that displays articles about the latest developments in the crypto world.
