It wasn’t easy to decide which services should be used in the SemantAPI toolkit. In the end, I think we chose the 6 best sentiment APIs on the market, all of which claim the highest accuracy of sentiment analysis out of the box. The APIs featured in SemantAPI include:

  • AlchemyAPI.
  • Semantria.
  • ChatterBox.
  • Viralheat.
  • Bitext.
