API usage is FREE. As long as APIs are used in moderation. For example 20 times a day from one client. This way you can see how APIs work. Click one of the API sample links below and it will just work in the browser as it is.

You could do the followings –

  • Programmatically fetch information on any name.
  • Create better forms by skipping the gender question. Use our API to auto add gender.
  • Create interesting insight over existing data. For example how many users are ‘male’
  • Make creative Apps & websites that consumes our REST APIs.

If you intend to use APIs for a rigorous data analysis, or more frequent use, please reach out to us for your own personal API Key.
