T Cloud computing is a unique IT paradigm that is fast gaining popularity in organizations and enterprises. The cloud has made it possible to store vast amount of data based on infrastructure provided by cloud service providers. The users are able to scale storage up or down on demand. The users are also able to utilize applications already deployed on the cloud by the cloud service providers. Other cloud service providers such as OpenNebula, CloudStack and OpenStack have made it possible to develop applications and deploy them on the cloud. Application programming interfaces (APIs) are available to guarantee such deployment. As the name implies, APIs serve as interfaces between programs. The interface is usually between a software developer and software developer’s application. Basically, the API allows one software to access some functionalities of another software. This paper examines present trends in the area of API and provides a guide for future research. Papers published in journals, conferences, white papers and those published in reputable magazines were analysed. The expected result at the end of this review is the identification of trends in API. This will be of benefit to prospective cloud users and even cloud providers.
