WE IMPROVED THE ACCURACY OF OUR EMAIL API BY 30%

During the last few months, we revised and completely redesigned the backend of our email interface in 3 steps. With the new interface it is now possible to break up email addresses that do not have a clearly distinguishable separator between the first and last name. Before the update, names had to be separated by a dot or hyphen for the email address to be properly broken up. With the new interface, email addresses such as kathleenevans44@gmail.com can now be broken up without any problems. How do we do this: We implemented a multi-stage process using machine learning to check the frequency of any possible first and last name combination to provide the best possible result for each case. Internal tests and analysed have shown that result quality improved by more than 30%.
GET https://gender-api.com/get?email=kathleenevans44@gmail.com&key=<your private server key>
The request will be returned as:
{"email":"kathleenevans44@gmail.com","lastname":"evans","mailprovider":"gmail","name":"kathleen","gender":"female","samples":533,"accuracy":99,"duration":"211ms"}

OUR SPLIT API LEFT ITS BETA STATE

After a year of testing, our split API left its beta state. The API was constantly improved since we first launched it with some of our biggest customers a year ago. The API can split full names (first and last name) into its parts. If you have a combined field for first and last name on your page, use this API to extract the parts:
GET https://gender-api.com/get?split=theresa%20miller&key=<your private server key>
The request will be returned as:
{"last_name":"Miller","first_name":"Theresa","strict":false,"name":"theresa","gender":"female","samples":8065,"accuracy":98,"duration":"56ms"}

BULK PROCESS BIG DATASETS WITH OUR EXCEL UPLOAD FEATURE

We added support for Excel files. Upload any CSV or Excel file containing a first name column to your account. For a better determination result, simply add a country column to your dataset. It is not necessary to name the columns accordingly in advance. Our wizzard guides you through the process and lets you choose which column contains which token, first name or country included.

WE ADDED A MONTHLY USAGE STATISTIC TO YOUR ACCOUNT

In September we started to collect information on your data usage and put them into a statistic to give you a detailed view on your monthly usage. To view your usage statistic just sign in to your account. You'll get a detailed view on how many of your requests you used, and how many of them were left at the end of the month.

DOWNLOAD YOUR INVOICES IN YOUR ACCOUNT

It is now possible to download invoices directly in your account. Until now, invoices were sent to you by email. Since many customers lost this email or deleted it accidentally, we decided to add a new navigation point within your account called "Invoices". Here you will find all your newly created invoices.
