Free API Calls
FastNZB.info offers free API calls for users. It allows 50 of them per day for free, with 50 NZB downloads, as well. It’s based in Newznab++. In fact, the operators of the site say that they crated FastNZB.info because there is a lack of free API sites on the Internet and they want to remedy that.
With any site offering something for free, however, someone’s got to be paying the bills and that comes down to advertisers on FastNZB. If you want to give them some support on the site, be sure to click on some of the banners and to see what their sponsors have to offer, because they’re not charging for the service and, obviously, it costs money to make that service available.

Inside FastNZB Screenshot
FastNZB.info offers something quite valuable in providing 50 free API calls per day. The content might be mostly German, but the site constantly looks into the binary groups and finds new content to download, so there should be plenty available that’s worth taking a look at.
It’s nice to see a site offering something to the USENET community, particularly something so useful, for no charge. If you’re going to take a look at the site, remember the banners, because that’s how these folks are managing to keep the site up and running and available to all.
