What’s an API? Wikipedia has an answer:

An application programming interface (API) is a source code interface that a computer application, operating system or library provides to support requests for services to be made of it by a computer program.[1] An API is similar to an application binary interface (ABI) in that it specifies details of how two independent computer programs can interact, however an API is typically defined at a higher level (i.e., in terms of a programming language that can be compiled when an application is built, rather than an explicit low level description of how data is laid out in memory).
