"I am keeping IQFeed, much better reliabilty than *******. I may refer a few other people in the office to switch as well." - Comment from Don
"I had always used ******* but for the past 2 weeks have been trying DTN IQFeed. Customer support has been extraordinary. They call just to make sure your problem hasn't recurred." - Comment from Public Forum
"I ran your IQFeed DDE vs. my broker vs. a level II window for some slow-moving options. I would see the level II quote change, then your feed update instantaneously. My broker's DDE, however, would take as much as 30 seconds to update. I am not chasing milliseconds, but half a minute is unacceptable." - Comment from Rob
"I am very pleased with the DTNIQ system for quotes and news." - Comment from Larry
"With HUGE volume on AAPL and RIMM for 2 days, everyone in a trading room was whining about freezes, crashes and lag with *******, RealTick, TS and Cyber. InvestorRT with IQFeed was rock solid. I mean SOLID!" - Comment from Public IRC Chat
"And by the way, have to say this. I love the IQFeed software. It's rock solid and it has a really nice API." - Comment from Thomas via RT Chat
"You are either overstaffed or people just don't have problems with your feed because customer support always answers the phone quickly." - Comment from Jay via Email
"Interactive Brokers tick data was inconsistent, so I have switched to using DTN exclusively. It is great to no longer have to worry about my datafeed all day long." - Comment from Philippe
"For anyone considering using DTN.IQ for a data feed, my experience with the quality of data and the tech support has been very positive." - Comment from Public Forum
"I "bracket trade" all major news releases and I have not found one lag or glitch with DTN.IQ feed. I am very comfortable with their feed under all typical news conditions (Fed releases, employment numbers, etc)." - Comment from Public Forum

Would anyone be interested in helping me develop an API? I have had some trouble and am looking for someone who is experienced in working with IQFeed.

Download Fundamental, Summary, and Historic data for a large data set. (to be scheduled and automated)
Maintain a current list of available Listed Markets, Security Types, SIC codes, NAICS codes, & Dynamic Fieldsets to easily modify what data is downloaded and for what data set.
Track what symbols get added/removed.
Upload the data directly into a MSSQL database.

Those are the basics

I have an app which download and parses the mktsymbols_v2.txt file:

https://github.com/rburkholder/trade-frame/tree/master/IQFeedMarketSymbols

I've found some SIC and NAICS code files which I use to find certain groupings:

https://github.com/rburkholder/trade-frame/tree/master/x64

I have a set of tools I use for querying various IQFeed based streams: news, history, live quotes (fundamental data found in the live quote streams)

https://github.com/rburkholder/trade-frame/tree/master/lib/TFIQFeed

There is some one else's tool which provides easy db access to mysql:

https://www.webtoolkit.eu/wt/doc/tutorial/dbo.html

This is all C++. Someone else in the forums has some C# libraries. I don't know what else is out there.

Do you need specific development environment, or do you just need an application rather than an API?

IQML - IQFeed-MATLAB connector

I can do all this in Matlab, using the IQML (IQFeed-Matlab) connector.
I have experience with everything you listed.
If you have Matlab then you'd be able to use/adapt/maintain the code by yourself.
If you don't have Matlab, the program could be compiled as a standalone executable.

Contact me to discuss further, if you're interested.

I think I should have used the term Application instead of API, no specific development environment is needed
