"I've never had DTN go out on me since switching. ******* would go down a couple times every month when I was using them." - Comment from Bryce in AL.
"Everything is working great with the API. I love it." - Comment from Calvin
"DTN has never given me problems. It is incredibly stable. In fact I've occasionally lost the data feed from Interactive Brokers, but still been able to trade because I'm getting good data from DTN." - Comment from Leighton
"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
"Very impressed with the quality of your feed - ******* is a real donkey in comparison." - Comment from A.C. via Email
"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
"I noticed that ******* quotes locked up shortly after the interest rate announcement yesterday while yours stayed stable." - Comment from Ron in Utah
"I just wanted to let u know that your data feed/service is by far the best!!! Your unfiltered tick data is excellent for reading order flow and none of your competitors delivers this quality of data!" - Comment from Peter via Email
"I just wanted to say how happy I am with your service. I was able to download the API docs last week and I was able to replicate Interactive Brokers historical bar queries and realtime bar queries over the weekend. That was about one of the fastest integrations that I've ever done and it works perfectly!!!!" - Comment from Jason via Email
"Its working FABULOUSLY for me!! Holy cow...there has been so much I've been missing lately, and with this feed and Linnsoft software...I'm in the game now." - Comment from Chris R.

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
