This URL today: https://blockchain.info/q/getblockcount

Was giving the error "Too many requests".

Any alternative out there to get the blockcount via an API? Thanks

Another public API I found for this:

https://blockexplorer.com/api/status?q=getBlockCount

But the best one so far, is blockR.io because it even has testnet support:

MainNet: http://btc.blockr.io/api/v1/coin/info

TestNet: http://tbtc.blockr.io/api/v1/coin/info

You can use our API:

Get latest block (total blocks count )
