Unified Functional Testing (UFT). This is a popular tool with a commercial license, which provides a full set of functions for testing API and web-services. It also allows testing GUI of mobile, web, and desktop apps on any platform.
Katalon Studio. This is a great test automation tool for web and mobile apps. Web-services are also on this list. It is suitable both for experienced testers and beginners. The license is free.
