APSW stands for Another Python SQLite Wrapper. APSW supports CPython 3.6 onwards.
APSW is a Python wrapper for the SQLite embedded relational database engine. It focuses translating between the complete SQLite C API and Python's C API, letting you get the most out of SQLite from Python.
It is recommended to use the builtin sqlite3 module if you want SQLite to be interchangeable with the other database drivers.
Use APSW when you want to use SQLite fully, and have an improved developer experience. The documentation has a section on the differences between APSW and sqlite3.
There is a tour and example code using APSW at https://rogerbinns.github.io/apsw/example.html
