App Data API: Overview
App Data API will help you to obtain data on app rankings, ratings, reviews, app collections featuring the product, and more. This data is especially useful for informing your product development roadmap, automating review management, and understanding the market.
We have selected the top two mobile application search platforms:
• Using Google App Data API, you can get data for any app published on Google Play.
• With Apple App Data API, you can collect data on apps from the App Store.
We plan to add more data sources in the future.
The returned results are specific to the indicated search engine (Google or Apple), language, and location parameters. We emulate the set location and search engine with the highest accuracy so that the results you receive will match the actual search results for the specified parameters at the time of task setting.

App Data API functions
App Data API provides search engine results with two standard functions: Advanced and HTML.
The Advanced function provides a full overview of data based on the specified keyword, app ID, or app collection category, as well as the language and location.
The HTML function provides a raw HTML page for the specified app name or identifier, language and location.
Note: HTML endpoints are supported in Google App Data API only.
App Data API supports only the Standard method of data retrieval. It requires making separate POST and GET requests. Using this method, you can retrieve the results after our system collects them.
Alternatively, you can specify
postback_url when setting a task, and we will notify you on completion of tasks or send the results to you respectively. Note that if you use the
postback_url field, you should also indicate the function that will be applied for data retrieval:
If you do not specify
postback_url, you can receive the list of id for all completed tasks using the ‘Tasks Ready’ endpoint. It is designed to provide you with the list of completed tasks, which haven’t been collected yet. Then, you can retrieve the results using the ‘Task GET’ endpoint.
Learn more about task completion and obtaining a list of completed tasks in this help center article.
You can send up to 2000 POST and GET API calls per minute in total, with each POST call containing no more than 100 tasks. Contact us if you would like to raise the limit.
Priorities and cost
The cost of using App Data API endpoints depends on the selected priority of task execution.
The Standard method has two different priorities that stand for the relative speed of task execution and have different prices:
1. Normal priority;
2. High priority.
The cost can be calculated on the Pricing page. You can check your spending in your account dashboard or by making a separate call to the User Data endpoint.
