Using the AppBrain API¶
The AppBrain API is a web service that allows automated interaction with AppBrain.
How to use¶
Your programs can use the API by sending HTTP requests to
The syntax is explained in the AppBrain API specification.
On that page you can also immediately try out the API if you have an AppBrain developer account with API access.
Some requests require a developer account with API access, for which the parameter
apikey must be included for authentication.
If you have a developer account, see the dashboard for more information.
If you are not an app developer, and would like to use this service, please email us at email@example.com.
By default, responses are sent in JSON format.
If you want the response to be in XML format instead, then please add
format=xml to your request.
You can search and browse apps and fetch information about apps using the AppBrain API for Google Play app information. This information includes an app’s description, icon or feature graphic URL, used libraries and a lot more.
With a developer account, using the info API to fetch data about your own apps is always free. On top of that, you can use up to 500 free API credits per month. For more API credits you need a paid subscription. See AppBrain API pricing for more information.
With a developer account, you can use the AppBrain API to create, update and get information about your promotion campaigns. For a more detailed explanation, see Using the AppBrain API for promotion campaigns.
