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 https://api.appbrain.com. 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 query parameters
t 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 fetch information about an app using the AppBrain API. 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 make up to 500 free API calls per month. For more API calls you need a paid subscription. See Retrieving app information with the AppBrain API for more information.
