Distimo has launched the first free and open API for app store data
The Distimo API gives anyone access to downloads, app sales revenue, in-app revenue, ranking, and reviews for every major app store worldwide. All the data can be sorted by day, week, month or quarter, from the Apple App Store, Google Play, Amazon Appstore, Windows Phone Marketplace, Samsung Apps, the Apple Mac Store, the Windows Store, Blackberry World, and Nokia Ovi Store. It provides competitive intelligence that app developers and marketers can use to inform their own user acquisition and monetisation campaigns, often in real time.
There is a restriction on the data. “Our Distimo AppIQ data, which allows anyone to track estimated downloads and revenues for any app, is also available through the same API as well, but AppIQ data requires a paid subscription,” Remco van den Elzen, Distimo’s co-founder and chief commercial officer says.
