Wanna get started scraping the store data? Easy! Follow these steps:

  1. Get Your App's ID
    Make sure you have the app's GUID (in full format - 12345678-ABCD-1234-ABCD-1234567890AB) or, for Windows 8 apps, you can opt for the Package Family Name (PFN) (e.g. 12345PublisherName.AppName_a1b2c23d4e5).
  2. Decide What You Want
    You can get three things from this API - full store metadata (in JSON format), app icons, or app screenshots. There may be more to come later, so keep checking back.
  3. Grab The Info!
    Follow the API reference to learn how to retrieve the data. That's it! If you have any feedback, wanna make a feature request, or are working on something cool, please drop me a line at zack@mshank.com. Have fun and good luck!
