An open-source API for the Android Market
This is not an official api. I'm not afiliated to google in any way.

This library allow you to ask directly google's official android market servers for information, search for apps, ...

Main target is java but it can be easily adapted to other languages since it's Google ProtoBuf based.

There is a Ruby port by jberkel here and a PHP port by splitfeed here. These is also a crawler on top of this library by Raunak Gupta here.

For any help using this API please use the google group HERE, no direct help request please, i won't answer.


No specific requirement, it use for communication with the google market server, that's all. So it should run without problem on Google App Engine or in an Android app. Include androidmarketapi-X.Y.jar and protobuf-java-X.Y.Z.jar in your classpath and you're good to go.
