Mining App Store Rankings For Popular Apps Worldwide

On March 10, 2009

Manually tracking the popularity ranking of an app in iTunes App Stores worldwide is cumbersome. Ben Chatelain of (Profile) has written a script that automatically extracts this information and has generously shared the source code for anyone to use.

The script works by downloading iTunes’ top-100 lists for every country. It reports an app’s worldwide ranking on a country-by-country basis. One caveat: the script only works for apps that are in either the top-100 overall, or in the top-100 for a particular category.
