Usage

Begin by starting a new session and entering your google credentials.

session = MarketSession()
session.login("user@gmail.com", "password")

Search for "bankdroid" on the market and print the first result

results = session.searchApp("bankdroid")
app = results[0]
pprint(app)

which prints:

{'apptype': 1L,
 'creator': u'Nullbyte',
 'creatorid': u'Nullbyte',
 'id': u'-4924482311466714951',
 'packagename': u'com.liato.bankdroid',

                  'screenshotscount': 2L
...
}

Print the last two comments for the app

results = session.getComments(app["id"])
pprint(results[:2])

and you get:

  'authorname': u'Vincent',
  'creationtime': 1299254796868L,

  'authorname': u'primetomas',
  'creationtime': 1299101108485L,
  'rating': 5L,
  'text': u'This is awesome. Keep up the good work!'}]

Download and save the first screenshot to disk:

data = session.getImage(app["id"])
f = open("screenshot.png", "wb")
f.write(data)
f.close()

Download and save the app icon to disk:

data = session.getImage(app["id"], imagetype=market_proto.GetImageRequest.ICON)
f = open("icon.png", "wb")
f.write(data)
f.close()

Get all the categories and subcategories:

results = session.getCategories()
pprint(results)

Prints:

[{'apptype': 1L,
  'subcategories': [{'apptype': 1L,
                     'subtitle': u'Pandora Radio, Google Maps, Gmail',
                     'title': u'All applications'},
                    {'apptype': 1L,
                     'categoryid': u'BOOKS_AND_REFERENCE',
                     'subtitle': u'Google Sky Map, Dictionary.com, Bible',
                     'title': u'Books & Reference'},
