GooglePlay::Apps - Google Play Apps Parser


GooglePlay::Apps Parser Overview

GooglePlay::AppsGooglePlay::Apps - parses data about applications from Google Play. Automated collection of all data: name, rating, author, description, link to the application and price.

You can use automatic query replication, substitution of subqueries from files, enumeration of alphanumeric combinations and lists to get the maximum possible number of results. Using results filtering, you can immediately clean up the result by removing all unnecessary garbage (using minus-words).

The A-Parser functionality allows you to save the parsing settings of the GooglePlay::Apps parser for further use (presets), set a parsing schedule, and much more.

Saving results is possible in the form and structure that you need, thanks to the built-in powerful Template Toolkit template engine, which allows you to apply additional logic to the results and output data in various formats, including JSON, SQL and CSV.

Query examples

As queries, you need to specify phrases for which the search will be performed in GooglePlay, for example:


Query substitutions

You can use built-in macros to automatically substitute subqueries from files, for example, we want to add some list of other words to each query, we will specify several main queries:

tower defense

In the query format, we specify a macro for substituting additional words from the keywords.txt file, this method allows you to increase the variability of queries many times over:

{subs:keywords} $query 

This macro will create as many additional queries as there are in the file for each original search query, which in total will give [number of original queries] x [number of queries in the Keywords file] = [total number of queries] as a result of the macro operation.

For example, if the keywords.txt file contains:


In the end, the substitution macro will turn 3 main queries into 6:

free fantasy
online fantasy
free tower defense
online tower defense
free rpg

Result output options

A-Parser supports flexible result formatting thanks to the built-in Template Toolkit template engine, which allows it to output results in any form, as well as in a structured form, for example, CSV or JSON.

Output to CSV table

General result format:

[% FOREACH i IN p1.serp; 
tools.CSVline(, i.rating,, i.price);

Initial text:


The Template Toolkit template engine is used in the General Result Format to output the serp array in a FOREACH loop.
What is the general result format.

In the results file name, simply change the file extension to csv.

To make the "Initial text" option available in the Task Editor, you need to activate "More options". In the "Initial text" field, enter the column names separated by commas and make the second row empty.
