Cute Android: Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Android-market-api (An open-source API for the Android Market)

Description
Android-market-api is an open source Android API for the Android Market. Its main target is java but it can be easily adapted to other languages since it’s Google ProtoBuf based. No specific requirement, it use java.net.URL 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. Current progress include:
* You can browse market with any carrier or locale you want.
* Search for apps using keywords or package name.
* Retrieve an app info using an app ID.
* Retrieve comments using an app ID.
* Get PNG screenshots and icon

About authentication

A google account is required. You can use the login method with a valid login/password pair or provide an authsub token for service “android”.

See Auth for installed apps for more info about authsub. You can also get a valid authsub token from an android device using the unofficial google clientlogin api for android (client.jar), example coming soon.
