Announced earlier this morning via the mailshot seen above, Apple has today released an “auto-ingest” tool for sales and trends recorded through iTunes Connect. Java-based and available from developer.apple.com, the new tool lets you as a developer automatically retrieve daily and weekly reports on your apps.
We are pleased to announce the availability of the auto-ingest tool, a new tool that lets you automatically retrieve your daily and weekly reports from the Sales and Trends module. The auto-ingest tool is a Java-based script that will run on any operating system that supports Java 1.6 or later. Before you begin using the tool, we strongly urge you to read the App Store Sales and Trends Guide and note the following:
– Use of this tool is monitored.
– If your system will be set up to automatically pull daily or weekly reports, allow 15-minute intervals between pulls.
See the App Store Sales and Trends Guide for more information.
