Overview

The AppFollow API provides two methods for exporting ratings: 9. Ratings and 28. Ratings Export. You can retrieve incremental and total rating data.  Below, we'll cover the differences between these methods and help determine which one is better to use depending on your goal.

What are Incremental and Total (Cumulative) Ratings

If you need to know how many stars an app received on a certain date or during a specific timeframe (week, month) you need to export the incremental ratings. 

The total is the sum of your app’s lifetime rating on the specified dates. If the timeframe is specified (week, month), it shows the app’s total average rating at the end of the selected timeframe. 

When using the API, the type of the rating is set through an additional parameter – type – which can be set to total (Cumulative data) or diff (Incremental data).

For iOS apps, if the parameter type is not specified, by default method 9. Ratings provides the total ratings (Cumulative data) and method 28. Ratings Export provides diff ratings (Incremental data).
For Android apps, to get the total ratings (Cumulative data), you should use method 9. Ratings with the additional parameter type — total and specify the country. To get the incremental ratings, you should use method 28. Ratings Export, only worldwide data is available (the country parameter is not required).

API Methods for Ratings Export

9. Ratings

You can use this method to get the Total ratings (additional parameter type=total) for App Store and Google Play apps. 
To retrieve the Incremental data, you can use this method only for the App Store apps (additional parameter type=relative). This method allows getting Incremental data only on a certain date (additional parameter date) or for the last 31 days by default if the date parameter is not set.
To get the Incremental data for a Google Play app, please use method 28. Ratings Export.

Required parameters:

  • ext_id — app external ID:

    for App Store — this is 9-10 digits identification number;
    for Google Play — this is bundle name;
    for Microsoft Store — this is 12 characters consisting of letters and numbers;
    for Amazon — this is 10 characters consisting of capital letters and numbers.

Additional parameters:

  • date — date in format: YYYY-MM-DD
  • country — country code e.g. us (for App Store or Microsoft Store or Amazon apps only) Full list

  • type  total (Cumulative data) DEFAULT, relative

 

28. Ratings export

Required parameters:

  • COLLECTION_NAME — name of the workspace your app is added (part of the url);

  • ext_id — app external ID:

    for App Store — this is 9-10 digits identification number;
    for Google Play — this is bundle name.

Additional parameters:

  • country — country code e.g. us Full list

  • from — date in format: YYYY-MM-DD (used with 'to' parameter)

  • to — date in format: YYYY-MM-DD (used with 'from' parameter)

  • period  day, week or month

  • version — app version (for App Store apps or Google Play with Google Play Console integration) e.g. 1.1.1
