iTunes Search API


The Search API allows you to place search fields in your website to search for content within the iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks Store and Mac App Store. You can search for a variety of content; including apps, iBooks, movies, podcasts, music, music videos, audiobooks, and TV shows. You can also call an ID-based lookup request to create mappings between your content library and the digital catalog. Developers may use promotional content in the API, including previews of songs, music videos, album art and App icons only to promote store content and not for entertainment purposes. Use of sound samples and other assets from the API must be proximate to a store badge. Terms and conditions apply.

The Affiliate Program allows you to earn a commission on qualifying revenue generated by clicks initiated from your website or app into the iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks Store, and Mac App Store. For more information on the Affiliate Program, see
