Apple gives MacTalk an affiliate link for the Apple online store - you probably already knew this. But they also have an affiliate scheme for the iTunes Store and App Store! Due to this affiliate scheme, they also made a sweet RSS feed generator.

So if you want an RSS feed of the top selling apps and the top free apps, check this link out, where you can generate an RSS feed for the top 10 to 300 apps in all or some of the App Store categories. A great way to keep up to date with what's popular on the store.


Visit the App Store RSS Feed Generator now! (http://ax.itunes.apple.com/rss/?output=lm&partnerId=1002&partnerUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Es2d6%2Ecom%2Fx%2F%3F x%3Dc%26z%3Ds%26v%3D1121189%26t%3D&cc=AU)

(I've asked Apple for a "new apps" RSS feed, but I don't think they'll listen to me, hah)

yeah and I tried adding this to our site (under our affiliate account of course) but it lists everything so the link is a much better idea....kinda seems a bit half baked when you generate a banner from it.

Can i get this to somehow show me JUST iPad apps? Would be an awesome workaround until the flood gates open on the app store...

You can use the appshopper (http://appshopper.com) RSS feeds to see new apps and updates. I was watching the trickle of new iPad apps this way when they opened the store, until several hundred started getting approved a day :-)

Of course this doesn't contain the affiliate link, but you could probably work around that if you wanted to embed it in wordpress etc
