Apple Launches New ‘Auto-Ingest’ Tool for iTunes Connect Sales & Trends Reports

Apple began emailing iOS app developers today to tell them all about a new “auto-ingest” tool for retrieving iTunes connect Sales & Trends data. The new tool is Java-based and will run on any operating system, giving developers quick and easy access to their daily or weekly sales reports.

Apple’s email reads:

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.
Apple points to the iTunes Connect Sales and Trends Guide (PDF) for more information.

    I’m always surprised by the lack of stats tools Apple provides in return for their 30% cut. Hopefully this tool improves that situation.

    The apple tool is great. It however lacks the possibility to download all missing reports – it only downloads 1 either latest or specified report. I’ve created a Bash script to automaticaly download all missing reports. You can get it from: http://ipaddevzone.com/cs/bash
