Right here! See links below to download App Store rankings for over 50,000 apps.
The iTunes App Store is changing rapidly. There are thousands of new apps every week, and the number of new publishers is keeping pace. At the same time, apps disappear from the app store every day. Apps move up and down in popularity, change price, and even shift from one category to another. It's a churning urn of burning funk!
We have lots of App Store data and we love digging around in it. Some of you find this stuff really interesting too, so we offer you some raw data in the hope that you will find it useful, and that you'll derive something interesting and share it with us. We've packaged up two recent snapshots of our ranking data from the US iTunes App Store, one week apart.

If you're unfamiliar with the structure of the App Store, these notes may be helpful:
- Apps are organized into categories
- The Games category has a number of sub-categories
- Apps can belong to multiple categories
- Rankings are relative to other apps in the same category
- There are other ranked lists that contain apps across multiple categories
The data is de-normalized, and is presented in as simple a format as possible. Each record consists of:
- Category name
