iTunes Connect Report Download

I dabble a little in iPhone development and Apple collects lots of interesting information about downloads on my behalf which is really useful. It's a real shame that they provide no automated way of retrieving this information. No API and no option to have it emailed which is slightly inconvenient.

Although there are some paid and free options to obtain the data (or at least there were until Apple updated their website a while ago) as far as I know they all have to manually scrape it from the iTunes Connect website.

As I've been learning Clojure recently I thought it was a great opportunity for a mini-project to automate this process. The financial reports are the easiest to get as they are on 'real' pages.

Anyway if you'd like to automate the retrieval of the financial reports then give my script a go.

You can download it from:

Let me know how you get on.
