Project Description

Google Play API

Still in development. Downloading may not always work.


pip install finsky


finsky requires authentication parameters, specified in a YAML configuration file. Your profile.yaml file might look like

android_id: 4c2d771066bd23bc
auth_token: AUGBQrE3ETKnpMtiX6F3Fss-clxmlVJAww9j0L0F2G0bOXLIZN7o2MMNkce15x6g4w8Ca3q2ojRb0ImZardJOUNnJbP_0LKeT1G9ydg41c_pdKb4CkdBsoUd-svTckM-4Rs95HLr-zd7r0sGpa9VFjtavGSihEvUPwIBC5qiiObIsjlCoGgP8j0DOYimRoVUaJvzKFT4aHpxm2GmaNuMZwnUL7DMTPxiPEkCa5qIExZIQQA6--J2s8OzuIrW87goRhBkZ690rs9gMxmjZNjEBVg4Q6SQnMM6XNo5R_ipV1ciYJrMrnX18eETuUHH9vdo-cFRN2ZEJGcOfrFLqB3S6WL8btI0O_byXJXcI_RHyYADnI1_sQBUjV

Then for example, you can download snapchat with

finsky download profile.yaml

Note is the app ID you’ll see when you browse to snapchat on the play store.

By default this will download the app to This can be changed with the --out option.

Why the name?

The word finsky appears a lot in the Google Play APK source code, so I guessed it has some internal significance.
