        fmt.Println(app.Title, "by", app.Developer, app.URL)
    }
}

Get reviews

Retrieves a page of reviews for a specific application.

Note that this method returns reviews in a specific language (english by default), so you need to try different languages to get more reviews. Also, the counter displayed in the Google Play page refers to the total number of 1-5 stars ratings the application has, not the written reviews count. So if the app has 100k ratings, don't expect to get 100k reviews by using this method.

package main

import (
    "fmt"

    "github.com/n0madic/google-play-scraper/pkg/reviews"
)

func main() {
    r := reviews.New("com.activision.callofduty.shooter", reviews.Options{
        Number: 100,
    })

    err := r.Run()
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    for _, review := range r.Results {
        fmt.Println(review.Score, review.Text)
    }
}

Get similar

Returns a list of similar apps to the one specified.

package main

import (
    "fmt"

    "github.com/n0madic/google-play-scraper/pkg/similar"
)

func main() {
    sim := similar.New("com.android.chrome", similar.Options{
        Number: 100,
    })
    err := sim.Run()
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    for _, app := range sim.Results {
        fmt.Println(app.Title, app.URL)
    }
}

Get suggest

Given a string returns up to five suggestion to complete a search query term.

package main

import (
    "fmt"

    "github.com/n0madic/google-play-scraper/pkg/suggest"
)

func main() {

        Country:  "us",
        Language: "us",
    })
    if err != nil {
