Softonic API

Request format

If you want to fetch data from the the Softonic API you need to invoke an API Method which is an URL followed by your own API KEY

The request format looks like this:

//api.softonic.com/<language>/<method>/<id>.json?key=<your_api_key>

A simple example could be:

//api.softonic.com/en/program_getInfo/10861.json?key=ABCDEFG

The decomposition of this request URL is as follows:

  • <language>: en: Returned content will be English
  • <method>: program_getInfo: Retrieve information for a specific program
  • <id>: 10861: The ID of the program we want to retrieve
  • .json: Because we want the data in json, but it could be xml too.
  • <key>: ABCDEFG: A fake API key (does not work)
