    Hey all - part of the app which I'm developing requires me to grab an icon and description for any given app from the App Store.

    For example, if I wanted to grab the icon and description for the Facebook app, how can I go about getting this?

    Any ideas?

    Right click on almost anything in iTunes, and it will tell you what URL is used by that button. Create your own HTTP request using that URL and the iTunes user agent and feed that to a network request. Parse the resulting HTML.
