is there a way to know the list of all the applications at app world

Hi, expert, we want to find a way to loop through all the apps at the app world once a while to get a snapshot of all app world applications. This information could be used to prepopulate some information (from our cache, so performance would be better since right now there is no API to query information of app world application in real time) on our web site if users chooses to install an app from the Blackberry app world. 

 

One way I could think of is to loop through the app id since all apps have the following format URL:

http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/<appid>

 

Do we know the range of valid app id? Is there a place to look for that list? If you know a better way to do, please let us know.

 

Thanks in advance.

You could just loop from 0 to 99999 and skip those that return a 404 error on the URL.
