    Search Apple App Store and Google Play Store

    I am working on an Excel spreadsheet and would like the user to be apple to type an App name in a cell and the cell will search for the App on the Apple App Store (or Google play) depending on which cell they are using. Do not know if this is possible. Below is a little bit more information on what I am trying to accomplish (do not even know if possible). Thanks for any help!

    Cell B2
    Which IOS App do you need installed?

    Cell C2
    {user types in name of app and it searches}

    Cell B3
    Which Android App do you need installed?

    Cell C3
    {user types in name of app and it searches}

    I know I could just have the user type in their name of the app...but what I am sure will happen is there will be multiple apps with similar name and that will cause confusion.
    Another option I was thinking about is having the user go to the Itunes or Google Play store and copy the URL from the actual app into Excel...but this will require a lot of instruction on the cut/paste process.
    I am open to any other ideas

    Thanks,
    Markus

    For google, there is no direct API, but there are some unofficial API that allows you to search Playstore.

    Though I've never tested it, so use it at your own risk.

    As for iOS... may be try.
