Access to App Store data?

is there some code in python so that I can read data from my account of the App Store, for example, my purchased apps that are not installed on the iPad, or saved apps on the wish list?

every application can register custom URL scheme on iOS. And any other app (like Pythonista) can use this URL scheme to test if application is installed or not via canOpenURL. This was unlimited prior to iOS 9. But Apple didn't like it, because there were many apps that did track what user has or hasn't installed, etc. To make it harder for those people, iOS 9 changed policy for
canOpenURL. Any application can still use
canOpenURLto test if the application is installed or not, but it must include these custom URL schemes in the
LSApplicationQueriesSchemeskey). Basically Apple is checking this during review. This also means that if you'd like to test if application is installed or not from Python script (= from Pythonista), Pythonista must have all these custom URL schemes defined in the
Info.plistfile, which is not possible. Unfortunately the answer is no, you can't do it.
Answer to your remaining questions is same - no, it's not possible.
