I've built a little workflow that opens the Mac App Store and searches for the query.

 

--- Update ---

Another update, you can now change the search language by using the "interactive preferences".

 

By default, the US store is searched. Change this by entering 'apps-pref lang <new language>' into Alfred.

 

Get the new version here: http://cl.ly/2q3K1L1L3m1h

The iTunes API does return some icon URLs, but atm Alfred only accepts icons that are on the local drive.

I could download those icons into some kind of cache folder, but that would take time, especially on slow connections, and since users probably won't see the same app very often, i don't think that's worth it.

As soon as Alfred supports http urls for icons, i will of course add this :)

As the UK uses 'en' as well how can I change it as it still searches the US site?

 

EDIT: forget this tried 'GB' and it worked :)

Thanks for sharing your workflow.

I changed in the appsearch.py en to de for Germany

search_lang = 'de'

 

But alfred still shows the $ price.

 

Any chance to change this? what am I doing wrong?  :rolleyes:

Has someone already filed an enhancement request for Alfred 2 to support HTTP URLs for icons?

I am about to post an updated version that makes setting the language much easier, just wait a few minutes ;)

Yes, I have. The answer was that they got this request many times already, and will look into it for a future release.
