We present a growing collection of Android apps collected from several sources, including the official Google Play app market and a growing collection of various metadata of those collected apps aiming at facilitating the Android-relevant research works.

This article will be continuously updated based on the growing apps and metadata collected in the AndroZoo project. If you have specific metadata that you want to collect from AndroZoo and which are not yet provided by far, please let us know. We will thereby prioritise it in our collecting process so as to provide it to our fellow researchers in a short manner.
