Search Microsoft Store from PowerShell

This is an old version, I can't find the latest one I wrote before I moved on to other things...

Alt Text

Leaving out deviceFamilyVersion and userSegments.
I believe device family version tells the site what category of content to search, e.g. kids, adults, and i'm not sure what usersegments does, i think it might be unique to each user but both are not mandatory parameters.
oemid and scmid, while not mandatory are important if you want to search for apps that are only for your make of computer, e.g. you will not see the lenovo vantage program in a search if you don't inlclude those fields.

Function Search-MSStore ($query) {

$base = "https://storeedgefd.dsx.mp.microsoft.com/v8.0/search?"; $market = "US"; $locale = "en-US"

$paramstring = [ordered]@{
market = "US"
locale = "en-US"
query = "microsoft"
mediaType = "apps"
category = "all"
moId = "Public"
oemId = "LENOVO"
scmId="Lenovo3_Idea"
deviceFamily="windows.desktop"
appVersion="12006.1001.0.0"
catalogLocales="en-US"
availableOn="windows.desktop"
maturityRating="all"
cardsEnabled="true"
pzn="0"
pageSize="25"
skipItems="0"}

$paramobject = New-Object -TypeName PSObject
$paramobject | Add-Member -NotePropertyMembers $paramstring
$paramobject.query=$query

[string]$param = (-join ($paramobject.psobject.Properties.name | foreach {$_ + "=" + $paramobject.$_ + "&"})).trimend("&")

$response = Invoke-WebRequest -UseBasicParsing -Uri ($base+$param)
$cards = ($response.content | ConvertFrom-Json -ashashtable).Payload.Cards
$cards | select Title,Price,ProductId
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

}
