In this work, we describe the design and implementation of a reusable tool named KnowledgeZooClient targeting the construction, as a crowd-sourced effort, of a knowledge graph for Android apps. KnowledgeZooClient is made up of two modules: (1) the Metadata Extraction Module (MEM), which aims at extracting metadata from Android apps and (2) the Metadata Integration Module (MIM) for importing and integrating extracted metadata into a graph database the usefulness of KnowledgeZooClient is demonstrated via an exclusive knowledge graph called KnowledgeZoo, which contains information on over 500,000 apps already and still keeps growing. Interested users can already benefit from KnowledgeZoo by writing advanced search queries so as to collect targeted app samples.
