AppTerrier, the iPhone application that helps its users discover premium paid apps for free, saves people money while presenting them with top-quality apps. It helps bring to light the apps that are likely to otherwise go unnoticed in the vast iTunes App Store, which is dominated by only a small number of applications. In the App Store, where there are nearly 700,000 apps available and 60% of the apps on the market have never even been downloaded, AppTerrier is taking measures to bring the more unknown quality apps into play.
In the current App Store system, the primary way to discover new apps is by sifting through the top listings. The top 25 app listings generally belong to the companies who spend millions of dollars on advertising to get to the top of the list. What this means is that only the apps with plentiful ad budgets are getting a majority of total downloads, despite there inevitably being enormous numbers of other apps out there that are worthwhile and deserving of downloads.
In order to educate people about the disparity of wealth in the App Store, AppTerrier has released an infographic that details the extent of inequality in app downloads and rating counts. The infographic reveals how only a very small number of apps in the App Store receive a majority of all downloads.
AppTerrier’s app-finding weapon is its proprietary search algorithm called activeFetch™. With this technology, AppTerrier is able to evaluate apps not only by their download rankings, but by a number of additional data points that reveal only quality apps. Valuable apps that would have previously not stood a chance against their heavily-downloaded competitors are brought to users’ attention through activeFetch™.
