Distimo (http://www.distimo.com), the globally recognized app store analytics leader, announced the launch today of its new Distimo iOS® app, the first mobile app to offer users the ability to check the performance of their own and competing apps across any app store from the palm of their hand. The Distimo iOS app taps into the full suite of Distimo App Analytics tools, and offers comprehensive analysis and tracking of daily downloads, revenues, in-app purchases, and reviews in all major app stores including the Apple App Store, Google Play, Amazon Appstore, Samsung Apps, Apple Mac Store, Windows Phone Marketplace, Windows Store, BlackBerry World, and Nokia Ovi Store. The Distimo iOS app is available now as a free download in the Apple App Store.
“We’re excited to be the first app store analytics company to launch an app that allows developers to see their own and competing app intelligence wherever they may be – whether it’s from their desktop or from the palm of their hand,” said Vincent Hoogsteder, CEO and co-founder of Distimo. “Distimo is trusted by developers worldwide to track over 3.2 billion downloads per quarter for more than 260,000 apps on all major app stores. Giving developers mobile access to app performance at anytime, anywhere will enable them to have the best app strategy for competing in the global app store market.”
The new Distimo iOS app also includes access to the Distimo Leaderboards, which displays the daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly rankings for all major app stores. The Leaderboards data can be sorted by category and country, allowing users to keep a pulse on the rapidly changing app market. Additionally, Distimo AppIQ customers can view premium transactional data including the daily download and revenue volumes of any app in any category, globally. The app provides users with on-the-go access to track the performance of their own app data alongside competing apps, enabling developers to gain solid insight into their daily app performance wherever they may be.
Methodology and accuracy
Distimo offers the most reliable download and revenue trending data in the market. The company collects two data sets. The first is publicly available data, such as app and publisher names, prices, rankings and ratings. The second data set consists of transactional data – downloads and revenues – for developers that use Distimo App Analytics. Download and revenue volumes are then calculated based on daily sampling of both data sets. Distimo always excludes the transactional data of individual apps from its analysis when calculating downloads and revenues for individual apps in order to preserve the confidentiality of its users’ data. Estimations are based on the transactional data of over three billion downloads per quarter. The accuracy of Distimo’s app data is unmatched in the industry: 54 percent of apps are estimated with a margin of error below three percent, and 95 percent are estimated with a margin of error below 10 percent.
Distimo has a very clear objective: to help developers solve the app puzzle and make the app market transparent. Our goal is to provide the best and most actionable app intelligence for anyone who wants to compete in the app market. Our data-driven team seeks to help developers, brands and financial services companies gain actionable, timely and factual knowledge of what’s happening daily in the global app market. Distimo offers the following core services: App Analytics, to track all your important app data across all major app stores and ad networks; Conversion Tracking, to measure your full app sales funnel from discovery and campaigns to app launch and the full lifetime value of an app user; and AppIQ, the most accurate tool on the market to analyze the estimated daily download and revenue volumes for any app in any market worldwide. Distimo Leaderboard ranks the top apps in every country, category and app store, individually by day, week, month and/or quarter, and allows users to analyze them. An integrated data offering for the enterprise is also available via the Distimo API.
