App Annie

I think that App Annie will be handy for the companies that provide service in multiple countries - so they have to deal with local competitors research and track the performance of the app (by the position and by the reviews) in different stores. I think that for a one-country app, many of the features will be less relevant.At the same time, App Annie offers custom plans, so I see how the user experience can be different.

We prefer other attribution platforms other than Kochava, since Kochava has poor visibility, it is not user friendly and does not provide detailed reports

Cons

App Annie

  • App Annie is extremely limited if you are on the free plan. While you can garner some golden nuggets from the free plan, it's extremely difficult to make needle moving decisions based on the free data. It would be great if App Annie would disclose pricing on their website, plus have a non-free/enterprise plan were you could pick and choose features they offer.
  • After nearly considering a paid plan with App Annie, I decided not to purchase because of the broken trust that stemmed from their sales team. I often got cold-calls from their reps - even when I never contacted them for a sales member to call me. I was bombarded for about 2 weeks straight with phone calls and hard-core sales emails with just asking to talk, no questions or personalization. This cold, unwanted and unwelcome outreach solidified my decision not to purchase.

Kochava

  • Hard to pull reporting
  • often tracking issues, and advertisers seem to have a hard time integrating
  • lack of visibility on many events, and poor fraud detection

Well the fact that the freemium features are all that I need right now, I will most definitely continue to use it on a daily basis. I might upgrade to the pro version in the future if I need more data than what I am getting now. But for now it works great for what I need.

I have not had to contact support a lot of times. The few times I did, I got correct and lengthy responses, but they took some time to answer. Their product is very complete, so unless you have a specific question, you will probably not need to contact support at any time.

They have been a bit slow in responding, that's the only reason for the low rating. Otherwise, they are smart and helpful.

Alternatives Considered

App Annie

We use Google 360 and are able to do a much deeper dive into the activity we see on our apps. I think App Annie is a great starting point product, but for more in depth analytics, something like a Google 360 or Adobe might be better.

Kochava

Kochava is good from pricing point of view when you scale up. Both are equal in terms of core features and attribution. However, UI wise AppsFlyer is better.

Return on Investment

App Annie

  • App Annie has had neither a positive nor negative impact on our ROI or business objectives. Our team currently uses their free, very limited plan for data discrepancy with our main ASO tool. Otherwise, we have connected our apps and let the data flow in. We go in the account about once every 2-3 months.
  • With App Annie's data we have solidified that our other paid ASO tool we use has accurate data and that we will continue to pay for that tool. So in that regards, App Annie's provided us with a confirmation in our competitor ASO tool purchase decision.

Kochava

  • We have had issues with quality due to the poor reporting
  • Lost several opportunities based on lack of visibility
  • not user friendly dashboard, and therefore harder to use than other common platforms
