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.

I think that SimilarWeb can be used for companies or departments looking to get a greater sense of website and general online traffic for a certain brand, individual, etc. I think that the tool requires little to no training as it's easy to navigate and the interface is clean and precise.

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.

  • Correlating some of the Trending Apps with your own marketing can be confusing.
  • You might have to upgrade if you are looking for Website Segment Analytics.

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.

This is one of the most UI friendly tools out there. Their data presentation and analysis is top of the world. We have never had to give KT to any team to be able to onboard on to this tool. In fact, the data is sufficient enough to get newer insights every time you deep dive.

Support is just helpful and effective when you need them; we have only needed to contact them once about a misunderstanding while setting up our Market Analysis. Since we don't really contact them too often, it's hard to offer anything but a positive rating from the single positive experience we had with tech support.

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.

Hitwise data may be more comprehensive but it is far more expensive.Commscore has similar data limitations but still costs a lot more.

Return on Investment

App Annie

  • We were able to map the market for free, increasing ROI.
  • We were able to boost yield by using their analytical solution to improve our app increasing ROI.
  • It centralized all of the apps' information, which is extremely useful, and it allows us to not work with other expensive partners, improving margins.
