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.

  • Pricing: it's very high for smaller players to afford.
  • On the SEO side, they could perhaps add more information as shared by some of the other SEO tools; this will help us avoid multiple tool subscriptions for SEO purposes.
  • I don't have any other cons.

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.

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.

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.

SpyFu and Semrush I've used frequently to perform competitor analysis. I find SimilarWeb is better at finding initial traffic data for websites than the others but the other services are better at in-depth analysis for advertising and SEO purposes. This is a better tool for quickly finding legit and non-legit partners at scale.

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.

  • We haven't started using paid plan yet, so we have not spent money on the tool, just time
  • It didn't take much time to start using the software and it gave us some insights, so I would say we have a positive ROI
