AppFollow

AppFollow is well suited if you only operate in a few app store countries and don't have a high volume of keywords that you are looking to rank for. This is, of course, the free plan. Besides that AppFollow is well suited for communication with other apps - they have an open API and other connections to a ton of third-party analytical tools.

Authoritas (formerly Analytics SEO)

This tool is particularly well suited to SEO teams that don't require a great deal of precision or specialization. For example, this tool provides a very user-friendly way to do keyword research, but might not be well suited to someone that needs exact search volumes or keyword difficulties. The tool offers a great bang for your buck, but isn't the most capable tool out there. Still great!

Cons

AppFollow

  • Even with the paid plans, you don't get many keywords. We were on the Essential plan for a few months but began to realize that we weren't getting that many keywords, only 3x more than the free plan. We decided to look into higher volume keyword tools because of this restriction.
  • I'm not sure if this is a feature or not, but it would be extremely helpful to be notified if one of our apps becomes featured in the app store. Essentially an alert to let us know to expect a ton of volume or a heads up not to send out a new build.

  • Crawling.

Alternatives Considered

AppFollow

While App Annie is extremely robust and pulls in data from acquisition channels, app stores, and elsewhere, it can be quite overwhelming at times. If you are looking for more simple and just keyword positioning then definitely look at AppFollow. Apart from the two platforms themselves, I've had numerous contact experiences with both AppFollow and App Annie. The winner is definitely AppFollow with a less aggressive approach and a higher willingness to go above and beyond to make sure all questions are answered. With App Annie I was bombarded with a ton of sleazy, sales emails to purchase their product.

If price isn't a factor, Analytics SEO doesn't stack up very well to competitors like Majestic, Moz, and SEMRush. If we consider pricing, however, I would say that this tool is one of the best, if not the very best, out there. This tool is extremely powerful for how much it costs.
