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.

Clearscope shines if you're using freelance writers or even just need a way to easily keyword optimize long-form content. While it can be used for marketing pages, I've found it does best with longer-form blog content in the hands of writers. So, if you have inexperienced writers or those less savvy/comfortable about SEO optimization, I'd recommend only using it for blogs. articles or other long-form content. Have some SEO experience under your belt? Use it for EVERYTHING that needs keyword optimization and is over 300 words. It'll help give you ideas and give you a better idea of how to work in that semantic SEO.

  • Cost is a little prohibitive for small teams/businesses.
  • Running reports could be more intuitive. Some users have run them incorrectly, costing credits (which Clearscope has been kind enough to refund).

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.

They're all similar but different. We use Frase and MarketMuse during other parts of our content creation process. I have used Surfer when clients supply reports and think it's also a solid tool. But nothing beats Clearscope when it comes to content optimization as you finish drafting.
