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.

Rank Ranger

It is great for just tracking keyword performance. The other features are nice but are not the most useful when compared to other for robust tools. The easy-on-the-eyes interface and the fact that keyword data can be updated in less than 3 hours after a bulk upload are why this tool works for lower-maintenance websites.

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.

Rank Ranger

  • Their reporting dashboard/custom report features are lacking. We rely on our other tool more so for this function as a result.
  • It is not a robust tool - focusing mostly on keyword performance, it does not have other features that further help us flesh out strategic next steps based on keyword performance

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.

Rank Ranger

It was a lower price point and serves the need of anyone looking for the biggest bang for their buck. I highly recommend it if someone needs a rank tracking software that is clean and simple to use. They have a trial and also their customer support is great, you can call if necessary, but email is very responsive too.
