Support for App Preview videos

App panels now show App Preview videos for all iOS apps and games, playable, and with sound!

Open up the app panel from any of the following to view App preview videos:

  • Top Apps
  • All ASO reports
  • The Competitors report
  • Explorer

Also, you can easily find apps and games that have an App Preview video with Explorer, and then watch them right in Explorer. It's great for research!

Better support for Screenshots in App Panels

We've expanded support for screenshots in app panels for iOS and Mac apps to support all available screenshots from all available devices and all available resolutions.

This is available for all apps across the entire platform, from Analytics to Explorer and Top Apps.

View Downloads and Revenue by Device

You can now break down all download and revenue metrics by device to gain a better understanding of your users and your revenue.

New Tab

The Sales and Revenue reports have a new By Device tab which break down any selected metric for any selected apps by the device category they came from.

Note: Right now only Apple devices (and apps) are supported. We plan to expand that in the future to include Android apps as well.

Supported device categories include: iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV.

New Filter

In addition to the new tab, existing tabs now offer a filter so you can see your data by date, country, or even product, filtered by device.

Support for Stripe in the Payments Report

You can now break out your Stripe revenue in the Payments Report, and track it along side revenue from other platforms easily.

In addition, when "All Products" is selected, Stripe payments will be broken out at the individual app level as well.

Improved Ratings Calculation for ASO in Keyword Inspector

Ratings play an important role in App Store Optimization, and on the App Store, the algorithm looks at new ratings to decide an app's rank.

We recently uncovered that the algorithm ignores negative ratings, such as when the App Store cleans ratings or when the developer resets the app's rating, so we're now ignoring those ratings in Keyword Inspector.

This means ratings in Keyword Inspector may not align with the Ratings report or the Competitors report, but will give better insight into ranks within a keyword.

New Integration: Stripe

Are you using Stripe to accept payments for your desktop apps? Or maybe for your mobile apps where it's (now) possible? If you do, you can now track all of your revenue in one place with our new Stripe integration!

Connect Stripe →

The integration with Stripe is currently in open beta and is available to all members across all plans.

Better Insights with More Overlays

One of the major benefits of having all of your data in one place is that you can combine it to easily identify trends and correlations.

Things like how ad spend relates to downloads or how downloads relate to ratings, are super simple to visualize with overlays.

Overlays have been a core feature of all Analytics reports, and we just made them even better!

  • Category ranks can be overlaid in all reports.
  • The Ad Spend report now has access to all other data sets, including downloads, revenue, and more.
  • Overlays work across all granularities, not just in daily mode.

Try out the overlays in every Analytics report right now, and it's available across all plans.

Changes to Google's fee for subscriptions

In a few days, Google will change its fee structure for apps and games that use subscriptions.

Starting January 1st, Google will be lowering the fee for subscriptions 15% for all transactions. Previously, only subscriptions active for a year or more were eligible for this lower tier while first-year subscriptions had a 30% fee.

This will be reflected in your Revenue and Subscriptions reports automatically starting January 1st.

Important - Google does not report net revenue until the end of the month, which means we won't know if Google actually made this change on time or if there were any delays. We don't expect any, but as we learn more about this change, if we do see the need, we will update reports to ensure accuracy.

Our Response to Log4Shell

The Apache Foundation recently announced that Log4j, a popular Java logging library, is vulnerable to remote code execution. You may also know it as CVE-2021-44228.

Our team worked to evaluate all of our products and internal services for any potential impact, and we can confirm that Appfigures is not impacted by this vulnerability.

In addition, we are actively monitoring for attempts to exploit this vulnerability and have not detected any successful attacks against our infrastructure.
