NEW: Expanded SDK, App Download, and Changelog Insights

NEW: Expanded SDK, App Download, and Changelog Insights

The SDK Explorer now enables you to see which apps have installed or removed an SDK during a given month. The Explorer now provides Estimated Downloads and Changelog insights for any app going back as far as two and three years, respectively.

Over the last few months, we’ve added numerous new products and features to our suite of app intelligence solutions. These give our users insight into Apple privacy initiatives like App Privacy Details and App Tracking Transparency, access to app-ads.txt file dumps for all LG and Samsung connected TV (CTV) apps, the ability to track SDK downloads and installations across millions of iOS and Android apps, and much, much more.

Today, we’re pleased to announce three more improvements to our Explorer platforms — improved SDK integration insights in the SDK Explorer and enhanced Estimated Downloads and Changelog tools in the app market Explorer.

SDK Integrations — Apps That Have Installed / Removed an SDK During a Given Month

To begin, let’s take a look at the latest addition to the 42matters SDK Explorer. Back in May, we introduced the New Installations and Removals History feature, which gives users the ability to track the number of installs and removals for any SDK during a given month:

We’ve taken this feature one step further. By clicking on any bar in a New Installations and Removals History bar chart, you’ll be able to see which apps have installed or removed an SDK during the corresponding month, with up to 100 results.

For instance, if you’re using the SDK Explorer to research the Android version of the AdColony SDK and you click on the bar representing New Installations in April 2021, you’ll pull up the following list:

App Download History Feature Expanded to Two Years

One of the more popular features of our flagship Explorer platform is the Historical App Downloads chart, which provides country-specific daily, weekly, and monthly download insights:
