You can track new apps released on a weekly basis using both the Explorer and the API.

Using the Explorer, you can save queries, and then receive weekly notifications alerting you to any changes in the query. This includes apps that were added or deleted, or apps that have left or entered your query.

By saving a query you will automatically receive a weekly email with updates. To opt out, or change the day you receive the email, click here.

To find apps made by developers who are located in Berlin, use the “DEVELOPER PHYSICAL ADDRESS” filter. You can search by street, city or country.

Note: the address is saved as recorded by the developer.

To find apps with an audience in Germany, use the “COUNTRIES” filter. You can then filter apps to show only those that are supported in Germany. You can also find apps that are supported just in Germany and no where else.

Note: you can also find apps that are not supported in a certain country, by using the “not supported” option.

To change the columns, click on “Configure Columns” in the top right corner of the Explorer.

This allows you to select and deselect columns depending on what information you would like to see. “Title” and “package name” are always selected, and you can show all or none of the other columns.

Keep in mind that when you are exporting using the Explorer, you are only exporting the columns that you have selected to be shown.

You can filter all the apps by the day the were released (for example, last month, last week, yesterday or a custom date range).

You can also filter by the day the were updated (again, by last month, last week, yesterday or a custom date range).

To do so, go to the “Dates” tab on the Explorer, and then filter by release date or update date.

This what your side bar of the explorer will look like:

We do! We allow you to:

  • Search for apps by SDK
  • Find which SDKs each app supports
  • Download all SDK data

For example you could search for all apps using the Adjust app:

Or you can see all the SDKs that an app is using (in this case, Candy Crush):

For a full overview of the SDK data visit this page: SDK Overview

Yes! We now allow you to save your queries on the Explorer so you can access what you’re looking for instantly, and track any movements in the app stores.

You can easily save your query by using the “Save” button and then naming your query.

If you need any help saving your queries, get in touch with us here.

We’ve just added rankings to the Explorer allowing you to filter apps by ranking, category and country for both iOS and Android.

You can filter by “top” lists:

  • Free
  • Paid
  • Trending
  • Gross
  • New Free
  • New Paid

Within each of these lists you can choose a specific category and country.

This is a list of the overall top 200 trending apps in Australia for example. 

You can also limit the number of search results, for example by searching only for the top 100 results.

All data is updated daily, offering the most recent rankings across both Android and iOS.

There are several ways you can use the languages filter, but it is most useful for finding apps that support or do not support certain languages.

Apps Only Available in One Language

If you are looking for apps that are only available in German. Use the slide bar to select one language, then use the tick boxes to select German.

These 27’820 apps are available only in German, and are not translated into any other languages. If you are looking to target apps that have German users, this is an easy way to find those leads. 

Apps that don’t support certain languages

We can use the language filter to find apps that aren’t currently supporting language filters.

These 831 apps support French and German, but don’t support Chinese or English. We’ve filtered out Chinese apps, so that we can focus on apps that support some European languages (French, German).

These apps support at least 5 languages (and up to 36 languages), but currently don’t support English.

This is a great way for app localisation companies who have expertise of translating into English to find new leads. 

Highly Localised Apps

Looking for apps that are only available in one language?

By using the slider to find apps that only support one language, you can find highly localised apps. This often will include local businesses, and companies, or country specific apps, like train timetables.

We offer a daily dump of all the apps that been removed for Google Play Store and iTunes. Google Play removed data is exported on a daily basis, iTunes data is exported weekly.

Body as POST:

{“query”:{“platform”:”android”,”query_params”:{“from”:0,”num”:40,”sort”:”score”,”sort_order”:”asc”,”domain_search_in”:[“website”,”email”],”domain_search_term”:”rovio.com”}}}

The “domain_search_term” value is the web domain you want to search for.

The integration of our API requires a little technical knowledge, but please get in touch here if it seems daunting and we can walk you through the process.

The most popular apps, top charts and app rank history are all updated daily. We update all data on a weekly basis.
