Our App and SDK Intelligence

At 42matters, we provide insight into the mobile and connected TV (CTV) app economies.

Our team of data scientists has cultivated a rich environment of app, game, and SDK intelligence that serves as the foundation of our suite of APIs, File Dumps, and web-based app market research platforms.

By offering precise estimates for performance metrics like daily downloads and monthly active users, constructing granular app taxonomies and detecting SDKs integrated in apps, and building models for insightful topic and sentiment analysis, we enable a wide range of use cases that give our customers a competitive advantage.

The best businesses need the highest-quality app intelligence!

How Fresh Is Our Data?

For the most popular apps, we update our data daily. Other apps are generally refreshed weekly or when they release a new update or version of the app. Likewise, our SDK intelligence is revised whenever we detect that an app has been updated on the app stores.

If you need the latest and most outstanding intelligence, you don't need to wait for us to conduct a data refresh. You can use our Recrawl API to do it yourself or request an app data refresh via the Tech Support page.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What app insights do you provide?

Tons! We offer everything from performance metrics (downloads, monthly active users, ratings, and rankings) to metadata, developer details, integrated SDKs, required permissions, localization, and monetization techniques. If you need a particular set of insights, just let us know, and we'll set you up with the best solution for your requirements!

How do we get our app data?

Our App Intelligence estimates and performance data result from machine learning techniques and artificial intelligence algorithms that our data science team developed and tuned over the years to provide our customers with accurate mobile data. We do not use or process either panel data or data collected from user devices.

How often do you update your data?

We monitor many different data points and app metrics, so it depends on the data! While we update the most popular apps and worldwide charts daily, and apps that add or remove new SDKs as soon as they release an update or new version, we try to refresh apps every week, if not more frequently. However, to force a real-time update, you can use our Recrawl API or request an app data refresh via the Tech Support page.

How far back does your data go?

We never delete data, so if historical data is what you're after, you should look into our Historical Data add-on. For example, while most of our standard APIs provide up to 30 days' worth of data, you can access up to 3 years by updating to the Historical Data add-on. You can even get data going back 5+ years for our File Dumps. For more information, feel free to chat with our sales team!

Do you track all apps?

While we do our best to track all apps available on our supported platforms, we may have missed a few. For instance, this happens on occasion with newly released apps. If you notice we're missing an app critical to your mission, let us know, and we'll add it ASAP. Otherwise, you can use our API to refresh it yourself!

Do you track all SDKs, and how do you collect SDK data?

We do! We just haven't whitelisted them all yet. So, if you want data on an SDK that isn't currently visible in our products, let us know! We can get it up and running for you within 48 hours. As for how we collect SDK data, we get it from analyzing apps. By checking in on them regularly, we can detect which technologies apps use and which they've removed.
