2. Responses to Mac apps reviews

Mac App Store will become more popular as during WWDC conference Apple announced a redesign and improved discoverability. We have decided to help you out to work with feedback for Mac apps — respond to them the same way as you do for iOS and Android.

An example of a respond to a review via AppFollow dashboard — the process is the same, just like for the iOS applications.

Set up the integration with Mac App Store.

Do you want more options for Mac App Store? Reach out to us help@appfollow.io.

3. Amazon Product support

A mobile app is just a part of a business for lots of our customers. For example, you are selling a smart vacuum cleaner on Amazon and you have already connected the app to control the cleaner to AppFollow and monitor reviews, ratings, and requests. Now you can get the analytics about the product itself!

For Amazon products, the same data is available as for the applications: names, descriptions, ratings, reviews, sales, and notifications.

Track down goods from Amazon.

4. Testers’ feedback support

Android developers are lucky enough to carry out closed beta testing before the app going live. The feedback received at this point is extremely important — it can help to make modifications and finalize the app before the publication.

Get in touch with both alpha and beta testers via AppFollow platform. Their feedback and replies are not published in Google Play.

If you app is in closed beta launch, Filter by Reviews will get an additional option — Beta Feedback.

More about beta feedback.

5. Ready-made requests in API

If you use our API in order to receive and edit data on apps, we have got some great news for you! Now ready-to-use methods, signatures and parameters are available for our users. Just copy them and continue to work.

More details here.

We have prepared 27 ready-to-go methods for you. All you need to do is to choose the method you need from the menu on the left and copy it.

Set up API using our help center.

If you frequently update data day-to-day, please reach out to us. We will help you to choose the necessary options of your Premium Plan.

6. Share cool reviews

When your app received a great review, of course, you want everyone to know about it!

Share such feedback, using the AppFollow inserting code:

Any feedback can be made public. If you have responded to it already, your reply is also mirrored there. For those who are interested in the app, there is a direct link to the app. We have made inserting feedback code option available on Medium so that the feedback given in publications can go live:

7. Mobile App (beta version)

Get in touch with the users via our mobile app! We have come up with AppFollow iOS and Android application prototype: you will get push-notifications about new reviews that you can respond to as if it were regular messages.

All of your iOS, Mac and Android apps could be responded to here.
