What's under the hood?

We take disorganized app data, process it, and turn it into insights and trends you can use for building a better app. It also helps you optimize your costs and resources, and isn’t it what’s important for businesses!
Review Management Software
Your customers deserve the best experience, and they are constantly communicating their needs to you. But are you listening? We make it easy for you not only to know when users leave reviews but also to analyze them in bulk, spot the most mentioned topics, and automate review management. Besides, AppFollow is the only tool among all mobile data management and analytics services that does that.
Our Review Management Automation tools can:
- respond to any reviews for you, helping you manually manage only the most important reviews;
- tag reviews by the rules you set, so you can easily find every single one that mentions a specific word or has a specific number of words;
- report inappropriate reviews so your app rating is not affected by spam and scam;
- translate reviews from any language to simplify the understanding of your users worldwide.
Ratings & Reviews Dashboard
A single Dashboard to monitor your KPIs connected to app reviews and ratings, evaluate the success of each release, and track the efficiency of support agents. A high-level overview of Reviews & Ratings dynamics for a quick understanding of your reply-to-reviews strategy. It also enables a deeper analysis of each section so nothing escapes from you.
Voice of the Customer
It was time to reveal the true power of our semantic analysis tool. Now it supports 20 languages which means you will be able to cover up to 95% of your user reviews and queries. Its ML algorithm designed to identify the most common topics in reviews and group them accordingly with semantics tags. Besides, it classified the tone of voice of reviews to learn how customers are generally feeling about the product in whole or a new version of it.
With Semantic Analysis you know what exactly is in your users' mind and can prioritize feature releases or bug resolving accordingly.
No matter how big your app grows and how busy your support and product teams get, you can still provide the best experience to your users from any country 24/7.
