Reviews tagging and search, Telegram bot to quickly explore appstores, updated app page, service yearly roadmap and a bit more in new AppFollow version.
1. Reviews tagging
It’s usual when you find a lot of valuable data in users reviews like bugs or even app crashes, what is appreciated and what’s not, ideas on what to add or, on contrary, pull off the app. All this is quite difficult to remember or process manually.
Before we proposed to our customer use of pre-defined tags. But that was definitely not enough, limiting possible scenarios. That’s why we introduce comletely new reviews tagging tool. You now can create your own custom tags and use them the way you really want. We as well completely re-designed tags search and allow use of several tags for one review.
2. Telegram Bot
As we promised last time, we made Telegram bot— @AppFollowBot. Same as with Slack bot, you can learn position of any app in App Store and Google Play top charts and search results, learn keywords predictions in Suggestions and what is popular right now in Trending Searches in any country. And still you don’t need to open either iTunes or Google Play. Just give an appropriate command to our bot in direct message or in group chat.
Add our bot to your contact list and rate it in Telegram Store Bot: https://storebot.me/bot/appfollowbot
Spoiler alert: Soon we will do full-scale Telegram integration with AppFollow account. Stay tuned.
3. Updated App Page
You can now analyze & compare apps a lot easier:
- List of countries with available app meta-data:
- Appstore direct link, category name, price, app size and last release date:
- App icon and screenshots full-scale preview:
Devices that don’t have screenshots or/and video are highlighted with red.
- Description and what’s new chars count:
- In-App purchases list:
- All app versions list:
We will add ratings & reviews graphs and top overall and category charts positions in our next release.
4. Slack App Directory
AppFollow integration is now available in Slack App Directory (official Slack integrations and bots store): https://slack.com/apps/A0MEQBTD3-appfollow
5. Public Roadmap
Not long ago Slack published their public roadmap for developers. We decided to keep along :)

6. Product Hunt Launch
This March we had our first Product Hunt launch.
Thanks, Eric, for hunting us! Hello Product Hunters, I’m Anatoly, Co-Founder at AppFollow, along with @tahorg and…www.producthunt.com
After one week we achieved following results:
- 500+ upvotes (it’s bad to have less than 100 and it’s awesome to get more than 800) and 54 comments,
- we got 965 unique visitors and 250 registrations directly from Product Hunt web-site (conversion rate is higher than on usual daily traffic but lower compared to SEO-traffic)
- We got several waves from PH web-site, official PH email list and re-posts in different media:
All together in first week we’ve had 2,7k visitors and 596 registrations, ~40% of which were just window-shopping and ~60% — our target audience.
Most important thing — tons of customer feedback on how to improve our service, now we have a lot to do :)
7. One more thing…
We’re very excited about chat-bots hype. Besides Slack and Telegram integrations and bots we plan to launch integrations with Skype and Facebook Messenger soon. If you’re interested, please, apply accordingly:
