Year in review
In 2022, Appfollow went through a significant amount of change, both internally and externally.
We analyzed 109000 apps, aggregated 8.3+ billion app reviews from seven sources and sent 7.5+ million replies from our customers to their users, for all the countries in the world, and all the languages app stores support.
We were also acknowledged by you, our customers, on G2 a lot! The AppFollow team can’t be thankful enough for your ongoing support and continued collaboration: 20+ badges across three categories each season — we are so humbled. Thank you!
We also joined FT1000: Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies list for the 1st time landing on 69th place.
If you haven’t had time to read all our Product Updates or attend Product webinars, here is a short recap of what we accomplished in the past 12 months.
New navigation has been updated to help you focus on what’s really important. We divided it into three sections, tailored to your specific workflow:
- Monitor app reviews with features that will reveal user insights like reviews dashboard, semantic analysis, rating analysis and more. Everything you need to work with review analysis,and get both a bird eye view with a chance to dig deeper in each review or rating there exists.
- Engage with user feedback by responding to reviews, either manually or automatically, from 20+ different integrations or on our dashboard. You can also use our smart tags to redirect reviews to the right team. All the features within Engage are designed to support seamless and effective communication with your users.
- Accelerate your app’s growth with market insights for boosting your app’s visibility and discoverability. Our in-depth app analytics will help you make data-informed decisions for better organic reach and higher conversion rates.
