Appsflyer Android Power Ranking


As it’s said, the app stores are flooded with the applications (1.4 million apps in App Store and 1.5 million in Play Market). On average, every device has 42 applications installed, and only 10 out of them are launched by 87% of users daily.

eCommerce, Travel and Utility apps usually have a higher LTV because they are often driven by intent, which means an app is installed to fulfill a specific and often immediate/tangible need. On the other hand, an impulsive-driven install decision is characteristic of the gaming vertical where action is often spontaneous in nature and does not fulfill a specific and immediate need.

The AppsFlyer Performance Index


Only apps with the minimum of 5.000 installs were used in the study of over 450 million installs across hundreds of eCommerce, Travel and Utility Apps running campaigns with hundreds of AppsFlyer’s integrated media partners between May and July 2015. A rank was combining two factors that were given equal weight in the formula: both retention and the total number of installs it generated.

The retention rate was calculated as the unique number of users who were active on the days 1, 7 and 30 out of the total number of the users which first launched the app.
