I am an independent developer just started out in the world of app development. I needed a quick way to track my app stats, and check out my competitors strategies. If you have ever used the website Alexa.com you know how important it is to be able to track a competitors website. But what about Apps? That is when a simple Google search led me to SensorTower.com
When I found Sensor Tower I thought it was like all the other “track your app stats” websites out there. What I didn’t know what how detailed, and intricate the information was, and how well it was going to give me an advantage over my competitors. I started using Sensor Tower in December 2013, and made some suggested app store changes in January. You can see from the graph that it certainly helped!
I spend a lot of my time developing and designing my app, and the last thing I wanted to do was brainstorm on what keywords to use. Another great feature about Sensor Tower was the Keyword Suggestions tool. It pulls from your existing keywords and gives your suggestions along with traffic and difficulty numbers to help you decide what is best for you.
Having the ability to search any competitors app and see what keywords they are using compared to your app is incredible! I have spent countless hours researching other apps and seeing what they have done. This feature alone is worth the free signup.
I really think Sensor Tower is an invaluable tool for me. It has most definitely helped in getting my app recognized. If you are an app developer, and you want to get a leg up on the competition then check out SensorTower.com, but not if you are a social polling app.
