Know Your Score
The Applause Score is a 0-100 number (100 is phenomenally good; zero is... not) that considers all the reviews and ratings for that app. Analyzing more than 100 million reviews and weighting them within their app store category, the Applause Score provides an accurate gauge of how your app is perceived by users.
We look at all the past versions of an app, and as soon as we have statistically sufficient data we calculate your Applause Score. Why do we care if there's enough data? Well, we're more interested in getting your Applause Score right than right now.Learn More
Attributes Show What Users Think Of Your App
When your users write a review in one of the app stores, Applause Analytics evaluates what the user had to say and classifies the language they use. After pouring through months of data, the Applause Analytics team determined ten key attributes to reflect user sentiment, app quality and app store success.
Learn more about each of the attributes below and be sure to find out how your app stacks up. Applause Analytics shows you where your app shines and where it needs work.
Is your app easy to use? Obvious and intuitive? How is the experience on devices large and small? Can your users discover features and "just get it" within in the first few taps or swipes?1/10
Speed is everything on mobile. Slow launch times or network speed can ruin the experience. Make things faster, or make them look and feel faster!2/10
If your app crashes, especially if the freeze or hang results in the user losing data or time, it can be a huge detriment to your reviews.3/10
Perception is as important as reality when it comes to user sentiment around security. Are there issue with users logging on or resetting passwords?4/10
The elegance of your app's user interface is very important on mobile. How attractive, cool or slick is your app’s design? Does it cause users to brag about it to their friends?5/10
Interaction with the device, camera, other apps and services, or audio and video output issues can be frustrating to users. Understand how your app interacts with everything outside of your app.6/10
Even great apps get poor reviews if they're too expensive. Acceptable price and value is in the eye of the beholder. Take note of competitive app pricing. And remember, even if your app is free, there is an underlying "cost" to your users. Be sure to consider the perception of the "cost" of ads.7/10
Your app may be fast, reliable and secure, but does it make people happy? Is it fun or even healthily addictive to users?8/10
Ads, incorrect data or content download issues can seriously affect users perception of app quality. How accurate and relevant is an app’s data to the user? If the app was localized or translated, does it match users’ locations and cultures?9/10
Even the perception of privacy issues can cause alarm. Do you ask for more information than you need? Does the app link to questionable external content or appear to be fraudulent or deceptive?10/10
