Find Out Which Apps Got Featured in the Today Tab

You’ve probably had that situation where you check your app’s data in the App Store Connect and suddenly see a huge spike in App Impressions and you have no idea where they come from. You know your app has probably been featured on the App Store, but it’s not easy to find out in which type of Story or in which countries it was published. You can now view that info on AppTweak in our new Featured Apps tab.

Scanning through the different Stories that were published across different geos can help you get a better understanding of trending topics in different markets or new popular apps. To make it easier for you to identify the most visible apps on a given selection (country, date), AppTweak shows a summary of Top Featured apps and the number of times they appeared in stories for the selected filters.

When we looked at the top featured apps across different countries, we found interesting patterns. For instance, we saw that Fortnite was given a lot of visibility in Europe and that other top featured apps in Europe mostly include games. In Latin America however, the most featured apps are all meditation apps. It’s also interesting to see that Apple doesn’t seem to have dedicated content teams for these countries since the published stories are the same.

Another great characteristic of this new feature is that you can search for a specific app to see in which countries and when the app was featured. This is great to keep track of your app’s featurings, but it also allows you to check how frequently your competitors are being featured.
