appScatter uses an automated process to gather publicly available app data from app stores across the globe. Our aim is to bring in as much public data across the app store landscape as possible and build the most complete picture of an individual apps reach; and rank.
Our data gathering process centres on many information points that allow our platform to pull together the global view of an app. The two most important data points our processes centre on are:
- App Name
- App Publisher
The naming of an app and publisher, as they appear publicly on an app store, allow our platform to generate informed decisions on how we group together different instances and variants of apps:
Unless the app and publisher name are matched within the tolerances of our matching algorithm there is the potential that your apps might not be matched in appScatter as expected. If you experience this then please follow this article for help and guidance: My App appears multiple times on appScatter. What do I do?
