More than 600,000 apps rely daily on App Annie Analytics to track their downloads, revenues, rankings and reviews. The company is tracking the most downloads and revenues of any app or eBook store market data company to date, at over 60+ billion downloads and more than $18 billion in app store revenues.

At App Annie, we believe there has been a radical shift in the way content is being distributed. In times gone by, print, radio, television, retail and the web have dominated as content distribution channels. Now however, the distribution of digital content is moving from the open web to digital superstores.
Market data is less readily available for digital superstores than the web. Enter App Annie. Our mission is to help businesses do “The Math Behind the App Stores”. Our products enable you to make educated business decisions about the app store ecosystem.
App Annie’s best-in-class technology infrastructure, analytics platforms, advanced statistical models and a world-class team of data engineers make this all possible. Since we started in 2009, our Analytics product has tracked more than 60 billion downloads and US$17 billion of app store revenue across iOS and Google Play, making us one of the largest companies globally in terms of app store market data tracked.
