  • View by country: For each category in your market find out how many downloads you need to reach top rankings in the selected countries.

Ex. You need more downloads to reach top 5 rankings in the Games Word category Japan than in the United Kingdom.

  • View by category: For each country find out which category is the most competitive.

Ex. In the United States, you need 117K daily downloads to rank top 3 in the Games Casual category. You only need 12.4K downloads to rank in the top 3 in the Games Word category.

  • Show variability: This are daily estimates and depend on the volatility of the category. For example, in some categories, the level of downloads to reach a position is much higher during the weekend than during the week (ex: Photo & Video, Games etc.), or vice versa (Business, etc.). You can see this variability by checking the “Show variability” box in the upper right.
