We want to learn more about how Apptopia can help you solve your work goals. Starting today, we'll be asking you to fill out a quick questionnaire about your role and interests (it will take less than a minute). We'll be using this information to make Apptopia better for you.




We have made a couple of very small UI updates to bring more consistency to the Product.

New X-Ray Tags




We've added eleven new tags to our X-Ray dataset this week:

  • Slots

    • Gameplay that incorporates slot machine chance mechanics to award players.
  • Spot the Difference

    • Games where the player must identify a pre-defined number of differences between two visually similar images. These are often called 'photo hunt' games and are commonly targeted towards children.
  • Hyper Casual

    • Free-to-play casual games with simplistic controls, infinite loop mechanics, simple color schemes, and primarily/usually ad-driven revenue.
  • Virtual Pet

    • Gameplay focus is on the care, raising, and/or breeding of virtual pets.
  • Hockey

    • Game focus is on the sport of hockey or contains hockey-related content.
  • Last Mile Transportation

    • The app allows users to rent vehicles suitable for traveling short distances and often offer little protection from the environment (ex scooters, bikes)
  • Traffic Enforcement Warnings

    • The app will alert the driver to oncoming traffic enforcement zones (e.g. speed traps, construction, etc)
  • B2B Marketplace

    • The app provides an online storefront for businesses to buy or sell physical and/or digital goods with other businesses.
  • Coloring

    • Games where the primary objective is to color objects.
  • In Store Assistant

    • The app contains functionality to aid or enhance the experience of the user while they are in the physical store of the app provider (ex. item locator, price scanner, store-specific item availability).
  • Fighting

    • Gameplay is focused primarily on close-quarters combat between characters within fixed physical boundaries, such as a stage or a ring.

New X-Ray Tags




We've added seven new tags to our X-Ray dataset today:

  • Crypto Wallet
    • The app allows the user to securely store, send, and receive crypto currencies on their mobile device.
  • Lending
    • These are apps that allow the user to borrow money from a lender, or act as a lender to loan money to other app users. These also include pay-day loan/advance and cash advance apps, which provide short-term high-interest loans.
  • Peer-to-Peer Payments
    • The app allows the user to send payments electronically to other individuals who either are other users of the app, or have access to the same money-transfer service that is used.
  • Trade Crypto
    • The app allows the user to buy/sell/swap cryptocurrencies.
  • Rewarded Play
    • Games that reward play with real-money cash, gift cards, or credits of monetary value.
  • Bill Pay
    • The app allows the user to track or pay bills. These include any app that allows a user to connect to an account where they are billed (ex utility, internet, credit card) for the purpose of tracking when how much they owe, when the bill is due, and/or allows them to directly pay the bill from an account they own (checking, savings, credit card).
  • Consumer Marketplace
    • The app provides an online storefront that allows third-party vendors to sell physical and/or digital goods where app users can purchase them (ex Amazon, Etsy, Alibaba, eBay).

We added a new 'app type' filter to Category Analysis to make it easy to see which categories are more popular for Games and Non-Games
