Google Play was introduced in March 2012 when Google rebranded and merged its predecessors Android Market and Google Music services.
The service is accessible from the web, Play Store mobile App on Android and Google TV.
As with iOS and Mac, both free and premium product suites will be available for publishers interested in Google Play analytics.
Google Play can update the applications the user selects automatically, or users can update then on a per case basis or update all applications at once.
Today, 50% of the top 20 iOS publishers are App Annie customers, as well as 80% of the top 100.
In total, App Annie has more than 100,000 apps and 13,000 publishers using its service, the company says.
Moreover, ithas become the Google Play’s Top Grossing Apps in the US asof the week of 23rd April (1), also keeps up.
The Google Play SuiteThe new suite includes the following three products: Analytics for Google Play, Store Stats for Google Play and Intelligence for Google Play.
Applications can be installed from the device or the Google Play website.
Annie provides three fabulous products for her fans:APP ANNIE ANALYTICSA free web service that automatically retrieves, visualizes and stores your apps download, revenue, ranking and review data.
The new Android analytics arent just useful because of the convenience factor of having everything in one dashboard view, theyre also helping developers gain access to international data, which has been a big pain point for the platform (among other things).
As Oliver Lo, VP Marketing for App annie, explains, if youre a developer, and you want to get a global view of the rankings for Google Playif you go to their site, and your computer is in the US, you can only see the Google Play US store.
That creates a massive barrier for developers to just get hold of international data, he says.
The technology weve built aggregates the rankings from the 35 countries across the Google Play store and puts it all in one place on one site thats free for anyone to use.
It was also made available for mobile viewers on the iPhone OS on October 28, 2008, as a free download from the App Store, and is available to Android users as a free app on the Android Market.
Google Play StatsTo celebrate its Google Play launch, App Annie pulled out some interesting trends related to Google Play and iOS.
For example, says Chief Executive Officer Bertrand Schmitt, iOS was responsible for 71% of app developers revenue worldwide, while Google Play accounted for just 29%.
Schmitt also said that while the US was the top market in terms of downloads for both iOS and Android applications, the #2 and #3 position varied, depending on platform.
RESPECT THE FOLDER CAP No folder can hold more than 12 apps in iOS and 16 in Android.
The Chinese market has a lot of older, competitive app stores and Google Play is not readily available by default on Android handsets says Schmitt, and we dont see that changing at all in the short term.
Its not counting Amazon Appstore data, for example, although the plan is to launch that later this year, Schmitt says.
