How accurate are Apptopia's estimations?

Our download and revenue estimations for Google Play and the iOS App Store are regarded as some of the most accurate in the industry.

Downloads
Our download estimations range from 70 - 90% accurate, on average.

Revenue
Our revenue estimations range from 65 - 80% accurate, on average.
  • Paid Downloads: 70 - 90% accurate
  • In-App Purchase: 70 - 80% accurate
  • Advertising: 65 - 70% accurate
Important Note
  • Our numbers are averages that take into account both ranked apps and unranked apps. 
  • We consistently perform much better (i.e. higher in our accuracy range) with higher ranked apps.  Lower ranked apps tend to be dramatically more volatile and difficult to predict.
Updates
As of December 2016, we have enhanced our iOS models for Downloads, In-App Purchase Revenue, Daily Active Users and Monthly Active users to increase accuracy by 2.2x over previous models. We are now working on enhancing the Google Play models.
