Save $2,400 today Gaining success in the app market has become more and more difficult every year. The days of shooting to the top simply by having a great product are over.

Now, you need in-depth strategies, tests and constant iteration to succeed.

We see this conundrum all the time: you need better app market data to grow your company, but you can't pay for app market data until your company grows.

It's the app publisher equivalent of the 'need a job to get experience, need experience to get a job' meme.

So we figured out a way around this: if you share your app store data with Priori Data, we'll give you 12 months of free access to our platform (that usually costs $2400).

If that sounds good to you, please apply to join the program: Save $2,400 today

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I get with this offer?

By partnering with us you will get 12-months of free access to the Basic App Intelligence plan. That’s 10 competitor apps to check daily historical and country-level download and revenue estimates for per month. You will of course be able to check our estimates for your own apps for free.

What does Priori Data get out of this?

We view it as a data-for-data exchange.

Give us access to your data - improving our mobile data accuracy - and we’ll give you access to ours.

What we need is a view-only access to your iTunes Connect account and your Google Play Console. This is done by inviting a user created by us to your app store accounts and giving it specific roles: ‘Sales’ and ‘Reports’ on iTunes and ‘Finance’ with Global Visibility on Google Play. It doesn’t take more than 5 minutes. Visit this page to get started!

What are the requirements?

There are no size restrictions for who can become a data partner. We hope that by being part of our program we can help you achieve the next level of success.

Nevertheless, we do have some key eligibility requirements which are outlined below.

We reserve the right to revoke your access to our offer if we discover that you are not complying with the requirements as stated.

Requirements

You need to have a live ranked app in the Google Play Store and/or the Apple App Store.

Our offer is at at the enterprise level. That means that if you have 20 apps across three different publisher accounts, you must connect all accounts. 

You are not permitted to use the information for external or commercial purposes without separate agreement. We're generally nice, flexible people, so it’s best to have a conversation with us. If you have any specific questions, please contact us directly (we love to chat apps).

How is my data used?

We use your data to get a better understanding of the market in which you are evolving. Put simply, your data helps us improve our accuracy for your competitive environment. If you would like to understand how, check out this comprehensive look at our data methodology and accuracy we’ve recently shared on our site.

Is my data safe?

We never show, share nor sell it to any third party: it is solely used to feed and improve our estimate models. 

By default, data shared as part of the Publisher program is covered by our strict Data Security Policy

If you are still not convinced we are also happy to sign a Non Disclosure Agreement. Please do not hesitate to request one from your Priori Data contact.

Will my real data be displayed on the Priori platform?

No. All the data in the platform is estimated.

The data you provide goes into our models (if we get enough, we update those models) which then provide all the statistics we show on the platform.

This means that your competitors will not be able to see your actual performance on our platform - only our estimates.

How good is your mobile data accuracy?

While we strive to be as accurate as possible for all apps, there are multiple reasons why our estimates for your apps may differ from your actual numbers:

  • First and foremost, we take your data privacy very seriously. Partners that share data never have their actual data shown in the platform, which means estimates are always shown. Due to the estimation methods we use, which rely on publicly available information combined with publisher data points, some variance from your actual numbers is to be expected. 
  • Because rank is a major signal for our models, our estimates for apps that have spent a significant amount of time outside of the top charts may also be less accurate.
  • In some markets, we are more accurate than others. Our accuracy depends on the number of partners we have in specific country/category combinations. Therefore, if your app is in one of the combinations in which we do not have a considerable amount of partners, it is probable that you find a gap between our estimates and your real numbers.
  • Finally, apps that have large fluctuations in performance historically are much harder to retrospectively estimate. For apps such as these, we may be less accurate.

If you want to see how accurate we are for your market, we have made a report publicly available that shows our accuracy by country and category. You can see that here.

Can I opt out of the offer if I am not happy with it?

Of course. We built this offer so that you’re always in the driver’s seat. If you are no longer happy with our partnership, you can opt out simply by deleting the user that you invited when connecting your account with us

(When and if that happens, we will discontinue your free access to our platform).

Do you have anything about this I can show my team?

Of course!
