How to get to the App Detail View

You can reach the App Detail View in several ways. First, if you don’t already have an App Radar account, you can create one for free. After that, make sure you’ve added an app to your account. You can do this by either using the search bar or connecting your app to App Radar. 

Our system then prefills some keywords in Keyword Tracking and suggests a few competitors in Competitor Compare for you.

Benefits of App Detail View

The App Detail View is beneficial to your overall app growth strategy. Because not only can you see all of this information for your competitors, you can also view it for your own app. This makes comparing your app growth to your competitors a quick and easy task. 

  • Apple Search Ad Bids: By knowing how many Apple Search Ad bids your competitors are placing, you can tell how aggressive their paid user acquisition (UA) strategy is. 
  • Keyword Rankings: The number of keywords they organically rank for shows how advanced their ASO strategy is. The more keywords they rank for organically and the more top 10 or #1 spots they have, the better their ASO strategy is. 
  • Ratings & Reviews: With Ratings & Reviews, you are able to gauge how satisfied and loyal their user base is. If your competitors have a large number of negative reviews, then you have an opportunity to fill a gap in the market. 
  • App Screenshots: Being able to quickly view your competitors’ app screenshots and preview video gives you a sense of what kind of creative assets work well for your app niche and which don’t. Identifying changing trends in app screenshots and preview videos will allow you to stay ahead of the competition when it comes to conversion rate optimization (CRO)
  • App Updates: Seeing when your competitors last updated their app, highlights how attentive they are to their app business. If their app update was recent, then they have an active team working to improve the app. This means you have to ramp up your work too. 
  • Category Rankings: Lastly, by viewing how your competitors’ app category rankings change, you can pinpoint if they are performing well or not.
