What Is App Data?

App data measures app usage in a given market or location. Additionally, it collects information about the users of these mobile apps.

Where Does App Data Come From?

This data comes from stores like Google Play and App Store as well as internal data from companies selling the apps. Additionally, websites offering apps, either on their site or in an app store, can install cookies that track website visitors to their eventual downloads, providing valuable demographic and behavioral information about app users.

What Types of Columns/Attributes Should I Expect When Working with This Data?

There are several different types of information presented by mobile app datasets, available in APIs or CSVs.

Internal data includes user profiles, language, app upgrades, and real-time location via location tracking SDKs.

Alternately, data that may be more publicly available is usage data. Examples include number of downloads, number of active users, average number and duration of sessions per user, and, of course, in-app purchase data.

What Is This Data Used For?

Companies use this data to monitor their performance among existing customers and their promotional campaigns targeting new customers. It also lends itself to market research for companies weighing whether to enter a new market or develop a new app in their suite of products.

How Should I Test the Quality of App Data?

With the millions of mobile apps available and the many sources of data for any of them, the most important test of quality is the seamless integration of data. Naturally, this process must occur constantly.

Once you have collected and standardized the data, focus on proper cleansing.
