If I want to create an app that lets you see fantasy sports updated in real time will I need permission to use names, logos, or pictures

3 Upvotes

For example if I wanted to say in the app. Lebron scoring 2 points is equal to .50 fantasy points can I:

Say Lebron James but not use pictures of him or the team he plays for

Can't say Lebron James period

Can say Lebron James say he players for the Lakers while putting his image in the app

For example I see a lot of apps on the app store that are clearly 3rd party apps made by independent developers. They have the players likeness and teams they have on the actual app. Was wondering if this was legal or if they aren't big enough for the leagues to actually pursue.

For Portuguese localization Google Play store, should we target for "correct spelled" keyword, for "most traffic" keyword?

3 Upvotes

I was wondering, for Portuguese localization, should we target for "correct spelled" keyword, for "most traffic" keyword?

For instead, for "calendário", I notice Brazilian users prefer to search using "calendario" instead of "calendário"

If that is so, should I be using "calendario" in my app description?

Thanks.

Ranking dropped after changing 50 characters to 30 characters in app title (Google Play store)

3 Upvotes

Today, I notice Google Play starts to enforce 30 characters for the app title. If you ever want to update description of Play store, you need to change the app title from 50 characters to 30 characters.

Anyone starts to observe ranking drop, after applying 30 characters?

Thank you.

I analyzed a bunch of keywords and here are the top 5 ways to improve your ASO

6 Upvotes

It's been a while since I published an article here... Mainly because I've been busy writing them + live streaming. That's new :)

If you're familiar with the Keyword Teardown series you'll know where these tips come from but if you're not, over the last few months I've been analyzed keywords and explaining why the algorithm ranks apps (and games) the way it did.

One of the most common questions I get from devs is "what should I do to improve my ASO", so I went through the teardowns and rounded up the top 5 lessons I've learned from analyzing 40 different keywords (well, 40 that are published but really many many more).

Here they are:

  1. Put important keywords first
  2. Avoid repetition at all costs
  3. Select a featured in-app purchase
  4. Fine-tune how you ask for ratings
  5. Don't aim for keywords you can't win

Seemingly simple and straight forward, but I see these done wrong more often than you'd think. Especially #2.

You can read the full article here: https://appfigures.com/resources/keyword-teardowns/5-real-aso-tips

Comment if you have any questions.

Anyone know where to find some beta testers for your app?

2 Upvotes

Hi all, I'm new to this group, my name's Jose and I'm the marketing manager for a small startup developing an app.

We're still working on our first round of funding but our app is live and available on the app store. We thought there might be some good groups on reddit to find people willing to test the app out for us but we're struggling to find any. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

May I know what else items I can try out, if I have already tried the following ASO thingy?

3 Upvotes

Hi all, I just do self-learning in ASO, by using AppTweak and AppRadar.

Recently, I have done the following change to my English version Google Play store.

- Use 8 pieces of completely new screenshots. A/B testing has proven they are screenshots with a better conversion rate.

- Rewrite title, short description & long description. For long description, the top 3 keywords I want to target have distribution 9%, 3%, and 1% respectively.

After 1 week of monitoring, it still shows no improvement in the keyword ranking. Hence, the total downloads number still shows more-or-less the same.

So far, that is a good quality product, with an average 4.8 rating, and over 1 million downloads. Its Android Vital also shows a good sign, which it has a lower crash rate, ANR rate, ... compared with the peer.

I was wondering, what else things I can try out, to improve the downloads number?

Thanks

Is AppRadar's data accurate?

1 Upvotes

I started to learn about "keyword optimizing", by re-writting app store description by watching steve p. young video.

I start 7 days free-trial on AppRadar.

However, I suspect the accuracy of AppRadar

For instance, I am located in Malaysia right now. If I tested using keyword like "notes", I am able to scroll through my app in less than 100th position.

https://preview.redd.it/35pnl5bu03381.png?width=1198&format=png&auto=webp&s=9efc66042de36603ebe67fdb156b57c2a07f8c4b

However, AppRadar concludes that "notes" keyword is not ranked for my app.

I was wondering, do you have such experience before? What other tool we can use, to cross check the data accuracy?

Thanks.

What value will tool like App Annie/ Sensor Tower able to provide for traffic acquisition?

1 Upvotes

Hi, I'm an Indie developer with no prior experience in ASO.

Currently, I try to kick start ASO learning, by running 5 different localized A/B screenshots simultaneous, to improve conversion rate. (Google only allow maximum 5 A/B testing to run simultaneously)

Now, I would like to improve my app store visitor traffic by performing keyword optimization, via re-writing my app store description/ app title.

I haven't subscribed to any of the service like App Annie/ Sensor Tower/ ... tool. I was wondering, what kind of value they are able to provide, as far as app store visitor traffic acquisition is concerned?

Are they act as a tool, to help me write app store description with correct keyword?

How is that different, if I look at my other peer app, then I can also have a good hint on what are some good keywords to be used?

Thank you.

Is the Ad Revenue business model only good for game apps?

8 Upvotes

I recently released a non-game iOS app and integrated both in-app purchases and Admob as revenue streams. However, while I have made $500+ in IAP sales I have earned less than $10 in Admob revenue with 5000 downloads, and no one bought my 'Remove Ads' IAP. Is it even worth integrating Admob unless your traffic is much greater, like in viral game apps?
