appannie.com reports?

www.appannie.com

Did anyone have any success of making the sales reports work?

Their presentation looks like it can be a useful service.. It got me interested enough to try to create a limited itunes connect user and try to import it...
however this did not work, for some reason. So now I am wondering if it's some kind of phishing site, trying to hijack itunes accounts or get a hold of banking info.. I hope I am wrong...

[update] The problem is resolved now - seems like a great site to track your app sales..

I haven't created an account with them. I've only looked at the free data they have on their site that you don't need to sign up or have an account to see.

If you're concerned, you might want to change your itunes connect password.

Worked for me and it's a freakin awesome site. Thinking of canceling my Applyzer account.

@mobilainteractive,

We apologize for not catching this problem earlier! Please send an e-mail to support@appannie.com and we'll try to pinpoint the problem and get your account running.

And don't worry... we're not a phishing site

FYI, we're working on the functionality to manually upload sales reports without needing to enter your iTunes Connect info. It's actually done and is in the testing stages at the moment.

I wouldn't worry too much, all the big app analysis services usually get your itunes connect login. the tricky part is verifying if the services are legit or not. this being the first time hearing of appannie, there would need to be clarification.

I will always and forever use appsales-mobile, but your site/service looks really great.

Just tried this and it looks pretty slick. The app rank and history section has a nice interface with easily accessible data. Also records when the app made it onto n&n lists so I can easily compare w/ ranks.

I'll probably switch from TopAppCharts to AppAnnie when I do research on apps from now on.

Indeed, it's definitely better. I could also retrieve "historical" data for my games (interesting that these stats are stored by Apple).
However I've read somewhere that AppAnnie might not provide this service for free forever.

Hi there!

I've been looking at the free information you give out on your website. It's very helpful and the best I've seen so far. I like how you have the top 500 charts as well as storing previous data. So will you keep this info free? And secondly, does Apple only supply the top 500 charts or could you have the top 1000? Thanks!

@bravetarget, @MrBlue: Thanks for the comments!

@Carlos: All the ranking information (for all apps under the "Store Stats" section) will be free forever. Only the App Care section, with sales and reviews tracking will be subscription-based once we come out of beta.

@drewse: The Apple charts actually go up to about 1000 (or around there, it's different for each category/country). We get as much as we can, but only show top 500. If you look at individual apps though you'll see that there are rankings in the 700s, 900s, etc.
