App Index Testing

The appbackr App Index is a growing catalog all of the Android apps available on Google Play. Apps are added to the index after they are reviewed through our behavior analysis, technical evaluation, and sentiment analysis processes.

The App Index is the most comprehensive analysis of the app ecosystem, where users can filter and find apps based on their needs and interests. The effort to compile the millions of data points that make up the world’s apps results in the App Index becoming the world’s largest resource for app information, and its organization and taxonomy makes all the available app data useful and efficient for users.

appbackr’s App Index will go live in January 2015. The index will be a catalog of Android apps that we have manually reviewed in one of three areas – behaviors, technical evaluation or sentiment. Each app’s data is posted onto one page, in addition to its logo, description, and select editorial reviews. These early pages are being posted online for additional testing; they are a small sample that represents the data we have. You are welcome to use the pages to find the apps you want.

If you are an app developer and you would like to request your app to be reviewed, send us an email at reviews@appbackr.com. We are reviewing apps sequentially via the subcategory system that we have developed, but we are able to include additional apps to the queue.

If you are a developer of a reviewed app and have additional questions or want to contribute to the page, you can also write us at reviews@appbackr.com.

The preview app card pages up for testing is listed below. Look out for the App Index in 2015.

What is appscore?

appbackr built a data-driven ranking system that analyzes an app’s behaviors, technical performance, and user sentiment – including user reviews, user ratings, and downloads – to measure how well an app does what it’s supposed to do.

That information, based on publicly available data from Google Play, is compiled into an app’s 0-10 value: the appscore.

appbackr is systematically tagging and compiling the world’s apps along with their appscores through the App Anatomy™ Project. This effort uses our technology to build the App Index, the most comprehensive analysis of the app ecosystem. Learn more at appbackr.com
