We’re excited to announce the results for the January 2019 app mining cohort:
This month, we added a new reviewer, TryMyUI. They provided recorded user testing, so that apps can get clear feedback and see their apps being used in the wild. Check out their blog post that introduces our partnership and explains their ranking criteria. App developers will get access to view all of the user testing videos that were created for their app.
Just like we did last month, we are publishing our raw data in an effort towards transparency. I’ve added a new tab to the same spreadsheet from last month, so just view that link and click on the ‘January 2019’ tab.
Also worth noting is that this is the first month that we’ve added the ‘memory’ function to our ranking algorithm, which incorporates your previous scores when determining your final score for the month. You can learn more about that in our blog post from the algorithm designers in the section ‘Aggregation over time’.
Please feel free to discuss the results, ask questions, or provide feedback here or on Slack.
Also, a reminder that we have an open meeting around app mining on Wednesday, January 23rd at 11am PST. I hope you can join!
