Introducing Subscription Analytics

Subscription Analytics for iOS and Android Apps from Appfigures

Subscriptions are slowly taking over the app store. From calorie counting apps to text editors, many developers have started shifting their businesses towards recurring revenue.

To support the many developers who are monetizing with subscriptions, we’re rolling out a new report that focuses on tracking and analyzing the performance and revenue of subscriptions.

Essential Metrics

We designed the new subscriptions report to offer a consolidated view that’s easy to understand at a glance but also to dig in. The result is a familiar report that bring together the most important subscription metrics for all of your iOS, Mac, and Android apps.

The new report includes all of the metrics reported by the stores, as well as a set of calculated metrics like Churn and MRR and also aggregate metrics like Transitions.

17 New metrics:

  • Essential – Active subscriptions, Revenue, Activations, Cancellations
  • Advanced – MRR, Churn, 1st-Year/Non-1st-Year Subscriptions
  • Trial – Active trials, New Trials, Cancelled Trials, Trial Conversion Rate
  • Details – Transitions, Cancelled Subscriptions, New Subscriptions, Reactivations, Renewals

The new metrics can be viewed over time, by country, or for your entire app portfolio. Using the built-in overlay system you can also compare different metrics easily.

API Access

In addition to the new reports, we’ve also add a new route to the API so you can access subscriptions programmatically.

  • Awesome. Is this for iOS AND Google Play or only iOS?

    • Glad you like it Alex. The new subscriptions report works with BOTH iOS apps AND Android apps on Google Play (and also for Mac apps, just in case).

        Actually, the MRR is not calculated for Android. This was annoying to discover after spending quite some time trying to find why there are discrepancies in the numbers
