This dashboard will tell app marketers how much revenue their apps are making from 20 sources. And it will tell mobile advertisers how their ad campaigns are performing across 10 to 15 networks.
As of today, App Annie’s analytics solution isn’t just about apps anymore. Now, publishers can get detailed statistics about their digital book sales from the app store analytics solution as well.
After carving out a solid niche in the mobile economy with in-depth app analytics, App Annie announced today that it has scored $15 million in a third round of funding led by Sequoia Capital.
Mobile gaming is leading a surge in consumer spending.
Google continues to hold the top spots on the iOS app store, with Google Maps and YouTube taking the first and second most-downloaded spots. And Google Earth jumped from being the 31st to the 9th most downloaded app on iOS in July.

The company is also introducing a new API and more up-to-date information.

You know the old story about statistics and liars, right? Statistics lie, and liars use statistics, or so the old saw says. There’s a good reason for that: statistics are so damn easy to lie with. Even when you don’t mean to.

It all started from the concept of a slippery slope. Combine the snowball effect online shopping can have on susceptible consumers (present company included), a company founded in the Swiss Alps, and an iPad app vaguely reminiscent of snow, and my Funding Daily horizon was filled with mountainous peaks. Let’s see which companies set off on the trails of venture capital.
