New and Rising VS Top Free RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an app which is published 15 days ago, it has great number of downloads. So, I am wondering, why is my app after only two weeks moved to top free. And can someone be so kind to explain me a system of ranking and if there is some tool for following ranking?! Is it depending of number of downloads or reviews or both?

  • Hello Jetza,

    To start, congratulations on the good download numbers, which reflects well built code! 
    To directly answer your question, the actual physical downloads is one of the many metrics that are involved in both categories. Downloads are one piece of a larger algorithm used to determine the apps. We can not give out the specifics to the algorithm, but it sounds like you arte on your way.

    Thank you for the post, hope this help!
