5 Good App Blogs & Year-End Statistics

In order to stay competitive, apps are constantly innovating. At times, the updates can be frustrating to members – just think back to every time Facebook updated something and hoopla that followed. It is understandable that consumers would be upset and, while there is little they can do about preventing changes in their favorite apps, there is a great way to stay on top of changes as they happen – company blogs.

Originally embraced as vehicles for self-expression, blogs were soon adopted by brands and apps as a way to tell their story and communicate with their members directly. In addition to all the tech blogs and news outlets dedicated to apps, we recommend getting your information straight from the source as well.

To help you stay on top of the inevitable changes at some of your favorite apps, here’s a short list of blogs we like and recent statistics on each one to give you a sense of why staying current is important. Most apps also offer a developersblogs for more technical information and updates.

Mobile Metrics: Twitter Alone vs Twitter + CoPromote

We can tell you how cross-promotion is the best way to reach new followers. We can talk about “the power of many” until the internet actually breaks. Or, we can let the data speak for itself.

Today, Twitter announced an update that lets you track engagements on their iOS app. The data’s message couldn’t be clearer: Dedicated sharing scales reach!

Now, when you boost a Tweet through CoPromote, you can easily compare the improvement between Tweeting on your own versus boosting through CoPromote’s community of content creators dedicated to sharing.

Don’t take our word for it. Boost a tweet and see for yourself.

Thanks, Twitter!
