While our download and revenue data is based on models created by our data science team, our SDK data is factual. Our proprietary SDK Recognition technology tracks what SDKs are installed or uninstalled from the top 500,000 free apps across both the App Store & Google Play, accounting for approximately 10,000 monitored SDKs.
To do so, we:
- Download the app
- Decompile the app
- Decrypt the app
- Analyze the code and fingerprint (recognize) which known SDKs are currently installed in the app.
The SDK Recognition technology is automatically deployed every time an app pushes out a release, creating a timeline of every tool the app has worked with. In addition, API call data goes beyond install and uninstall data to provide granular insight into the specific SDK features being used by each app.
We currently track every major SDK accounting for approximately 10,000 SDKs. And in the chance a customer needs data on a lesser-known SDK, we can provide it within 72 hours.
