Distimo Launches AppIQ and Leaderboard

App market analytics firm Distimo has launched AppIQ, a data service for developers and financial services companies that provides the daily estimated download and revenue volumes of any iOS or Android app across 40 countries.

The company has also launched Distimo Leaderboard, which enables users to view the top apps every day, by country, category or app store – with supported stores including the Amazon Appstore, Apple App Store, BlackBerry App World, Google Play, Nokia Ovi Store, Samsung Apps, and the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace.

“Our goal is to provide independent and reliable insight into the extremely fragmented app market. It is very common in other market sectors to have access to the performance of your competitors, but it’s been untouched territory in the app store sector,” said Vincent Hoogsteder, CEO and co-founder of Distimo. “Today’s launch of AppIQ and the introduction of the Distimo Leaderboard is the culmination of three years of intense work systematically combined with our drive to provide the best possible valuable and actionable data for anyone building a sustainable business in the mobile ecosystem.”
