What is an app tracker app?

An app tracker application is a web, mobile, or desktop app that enables users to track and manage applications. App tracking apps typically include interfaces for searching for an application and viewing the application's details, including its name, version number, description of permissions it requests from users, and user reviews of the app. Some apps may also include interfaces for uninstalling an application or viewing the history of updates.

App trackers are similar to security and monitoring apps, but they are also often used for project management, time tracking, and task management. Some of the most popular apps of this type include RescueTime, Toggl, Harvest, and a number of Hootsuite apps.

Here are some recent app tracker app examples built with Crowdbotics:

How to successfully grow your app tracker application

An app tracking software company can grow by making it easier for users to do basic tracking, which will attract new users. App tracking software companies need to provide value for a wide range of users from different industries (for example, they can sell tracking software to auto manufacturers as well as to insurance companies). Once an app tracker has established its market-leading position, it can add more advanced features and also use data about their user base to generate growth through advertising.

Risks and challenges of building a app tracker application

An app tracking app is at risk of becoming a platform for cyberbullying or stalking if it does not implement robust privacy and safety measures. It is recommended that an app tracker provide users with the ability to report abuse, block other users, and take strong precautions to ensure that user identity information is kept confidential. It is also recommended that an app tracker implement strong privacy policies and terms of service to avoid being liable for negligent data handling practices.
