Apptopia is one of the fastest-growing mobile data providers in the world today. While we started the company in 2011, our superpower over the last five years has been our ability to accurately estimate downloads, revenue, and usage performance for every mobile app in the world. As a result, we have built a fast-growing business by providing competitive intelligence to some of today's biggest companies: McDonald's, Target, Visa, Facebook, Microsoft, etc.

In addition, not only are our mobile performance estimates accurate, but they also have a strong correlation with KPIs reported by public companies. As a result, the investment community is one of our faster-growing markets, as our data can be used to get a signal on earnings prior to their release.
