App Store Update: July 24.

To keep the playing field level and fair for all app developers, Apple on occasion changes the way its App Store ranking algorithm works, the fallout of which can impact developers’ standings in the App Store charts, which ultimately can impact their visibility, downloads, and revenue. In what is quickly being recognized as the most significant Apple promo to date, an extremely wide ranging smorgasbord of games and apps is being made simultaneously available for $0.99 each. We have sifted through the noise and highlighted those select few that might be worth your attention. “Divide By Sheep is a math puzzler about the Grim Reaper’s devious plan to make some sheepy friends. There are a number of ways to spot a possible rankings change, but one of the easiest is to keep an eye on the rankings of top mobile apps, like Facebook and others. Thomas has been compiling IGN’s App Store Updates since 2012 – and when he’s not doing that, he’s compiling magazine pages as the Editor-in-Chief of NF Magazine (a.k.a.

Listen, Apple Insider agrees, see: “While many ‘Amazing Apps & Games’ have been around for some time, the Apple promo is a good opportunity to stock up on quick fix games, popular tools normally priced well above a dollar and franchise pieces missing from your collection.” If that’s not enough to pique one’s interest, Apple’s also announced the implementation of everyone’s favorite implicit social activity: a “daily game/app roundup” of the highest trending apps of the week, which will study how you use and but and even mention such apps in hopes of pushing sales and accessibility up via Apple’s “New App of the Week” promo, which is guaranteed to be “curated and genre-specific collections, first-party apps and select third-party apps compatible with services like Apple Pay.” The megalithic sale displays these new essential goodies by customizing its categorization process individually, each user to his or her own preference. Some trending categories include smart tools, photography lovers, Apps for Kids, and Game Hits. “Sections like ‘Game Hits’ feature more recent additions like Goat Simulator, while lesser known games such as God of Light are surfaced in ‘more Games to Explore.’ Classic including the original Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja are highlighted in App Store Veterans,” decrees Apple Insider. Facebook’s iPad app offers a good example of the change, as its app moved from a No. 2 position in “Social Networking” and a No. 7 ranking “Overall” the day before, down to No. 4 and No. 24, respectively, on Friday, and then it crashed to No. 38 in “Social Networking” and a practically invisible No. 858 “Overall” by Monday.

There are of course many other ways to feed your inner gamer’s need to be entertained-in-transit, or fill a lazy afternoon with something more rewarding than reruns of things which may have “moved you.” Why not give Rayman Jungle Run a go, or The Room Two, or burn rubber with Real Racing. But yes, friends, in addition we also will have full access to Apple’s opulent software apps, like Simple Machine, Pixelmator, Bubl Draw, Facetune and Faded, and all of these are merely a random amalgam from a list I’m staring at right now. We reached out to mobile marketing firm Fiksu, which confirmed that it had also observed non-standard App Store behavior beginning last Friday that affected iPad rankings over the course of several days. “The apps that dropped have jumped significantly back up today,” noted Fiksu’s Chief Strategy Officer, Craig Palli on Wednesday, “but not all of them have returned to the ranks that they were at before the drop started on Friday,” he says. Ex-Apps, Apple’s App store’s also made available Google’s newest and smoothest YouTube update to all whom have interest, still, and this means you can watch your vids vertically displayed in a full screen mode, whether you prefer to produce or ogle others’ work. “This is the first time they’ve all appeared together in one giant sale.

Now is your chance to fill up your app library, as we are seeing all-time lows on games, productivity apps, photography apps and much more,” suggested 9to5Toys. While many reported that, by later in the week, their apps’ rankings returned to “normal,” or at least close to where they were before, that wasn’t true for everyone. In some cases, their adjusted ranking represented only a small to medium-sized move – like say, just a few slots or as many as 10 slots lower or higher than before, to cite a couple of examples.

I don’t know about you, but so many times I see a movie trailer and think “I want to see that.” Well, with this app you can keep track of those movies that are on your wish list and get helpful details on the films too. For instance, one developer who had one of their best sales day ever thanks to a promotion they were running found they had fallen out of the Top Grossing charts after the algorithm change.

Others said that keywords they used to rank for now no longer pulled up their app in search at all, or they saw a significant drop in their popular keywords after the changes. If Apple only focused on some subset of these methods when making its adjustments, it follows that only some subset of apps would be affected long-term following the change. So, when it is time to get ready for your vacation, plan your movie night at the theater, and check out your Instagram feed, these three apps can definitely come in handy. At the end of the day, what’s most interesting about this particular change is that it much more heavily affected iPad applications, instead of iPhone apps.

That could indicate that Apple was looking to better its rankings for those who are building specifically for Apple’s tablet, and possibly rewarding the better iPad apps in the process.
