With all the commotion and confusion (cf. the appgratis case, Appshopper last year), we wanted to reiterate and clarify how Appsfire works. Some have raised legitimate questions about us and our future, while others will also start imagining things. First and foremost, let’s review what Appsfire is all about:

You can be a very popular app but unappreciated. This has been the case for Facebook for many years, until recently .

This seem to be the case now for Twitter. The attention ported to Twitter to its mobile apps (iPhone and iPad) just does not cut it with users.

We ran a little study on the history of different versions: we compared the evolution of its app score (Appsfire’s own quality score) to its ranking in the App Store.

The conclusion is simple: the quality of the app keeps getting worse and worse. Although a late update yesterday has finally stopped the bleeding. You can see the evolution in the graph below.

The App score of Twitter went down to as low as “10” [meaning Cr-app-y in our own terms]
