Fiksu Monthly Report: App Downloads Down, Cost Per User Up
ADOTAS - Mobile app user acquisition platform Fiksu reported, in the latest of its monthly indexes, released today, that mobile app downloads dropped slightly during the month of February, while the to acquire users viewed by Fiksu as “loyal” rose slightly. With app downloads hitting record figures (6.79 million) in January, the downturn to 6.35 million in February is perhaps not so tragic — it’s still the second-highest figure in the past several months, besting December’s 6.04 million. With the January spike, one can envision countless people figuring out what they could download onto the mobiles they’d just unwrapped during the holiday season — a statement from Fiksu describes February’s number as “a more steady level.” Fiksu also suggested last month’s mild decline was in part a symptom of how appmarketers responded to Apple’s determination — announced on Feb. 6 – to get tough on robotic app installs.
Meanwhile, with the “Cost per Loyal User” index bumping up 15 percent from January, up to $1.31, Fiksu suggested marketers were ramping up their efforts, pointing toward the spring. Nevertheless, that’s the second-lowest Cost per Loyal User figure since July, January being the lowest.
