New App Report

Photoby Ryan Buckley on May 16, 2016

There were 16,185 new iOS apps released the week 5/5–5/11.


On average, a “legitimate” app had 16.4 SDKs. We gauged “legitimate” by an app with seven or more ratings. Two years ago, the estimate was that apps had, on average, seven SDKs.

SDK installs amongst new apps was very similar to last week’s. A developing segment of SDKs is game engines. We tracked the #16 most popular SDK being Unity3d, and the #21 most popular SDK being Cocos2d.


Here are a just few of the new apps we detected that were advertising. In total, MightySignal is tracking tens of thousands of app advertisements.
