AdAction celebrates its featured placements on the AppsFlyer Performance Index – alongside companies such as Google, Twitter, and Facebook. The index rankings offer a comprehensive “report card” on the mobile media landscape. For the fifth consecutive year, we received several high-quality rankings.

About the AppsFlyer Performance Index

AppsFlyer started the Performance Index in 2015 and made significant changes in 2020, delivering five different indices to rank media sources: IAP (in-app purchases), IAA (in-app advertising), Retention, Remarketing, and Growth. Each index has both a volume and power ranking list as well as different classifications for ranking, including region, industry, categories, and operating systems.

The IAP Index, which ranks media sources based on their ability to deliver users with a high chance of completing an in-app purchase, and the IAA Index, a measurement of a media sources’ capacity to deliver users who monetize best with ads, are both new. 

In addition to ranking platforms, the AppsFlyer report delivers key findings about the mobile app marketing landscape with insights on social network channels, Android vs. iOS scale, and more.

Ranking Methodology

The ranking methodology included evaluations of 495 media networks with a minimum of 50,000 attributed installs, 27 billion installs, 14,000 apps, and 58 billion app opens. AppsFlyer looks at the volume of attributed non-fraudulent installs. The data for the index covered January to June of 2020.
