, same data, below.

I’ve produced rankings of sports-related apps over the last few years and this is a report on the progress those apps made with their installed user base throughout 2019.

The specific measures that I look at are the NUMBER of reviews and AVERAGE RATING on Google Play. I think these are a good proxy to assess both the magnitude and quality of the interaction that users have with their apps-of-choice.

The apps are also a proxy for device sales. You might assume that a 10% year-on-year increase in reviews for Tacx probably reflect an underlying new user base also growing by 10% ie that they sold 10% more trainers.

Anyway, you are a clever bunch so I hope you can see the benefits and drawbacks of this approach.

I’ve included app links so you can find out more about any apps that might be new to you.

 

This Year’s Results Table

If I’ve missed an important sporty app please let me know and I will add them if they have more than 1000 reviews or if they are noteworthy.
