Kukapp

Kukapp is web service that tracks the rank, downloads, and popularity ratings of iPhone apps.  Developers can upload iTunes connect reports or have Kukapp automatically retrieve the reports daily in order the track downloads.  The best part about Kukapp is that it’s tracking your app rank right now even if you don’t use the service.  When I uploaded one of my daily reports, Kukapp displayed the daily rank information of my apps back to September.  Developers can track rank, popularity rating, and downloads across multiple categories.  It also tracks key events like updated versions.  Kukapp currently doesn’t offer revenue tracking like the similar service AppFigures, but as the iTunes Connect data is already in their system it’s foreseeable that this feature could be added in the future.

Kukapp is currently a free service in beta.  There are no specific statements of plans to charge in the future, but the site does mention “We transmit all credit card and payment information to our payment provider over SSL” implying that there will be a fee for some portion of the service in the future.

Heartbeat

Heartbeat is an online sales/download tracker and analytics solution.  iTunes Connect daily data reports are tedious to manually download and organize even with a spreadsheet tool.  Hearbeat is the complete solution for analyzing meaningful app sales data at a glance.  Using Heart beat, developers can see sales data, download trends, and balances for each currency.  There is plenty of non-sales related data as well including a crash report tool, application analytics, and even piracy detection.  Altogether, Heartbeat is one of the most complete sales data solutions available, but it’s also one of the most expensive.  Plans at $10/month for two apps on up to $80/month for 20 apps.  Developers can try Heartbeat for free for 30 days.

Appstatz

Appstatz is an online profit and download tracker developed by CrimsonJet LLC, makers of the popular iPhone app, Drum Kit.  With Appstatz, developers can upload iTunes Connect reports and view data in one of 48 different graphs.  Appstatz currently doesn’t support automatic iTunes Connect report downloading like their competitors, but the service is currently in private beta and more features could be introduced in the future.

TapMetrics

TapMetrics may be the new gold standard for iPhone analytics services by combining near real-time iPhone analytics tracking with sales/download reports from iTunes Connect.  Developers can install the analytics package into their app and track events and geolocation in much the same way that they can using dedicated analytics services like Pinch Media or Flurry.  TapMetrics goes a step further by allowing developers to track sales data along side this analytics data in the same online service.  iTunes Connect reports can be manually uploaded, or automatically downloaded to a user’s Mac via the TapMini desktop app.  The great thing about the TapMini app is that there’s no need to store you iTunes Connect password (which can access your iTunes banking information) on a server.  The only drawback to TapMini is the information calculated using the sales reports is rather limited in comparison to a more mature service like AppFigures.  There’s currently no way to view average sales per day or app rankings.  However, TapMetrics is still in beta with a lot of room to grow, so perhaps these features will come along in the future.  TapMetrics is currently free for up to 3 apps.

My App Sales

My App Sales is a unique profit/download tracker from Dr. Touch, the same developer who brought us AntiCrack.  The app downloads iTunes Connect reports for you and displays the results in helpful charts.  You can also review the reports themselves directly on the iPhone.  My App Sales runs on exclusively on the iPhone.  However, The App Store won’t allow applications that access iTunes Connect, so Dr. Touch actually sells the source code to My App Sales via his website.  For $15 developers get a great app to download and store their sales data, and they also get the source code to see how that app was written.

AppFigures

AppFigures is an online profit & download tracker for developers.  The service features automatic syncing to your iTunes Connect account, which means no more downloading reports every morning.  The reports are auto-downloaded and stored on the AppFigures database so you can download them later if you need to.  You can also get these reports auto-emailed straight to your inbox.

The AppFigures online interface is very versatile.  Track any number of apps over any time period while viewing the total profit and number of downloads.  AppFigures will even calculate your expected income for the month for easy comparison to Apple’s official report.

Other features include:

-Rank tracking

- Worldwide review tracking with automatic translation

- Track profit & downloads by country and region

AppFigures is free with the full feature set for 14 days.  Developers can track up to 5 apps with limited features without paying.  For the full featured version of AppFigures you’re looking to shell out $4.99/ month for 2 apps and $1.49 for each additional app.
