Written by Marie Pireddu  on  Friday 13 August 2021

If you are not familiar with what an .apk file is, know that it is the file that is produced as the result of the development of your app. Android Package Kit (APK) is the file format used to distribute and install apps and make them work on Android devices. 

Google announced at the beginning of the summer that the AAB format will now replace the APK (Android Package).

"From August 2021, new apps will have to be published using the Android App Bundle format and meet the target API level 30 (Android 11)."

Let's dig a bit deeper into what's new with Android 11 and how it impacts your GoodBarber Android app.

How to write a compelling App Store listing

Written by Marie Pireddu  on  Friday 21 May 2021

We previously wrote articles on ASO ( App Store Optimization) and the mistakes to avoid,  but today we wanted to dig a little deeper into the writing side of an App Store listing. We will focus on the App Store description and how and where to use keywords.

The App description is where you have the opportunity to tell visitors why they have to download your app. It's your chance to connect with them and highlight your app benefit. It must be writing carefully. However, on the App Store, the description is not a ranking factor. So for your ASO, you need to pay close attention to the keywords and where to use them (keyword field, App name, App subtitle)

As a reminder, the ranking factors on the App Store are the app name, the subtitle, the keyword field, and then the ratings, reviews, updates, downloads, and engagement.
