Every month there are more great articles and content about the business of Mac and iOS development than we have time to discuss on the show.

Today’s episode is sponsored by Appfigures. Appfigures has always been great at getting all your stats from the App Store, but recently they’ve been diving deep into App Store optimization. Because they have access to so much more of the App Store’s daily statistics than anyone else, they are able to present a much more detailed picture of how your competitors are doing, and how they are winning the app store optimization wars. Armed with that data, you can fight back with some relatively simple maneuvers that can improve your rankings in specific search terms and thus increase your downloads. So if it’s been a while since you’ve thought about Appfigures, go to their blog and check out their excellent series of posts about app store optimization.
