appScatter Group said it continued to make steady progress towards the public launch of the appScatter platform.

The company announced completion of its App Store Data API service which, as outlined at the IPO in September , commercialises the significant app store dataset gathered by appScatter. 

The company said it had  been collecting daily app data in order to rank information and publisher details from app stores since 2014. 

It said: 'The API Service provides appScatter's licensed users with access to the company's wealth of historical app store data, including app intelligence from the Apple App Store, the Google Play store and 15 major alternative app stores worldwide.'

 The company said it expected the newly monetised App Store data to be a valuable forecasting and planning tool for app developers and app designers across all business sectors.   Access to the API Service is available with immediate effect, on a subscription basis.

Founder and chief executive Philip Marcella  said: 'We are delighted with the progress the company has made since the IPO in September 2017 and by opening access to our app store data via the API Service, we are able to monetise the significant data set that we have gathered from a range of app stores.

'We continue to make steady progress towards the public launch of the appScatter platform and look forward to the future with confidence.'
