No Just-In List for Android Market? No Problem!
Further proof that Just-In list is not needed
I was wondering how things have gone after the just-in list went missing from Android market apps. Well, for sure my revenue has gone up, and for sure my downloads have had great boosts. Here I am showing further proof why you do not need the Just-In list.
Check out the graphs below. They are my Active Installs as reported by the Android Market. (NOTE: This is just the active installs, not the downloads.)
Check it out, the graphs show some jaggyness on the left end. These are the times I released an update to the market, and my app got listed in the Just-In section, which provided sudden download boosts. Towards the right side, is the market movement currently, most show a smooth upwards move.
Even a game with no major keywords to it has gotten a boost:
And the below are a couple of my apps released recently after the just-in list... they had slowness initially, and then a sudden boost for many many days!
Well, in part, the amount of Android devices increase in the market can be said to be the factor in the recent rise, but then again, this further highlights that we don't need any Just-In lists!
