For organic users the break down is approximately 35.8% for Day 1 retention whereas 4.1 for Day 30 retention. Among non-organic users the retention rates are 27.3% and 3.5% respectively.
But rankings play a quite crucial role in order to successfully strive the cut throat competition. Hence it is quite essential to understand that system of organic ranking works distinctly as far as App Store and Google Play Store are concerned. In order to give the optimum exposure to the Google Play Store Android app description must be loaded up with essential features and descriptions. Google Play relies more on app usage rate, hence the app development must focus on developing the app that has a higher user ratio.
