Developers and app marketers could be wasting a massive chunk of the investment made in user acquisition if push notifications aren’t being sent to those that opt in to them, according to analytics company Urban Airship. How much? A massive 95 cents for every dollar spent on acquisition, as just 5% of users continue to use the app 90 days after it was first opened. The company says at least a quarter of users that opt-in to notifications don’t receive any in that time, revealing a lack of engagement that may end up being very costly. In a press release, Urban Airship says: “Not only is sending zero push notifications a massive waste of user acquisition investments, it ignores an important and direct channel to

Instead of the beginning for the year, being prime dating app user acquisition time, it’s June that sees the highest registration numbers, with 53% of users registering after installing a dating app, a figure that continues into July, August, and even September. Subscription rates also peak at this time, with an average 3.1% in July and 3% in August.

Depending on which category your app is in, the user retention rate may vary dramatically, according to data shared by app analytics experts at SurveyMonkey Intelligence. Additionally, it also illustrates the difference between the average median engagement value, and those that occupy both the top 20% and bottom 80%. App engagement data shows how often an app is used each week In an entirely unsurprising turn of events, it’s weather apps that manage the highest retention rate and the lowest amount of time spent in an app per day — topping three times per week, and less than 100 seconds each time on average. However, look more closely and you’ll see the most popular weather apps still capture a users attention in a strong way,

Mobile engagement platform Urban Airship says the traditional marketing funnel approach to user acquisition and engagement is out of date, and has come up with an alternative called the “Mobile Engagement Loop.” The idea is the funnel has an obvious end point, while the loop continues to assess growth and opportunities to re-engage with users. Urban Airship’s Mobile Engagement Loop Following the app download, there are four stages in the loop — onboarding, conversion, retention, and finally re-engagement. The loop makes it easier to visualize the engagement lifecycle, and is designed as a single exercise, rather than individual stages. Urban Airship writes: “Successful mobile engagement does not follow a traditional funnel approach — viewing your customer’s journey through the mobile engagement loop will ensure a
