Quotes from Anton Tatarynovich:
I think a lot of companies still approach ASO as new, even though it’s been around for a quite a few years.
Essential ASO tools – two main ones, obviously the App Store Connect and Google Play Store Console. That’s pretty much are high level analytics what we check day to day to understand how the app is doing.
It’s really the key to align performance marketing and ASO for apps, especially when the sheer of downloads coming from paid sources is substantial.
