How To Use Versions

Versions allows you to easily compare the sentiment of your different app versions at a glance. It is designed to help you determine if a new version is a success, or if users are responding negatively to the changes you implemented.

Navigate to Versions by choosing ‘Versions’ from the left navigation. Versions are only available if you have selected an iOS app.

Use the ‘Versions Over Time’ chart at the top of the page to see when reviews for each version grew and fell. Hovering over any point on the timeline will show you how many reviews each app version received on that particular day.

You can toggle each version on and off in the chart, just by clicking on the legend at the bottom of it.

Below the ‘Versions Over Time’ chart you will see a list of all the different versions for your app.  For each version you can see:

  • a measure of the positive to negative sentiment,
  • how many reviews that particular version has received,
  • what percentage of the overall reviews that version makes up and
  • a timeline of the review quantity.

Sorting The List

 

Clicking on any version from the list will show you a full page analysis for that particular app version, together with the full list of reviews. You can also add filters at the top of this page to refine the results further.

Top Uses For Versions

Versions makes it easy to understand how your users feel about each new update.

You should be aiming to see increasing proportions of positive sentiment and rapid adoption for each new version. Slow adoption might indicate that poor reviews or word of mouth are deterring users from updating.

Why can’t I see Versions for my Google Play apps?

App version is publicly available for each review on the Apple App Store, but not on the Google Play Store. To use Versions for Google Play apps you need to connect your Google Play Developer Console to Appbot.
