How to Use Words

As the name implies, the Appbot Words page analyzes all of the keywords in your app reviews. It presents you data that shows how frequently each one appears, the patterns in how often it is being used and a breakdown of the sentiment for reviews containing that word.

At the top of the page you will see 6 tabs; Interesting, Popular, Critical, Trending Up, Trending Down and New. We’ll explain each one below.

Clicking on any word in the list will take you to the reviews that mention it.

Reading reviews that are similar can help you to identify important trends that are occurring in only a small portion of your total reviews.
