Apps have become central to nearly everyone’s daily lives, and as such, are indicators of consumers’ entertainment, lifestyle, media and purchasing habits. Do you know what motivates your consumers' choices and decisions? What influencers have they been really engaged with lately? And what was their recent in-app purchase? Answers to these and other questions could bring a better understanding of who your current and new consumers are and tailor your user and market insights strategy accordingly.
