Hi xxx,

We started Distimo five years ago with the clear goal of providing the most accurate and actionable app data for anyone who wants to compete in the mobile marketplace. And it’s been a fantastic five years. ­We’ve built great technologies and products that have allowed you to really understand the app marketplace and take action on those insights. We’ve been very proud to serve some of the most exciting companies in the app ecosystem.

Our vision continues to grow, and it is with that ambition that we feel joining the App Annie team is the best next step for us to realize our goal of building the most complete platform for analyzing the app marketplace. We’re very excited to join a team that shares a common vision, and with the accumulated resources of both companies, we’re best equipped to serve your business.

So what happens to the Distimo products? We’re going to be working closely with the App Annie team to integrate and merge all our best features and technology into the App Annie platform. It is at this time that we will enact a smooth migration process. App Analytics and AppIQ customers will receive emails with more detail explaining the process ­ so be on the lookout in your inbox.

If you have any questions whatsoever, feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. We’re excited about this next phase in our journey and we hope you are too.


Vincent Hoogsteder
CEO Distimo
