What We Stand For
Accurate Data.  Wise Choices.  Great Results.

Gummicube App Store Intelligence is really from the App Stores, including proprietary search trends and semantic data that you simply can't get anywhere else.  We spent three years to create just the right data set and software tuned for App Store Optimization.  We did things the hard way - to provide the only true mobile-from-the-ground-up ASO solution.

We're not misrepresenting information from web search or mashing up Google API's to obtain our core data.  In fact, tools that look or act like a Google Keyword Planner for apps are virtually useless - because they don't reflect how App Store Search really works.

You can't use web based search data or Web SEO techniques for App Store Optimization.  Mobile Apps are a totally different world than websites and App Store Search is a totally different world than Web Search.  The way users search (semantics), what users expect as a search result result and trends are all completely different in the App Stores.

We built our software around the idea that all data should be ACTIONABLE.  We'll help you stop spending hours hunting and pecking one keyword at a time and provide intelligent automation to help you make wise choices quickly.

The Team

Gummicube's team has been developing and distributing mobile apps since 1999 and has been directly involved in App Store Optimization since 2011.  We've been involved in every method of app distribution you can imagine, from the Carrier Deck to Premium SMS to the current App Stores.  That's almost 10 years more experience than anyone who got started in the iOS and Android world.  Now we are focused on App Store Optimization - because search is the future of app distribution.  Put us on your team today.
