“Reliable count” again fact check | Pazu Uncle Potato


I used Appfigures.com and 42Matters.com, the two Play Store data analysis websites, and pointed out that the “Anxin Travel” app is suspected of fraud.

I have seen comments trying to use different Play Store data analysis sites, and said that there are no abnormalities in other analysis sites. The two examples cited are Appannie.com and Apptrace.com. I will respond to them one by one. Will shrink like the Director of Innovation and Technology Bureau.

[*****]1. Show suspected of fraud: Appfigures.com

According to Appfigures.com website data, on February 21, 2021, “Travel with peace of mind” in the category of “Health and Fitness” ranked first in the following countries. There are similar results at 42Matters.com.

  • Antigua And Barbuda (Antigua and Barbuda)
  • Bahamas (Bahamas)
  • Belize (Belize)
  • Bermuda
  • British Virgin Islands (British Virgin Islands)
  • Cape Verde (Cape Verde)
  • Cayman Islands
  • China (China)
  • Fiji (Fiji)
  • Guinea-bissau (Guinea-Bissau)
  • Hong Kong
  • Iceland (Iceland)
  • Macao (Macao)
  • Micronesia (Micronesia)
  • Niger (Niger)
  • Papua New Guinea (Papua New Guinea)
  • Solomon Islands (Solomon Islands)
  • Turks and Caicos (Turks and Caicos Islands)

[*****]2. Show suspected of fraud: 42Matters.com

The data graph of 42Matters.com is not as complete as Appfigures.com, but it is generally consistent with what Appfigures.com shows. Check out February 22, 2021, in the Bahamas on the Lukaya Islands on the west side of the Atlantic Ocean, in the health and fitness category, “Travel with peace of mind” still holds the first place.

3. Although it failed to show that it is suspected of fraud: Apptrace.com, after repeated verifications, the data on this website is not reliable

On another Play Store data analysis website, if you click to enter Bermuda to view the data, the data date is February 21, 2021, Google Play Store, Health & Fitness, Existing Apps, Top Free. At first glance, it seems that there is not much abnormality. The “Travel with peace of mind” app ranked 52. Some people tried to point out that because the data in Apptrace is not abnormal, the “Travel with peace of mind” may not be suspected of fraud.

But I have absolutely sufficient reason to question the inaccuracy of this data.

I question the reason for the inaccuracy of Apptrace.com’s data because I also checked the Hong Kong data on Apptrace.com, which was dated February 21, 2021, Google Play Store, Health & Fitness, Existing Apps, Top Free. “Travel with peace of mind” ranks only 46 in the health category in Hong Kong.

I used my Hong Kong IP and Hong Kong Google account to open the Play Store on my Android phone. In the health category, I clearly saw that the number of downloads of the “Safe Travel” app in Hong Kong was the first.

If the Play Store on the Android phone shows that an app is ranked first, but Apptrace.com’s display is actually only 46. My conclusion is that the data of Apptrace.com is not accurate, so I think Apptrace.com’s The data has no substantial reference value.

Fourth, it covers the list of countries/regions, it is difficult to compare comprehensively, but the evidence of “scoring” is found: Appannie.com

Appannie’s data covers fewer countries/regions, and not only include: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kuwait, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom , The United States, Vietnam.

It does not include information on Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Bermuda and other places, so it is difficult to make a comprehensive comparison.

However, if you use Appannie.com to view the data, you can also see some clues of “swiping the rankings” and “swiping reviews”.

Among them, at least 54 users have given five-star reviews with different accounts, but the content of the reviews is exactly the same, writing:

“🈵❤️ Pass the time to open it in the browser,[*****]The largest Chinese entertainment platform, the British supervision is safe and worry-free ❤️ Hundreds of live-action beauty video games, register for free 100 yuan 🧧🧧🧧, live baccarat , (Sports betting-e-sports betting), Niuniu, Mahjong, Landlord, Zhajinhua, Texas Hold’em, Fishing, Slots, Lottery, Electronic, Free games to play, new ways to play, experience endless fun ➤ Free live broadcast of various events around the world ➤🈵🧧」

What’s more ridiculous is that it also includes the following comments, which can be viewed in the Play Store:

“Fun! Diversified career choices, with a cyberpunk 2077 style. Hope for the next episode!”

“Mainly there are healthy religious wisdom blessings. Friends’ travel experience, photography beautiful pictures, Chinese and Western music, etc.”

“The new system has a more convenient taxi function, and the driver takes orders faster. Now it is more favorable to use the app to take a taxi. Three trips are cheaper than taking the bus!”

“Visual enjoyment! I will never be bored again. There is a special trick to tell everyone. Download the version here *****. It can be full V…”

Appannie website showed dubious five-star reviews of “Travel with peace of mind”, with 54 repeated five-star reviews.

[*****]in conclusion:

Based on the above analysis, I believe that the “Travel with Peace” app is suspected of being fraudulent in terms of ratings and downloads.

The Innovation and Technology Bureau tried every means to mislead public opinion, claiming that “many people will go to different places to work or study, or return to Hong Kong with their local mobile phones, and then download “Travel with peace of mind”, and the download record will be changed to other countries and regions.” Explaining why there are a large number of unusual overseas suspicious downloads is undoubtedly an insult to the wisdom of Hong Kong people.

[*****]”Travel with peace of mind” Suspected review and list event book:

  1. One app all the way, the black industry chain that brushes downloads
  2. There are endless tricks of cheating
  3. “Count with peace of mind” and then fact check
