iOS downloads link is to a site requiring login

Greg (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Is this intentional? Is there no other place on the Internet that defines what "iOS downloads" means? The "Android installs" link goes to a Google support page which doesn't require login, so I presume these links are not meant to go to WMF-specific data, but instead definitional pages.

It's not intentional - as far as I recall, the page didn't require login when I added the link here (and indeed according to the IA at least some previous versions were public).

I'm copying the most relevant part below:

Downloads - A download is counted when an app is downloaded for the first time from the app store. 
  • iOS - If a user downloads an app under one user account and installs it in multiple devices, this is considered as a single download. Please note that update figures are not included in this figure.

This definition differs slightly from some related ones. If you can find another place on the Internet that contains the same information, please let me know. If it turns out that there is none and that the login requirement isn't just a temporary glitch on App Annie's site, I may add a summary in a footnote instead (disadvantage: would need to be updated in case App Annie makes changes to their definition).

@Tbayer (WMF) maintains this data and can update as appropriate.

Hey Greg, this is not intentional. Are you seeing this page when you click on the link? Is it the "iTunes Preview" web page asking for a login, or does it automatically open iTunes on your computer and then prompt from some credentials? This is very curious and I'd like to help figure out what's going on. My mistake, I misunderstood the question.
