Since it was released in the iTunes App Store in 2012, We Heart It has ranked fairly consistently among the top 50 social networking apps. Other mostly unknown apps that consistently rank high on Apple's charts include Keek, a video-centric social network based in Toronto with more than 60 million users; Tapatalk, an app designed to more easily navigate online forums; and Zello, a walkie-talkie app. Not every app company regularly releases user data, but the mysterious algorithm that controls the Apple App Store rankings is a good indicator of popularity, since it takes into account factors such as download volumes and velocity as well as ratings. Networks of friendsThe success of an app depends largely on "viral features, App Store rankings, marketing," and for social apps, how use of the product spreads among networks of friends, said Brian Blau, an analyst with the technology research firm Gartner. "Many people try alternative social apps as they are to some degree looking for a non-Facebook experience focused on something else, like locale, a topic or maybe around a marketplace," he said. The release prompted a jump in its App Store ratings, as well as a rush of articles proclaiming that the company had "gone global" and "finally come to Android."
