If you have an app, then you know how important user reviews are to your product development. The personalized feedback can empower your team to build apps your users need and create experiences that keep them coming back. But many teams struggle to find a scalable way to analyze all of their reviews, or extract actionable insights from them. This clouds strategy and creates unnecessary roadblocks.

To solve these challenges, we’re excited to announce Review Text Analysis — a powerful new feature built to arm your team with actionable user insights, so you can focus on the work that matters.

Review Text Analysis uses natural language processing to analyze over 1.5 billion app reviews. That’s 1.5 billion personal takes on your product or your competitors’ products, which you can investigate by sentiment, intent, and  keywords. Even better, it’s all laid out in an easy-to-use one-stop shop. You can slice and dice your user reviews using 3 different views:

  • Sentiment: general feeling expressed (positive, negative, mixed, neutral) 
  • Intent: purpose of the review (design, feature requests, bugs, support, etc.)
  • Keywords: most common items of discussion

Intent Analysis

Intent is one of the most critical elements of a review. It’s what drives the user to create the review in the first place. Whether it’s a performance issue or feature request, this information is far more powerful (and actionable) than a simple numerical rating. 

Review Analysis allows you to closely monitor the topics and intents users are proactively talking about. Plus, Identify trends and address them before they grow into a larger problem.

Review Text Analysis in action 

Let’s take a look at Allstate. On April 7, the app experienced a spike in downloads, which resulted in a spike in reviews. At a glance, ‘Performance & Bugs’ and ‘Design’ appeared to be the top concerns.

Reviews indicate that Allstate started issuing policyholders refunds to address the recent decline in driving and accidents due to social distancing. Refunds were only available through their mobile app, which explains the high uptick in downloads. While many users were happy to get refunds and left positive reviews, many had technical issues, too.
