Overview

AppFollow Tableau Integration helps in processing data from AppFollow directly into Tableau via Web Data Connector. Tableau is one of the most popular BI dashboards for data analysis and visualization. We offer a secure and easy way to gather all the data from AppFollow, like Downloads & Revenue, Reviews, or ASO scores (coming soon) and transfer it in Tableau.
