Getting featured on the Today Tab is the dream of every mobile app developer, as it can make an app or game popular overnight.

To help the mobile business community get a better understanding of trends in the App Store’s Today Tab, we have conducted research powered by AppFollow App Store Featured Tool to find out which apps and games Apple’s editors gave preference to in 2019.
