There’s a lot of speculations regarding featuring in such lists as “top free apps” in Google Play Store. What we know is that such lists are not made randomly and it’s kind of a big deal to break into these categories. We decided to quickly list the main conditions that “top free apps” list acquire.
1) So, first of all, it’s the number of downloads. The apps featured in “top free apps” receive a lot of installs from the day one which brings them to high positions by popular keywords. So the best strategy is to make sure your app starts receiving downloads right after its launch.

The longer your app stays on the users’ device the better for you and your ranks. So make your app user-friendly and comfortable to use.
4) Reviews and ratings from users
Well, this is a hard one as most users don’t leave comments on your app’s page even if they like it. So the way out is to simply ask them. Push-notifications can help a lot. Show your users that their opinion is interesting to you and they will be more willing to rate and review your app. And don’t forget to answer, your audience will appreciate it!
