I Can't Find My App

Sometimes you can't find an app by typing its name. Here are some tips to keep in mind.

  • The app you’re looking for has not been launched yet.
  • The app is limited to certain countries or regions. Select a different country if the app is not available in the current country.   
  • AppFollow has its own search algorithms. It means the sequence of search results will not always match what you see on your iPhone, Android, or Windows device.
  • Copy and paste the app's URL into the search field if you're certain that the app should be available.
