Hello! We have a great update—we have finished the cleaning for all paid customers on the following servers: global2, global3 and global4. To learn what server your account is on, please scroll to the very bottom of any page in your AppFollow account, you'll find the name of your server next to "AppFollow" in between brackets.

We are continuing cleaning other servers and also normalizing functionality for all customers, paid and free.

Thank you and stay tuned.

We've been quiet for a while, but we've been working very hard.
Here's what was done to the moment:
We've changed the logic of the review collection to adapt to the most recent changes on the Google Play side.
The amount of data to process is nearly 2 Billion reviews and we already processed about 30% of it.
The process if very slow, and it is impossible to speed it up without affecting the platform performance.
We're incredibly grateful for your patience and will keep you updated.

The issue may affect analytical data (Agent Performance, Reviews & Replies chart, Semantic analysis) gathered before June 15th.
We're expecting the issue to be fixed by July 20th, please wait for the fix announcement to make sure that the data is accurate.

New reviews received after 15.06 shouldn't be duplicated, it is safe to reply to them. We are currently working on removing the duplicates created previously.
We'll keep you notified.

We have discovered that duplicated were caused by the changes made on the Google Play side in a way review ID is saved. We are currently adapting to these changes and continuously monitoring the situation. We have already deleted the majority of duplicates and applied the fix preventing duplicates from being sent to ticketing systems.

Starting from June 7th we can see duplicates of Google Play reviews in AppFollow. We have found the root of the issue and removing all the duplicates now. We would recommend not to reply to these reviews until we have finished the cleaning because the reply might not get posted by the store. More updates to follow.
