    Is there anyway to track app downloads and reviews if I am paying someone to download an app? So basically if I tel 10 people to download a certain app without changing the code or adding any amalytics within the app itself is there a way to know who downloaded (sucessfully) the app amd also left a review?

    not sure if this is what you want, but you can track the number of times a url is clicked by using a msql table.

    Thanks for the response. But sometimes a successful click isnt just a download. Is there anyway to ensure the download has been made?

    if the url goes directly to the file (not the page) then you can tell if it was downloaded.
    www.domain.net/file.zip

    This just made me wonder..

    In AdWords PPI program, do they bind tracking software to the app or consider a click to download a conversion even if the person cancels and doesn't install?

    Monitor your avg downloads per day over 2 weeks, say 30 per day.

    Then just subtract that from whatever you get when the seller is delivering to you.
