What does Appgain offer but WebEngage doesn’t?


Uninstall tracking

According to the Harvard Business Review magazine, acquiring new customers can be 5 to 25 times more expensive than retaining existing customers. That’s we offer you the uninstall tracking product. With this product, you can identify
who uninstalled your app and re-target them all over social media.


As our attention spans are constantly shrinking over time, you need to remind your audience of your product multiple times. Data shows that new users need to see your ads at least 7 times before they start to use your app in a daily manner.

Smart Deep Linking

Appgain smart deep linking helps you to improve your app user experience, so your app users move seamlessly & smoothly from all of your channels to your app. They can be routed from the SMS message, email, your website, social ads, etc. to
your specified page instantly.

Data proves that deep links can double your activation rate & engagement rate and increase your user acquisition. Through deferred deep linking your audience can be routed directly to a specific page in your app even if they don’t have
it installed. Through contextual deep linking, you can know the source your users came from, so you can measure each campaign/channel/influencers’ efficiency & ROI. We wrote a detailed article on
