App upgrade = download +1?

Simple question. When my app gets its update approved, and then pushed to everyone with a PlayBook who has downloaded my app for "upgrade", does the upgrade count as a download as reported in the Reports page in the Vendor Portal?

Yes.

Every download is counted in reports no matter if it is an upgrade or new download.

 

However if your app is paid, purchase reports will show only new purchases (upgrade is not counted as purchase)

Oh lame, and here I thought I had hit an all time high for downloads in a single day... really it was just everyone upgrading... boo.

This is pretty dumb, why do I really care if people are upgrading...

Looking at the bright side - you will know how much people still use your app after the initial download. Only people who update the app actually use it, the others probably have already deleted it.

yeah,I had that omg moment on my first update too Smiley Happy

 

I was using the downloads because it seemed to give a clearer picture (one purchase = one download), but I guess we need to search by purchases to get what we need. also I think redownloading the same version counts too, if they delete then reinstall etc. so even without the updates it's not very accurate.
