Apps, apps, apps. It's all we ever seem to hear about these days (other than cloud), so it makes sense that companies who can apply business intelligence and analytics to app ecosystems are getting some good looks from the moneyed class. That's true of App Annie, whose software is used by 80 percent of the Top 100 grossing Apple iOS app publishers to pull out patterns and data on metrics such as downloads, revenue and in-app purchasing. App Annie in mid-August pulled in $6 million to further its efforts.
