    Last year Apple launched ‘Popular Near me’ feature in iOS 7 from its apps store. It provides you right to download the list of commonly used app in your area from the other app store. It increases the latest or freshest level of contextual relevancy to app store discovery; it helps the user to use earlier app which he has installed but forgotten to use yet. It keeps more visitor loyalty or attention on used apps and which drive more visitors and making it more worth for their time for developer who made deep effort to build that integration into software.

    Contextual smarts now booming in the Smartphone platform; Google also suffer due to its feature and good functionality but moving forward we can find that by providing prompt that can lead any action in any particular location of any part.  User feel that this new feature is not enough unobtrusive which can intruded by any suggestion on them.

    Still we have to wait for what new updates with this feature and how developer builds it to the market for getting more leads.
