How are your users using your App – Analytics

The Problem :

You have tens of thousands of users and you are very happy about blowing past the chicken-egg problem of acquiring users. But now you have a new set of problems.

  • You have no idea how people are using your app?
  • Which screens do your users use the most?
  • How often do they use your app?
  • On an average how long doe they use your app for (Session length)?
  • Which countries or states have the most users? etc etc etc.

These are common questions which any app developer should have. And you can always solve it by adding lot of logging and write complex SQL queries to mine this information. But don’t you think this ought to be a common problem and there ought to be a common solution for this? Just like Google Analytics and other services work for your website.

The Solution :

The answer is yes !! There are quite a few products which allow you to do this. What we have used in Loqly –bit.ly/e5u4jv is a free product called Flurry Analytics. This is an excellent product and the best part is it is free. What more can you ask for. The amount of data you can gather is mind blowing. And it presents it nicely in a graph too. Even my grandma can see those graphs and answer all the above questions for me 🙂

    Thank you very much. This is exactly what I had been searching.
    Only one thing to be worry: Is it slow down my apps, and does it make Apple to reject apps?
