Switching to the New App Analytics (a.k.a. Analytics v2)

edited April 2013 in Announcements

With Andromo App Maker for Android v3.0.6, we’ve implemented the latest version of the Google Analytics library: Analytics v2.

This will give you access to better, more app-specific information,
letting you track usage of your app as an App instead of as a Web site.

What is Google Analytics?

Google Analytics lets you measure user interactions with your app,
anonymously tracking actions that the user performs, without ever
sending any identifying information.

As your app is used, Google Analytics will track a wide variety of
anonymous usage statistics, such as the number of visits to each
activity within your application, and the average amount of time your
users spent there. It can even report how often your users launch your
app (look for “Recency” under “Engagement” and “Behavior” in the list of
Google Analytics reports).

This can give you valuable insight into how your users interact with your apps, helping you make your apps even better.

New Preference Settings

We’ve also added a new preference setting to Andromo apps, giving
users the ability to opt out of analytics tracking in the application.
This helps ensure that all Andromo apps comply with the Google Analytics SDK Policy.

Making the Switch

As of version 3.0.6 of Andromo, you need to use an App analytics code
instead of a Web one — your old Web analytics UA-XXXXX-YY code will no
longer work. If you were already using analytics in your Andromo apps,
you MUST generate a new App tracking ID and update the settings in your project.
