I found the google analytics SDK very easy to integrate with some of my android apps, however the problem I have is with the web dashboard. It's not straightforward to use, and mobile analytics seems to be the poor cousin of the web analytics version. Even finding data on something as simple as user timings (which was very easy to code into the app) is difficult. I know it must be capturing a tonne of useful data but visualising it and actually getting some useful insights from it is another story...

Are there any good (ideally free) alternatives out there, where it's actually easy to interpret the data?

Cheers, Matt

There are some alternatives visualizations of the same data. Did you check out some apps for the same:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...pps.ganalytics

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...yticsdashclock

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...dhur.dashclock

You should really put a disclaimer: "I am the developer of this app". Your dashclock extension looks nice and simple though.

Those overview statistics like screen views and downloads are fine and a nice morale boost, but what I'm really interested in is actionable data that points to specific things in the app that need improvement.

E.g. If 80% of users leaving a certain screen after a few seconds it might point to the screen being confusing. Things like that.

Thanks for the suggestion, but there is not a function that can analyze the source of the downloading as Google PC analyze. Could you recommend another one?

If you are looking for website similar to Google Analytics you can try Flurry I don't know if you can use it on your smartphone as a Mobile App but for sure it's good alternative for google analytics!

Thank you for this, I think I'll try flurry because the analytics the google play console provides are just not enough.

just learned that Flurry has a very useful customer behavior analytics. I think we should also try this aside from Google Analytics.

Thumbs up
I know some tool for tracking your user the name

Admob Analytics:
The biggest ad provider for mobile devices, currently has an analytics platform for the mobile web in beta

App Clix
it offers developers an analytics product, not an analytics service. With App Clix, developers runs analytics through their own server environment, cutting out the ability for the middle man to review the analytics data without authorization

Bango
Bango provides identification for every user accessing the app, providing information like the user's carrier and connection speeds. You can also use Bango to drive mobile app campaigns and implement tracking for other application features

Pinch Media & Flurry Analytics
They provide a free specialized service for analytics in mobile apps. They allow you to tap into user info with the approval of the user, giving you location, age, time, session lengths and more.
