App Analytics



Getting an app is such an amazing way to attract more customers and convert more sales. It’s much better if you can know exactly how many customers are using your app, what devices they are using, what pages they view the most, or more importantly, transactions made via mobile app and so on. This significant information now can reach you easily thanks to Google Analytics. However it takes time to install tracking code to your app. How about letting App Analytics do this job for you?
