Today, Research In Motion announced a new Analytics service for BlackBerry developers.
Powered by webtrends, this much-needed tool will enable mobile app devs the opportunity to observe how their apps are being used. BlackBerry Analytics will provide detailed reports, RIM's developer blog states:
BlackBerry Analytics enables you to collect and analyze data on how your apps are being used. Reports that are generated can provide insight that can be used to understand how users are engaging your app, enhance user experience in order to drive more downloads, learn how to market your app more effectively, and be better able to detect issues as they arise rather than waiting for feedback.
The service will be free and open, with the ability to export reports via file download and import data into spreadsheets. RIM also says it will be "enterprise-class" and will allow for ehfty customization with "the addition of just a few lines of code to your app."
