Google offering new app stats to Android Market publishers

Developers and publishers to the Android Market have several new features for tracking app stats starting today.

Here's a rundown on some of the new ways to track your Android app's progress:

  • Viewing installations measured by unique users, as well as by unique devices
  • Carrier and App Version data dimensions for tracking installation trends across mobile operators or monitor the launch metrics of specific app updates
  • Timeline charts with installation peaks and longer-term trends

Dirk Dougherty wrote over on the official Android Developers blog that the goals of making these functions available include enabling publishers to better tune development and marketing efforts.

Finally, we’re bringing you all of the new metrics, dimensions, and timelines in a completely redesigned UI that is faster, more compact, and easier to use. Each dimension is now displayed in dedicated tab, making it easier to click through your stats daily or as often as needed. If you track your stats in another tool, we’re also adding an export capability that lets you download your stats in a single CSV file.

Android Market publishers will be able to find these new tools on the Application Statistics dashboard in the Developer Console.
