At first glance, the new interface for the analytics service is the best thing since sliced bread -- it's slick, sexy and has several new features that I am super pumped about like the report email feature. This service has a bright future.
Unfortunately, after using the new design for only a couple days, I found myself switching back to the old version quite often due to some of the limitations the new one currently has. I'm not the only one who feels this way -- Haochi from Googlified has the same opinion.
So what's wrong with it? Well, the most obvious and annoying limitation I constantly notice is the lack of a 24 hour view. If you want to see what happened on a particular day in a graph view, you can't. This is particularly unhelpful in reports that are sent to you daily -- the charts you get look almost identical day to day because they are displayed in month view.
In the same way viewing small amounts of data has become more difficult, looking at trends year over year has become quite a chore -- and even when you do get the range you want selected, your charts begin to look very cluttered.
Overall though, I'm not as disappointed as Haochi, but I hope these minor things can be fixed sooner rather than later.
