Russian search engine Yandex announced today a new mobile app analytics tool, Yandex Metrica for Apps. According to the announcement, the analytics solution is a free tool available to mobile developers worldwide, allowing them to create personalized app-audience profiles and usage reports.
Russia’s largest search engine confirmed its new mobile app analytics solution was built to work on Android, iOS and Windows Phone platforms. With 25 different apps “enjoyed by millions” on various mobile devices, Yandex says:
The main reason why we made an app stats tool from scratch, instead of using any of those currently available on market, is that we wanted a reliable, as well as quick and easy, way to learn about the audience and usage of each of the 25 apps that we’ve made so far. None of the analytics solutions could offer us the answer to our questions about our apps stats in real-time.
Yandex claims its analytics tool allows developers to build reports based on a number of parameters, including: users’ country and users interface language, app versions, operating systems, screen resolution, connection type, user actions, and session details.
Additional metrics provided by the Yandex Metrica for Apps include device type and crash reports.
