If you run a website, you need to keep up with its traffic and using Google Analytics is one of the best ways to do it. When you are at home or the office (and at your computer), it is very easy to head over to the Google website. Well what about when you are out or cannot get to a computer? I have looked at a number of different apps to help me monitor my web site analytics but I must say I was very impressed with Dashboard for Google Analytics from Digital-Analytics.biz. It is my new analytics app for iOS.
This is a free app but if you want, you can upgrade to the pro version which gives you all 20 individual goals. If you are familiar with Google Analytics, then you will not need much of an explanation. After you download the app, simply put your Google login information in and the app will begin to setup your account.
I tested this app on my iPad mini and it looked really good. Have multiple sites? No problem, the app shows them all. The app allows you to configure the layout (somewhat) and what values or views are your defaults. It is very easy to move around the app and find the information you need.
Some of the key aspects of the Dashboard for Google Analytics are:
- Real-time dashboard and auto-updating chart
- Strong focus on individual goal conversions and targets
- Quick down drilling to more than 80 detailed reports and charts
Since this is a free app, you need to download it. I really appreciate the layout of the app and how easy it was to find the information I needed without having to do a lot of clicking or searching in the app. If I had to change anything in the app, I would do two things: create a light theme and I would increase the fone size. (This would help us old guys). I definitely can recommend this iOS for any Google Analytics users out there. Check out this video for more information.
