It took a long time coming, but Google has finally released the official mobile apps for Google Analytics, and they are available for download on the Android and iOS platforms.
Luckily, both apps come with real time reports, allowing you to access most of your analytics web and app data right from your mobile devices. And both variants come with optimized user interfaces that maximize the screen real estate when using the applications.
The official statement from the company:
“The app optimizes the Google Analytics report layouts and controls for a mobile environment, so you get the best experience no matter what device you use. For example, the app automatically adjusts the display to fit your screen size, and the navigation is based on touching and swiping instead of traditional keyboard typing.”
The only evident limitations to these applications are advanced account configuration and settings.
For instance, creating properties and views, modifying goals and filters, adding users or changing permissions — one can hope most of these features are gradually added in via future updates. But this is a solid first effort for version 1.0.
In any case these should simplify the lives of online business owners, bloggers, and webmasters everywhere, allowing them the ability to stay updated on your web properties through the day.
