New Site Design

  
  
  

We are constantly innovating here at Flurry - working to bring you the best, most powerful and easiest to use products.

One of our best sources of new ideas is the constant stream of suggestions and ideas from developers like you. So, to ring in the new year, we're launching a brand new layout for the Flurry website based on some of the most common requests. All the same great data you've come to rely on is still there, but now it's easier to find.

The following are descriptions of the key changes to help you get the most out of them.


Better Data Visualization

You've probably already noticed that the website now takes up the entire width of your browser. This gives you more room to examine your data and gives us more room to add new visualizations in the future.

There's not much else to say, other than keep your eyes out for new features to take up all the new space in the near future.


Easily find what you need

No matter how well we design the website, there will always be times when you are looking for something that you can't find. For those times we've added a search box in the upper right corner of the screen. Just type in what you are looking for, hit Enter and you'll see all matching results grouped by type (Application, Event, etc.).

On the Search Results page you can filter by what you're looking for using the menu on the left.

You'll also notice a link to the Flurry Wiki for more information and documentation which will automatically take you into the Wiki Search system.


Simplified Navigation

The scope of Flurry Analytics has expanded over the past year to go beyond single applications and provide you with insights on how your entire portfolio is performing. To make it easier to find information about either your Company's portfolio or an individual Application we've changed the tabs at the top to Company and Application.

newTabs
New Tab Navigation

The Company tab includes all of the analytics and information about your entire company's portfolio, including Platform, Category and Device summaries and the Conversion tools. The Applications tab contains the analytics for individual applications. You'll notice that both views include simplified displays of the summary data but the same drill down interface you're already using.

The Home and AppCircle tabs remain unchanged.


One App, One Place

Previously, depending on what you needed to do with your applications you might have needed to go to two or three different sections of the website. Now, all the information and configuration for an application is contained in one place. Just go to the Applications tab and select the application you want. You'll notice that you're taken to the same Analytics view you are used to, with a new menu option "Manage".

newNavigation
Manage Application Menu

This new option collects all of the pages that used to be scattered across the website for managing this application. The options allow you to:

App Info: Change the name of the application, category or any other information that describes this application.

Versions: View all of the versions of this application currently being tracked.

Events: View all of the events tracked in this application, add descriptions and delete any unneeded events.

Permissions: Track who has access to this application and make any necessary changes.

Advanced: Perform advanced operations such as Deleting this application. Only Administrators can perform Advanced operations.


All of these changes are designed to make the Flurry service easier for you to use. If you can think of anything else that we can do to improve the service or have new features you'd like to see fill all the new space, just let us know by clicking on Help.

Comments

I and other developers are amazed that you could do a major redesign that does not include a simple button to see the current day's stat.  
 
I have to click the calendar buttons more than 8 times just to get to the current day. Having to do this every day annoys me like you wouldn't believe. And it only increases with each passing month.  
 
Put in a simple button for the current day please.

That's a great suggestion. We'll update the site next week to include "Today" as one of the default options under the time filter view. As I'm sure you know, changing this once will update all of your metrics on all pages so you should only have to do that once.  
 
In the future if there are similar things that you think would make the site a lot easier to use please let us know by filling out the Help form. We consider all the suggestions that we get.

While it's nice that you are working to improve the site, you don't get kudos for improving the site of your *iOS*-focused business until your website can be viewed on an iOS device. Aka ditch flash so I can browse flurry on my iPad.

First of all, thanks for all the good work. You are doing a great job. Very appreciated. 
 
Please, could you bring back the *average* session lenght (instead of the median). I feel it gives out a better rapresentation of the actual app usage, particularly when using Flurry stats to showcase the strenght of the app. At least make this an optional feature. Thanks!

HTML 5 based charting was originally scheduled to be included in the new site layout but it took a bit longer than we thought. It will be available as part of our next release - keep an eye on this blog for updates.  
 
Average session length is available in the CSV download for the session length metric (the CSV includes both median and average). Now that the new layout allows us to include more information on data tables we'll add it back to the interface as well.  
 
As always, please send suggestions like these to us using the Help link on the side of the screen so we can make sure we get to them.

thanks for your amazing work guys.I appreciate it a lot. 
 
Since the update I am not anymore capable of seeing my graph per day.Is it global bug or only me ? What I mean is that when I click on a the today button per day I get nothing :/

If you have any issues such as selecting zoom views, be sure to refresh the page in your browser. The Javascript and CSS changed but not all of it was set to no-cache so it might not update for your automatically.  
 
We'll add in no-cache tags in the near future to avoid similar problems.

Clearly the 'today' aggregate information lags the event capture. When looking at aggregate data could you please include a timestamp to show when the information was last aggregated?

thanks for the tips guys indeed it's working fine now !

Can you guys please include page views for Android applications? We've been submitting that information now for months via your API calls but no way to see the data. 
 
Was hoping to see it in your redesign...

Oh - and kudos on the new site design! Nice job :)

As a follow-up to the comments on this article, you'll notice that you can now see charts if you log into the Flurry interface using an iOS device (iPhone, iPad, etc.). This should be considered the first version of our HTML 5 support. It's not perfect so we're not announcing it widely but if you can try it out and let us know what issues you find it would be helpful. 
 
We ran into some confusion from users who tried out the "Today" filter we added so we've decided to take more time to improve it. In the meantime if you would like early access to it just send us an email at support@flurry.com.  
 
Again, thanks for all the feedback.
