Flurry Ups the Mobile Application Analytics Ante with Audience Segmentation(August 03, 2011)
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 03, 2011
Flurry, the industry leader in mobile app audience growth and monetization solutions, today announced the immediate availability of Analytics 3.0, a major set of feature upgrades for its industry-leading mobile app analytics service. With the addition of audience segmentation and demographic estimation, Analytics 3.0 invites all developers to meet their app audiences. Any Flurry customer can immediately use these powerful new features without any changes to the Flurry SDK or re-submission to app stores. Flurry Analytics remains absolutely free.
In two short years, mobile applications have crossed the chasm from fad to formidable mass media channel, now challenging the web in terms of reach, and television in terms of engagement, said Simon Khalaf, Flurrys president and chief executive. Adding audience segmentation features to our audience measurement platform, we empower Flurry publishers to increase their audience size through better media and in-app-purchase sales.
For any marketer, the process of segmenting, targeting and positioning is the cornerstone of any strategic marketing process. Flurry Analytics 3.0 supports this approach, allowing mobile application developers to segment their audiences and target their most valuable segments with the right products and services. Developers can segment their audiences based on location, age, gender, app category interests and usage, giving them visibility into how different groups use their applications and respond to different programs.
Flurry Analytics 3.0 ships with pre-defined usage segments to give developers immediate insight into their heavy, medium and occasional users. With this view, developers can understand what aspects of the application these segments use most. Developers can also create their own custom segments to conduct deep cohort analysis, evaluate the performance of user acquisition campaigns, and measure segment by segment retention, among other use cases.
In addition to audience segmentation, Flurry Analytics 3.0 provides developers the demographic make-up of their audience using Flurry estimates. These estimates compute the age group and gender of app audiences based on a core sample and extrapolation algorithms. This additional segmentation information adds to existing geographical and behavioral segmentation already available in Flurry Analytics.
Over the past two years, Flurrys growth has paralleled the mobile application markets own unprecedented growth. Flurry Analytics, which launched in January 2009, now reaches 300 million monthly unique users worldwide and tracks 6 billion transactions per day.
