Accessing Google Analytics and Piwik through Adobe Air applications

Everything is great about analytics but over time analytics loses its value because of these two problems

  • It is hard to access
  • You do not know what actions to take based on the reports
  •  

    Making Analytics easy to access

    We’ll look at how we can solve the first issue on this post, being hard to access.

    Google Analytics has a great way of setting up alerts and scheduling of sending reports that makes it easy for you to access data. The problem with things being sent to you is that you are not motivated to view them. For me, my analytics reports land on my inbox once every 2 weeks and I barely look at them. What I really do to view what my visitors are doing is use custom applications that read analytics data and I can access information that is important for me through these. Here are a bunch of applications on iphone and Adobe Air that you can use to keep track of your analytics.

    For this post we’ll mainly focus on free applications:
