Google has today announced that it is significantly upgrading the Application Statistics panel that it offers to developers who publish apps on the Android Market. It is adding a bunch of new metrics and analyzing tools, and has revamped the UI of the panel.

Google says that it has added metrics that track the following new performance statistics by user installation:

  • Countries of installation
  • Patform versions
  • Device models
  • Active installs
  • Total installs
  • Daily installs
  • Daily uninstalls

On a per-device basis, you can also see:

  • Active installs
  • Daily installs
  • Daily uninstalls
  • Daily upgrades

There are also tow new ways to analyze app data by Carrier and App Version. Developers can use this to see how update releases are performing and how they propagate on various carrier networks. There is also a new timeline chart that gives developers an ‘at a glance’ look at how their app installations perform over time. This can help to determine the best time to schedule a promotion or price change, and to see how well the app updates are working for users.

The new interface looks pretty nice, and is a good step up from the older panel. This new improvement to statistics really puts Apple’s App Store stats offerings to shame. They don’t offer a fraction of the ways that Google does to track app updates. Hopefully this will help encourage them to up their game.
