Get data on App-User relationship after launch using MS App Center Analytics and Diagnostics tools.

You have now developed the app and have also launched it, now you need real-time data on how users are interacting with your app. Are they using the new feature you just released or did they barely notice it or are they facing crashes in certain scenarios on certain devices.
It is vital to be aware of real-time data on the experience of the app as observed by the users, it will eventually translate into setting the priorities on your project plan and provide insight on the value; the app was able to gain with the recent changes you made. Apps have become very competitive, we can’t afford to lose a user because the app crashed on his phone.
Using Analytics and Diagnostics tool from Microsoft App Center, we can get following insights:
1. Geographical adaptability of the app. In which regions you app is being extensively used and popular.
2. Hardware and OS Version distribution of the user.
a. Which android devices and android versions are dominant in my user pool?
b. Have my users started using my app on the new iOS version?
3. Average-time users spend time on my app daily.
4. Average number of users/sessions on a single day.
5. Where and what crashes the users faced, how often did they occur and why did they occur?
6. Making use of events to find out, how users are interacting with your app.

The agenda of this workshop would be to enable the users to get familiar with these tools and get to know how to use them and eventually benefit from the data that they can get.

I am dedicated to make significant contribution to the Xamarin community and enabling developers learn more about Cross platform mobile apps and groom myself around the same along the way. I aim to achieve a strong portfolio of 5 star apps built with Xamarin and also helping the community achieve the same. I do this because, I have been often pitched by the idea, that the cross-platform mobile development has proven to be more time-consuming and cost-ineffective than developing both apps native, but i negate the idea pushing the thought that it is important to pursue Cross Platform Mobile Development with strong research, learning and training and only then you can make it work.
