    Distimo launches free app store analytics tool for mobile developers


    Distimo, a Netherlands app store analytics company, today announced the public beta launch of Distimo Monitor, a free app store analytics tool for mobile developers that is said to offer insight into the performance of a developer's apps and their competitors' in multiple app stores.

    Distimo Monitor collects all relevant statistics about mobile applications across all app stores and provides developers with a comprehensive dashboard that includes the total daily downloads, revenues and rankings worldwide of their application(s). It also allows the developer to see how they stack up against their competitors by comparing their own apps against competitive apps in any country. Developers can then use this knowledge to adjust pricing and distribution channels to maximize the growth and revenue streams of their apps.

    Features of Distimo Monitor are said to include: 

    • Free to use
    • Monitor daily download and revenue figures
    • No code insertion required in the developer's application
    • Provides valuable insight into performance of competing applications
    • Monitor unlimited number of applications
    • Currency conversion for all major currencies
    • Support for multiple stores including the Apple App Store and Google Android Market

    "The mobile application space is extremely competitive and it is challenging for developers to gain insight into what is really happening in the various stores," states Vincent Hoogsteder, CEO and co-founder of Distimo. "We previously worked for a mobile app developer, and Distimo Monitor was born from the challenges we experienced firsthand with distributing apps in mobile app stores. An increasing number of developers are now distributing their apps in multiple app stores, and Distimo Monitor supports them by taking away all of the manual reporting work required with distributing an application in multiple stores."

    Distimo Monitor plans to add additional support for other app stores including BlackBerry App World, Nokia Ovi Store, Palm App Catalog, Windows Marketplace for Mobile, as well as mobile operator and independent stores such as Verizon VCast and GetJar.
