Twitter “Fabric” Offers Real-Time App Analytics


New app will allow developers to access user analytics and crash data while on the go.

Twitter’s collection of mobile developer tools, dubbed Fabric, has now enabled those developers to access real-time data about their apps via a new Android and iPhone app. Users can now access crash data, daily user stats and active user stats from a  dashboard on their phones. The app also allows the user to set push notifications for “critical,” “priority,” or “all” events. The notifications will also appear on the Apple Watch.

The app was developed after the makers of Runkeeper, a fitness app, reached out to Fabric to express their frustration at not being able to access Fabric as often on the weekends, when they and their users are most on the go. Fabric responded with the Fabric for iOS and Fabric for Android apps.

The app gathers real-rime data about app crashes and issues, and provides a full stack trace, number of users affected, and a breakdown of devices and platforms used. The aim is to help developers prioritize their responses and speed resolutions. It’s built around the Crashlytics crash reporting tool which was acquired by Twitter in 2013.

The apps can be downloaded for free from the App Store and Google Play.
