The Google Play Developer Console provides extensive reports that let you track your app's performance after it's been published. You can find out how many installs and uninstalls have happened within particular periods, and can slice and dice the data to find out what devices, Android versions, countries, and languages are most commonly being used.
- [Instructor] After you've published your app…through the Google Play store,…you can get a lot of information about how it's being used…in the real world through the Developer Console.…I'm now logged in under a developer ID…that's being used to publish an application…called Audio Cues.…It's a sound app for live performance.…There have been two different versions of the app…during the development process.…The first had a cute but a hard to remember name…with Qz for cues…but the real version is named Audio Cues…with the word cues spelled as expected.…
Now, I'm going to use this app as a demonstration…because it's been in the Google Play store long enough…to have enough installations and enough real world usage…to get some useful statistics out of it.…I'll click into Audio Cues…and this version of the application…is currently in the beta channel.…That is to say if I click into the APK tab…and look under Beta Testing,…I'll see the whole history of all the APKs…that I've uploaded over time as I found and fixed bugs.…
