Don’t fly blind, measure your apps from the inside

If you have an app in the Windows Store and the Windows Phone store, you see customer ratings and reviews as well as a store dashboard that provides information like adoption rates, download history, in-app purchases and sales.

But none of this tells you about the users’ specific activity within the app itself. The Windows Apps Team has the 411 today on measuring your app from the inside using telemetry and analytics.

Telemetry, or tele-metering, is automated remote measurement and data collection used for a wide variety of purposes such as tracking spacecraft, tracking wildlife and medical monitoring. Putting an app on the global market is like launching a spacecraft: Without telemetry, you’re flying blind!

So, dial your apps in. The Windows blog has all the details.
