Analytics Are Fun

I recently started adding analytics to my apps to get an idea of how many of the people that downloaded my apps were actually still using them. Well, the data is finally coming in and I was shocked to see how widespread the user base is for Windows Phone 7 now.

You may be able to get a sense of the number of countries involved by looking at download counts in the App Hub, but it doesn't really hit you until you see it on a map. Here is the map for my apps showing some of the early app run data.

If you are interested in adding analytics to your Windows Phone 7 app, check out the Runtime Intelligence Service available from PreEmptive Solutions. Here is a good walk-through video to get you started. It also talks about dotfuscation, which can help you to protect your source code.
