  • More robust source/medium reporting than Google Analytics – less focused on Google Play only.
  • Are your customers progressing as you hoped they would? Is level 3 too hard? Is the menu easy to navigate? Answer these questions by exploring User Paths, which show you how customers move through Events. Identify any hiccups in the flow and make sure the user experience is a good one.
  • Easily create Funnels to measure conversion through any series of steps you’d like consumers to complete, such as making purchases, completing tutorials, or advancing through levels in a game. Funnels calculate for all of your historical data, so you can create them at any time.
