Team Countly is working hard and listening full ears! We just added another feature to our Countly Cloud service which has been requested from you. Now Countly Cloud members can see how many active users are using their application at that moment.
This gives greater insights, like understanding which reason caused an increase on live users. Moreover, it’s now unnecessary to try to guess how many online users your application is seeing at a particular time. With the introduction of online users, Countly is now better than ever.
Screenshot below shows two gauges showing instant online and first time users. There’s also a “MAX" parameter there, which shows all-time maximum users for a particular box type.
Next to those gauges, we have a simple, live chart which shows the number of online users and new users, in two colors (blue and orange). It’s easy to identify color symbolications here - watch the blue and you’ll see online, watch the orange and new users have you.
While these do look like simple additions, dashboard feels much better now. Moving gauges show you exactly what’s happening at that very moment. Chart moves smoothly as it gives insights about whether usage trend is increasing or decrasing. All dashboard is now more intuitive and heuristic.
This feature is only available in our Cloud. If you are interested, or simply subscribe to our cloud and we’ll send you a free account for your simple analytics needs. We are still investigating the pricing model, however make sure that there’ll be a very cheap (if not free) price for entry level mobile analytics needs.
