"Bug reporting and analytics"

What do you like best?

It is multiplatform , easy to use , free of charge for the most part and offers many useful features for the developer

What do you dislike?

ush notifications are very limited, so are tests, and that is a key part of an application's success.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It should offer more free features.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have solved several problems. With app center we have managed to debug the application failures until they disappear. We can also obtain analysis on the use of the application by users.

"The key to success is to give your users what they are looking for..."

What do you like best?

Xamarin Insights is an essential part of the designs. Since I've been building apps for more than 10 years, I always knew if I had the right tools, tools that shows me what's inside the mind of my users, what are I'm missing in my UI/UX, I will have a strong (less buggy) and more friendly (easy to use) app. Vital.

This NuGet package works well for most of my releases, including simple Xamarin Forms apps.

The code, in pure C#, is very simple to write. The SDK is light weight, though flexible.

Of course, one of the most important aspects is the Dashboard, which shows useful information. Nevertheless, in real life, and from my experience, you'll have to code and use the API in order to get the most of this great "addon" to your Xamarin app. No matter the size (that's important to know).

It's backed up by Microsoft, so it won't just go away, it's solid. You'll just need to be stay informed and updated about changes in both Xamarin and Android SDKs.

What do you dislike?

The speed could be a bit faster, it isn't essential for most apps, but it may certainly be for a game or a chat system.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just stay updated, even if you're not told so. Many of the problems you'll find are simply a matter of SDK updates. Ask in forums and read related blogs.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I know my users/clients much better now.

"Best tool for analytics i have ever used"

What do you like best?

This is the best tool for providing analytics and event tracking for the apps you are developing. It is the best product i have used so far. It is really easy to know what caused your app crash and what makes it slow...

I like that it is not hard to use and provides tons of data about your app performance.

What do you dislike?

The price. I know I shouldn't expect good products to be free but i still believe it is kinda expensive. It was fine while I was using the beta and it was free.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Xamarin Insights is not easy. The UI needs improvement, also the registration took me a couple of days because there was some problem with my API key...

But once you get used to it you will love it!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am developing mobile applications. Xamarin Insights helps me know what i can improve on my apps and how to get better performance.

"Very nice but very expensive solution"

What do you like best?

It has a very intuitive, consistent UI. It was still in Beta when I was using it, but it looked fantastic. Hardly the most important thing for an analytics platform but it made using it a pleasant experience.

What do you dislike?

The price. It was still in Beta so we were using it for free on some of our newer apps, but some of the numbers that were talked about were huge.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Have a look into pricing before you spend too much time playing with integrations.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Analytics for Xamarin apps. Unsurprisingly the integration with Xamarin apps was great, and it gave great information about user journeys.

"A New Tool for Monitoring Cross-Platform Mobile Apps"

What do you like best?

I think it's amazing because it is important gathering details when your app crashes, understanding of how users are interacting with your app, the version of the operating system, and other critical system information like available memory and battery life and etc.

What do you dislike?

Registering for an API Key from the Xamarin Insights Dashboard is a long process.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you have an app and your users are experiencing problems, you need to know, and fast. Even if they are not experiencing problems, you want to know how they are interacting with your app. We use Xamarin Insights for that purposes.
