We are constantly innovating here at Flurry - working to bring you the best, most powerful and easiest to use products.

One of our best sources of new ideas is the constant stream of suggestions and ideas from developers like you. So, to ring in the new year, we're launching a brand new layout for the Flurry website based on some of the most common requests. All the same great data you've come to rely on is still there, but now it's easier to find.

The following are descriptions of the key changes to help you get the most out of them.

You've probably already noticed that the website now takes up the entire width of your browser. This gives you more room to examine your data and gives us more room to add new visualizations in the future.

New full-width website layout

There's not much else to say, other than keep your eyes out for new features to take up all the new space in the near future.

No matter how well we design the website, there will always be times when you are looking for something that you can't find. For those times we've added a search box in the upper right corner of the screen. Just type in what you are looking for, hit Enter and you'll see all matching results grouped by type (Application, Event, etc.).

Search Box (found in the upper right)

On the Search Results page you can filter by what you're looking for using the menu on the left.

You'll also notice a link to the Flurry Wiki for more information and documentation which will automatically take you into the Wiki Search system.

The scope of Flurry Analytics has expanded over the past year to go beyond single applications and provide you with insights on how your entire portfolio is performing. To make it easier to find information about either your Company's portfolio or an individual Application we've changed the tabs at the top to Company and Application.

New Tab Navigation

The Company tab includes all of the analytics and information about your entire company's portfolio, including Platform, Category and Device summaries and the Conversion tools. The Applications tab contains the analytics for individual applications. You'll notice that both views include simplified displays of the summary data but the same drill down interface you're already using.

The Home and AppCircle tabs remain unchanged.

Previously, depending on what you needed to do with your applications you might have needed to go to two or three different sections of the website. Now, all the information and configuration for an application is contained in one place. Just go to the Applications tab and select the application you want. You'll notice that you're taken to the same Analytics view you are used to, with a new menu option "Manage".

Manage Application Menu

This new option collects all of the pages that used to be scattered across the website for managing this application. The options allow you to:

App Info: Change the name of the application, category or any other information that describes this application.

Versions: View all of the versions of this application currently being tracked.

Events: View all of the events tracked in this application, add descriptions and delete any unneeded events.

Permissions: Track who has access to this application and make any necessary changes.

Advanced: Perform advanced operations such as Deleting this application. Only Administrators can perform Advanced operations.

All of these changes are designed to make the Flurry service easier for you to use. If you can think of anything else that we can do to improve the service or have new features you'd like to see fill all the new space, just let us know by clicking on Help.
