This is a guest blog post from Bill Hodak, Director of Product Marketing at New Relic, the SaaS-based application management provider and a Joyent partner.
If you’re a mobile app developer, you know the challenges of getting your app to market. With over 1.5 million available apps in the Apple App Store and Google Play alone, the competition for user adoption is fierce. The difference between a successful app and one that fails can come down to speed to market, application performance and a high quality user experience.
Until now, there has been no way to have actionable insight into the performance of you apps. With multiple points of possible failure, whether deep within the application code, in the mobile device itself, or in calls to third party APIs such as Facebook, PayPal and Twitter, you could only guess at the quality of the user experience and the precise location of performance bottlenecks.
Today we’re excited to announce the availability of New Relic for Mobile Apps. Now the same powerful, real time performance data you’ve come to rely on is available for your native iOS and Android applications. For the first time ever, you’ll have in-depth insight into real users, sessions and finger swipes as they happen.
