SoftMeter the in-app analytics for desktop and IOS software applications.

How to monitor your C# application via Google Analytics or Matomo/Piwik

SoftMeter, our application usage analytics library, is a kind of minimal SDK for Google Analytics tracking (and Matomo/Piwik, in Beta).

By embedding SoftMeter in your C# desktop software, you can send hits to Google Analytics or Matomo/Piwik. Then you can use a normal Google analytics or Matomo/Piwik account to remotely monitor and track the usage of your software, together with any exceptions or crashes. Your can see how your software is being used both in real-time and in historical reports, compare month by month, or year by year.

Software Usage Analytics for free with SoftMeter + Google analytics

Google Analytics is the most popular platform for website statistics.

If we imagine our desktop or mobile software as a website, shouldn't we be using the same successful analytics platform also for our software usage analytics?

This is the idea that sparked the creation of SoftMeter, our software usage analytics library for Windows, MacOS and IOS.

Software usage analytics, SoftMeter v0.6.2 was released - Listen to the heartbeat of your software

All developers are asked to upgrade to this version.

There are no API changes, so the "upgrade" is a simple replacement of the previous DLL or dylib by the new one.

Application analytics dashboard | Free analytics for your Windows or MacOS application

As software developers for desktop software, we monitor how visitors arrive at our website, which pages they visit the most, which are the entry and exit pages. We also measure the number our software was downloaded. And then, after the download, there is silence: We do not know if the user installed the software if he/she keeps using it or he/she abandoned it the next day. We do not know how many active users we have. Software usage analytics is the category of tools that can help throw light in these questions that every developer has.

Application analytics is the new tool that allows you to look into these matters for the first time.

Checklist: How to become a hero at your software development house

Application analytics is a new practice and still only very few desktop applications use.

It is unique and powerful because it allows you, for the first time, to see beyond the download of your desktop software.

Here is the opportunity: You can become a development hero by implementing this new practice into your software.

Installation analytics for shareware and desktop software applications

Installation analytics is the technique of gathering installation statistics directly from the distributed software installers.

The developers can see even in real-time the stream of installations and uninstalls of their software, understand the impact of their advertising, detect remote problems immediately after the release.

Having installation analytics in your software is essential for your success in this brutally competitive internet.
