[BETA] VendorTool - Tool for reports and statistics

I've developed as a hobby project a reporting tool for BB App World vendors. My idea was to be able to take a quick look at the vendor reports using my BlackBerry. So here it is (version 1.0.7)
http://quite-simple.com/dev/beta/VendorTool.jad

How it works?

Start screen, choose between Revenue/Count and Statistic report, load the report file (both zip and csv supported)

For Downloads report you get the count already,

but if it is a Purchase report you need to setup app prices

Once you set all prices (it is one time action, prices will be saved), return to previous screen.

Estimated revenue is calculated based on USD price and 70% dev share of the base app price

Now let's look at the statistics (6 different filters)

All reports (including revenue/count report) can be exported to CSV for further processing

Any input/suggestions/ideas/bug reports are mostly welcome :smileyhappy: I hope that you will find the app useful :smileyhappy:

I intend  to submit this tool as a free app in BB App World. So speak now or... don't write negative review later :smileytongue:

Re: [BETA] VendorTool - Tool for reports and statistics

You might like to take a look at Distimo Monitor. It's an on-line reporting tool for App World, Android Market and Apple App Store. Pretty nifty. You give them read-only access to the vendor portal, and they collect, process and present the info for you in a handy drill-down dashboard. 

 

The stats for Android Market are way off due to the way Google provides (or rather, fails to provide) data, but the stats for App World have been exact to the dollar when compared to the Digital River payouts. Don't know about App Store.

VendorTool updated to version 1.1.8 to address the recent change in App World reports format, same URL for download.

 

As for Distimo - I'm just paranoid :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy:

I've developed as a hobby project a reporting tool for BB App World vendors.

You beat me to it! I've long wanted to build a similar application. This is awesome and I hope you release it. Thanks! A guarenteed 5-star review from me.
