How do I track the total number of downloads of my BB10 App

Hi,

 

I am not sure of this is the right section to post it in, but this is the best one I could find.

 

I want to track the total number of downloads of my BB10 APP on the blackberry world. The download report is very simplistic and just generates a chart leaving me to count manually. I also tried exporting the download data to excel. Although this works, its a little cumbersome. Is there any other way for me to be able to view this data easily as of now? Or do we have to wait for the analytics tool SDK to be made available for BB10?

Thanks

This is good, but this is a third party. Doesn't blackberry offer something similar?

I prefer to use Distimo (http://www.distimo.com/), also third party but in my opinion even better than http://www.appworldreport.com.

Because in Distimo you can add more than only the BlackBerry World, also Google Play Store and others. So all your apps can be viewed in one single place.

Would be nice if you could see at least the number of downloads in BlackBerry World on a simple way, but at the moment this isn't possible.


A like is always appreciated,
but a nomination for BB Elite even more :-)

Sounds like a good alternative, thanks!
Maybe mods at BB see this and give us at least very basic functionality like viewing total downloads if not full analytic reports. It would make the download reports section a little more useful!

I hear what you're saying but with limited resource I'd prefer they fixed the web site and BBW problems first.

If customers can't find our products then knowing the correct download numbers is only going to be depressing. :smileyhappy:

I've tried to upload my csv's here and it gives me this error:

 

Can't match all apps in file. We update every day, please retry tomorrow

 

Anyone else having better luck with this site?

 

I'm going to try the other one too.

I agree with .
BlackBerry 10 is a very good OS, but the technical support (in the sense of BlackBerry World) isn't that good, not for normal users and not for developers. But I'm certain that BlackBerry is doing as much as possible to solve this.
