Analytix is offering a widget now. The widget takes a 3*1 grid. I’ve tried to merge the data in al 2*1 grid but some sites really have impressive numbers to show! The widgets shows some really useful stuff and houses lots of customization.
If you add the widget to the homescreen you’ll first see a preference screen:
Here you can choose from:
- One of your favorite profiles. The widget is directly linked to Analytix itself and cannot be used without. In Analytix you can define favorite profiles from your profile list. Accounts > Profiles > long press an item in the list > Add to favorites
- For the widget, you can pick one of these profiles.
- Pick a refresh rate, how often should the widget contact Google Analytics to get the latest data(1 hour to 24 hour).
- Pick a theme,choose from solid color, semi transparent or full transparent
- choose three metrics
You’re done,press the back button and the widget will appear on your homescreen!
On top you’ll see the profilename, below the latest update time. This is the date and time when the latest update succeeded. It might happen you didn’t have any connection. So instead of draining your battery and keep trying to connect. The attempt is over and you have to wait for the next update.
Then you’ll see you selected metrics with two numbers. The first number is the metric from yesterday, the second is the metric from today. This is done for fast comparing. If the metric of today is higher or equal then yesterday’s, the colored dot in front of the metric will turn blue, otherwise it’s red.
Bottom right you’ll see the update time. 1h means, this widget is updated every hour.
I hope you’ll enjoy the widget,please let me know!
The widget was causing some forced closes. The service for the widget wasn’t properly shut down, so, when a new version was installed, the running service was forced to stop and a force close was the result. This should be resolved by now.
