Flurry Analytics Explorer

Flurry Analytics Explorer is a major new feature within Flurry Analytics.

Explorer lets you analyze and interpret actions that users take when they are using your app. That means your engineering, marketing and product teams can slice-and-dice a wide range of data in multiple ways simply by building queries through a menu driven UI. Explorer is ideal for use with ad hoc querying and analysis.

To get the results of your queries, you simply click the Run Query button in the UI. The results are displayed in graphical and numeric form (bar charts and line graphs), enabling you to determine analytically the value of a particular query.

Explorer is a complete integrated feature of Flurry Analytics. For this reason, you won’t need to write a single line of code or change your SDK implementation in any way to use Explorer. However, you many want to consider updating the structure of your Events (e.g. moving data into parameters) to take advantage of the capabilities available within Explorer. For more information, see the references in the Learn More section below

Get Started

To get started, you’ll need to be a registered Flurry developer who has downloaded and integrated the Flurry SDK into your app.

There are no coding or programming prerequisites to work successfully with Explorer. No Explorer SDK for iOS or Android is required. The Flurry Analytics SDK will continue to capture all of your app data, and then a portion of that data is ingested into Explorer for use in this new tool.

Follow these steps to get started:

  1. Log in to the Flurry Developer Portal and navigate to Explorer by clicking on the top navigation item of that name.
  2. Click New Query, or select from example datasets to begin exploring.

You can then flexibly examine this data to test hypotheses, answer questions and drive actionable insights.
