Developers have been leveraging Parse to send a half billion push notifications per month to their application users, and now, the app development platform is launching an analytics solution to help its developers obtain insights into their messaging campaigns.
Following the launch of the Parse Push Console for advanced targeting and scheduling of notifications, Parse’s new solution, Push Analytics, enables developers to learn what happens to their messages after they are sent. In fact, the new SDKs allow users to track if their application was launched by a consumer tapping on a push notification, both in real-time and over time.
While existing push customers already have access to the number of users targeted per push as well as graphs that display an app’s pushes over time, the company states that these new tools expose even more detailed information and statistics per push. It is also important to note that the new analytics functionality is not only limited to push notifications, because it allows developers to monitor app opens from within the analytics dashboard too, even if their app isn’t using Parse Push.
