Say hello to App Insights: the quickest way to analyze in-app user flow and gather mobile feedback.
With methinks’ new App Insights dashboard and SDK, you can track your app user journeys, create event-triggered in-app surveys, live intercepts*, and store review prompts*. All with a simple 10-minute setup.
But, What is an SDK?
For those unfamiliar with SDKs, don’t worry, it’s much less complicated than it sounds. SDK stands for Software Development Kit. An SDK is a downloadable, installable software package that includes the tools needed to enhance and build a platform. In the case of the methinks App Insights, methinks provides you with the App Insights SDK and the web dashboard so that you can track user journeys, create custom event-triggered surveys, and (if needed) intercept users in real-time.
App Insights: How it Works
To start, implement the App Insights SDK in your App (it takes less than 10 minutes!). As soon as your users start using your app with the methinks App Insights SDK implemented, your users’ journey will be automatically captured in the form of screenshots and be available to track and analyze in the methinks App Insights dashboard.
What’s new in the methinks dashboard?
If you used methinks in the past, you know that you can host research projects, 1-on-1 and focus group video interviews, app tests, and more by using the General Dashboard. The difference is that now methinks is working to support you with even more sets of tools that you might need when hosting a research project, testing an app (Mobile UX Dashboard), or in the case of App Insights, enabling you to track user journeys and create in-app surveys in your app.
The great news is that you can access all 3 dashboards anytime, in one place.
