We’re very proud to announce the all-new version of AppViz we’ve been working hard on for over a year.
So what’s new? It would be easier to say what isn’t. In partnership with the Iconfactory, we’ve rethought, redesigned, and redeveloped AppViz, resulting in a more polished, elegant and powerful experience. The app was rewritten from the ground up, its code reviewed and optimized. In addition to a beautiful new interface, we focused on improving performance so that the new features and UI will scream on even modest hardware.
AppViz 3 is packed with powerful features we think you’ll love, from a Dashboard that gives you a bird’s eye view of your market performance, to the Financial module that can reconcile your bank statements with Apple’s financial reports and compute revenue splits with partners. Even our graphs have been redesigned, providing a greater level of detail and analysis.
This release of AppViz also brings two major changes: a web-based service and a subscription pricing model. AppViz has thrived because of our ability to keep up with the constant updates Apple makes to iTunes Connect. We’ve released dozens of updates every year to provide the kind of support and functionality that you’ve come to expect. AppViz.com centralizes our download pipeline. This allows us to monitor, intercept and even fix the errors and changes in Apple’s APIs that would otherwise require you to contact us and wait for an update. It also enables linking your AppViz account across multiple machines and devices. Over the next year we have new releases and features planned to extend and enhance your AppViz experience, and the centralized service is a key part in providing many of those.
If you don’t want your data stored in the cloud, however, we haven’t forgotten you. We are planning to add support for local storage to a future release. This will still use our new service architecture, but it will not store your credentials or data any longer than needed to download the reports. It will come at the cost of some of the features and integration provided by online storage, but we know this is an important option to provide to some of you.
That brings us to the subscription model. AppViz is now absolutely free for tracking a single app. It was important to us that if you’re just starting out, you should be able to benefit from AppViz without having to break the bank or have limited features. We’re fully functional for your first app, forever, for free.
Have a few apps? You can track up to 20 apps for ten dollars a month, or you can save by buying a year up-front for $100. We also offer tiers for 21-50 apps at $20/month or $200/year and 51-100 apps for $30 a month or $300 each year. If you have more than 100 apps, we’d love to talk to you and work out a volume price. Just drop us a line.
So, why switch to a subscription model for version 3? It gives us the freedom to come up with a great idea, or hear one of yours, and be able to deliver it rapidly without holding it for a big, paid release. We previously spent a great deal of time doing releases that fixed issues created by Apple’s changes. The new model lets us fix those problems easily and spend more time on features you want and need.
If you want more information about these changes, Craig Hockenberry of the Iconfactory wrote a detailed blog post explaining some of the thinking that went into them.
We’re excited to take this next step and hope the new version exceeds your expectations. Have questions about anything you’ve read? Be sure to visit our FAQ page to get answers to questions regarding your account, billing, tech support and more.
