If you are looking to setup +Google Analytics into your mobile app for Android, there are plenty of questions you may have if you have little or no experience.  Knowing what you want to track and the best way to do so needs to be figured out before implementation. Organization is key!  

I put together this tutorial to show a very nice way to implement Google Analytics for Android.  I show an advanced setup for multiple trackers and lots of great tips on how to get the best data for you.

I reference sample code from my open-source example project hosted on GitHub.  Links to the source is at the bottom of the article.  

On top of all that good stuff, I have screenshots of the data results collected by the sample project.  I also have a real world example from my most recent application that I been working on, Phandroid News (http://goo.gl/r4Hqdr).

Developers, check this out! I only been using this for about a week now but it has saved a bunch of time troubleshooting a few issues.
Introducing AppCam.IO

A tiny Android SDK that allows developers to easily request high quality screen recordings from users, just by sending them a link!

The SDK handles the requesting permission, actual recording, and the uploading of the video to an online dashboard along with various pieces off device info for the developer to review.

The SDK is only 50kb, requires zero permissions and has zero impact on device performance when it's not in use.

Developers can started with the single-line integration for free at https://appcam.io/

Phandroid.com's Android Forums app has been running the SDK for the last week, and goes into depth about why AppCam's quickly become an important tool in their development process below:

PSA: Firebase Crash Reporting is the cause of ANR at first load... I ran into this myself. Remove the crash dependency and everything else works fine.

Started on 9/13.
What happens when Google's method of preventing apps from crashing causes apps to crash?
