Apple Introduces Updated iTunes Connect Sales Dashboard for Developers

Monday February 17, 2014 4:35 PM PST by Jordan Golson
iTunes ConnectApple has updated the iTunes Connect portal that developers use to track and manage App Store apps. The site has a new Sales and Trends section that allows developers to track sales across certain time periods, sales groups, and more, as well as estimate total revenue amounts, iMore reports.
The lack of modern, useful reporting tools has been a source of developer complaints since developers have been able to complain. Given the size and value of the App Store, and the quantity of both developers and apps, iTunes Connects deserves the attention, and more. Hopefully this is just the beginning.
Many larger developers have forgone iTunes Connect entirely because of its lack of features for more advanced analysis. App Figures and App Annie are two of the more popular app analytics platforms, with many large developers using them to track sales figures across a vast array of categories.

Apple also has an iTunes Connect Mobile iOS app, but it was not updated along side the website today. [Direct Link]

Sad to see that the iTunes Connect iOS app still hasn't even been updated for iOS 7.

Unfortunately, it seems to be just as buggy as the previous version.

Has anyone figured out how to show sales totals for just a single day? Even when selecting just one day using the calendar, it gives me a three-day range of sales.


First thing I thought about...

God, how can you forget to add a "last day" or a "single day" filter...

The iTunes Connect mobile app is borderline useless.

Mainly because it doesn't remember login credentials, so you need to painstakingly type in your long secure password every time. Kind of annoying when it's something you're likely to want to check each day.

It's much faster just to go into the web version using Safari, which of course does remember your password using Keychain.

Would be nice if there was a useful iTunes Connect app, though, so hopefully a redesign is on the way.

Much eager anticipation here. BUT... what I'm interested in is unit sales per app per month, and what it reports is significantly different from the figures in the old-style spreadsheet download (which is still available). Also it is reporting significant sales on the desktop platform, for which I have no products.

There are some nice new features, such as the easy access to lifetime figures, but I cannot understand why the daily sales figures were removed.

This now has an extra day delay for me. It show like Feb, 12. to Feb, 18. in the range selection but shows data only until the 17th.
