Hi Boostrapped Community,
My desktop application runs on Windows and Mac, and I’m looking to add analytics and the ability to target/message users with announcements, promos, etc. I’m having a difficult time finding solutions specifically for desktop apps. Most new analytics solutions only have SDKs for web and iOS/Android apps.
On the analytics front, I’m considering Revulytics, Count.ly and Amplitude. Google Analytics is not an option since it doesn’t provide raw data access. Amplitude doesn’t have desktop SDKs, but they have a REST API.
On the messaging front, there doesn’t seem to be much out there for desktop apps except for Revulytics’ ReachOut feature… Maybe I have to build my own…
Does anyone have experience and recommendations with solutions to tackle these two challenges?
