Application Insight for Windows Store and Windows Phone apps

21 Nov

In the launch keynote of Visual Studio 2013, Brian Harry announced and demoed a new service called Application Insights.

The service is available through Visual Studio Online and “collects, processes and presents a wide variety of telemetry including performance, usage, availability, exception, crash, environment, log and developer-supplied data from all components of a modern application – including clients (devices and browser), servers, databases and services.”

With Application Insights it is possible to gain full insight into your Windows Store and Windows Phone applications; how does the user actually use your app, which features are used the most or least, are there any performance issues and so on. All of this will be presented nicely in a dashboard that can easily be customized to your exact needs directly in Visual Studio Online.

Currently the service is available as limited preview and you can sign up from Visual Studio Online:

Bluefragments have been part of the TAP program since early this year and have followed Tofino become what it is today (truly amazing work by some passionate guys!). Looking forward to integrate Application Insights into our Windows Phone and Windows Store apps.
